No job is too small! I love a challenge to help make your project stand out.

Due to my own personal work load as a songwriter in music libraries, I will no longer write lyrics / melody for Soundbetter clients.

Please provide lyrics and a ghost track (I don't care how bad you sing it) and I can get the job done very quick for you at my standard rate of $200 per track.

    Another fantastic job by Jodah in the can! Quick turn around and plenty of killer material to work with : )

  4. Review by Phillip T.

    Jodah delivered exceptional vocals that added the right emotion to the track. He also was fast in getting it done. I would highly recommend working with him if you need great vocals quick. Treason baby! Can't wait to mix and master this chompy and drop it!

  5. Review by Martijn W.

    Joe did a terrific job on 5 songs. He works fast, very easy to communicate with, delivers more than i usually asked for, provides improvements on the vocals even with the smallest changes and i ended up with exactly was i was looking for and even exceeded my expectations. Pleasure working with Joe, throughout the whole project i had a reassuring sense of knowing that he will deliver quality.

  6. Review by Martijn W.

    I needed a "clean" voice on a song, and after providing me with some very powerful stems, Joe's versatility with his voice not only gave me exactly what i asked for, but even with harmony backing vocals.

  7. Review by Martijn W.

    Again great experience. Fast, accurate, and it's like Joe exactly knows what i had in mind when writing these songs. His vocals really improve the quality of the song.

  8. Review by Martijn W.

    Second time i worked with Joe, and everything went very smooth, very fast. Joe provided some suggestions and very creative solutions (thanks for that btw). Final product exceeded my expectations. Five stars for sure!

  9. Review by Randy R.

    Another great experience working with Jodah! Powerful vocals executed exactly as I had envisioned.

  10. Review by Martijn W.

    Besides being a really easy-going person, Joe has a unique and very strong, raw powervoice. On soundbetter you can find a ton of great rock singers, but they all tend to sound too clean for my taste. I'm sure Joe is perfectly capable to provide those kind of vocals also but it's his versatility that makes him stand out in the crowd. Will definitely work with him on future projects.

  11. Review by Randy R.

    Jodah nailed exactly what I was going for and then some. I had the finished monster vocal tracks in my mitts and ready for the mixing bowl before I could say Holy Cannoli! : ) Definitely going to use Jodah on more songs in 2020!

  12. Review by Harold G.
