Erin Ezekiel on SoundBetter

Experienced and world-class vocalist, topliner, and producer. Stong, soulful, top quality vocals. I have worked with Grammy Award winning producers & pro musicians from all around the world. I work in all genres and I pay close attention to detail so I can deliver the best result for you.

My basic vocal tracking package includes a comp'd top line vocal stem, 1 to 2 harmony tracks (left and right takes of each).
Lyrics, top line melody, ad libs and/or extra background vocal tracking such as choir arrangements can be added at an additional cost.
Top line melody composition is a passion of mine, and I have many years experience writing lyrics to fit any context or style.
I studied musical theatre at The Boston Conservatory, Indian classical vocals with the late Maestro Ali Akbar Khan, and Traditional Spiritual Music with Bill "The Jazz Professor" Bell in the Oakland Bay Area Community Chorus.
My primary goal is to help others realize their musical masterpieces.

    Erin was fantastic throughout the entire project. Very quick to respond and very patient with my requests.

    Erin's vocal sound is first class and so is her understanding of song composition.

Interview with Erin Ezekiel

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

  2. A: I had the honor of writing/recording the theme song for a short film written/directed by my younger brother called "Staten Island Truffle Hunter" starring Chris Distefano. Such a fun project, especially because it was working with family.

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

  4. A: Always working on original songs and live performances in Spain with my amazing drummer husband. I am also rehearsing for a musical theatre/opera performance with a full orchestra in Vera, Spain.

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

  6. A: I am only happy if you are happy.

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

  8. A: Helping others realize their musical masterpieces.

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

  10. A: That every vocal take is perfect and sung all the way through. Sometimes the concept of punch-ins, re-takes, and comping of vocal tracks can be unknown to the client, and that's okay, it's my job to make it sound so easy. :)

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

  12. A: I grew up performing locally in community theatre before attending The Boston Conservatory for a year, as well as San Francisco State University. Through that time period I was only singing music theatre, jazz standards, and a bit of opera. It wasn't until I met my husband that I began writing and recording original music. Since then, we have done 5 tours across the US, and later traveled overseas where we currently reside.

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: Very soulful with a classically trained sound.

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

  16. A: Sia would be my first choice as a songwriting partner because she has such a genuine real vibe to all her music, like it's effortless for her to write a good hook. Jennifer Lopez for a duet, because I feel like we'd be friends, and our voices would compliment each other nicely.

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

  18. A: I like to use different mics for lead and background vocals. I also will sometimes use different mic placements, or stand further off the mic when tracking doubles. It can add a nice character to the stack. I also double all my harmony tracks for natural left/right pan.

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

  20. A: Songs in the bluesy pop genre seem to be most frequent. I also do a lot of electronic pop projects.

  21. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  22. A: Topline melody composition is a passion of mine.

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

  24. A: I bring my unique style and vocal training in many genres such as soul, pop, blues, jazz, musical theatre, etc. I also have 4 years study of Indian Classical vocals from the late Maestro Ali Akbar Khan.

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

  26. A: I typically do the demo part of the process free of charge, with flat rates for lyric and vocal melody composition. For projects with pre-written lyrics and vocal guide provided in advance, I will often do a rough demo on my laptop as it helps me to familiarize myself with the song structure, and allows me to work out ideas for harmony/background vox.

  27. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  28. A: I have a highly efficient (albeit small) home studio set up in the countryside. I use Ableton Live 10 Suite for all recordings. I also play keys, and my husband is a professional drummer and sound engineer, so the house is always filled with music.

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

  30. A: For me, personally, Bjork has always had the most genuine production and songwriting methods, in addition to strong performance and musicality.

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

  32. A: Pro quality vocal tracking. Lyric composition. Top line melody composition.

  • I Can Sing Opera!Apr 20, 2023

    I've been asked to sing the soprano role in the duet, "Time To Say Goodbye", with "Enrique: The Tenor of Vera" and the Vera Orchestra in Vera, Spain this June. I haven't performed this kind of material for some time, and I am absolutely thrilled.
