Like always working with Tamika was such a pleasure, she is super fast, she is good in communicating and is so so talented. What a voice! Exactly what I was looking for and will work with her again for sure.
Tamika did a beautiful job on the tune. The main vocal was stellar. I let her decide what to do about harmonies, and she did a great job on those too. She worked very fast, handling the job in far less than a week. I didn't have to have her make any corrections. I couldn't ask for a better experience.
Tamika's work on our project was nothing short of magical. Our team was astonished by her ability to nail the parts, turn her work around in short time and in the end, really level up the project with her contributions. She made it seem easy. A real pro. Thanks Tamika
She is so a wonderful and powerful singer not yet found.
I am so glad to have found a jewel who can shine my work to the world!!!!!
Tamika is a joy to work with and delivers the goods! It’s as simple as that
I think a successful song is in the details. Tamika worked so professionally and with such attention to details. Like, the harmonies are so tight I did not have edit at all. Totally aligned with my lead vocal. And really expressing along with the song and communicating the words that she's singing. A true artist, and just a wonderful person. I'll definitely be finding ways to have her a part of my music in the future.
I wanted real heart-filled gospel vocals on my original song. Many singers can pull from this style, but it's not authentic. Tamika is the REAL DEAL! Of course she can sing in many styles, but if you want real southern church, she's it. AND, all her tracks were top shelf because she herself is an engineer. All tracks aligned with my vocals perfectly. And she brought her own arrangement ideas that I ended up hiring her for as well. A lovely human being and I'll always be grateful for her gift.
Again it was such a pleasure to work with Tamika she is very talented and delivers exactly what you want. Super professional and very quick, good communication, love her voice. I can only recommend her and will defo ask her for another job.
Tamika is super talented and has an amazing voice. She did exactly what I asked her to do and the communication was great. She is a true professional and I am definitely coming back to her for another song!
Good vocals that don't need autotune, clean recording and she has good communication skills! Tamika is a very pleasant person to work with.
Tamika is a model professional with a killer voice. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
