Charlotte was was the ideal Singer/Songwriter to put my idea of a custom version of a pop rock song into reality. She cared a lot about my wishes and was passionate about the project. Communication was great, she provided good advice and was ahead of the time frame. Her skills made the sond rich in variety. I am delighted and highly recommend her!
Interview with Charlotte Lubbock
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To approach all sessions with honesty and an open mind.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The variety - of both the people I collaborate with / work for & the music.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Singer's aren't musicians... Us good ones are!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Time scale / Where the songs going / How much vocal is needed / Where does the recording need to take place.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be as specific with your requirements as you want the result. If you're open to suggestions, let me know. Chatting through ideas is the best way forward in my experience.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: - Pen - Paper - Piano - Mac - Mic
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: My career path so far has gone like this... Brit School of Performing Arts > Front heavy rock band and tour relentlessly, release album etc > Set up vocal coaching business > session & voice coach primarily, gigging on the side > write and release solo album (currently in the process of doing this!). My first gig was when I was 12 and my first session was when I was 17. It's in my blood.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Unique and I always mean it.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Billy Joel because he's a great timeless songwriter and inspiration to me.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on pop and soul tracks.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I work well with instruction. Tell me honestly what you're after and I'll happily take it on and change what I'm doing to fit your requirements. Equally, I love putting my own spin on music... So free reign is always fun too!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A versatile voice that can work with anything, experience in creating a finished piece, suggestions for layers to complete the song.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Usually, songwriters send me their current tracks with a guide vocal (a few days before the session if I go to them - usually I do) & I learn the track ready for quick recording upon arrival. I will also always suggest harmonies if any come naturally to see if the writer would like to use it.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I only have a basic set up at home... Garageband & Samson condenser microphone, as well as a bluebird style condenser microphone for the according projects. I often use friends studios locally as they have more equipment options.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm influenced by many many artists! From Etta James to Sarah Vaughn, Alannah Myles to P!nk, & Elton John to Julie Andrews! Told you I was versatile!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Primarily I work with songwriters needing a professional voice to complete their song before submission to record labels. This often also involves some changes to the tracks (extra layers / changes to structure) if song writers ask for my feedback on whether the vocal track works as a whole from a singer's perspective.
