1 ReviewsEndorse Rivkah
I have worked with Rivkah few years ago with a song 'Falling for You'. She was really profesional, focused and dedicated to our project. Final effect was better than expected, overall process went really smooth and without any issues nor problems. I strongly recommend Rivkah as a signer as well as a musician to work with.
Interview with Rivkah
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Have a clear vision of what you want from the outcome. Even if that vision is vague, it's important to have some sort of vision so that we can reflect once the project is completed and check if we fulfilled that vision.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I worked on the violin parts for a song that was pitched to Bruno Mars. I loved that experience because the head producer gave me the freedom to apply my creativity in any way. We came out with some unique and catchy folky violin tunes which added an interesting dynamic to the funk song.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on my second album and hope to release it in 2021.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I don't worry too much about the production type in terms of analog or digital. For country or folk songs, perhaps analogue adds a more authentic feel. My main focus is to write original pieces of music and record powerful and emotive vocals.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will put my heart and soul into your project - everything I do is authentic and true paired with skillful attention.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love that I get to constantly use my creative muscle and work with others on different projects. It's important to listen to those who you collaborate with and respond accordingly.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That singing just comes to you naturally - yes, for some people but I've worked extremely hard at it and still have 2 vocal coaching lessons per week and train for roughly and hour and a half every day. Singing is like a sport (you're literally exercising your vocal organs).
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My microphone, headphones, laptop, camera and audio interface.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been in the music industry since I was seven years old. Starting with performing violin at big festivals, then onto singing in the World's number one choir, and eventually launching my solo career as a singer and songwriter in 2013. I have since had my music on many top 40 charts and television channels. I've toured the US, Europe and South Africa and performed at some of the world's best venues.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have an awesome songwriting studio set up with an Aston Spirit condenser microphone, Yamaha audio interface, a vocal booth, key boards, Logic Pro, and monitors.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Andrea Bocelli - he has amazing vocal control and gives attention to every word and melody.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly write songs for clients and sing the female lead and backing vocals of those songs.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Depending on the project, I usually start with consolidating the lyrics, melody and overall feel of the song. I then practice the performance of the vocal a few times until I feel it is best matched for the mood of the song. Then it's time to record and rerecord until the sound is perfect. The last stage is editing the vocals until they sound absolutely fantastic (tuning, effects, timing, etc).
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a fresh creativity that communicates the heart of the song.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Songwriting for sure! I write great hooks and am really good with combining lyrics and melodies.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on pop, electronic and house music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: When recording vocals, name each take so that it's easier to edit later.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Calvin Harris because he has a good mix of electronic music.
Q: How would you describe your style?
