Shaley Scott on SoundBetter

Sang the featured song in Sony Pictures "Smurfs: The Lost Village" (starring Demi Lovato); Worked with KT Tunstall, Emmy nominated composer Christopher Lennertz, & have had multiple songs placed in Film and Television. Opened for National acts such as Cracker, Joan Osborne, and Bob Marley's The Wailers. See IMDB for full credits.

I am a seasoned performer, songwriter, and session vocalist with over 20 years of experience.
I can sing anything from EDM and Pop...to Rock, Country, & Blues...to Indie/Singer-Songwriter type tracks. The most valuable thing about me is my ability to match any singing style, and adapt my voice accordingly.
I am available for lead vocals, background vocals/harmonies, singing top lines, and writing top lines.

**Please check out the first song on my profile, “Fade Away” in which I wrote the music, lyrics, and melody and provided all vocals. The next track “Style” is also an example of my vocal work and songwriting.
Feel free to also check out the tracks, under "More Samples"....to get a feel for how I can sing in many styles, as well as read my multiple 5 Star reviews below.

*If there is any songwriting involved, I am registered with ASCAP, and we can work out a percentage of writer's for each project. In most cases, I am okay with using my name. I require half of payment up front, and the other half upon delivery.

--All songs were written or co-written by myself, as well as me on vocals. Cheers!

    Shaley is one of the finest singers I've had the chance to work with.
    She is a professional singer, with other talents in the field of music as well.
    It has been a pleasure working with her up until now.
    I look forward having the chance working with her again.

    Shaley is an extremely talented singer. She has a wide vocal range and truly shines in the soprano notes. Also, she has excellent intuition for harmonies and deep musical intelligence. She is very professional, delivered high quality vocals for my production and is clearly a seasoned performing artist. Highly recommended and I definitely plan produce more material for her to sing. If you need beautiful and soulful singing for your production Shaley is a top choice.

    If you ever need a real pro singer with the talent to provide toplines that makes the difference you should hire Shaley. She have the very rare gift of both being able to sing pitch perfect and beautiful and make killer toplines. A true artist.

    Every song I do with Shaley just gets better! this new track called "You Can't Stop The Rain" has a lot of meaning for me...it's almost like Shaley read my mind when she sang this - how does she do that - either she is a fantastic singer and mind reader who can bring what a song needs or I'll eat my hat...yeah well my hat ain't too tasty even with Jalapeno so forget that - this gal is hot! this gal on fire!!! my Song is Lit!!!!! thanks Shaley for bringing a small dream to life!

    OK I give up - is there anything Shaley can not sing?...hmm..I don't think so - just threw a dance track at her and she just bounced it right back in a day!!...and brought tons of creativity to its as well!! I was thinking a line I liked would be really good! (- it was Shaley aced it as usual!) - but the Topline material she brought to the action was better than what I wrote!!! *Top* Topline Shaley - thanks so much...love working with you - you make it seem so easy! so professional !!Brilliant!

    Music I believe, is something Shaley fell in love with at an early age. She has yet to let go.
    I have never met Shaley in person, or any musician I've worked with on SoundBetter.
    I have felt a connection with each person, when I hear their contribution(s) to one of my songs.
    It's fantastic.
    Shaley has an incredible voice.
    With the love I believe Shaley has for music, her voice and other talents in music will only grow and gain greater recognition in years to come.

    Shaley said she could sound like the references I gave her and she didn't let me down. She promised delivery on a certain date and came in eight days early at my request (so I could demonstrate the song at a workshop). When I asked her to change two notes so they matched my original (most singers will use their judgment on certain notes but in this case I liked my choice better), she did this in about fifteen minutes! About thirty minutes after I paid in full, the stems were there for me.

She was very good at giving timely status updates...I never wondered if she was working on my project or when it might be completed. Her unique voice won her the job, even though it was in a genre (hard orchestral rock) that might be considered out of her comfort zone. In the end, the risk was worth taking and we are very happy with the results. Thanks again Shaley!

    Shaley is by far one of the most professional, talented musicians I ever worked with during my time in the music industry. She is serious about her work and performances and is personable, warm, and open to feedback. You will not find a better type of person to work with and her talent is so immense that it sound multiple genres easily. Shaley knows how to flex in an industry that is tough and full of criticism. She is able to push through situations and maintain a calm, receptive demeanor. I fully endorse Shaley Scott, without hesitation.

Interview with Shaley Scott

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

  2. A: I am inspired from so many different artists. I loved Tori Amos, Dolly Parton, Queen, The Rolling Stones, Prince, the list goes on and on. Again, I really enjoy being a part of multiple genres.

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

  4. A: It depends on the project. With singing, I am a very fast learner and can lay down vocals typically very quick. I have always done well with adding extra harmonies to a project, and doubling. As for songwriting, it all varies. I am able to write melodies over existing tracks and chords--as well as add lyrics, if needed. I am flexible, and I enjoy many parts of being a musician.

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: Vocals--I've just been singing for so long.

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

  8. A: I usually work on Pop....but, have recently been getting into Country music.

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

  10. A: I originally only wanted to be a performer...but, now I've gotten into songwriting and publishing, and it's something I think I could have a great future in. I really want to move into song placement and writing for other artists. But, singing will always be my first love.

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

  12. A: I think all I would need is a guitar and a mini keyboard to be happy. Can I bring my Mac? I guess I'll need a generator too....Lol I would at least need to LISTEN to music, as well.

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

  14. A: I would say my forte is how I can make my voice any style...which some singers simply cannot do. It is a great skill to have. I am also very good with writing hooks.

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

  16. A: I am very productive as a session singer, I work fast, and have an ear for harmonies and top lines. I love to sing in different styles...as my voice can adapt to almost any style/genre. I don't like to limit myself to just one type of music. I can also help with, and co-write lyrics and melodies. I am a well-rounded musician, who works hard and takes every job seriously.

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

  18. A: Be as specific as you can when describing the job you want done...give examples, and don't be afraid to ask questions.

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

  20. A: I would ask for examples, as well as their expectations on a time frame. Cost can be negotiable with each project, as well.

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

  22. A: That I only do pop music.

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

  24. A: What's not to like?! Anytime you can get paid to do what you love to do--then you are winning. I love the fact that I can wake up everyday and work on music, because not everyone can do that. It makes me happy.

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

  26. A: Top Quality, creativity, and good communication.

  27. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  28. A: Digital. There just isn't much reason for analog anymore, other than to be cool. There are so many analog plug-ins that get the exact same sound. I do love the analog sound and feel to things, though. But, these days, that can be duplicated.

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

  30. A: I am writing 2 original songs for a Christmas movie, airing on the Ion Channel, this holiday season.

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

  32. A: I would love to co-write/work with Dolly Parton and Justin Timberlake.

  33. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  34. A: I have a sound proof home studio, with a Mac that's running Protools. I am currently using the Blue Baby Bottle SL Microphone - Cardioid. It works very well with my voice, and I've had nothing but compliments using it. I play piano and guitar, which helps in the songwriting process, as well. I record all my own vocals, which let's me have a faster turn around time, rather than relying on someone else to help record.

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

  36. A: My biggest project to date, was working with Sony Pictures. I sang in the animated Smurfs movie, starring Julia Roberts and Demi Lovato, which hit theaters last summer. That was an example of me getting a job, because I was able to make my voice EXACTLY how the producers wanted it. They had tried two artists before me, but those artists weren't able to get the sound Sony wanted, in their voice. My knowledge and experience helped me navigate my voice--to get the performance they wanted.

  37. Q: How would you describe your style?

  38. A: Indie-Pop with a twist of Soul.
