The Vitamin String Quartet is a group of Los Angeles-based studio musicians who have carved out a unique niche for themselves, recording new versions of songs by well-known rock, pop, and country artists, arranged for a small string ensemble. The Vitamin String Quartet have released well over 100 albums (through their own Vitamin Records label), most of which feature the songs of a single artist (and in some cases interpret a single album in full), though the group has also released thematic collections based on a particular mood, style, or genre. The quartet's membership is flexible, but violinist and arranger Tom Tally has been a significant contributor to the group, having produced and arranged 35 of their albums. In 2009, the Vitamin String Quartet took a creative step forward with their album Per_Versions, which along with tunes from a number of alternative pop groups, included several original compositions. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
