Shelley H on SoundBetter

Over 40 Million Spotify & Youtube Streams. Multi-skilled expert singer/songwriter. Emotionally driven top quality vocals. Songs featured on many film/tv shows. I’ve written for Grammy Award winning producers & artists all over the globe. I work in all genres and I pay attention to detail to deliver the best result for you.

I've been recording vocals and writing songs for many years. I LOVE what I do and I love working with creative people from all over the world. I work across all genres and styles and can adjust my tone from soft and fragile through to belting to fit your project description. Various vocal styles can be found here on my profile page.

I'm a great communicator with a fast turn around time. I use a Studio Projects C1 Condenser Microphone OR a Rhode NT2 with a Scarlett Focusrite pre-amp in Logic Pro. I like to use CLA wave Plugins for playback but will deliver quality dry 24bit 48k.wav files.

I’m versatile, patient and will listen carefully so we can collaborate to achieve your desired outcome.

Where possible I will try to get sync opportunities for the songs I create with my film/tv connections (Universal, BMG, EMI, Netflix, Spotify Headquarters, Disney and more)

Pricing varies depending on the project please contact me to discuss.

Songwriting/Topline: please contact for pricing

No features unless discussed.

Once we start your project I’ll send you a rough mix for your approval and do one round of revisions for free if needed, (revisions are small edits) then once you approve the job and release funds, I will send all stems.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap. Let's create something amazing!!!

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    Shelley provided us with the remarkable performance we were looking for. A genuine sense of conviction that permeated the essence of the " vibe " the song needed to have. A consummate professional and a breath if fresh air !!!. Easy to work with. We will certainly be looking to use her again on upcoming projects

    Shelley did a phenomenal job with my latest song! Picking up lyrics from scratch and turning it into something so magical. Shelley is truly a master at her craft as she is able to channel the writers energy so easily.
    One of the best artist here...a true angel on Earth :)

    I look forward to creating more in the future
    Thank you, Shelley!!

    5 stars & 100% recommendation & hopefully many more songs!

    Shelley is so friendly and pragmatic (goal-oriented), she has a lot of customers and yet responds very specifically to my wishes as a new customer.

    That's rare here & on five*r, where I've been working with artists for 30 months.

    I guess I don't need to write about Shelley's singing: listen to her demos and you'll know >> it's 100.1% perfect.

    Shelley H. is a wonderful topliner, and extremely passionate about the artist's goal/vision. She is very kind, honest and professional, and delivers beyond her committed time without sacrificing quality. Loved working with her, and I'd say her experience and expertise really showed in her work. Outstanding!

    Don’t wait! Hire Shelley now!! I had high expectations because her reviews are so good, but she way exceeded every single one.. I don’t have one bad thing to say about her.. it is all positive! My only concern is that she will be too busy to work with me in the future.. she is that good! If you read this far.. what are you waiting for? Seriously. Do it and I promise you will be happy.

    Shelley has again produced a wonderful rendition of a song of mine, in spite of the fact that it was, I thought, not the easiest to perform. She expresses the poetic tone of the melody perfectly, and her mellow and honeyed voice gives the song depth and dimension. Working with her is never a problem because she knows what to do, and does it fast, accurately, and creatively. I highly recommend her as a vocalist. She is impressively talented.

    This platform should introduce a six star rating for artists like Shelley - I have been working with her for years now and she travelled all over the world to perform our work together live on stage. There is not much more you can ask for. I started producing music in my last quarter of my life. I hope all the statics about life expectancy are wrong as I would like to work with her for many years to come. Back live on stage on October 2

Interview with Shelley H

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I really enjoy seeing my song send up in film/tv - it will never stop amazing me that something i've created now can reach the ears of millions through screen. It's a really satisfying moment. Having said that I also absolutely love working on personal songs with clients - Anniversary songs, Valentines, Apology songs... it's so nice to be able to help people with that.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I'm constantly working on songs for film/tv and other artists. My clients keep me busy in a variety of genres and I love my work!

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Yes! In particular some producer/mixers as well as an incredible guitar player and drummer. Please ask me and I will direct you to who will best suit your project.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Analog... I love 'real'... there is an energy that is transferred to another the less a 'moment' is interfered with. I love real vocals, nothing auto-tuned. Something that reached the soul.

  9. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  10. A: Can you make something great! Yes I can :)

  11. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  12. A: I have been in music for many years - I have been signed to Sony, BMG, Chrysalis and Nettwork. I was actually sitting on a subway in NY when someone discovered my music. I've written songs that have been released all over the world on albums and on tv shows and films. I love the connections I have made with people that have become great friends!

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: Real, authentic and emotive, quality...

  15. Q: What's your typical work process?

  16. A: I like to sketch melody ideas while listening out loud on my NS10's and then once I have a basic concept of verse, pre, chorus and bridge I jump in my vocal booth and lay down a melodic vocal guide. After that I begin sketching lyrics. Often i've found that somewhere in the primal melody I laid down the story already resides...

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: I use a Rhode NT2 mic and I like to use CLA wave plugins for playback. I always deliver high quality, organised dry wav files at the end of a session. My studio also has endless Guitars & Amps, Ukulele's and a beautiful Bluthner Upright Grand piano. I work in Logic Audio

  19. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  20. A: The Smiths, Radiohead, Stevie Wonder, GoGo Penguin, Kate Bush, Prince, Billie Holiday, Bjork, Lamb

  21. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  22. A: A quality product, a friendly collaborator with great communication. Easy exchange of ideas and files, no ego, fun creativity.

  23. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  24. A: I live to create, I couldn't breathe without it. I love everything about creating music in all styles and sharing that magic with my collaborator (client).

  25. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  26. A: Just how hard I work... It sounds pretty breezy to be a singer but to stay in this business you have to work hard day in and day out!

  27. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  28. A: Can you send me some references to some released songs in the style you are looking for. Can you send me seperate files - Instrumental, vocal melody line, lyrics etc. Do you have a release plan or can I help you with that.

  29. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  30. A: Listen to my vocal reel to see what I can bring to your project, ask me questions - I can send through further references specific to your project. I will only accept the project if I know I can deliver what you are looking for.

  31. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  32. A: I would take my Laptop, Focusrite, Akai keyboard, Mic and Looper

  33. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  34. A: Don't edit out the breaths! Hearing the singer breathe enables you to feel so close and connected to the track, like you can touch the moment... sometimes raw wins...

  35. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  36. A: Pop, Dance, Ballad's, Electronic. I love it all! Anything from light and uplifting to dark, gritty and edgy.

  37. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  38. A: My vocal sound is unique and i'm told it sits there right alongside some of the best female vocalists out there. Writing melody is one of my favourite parts of the songwriting process. I get many comments about my melodic instinct.

  39. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  40. A: I deliver an authentic, connected and emotive vocal to every session I record. Having written and recorded songs for artists and film/tv for many years - I come up with extra ideas that would benefit the song to reach a wider audience and make your track stand out when it comes to radio.

  41. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  42. A: Clients commission me for vocals and songwriting in all genres. They know that I will provide an authentic, connected performance whether it's a stripped pop love song or a deep dark emotive song for trailer music.

  43. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  44. A: I've had the pleasure of working with incredible artists such as Elvis Costello & John Cale (Velvet Undergound) I have to say it would be pretty great to sing with Portishead and a live Orchestra!
