    Shelley is incredibly talented and versatile. Amazing to work with, taking direction well and contributing creative input, with efficiency. Bubbly personality and an absolute pleasure to have in the studio.

    I worked with Shelley on my first album and my most recent album. She wrote melody and lyrics to my music. Both times, it was an amazing experience to see how intuitive and creative she is. Shelley is very personable, provide quick turnaround and really just nails the writing and vocal aspects like a pro. I would recommend her to any producer who wants incredible vocal work and solid writing skills.

    I've known Shelley since 2011 and have to say she's an absolutely awesome vocal talent and top liner. Also one of the nicest people and easiest to work with you'll ever care to meet. Super professional, creative and lovey. Look no further! Highly recommended.

    I have had the pleasure to work with Shelley over a number of years and can say without a doubt that she is one of the most talented and professional people I have ever collaborated with.
    She is first and foremost a wonderful singer and writer but also an excellent communicator and fast worker.
    This platform is an excellent opportunity to work with Shelley - a rare and genuine talent!

    Shelley is a top writer, vocalist and producer who's music stands head to head with some of my favorite artists (think rachel goswell, kate bush, beth orton...). Shelley writes lyrics with emotion and depth, her incredible voice can range from delicate to dynamic and her production/engineering skills should instill every bit of confidence that you are working with a serious pro. Shelley is down to earth and has an easy-going, positive vibe in the studio, making for a productive experience. We worked together on a few of her own songs/productions and we'll be doing it again very soon!

    I met Shelley about 7 years ago while in Australia and have continued to collaborate with her from New York ever since. She is an amazing talent. Great songwriter. And absolutely magical voice.

Interview with Shelley Harland

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

  2. A: I'm very proud of my own artist album release on Sony - an album called Red Leaf which you can find on spotify and itunes. It's a body of work that enabled me to go on great tours and lots of tv appearances. It was a fun time.

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

  4. A: I'm working on 8 songs for Universal UK Sync, 2 songs for a producer in NY and 1 for a producer in LA. I'm also currently working on my new album.

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

  6. A: I don't know anyone yet - i'm excited to get to know new people

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Oh gosh i'd go with analog because I love the sound of vinyl but... for work it's digital

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

  10. A: A quality product, a friendly collaborator, easy exchange of ideas and files, no ego, fun professional connections

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

  12. A: I live to create, I couldn't breathe without it - i've never had another job so this is what I do :)

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

  14. A: How fast can you get the track back to us - answer: 1-2 days

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

  16. 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 and have lots of fingers in lot of pies :)

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

  18. A: What software do you use? How fast do you want the vocal stems. What are you intending to do with the track. What connections do you have in the music industry.

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

  20. A: Listen to the vocal reel to see what the artist can bring to your project, look around online to see what content they have and the level of professionalism.

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

  22. A: I would take my Laptop, Apogee duet, Oxygen keyboard, Mic and MPC Live

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

  24. A: I have been in music for 20 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!

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

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

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

  32. A: Dance, Pop, Electronic, Jazz and more...

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: Melody is my favourite part of the songwriting process. I enjoy it all but comments about my melodic instinct leads me to think it's my strong point.

  36. A: I bring an authentic, emotive vocal... or so i'm told!

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

  38. A: I work mainly in logic. If someone sends me a track to write to I usually come up with melodic idea first and then start to craft the lyrics. All vocal stems are professionally delivered in a timely manner :)
