The Sambalaya Shoppe on SoundBetter

Singer and songwriter with the unparalleled ability to sound like many Top 40 favorites! Get P!nk, Britney, Amy Winehouse, Erykah Badu and others from JUST ONE VOCALIST!

Sam is an industry recognized singer, writer, and artist with over 18 years in the recording industry. As the owner of The Sambalaya Shoppe, Sam offers vocal services to producers, composers, and songwriters all over the world directly from her own studio. Projects can include full demos, backing vocals, or even song writing and vocal editing.

As production staff beneath producer Andrew Lane (High School Musical), Sam honed in on her ability to sound like many popular singers - Britney Spears, Amy Winehouse, Nelly Furtado, and Erykah Badu to name a few. This signature "vocal mimicking" technique is what lead to the opportunity to be featured alongside Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes on the posthumous album Eye Legacy in 2009. Since then, she’s demoed countless songs for many young stars of The Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, and more urban artists like Ciara.

Sam is also an educated audio engineer with a Bachelor of Science in Audio Production. In 2011, she was an assistant Live Programmer for Nicki Minaj during her stint on Britney Spears' Femme Fatale Tour. “It was my job as a Live Programmer to ensure that all pre-recorded audio ran smoothly. And in the same way, it's my job as your hired vocalist to ensure that the audio you receive from me is recorded flawlessly.”

If you're looking for high quality, fair pricing, and a seasoned recording artist, look no further.

    Working with Sam was so easy. She's truly a professional at what she does. I could've given her more info and been more detailed than I was about my expectations, but she quickly picked up on my vision for the song and nearly brought tears to my eyes from how good it was. She's very talented, good at vocal layering, and I will be back for more. :)

    Sam was great to work with. She took a rough idea and really built on it and gave me optional talks to work with. I'm looking forward to doing more work with her immediately.

    Sam is BEYOND talented. Her vocals are like magic, instantly making any song she sings on a billion times better (at least!) Her instincts are spot on. She delivered flawless performances on both of my projects. I can't wait to work with her again!

    Sam is undeniably talented as both a singer and a recording professional. Her voice is extremely versatile and can adapt to just about any style of music. She is very easy to work with (responsive, fast, friendly) and creative as a writer. Would definitely recommend her for just about any musical endeavor!

    Sam has helped me more in one session than so many other producers and writers that I’ve worked with in the industry. She is proficient in recording, arranging, harmonizing and comping vocals. Especially great at writing as well. The best part of Sam is that she does all of this with a brilliantly pleasant disposition and a wonderful attitude that makes you feel comfortable and at ease. I highly recommend working with her.

    Sam has the voice, production capability, and imagination to truly hit it out of the park on remote vocal tracks. Lead top-line, background vibe, or both -- Sam's my go-to.
