UMPG signed topliner, vocalist and songwriter. Have extensive experience in the studio with grammy award winners and platinum selling recording artists. My songs have been streamed over a billion times, charted top 40 on billboard charts and released by platinum selling artists like the Chainsmokers. Would love to help bring your vision to life.
Demo vocals, topline and songwriting. I specialize in pop music, but am comfortable in r&b and urban leaning spaces as well. I've been a professional in music for 12 years. I started as a solo artist in Canada and toured with Sarah Mclachlan, Sheryl Crow, Erykah Badu and Warped Tour, had a #1 on much music, and numerous songs that charted on Canadian radio. About three years ago I transitioned into focusing on songwriting and have had an incredible experience working with some of the best producers and artists in the world, my credits include, The Chainsmokers, Illenium, Blackbear, Kiiara, DVBBS, Gryffin, Petite Biscuit, R3hab. I can topline and record vocals on existing tracks, help with melodies or lyrics on demo's or record vocals to existing songs.
Generally when I'm working to track I send back an initial "scratch vocal" of melodies and lyrics within a week, we do any edits or changes you have and then I send back a final vocal with background vocals within 3-4 days. My rates are $1000 for full topeline and vocal/back ground vocal. Vocal available for release but I am not available for credited features at this time. One round of edits. $100 per additional round.

Interview with Kate Morgan
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I love the Chainsmokers song I was apart of "Hope". I wrote it with two good friends and it was a super real and personal song for us. I'm proud of those lyrics for being so raw, and Winona sang it so beautifully! it's been incredible to see it being played all over the world!

From there I love to see this vast connection of emotion through music. I feel immensely grateful knowing how many people have taken comfort in the words and melodies I wrote in challenging times.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: They usually ask me about my process and I'm always open and communicative with them. If I receive questions about edits or I do my best to understand how the part could be improved, through asking for more references or providing examples and make changes accordingly.

A: That the process is the same everyday, sometimes it takes an hour, sometimes 12!

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been working in music for 12 years, I started as an artist and had some early success in my home territory of Canada. I was lucky enough to tour with artists like Sheryl Crow and Erykah Badu and live my teenage dream by going on Warped Tour. Things didn't work out with my team at the time and I decided to try and re-establish myself as a songwriter and moved to Los Angeles. Things haven't always been easy, but I have somehow managed to survive this long through relentless hard work and community and I'm really proud to say I received my first platinum and gold records this year with DVBBS/blackbear and The Chainsmokers and my first radio number 1 in Germany with Lena and Nico Santo's.

A: I'm passionate about every song I'm part of. I've been writing songs as a professional for almost a decade and I believe my experience is evident in my work.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Once I'm sent a track I usually spend a day or two listening and collecting melody ideas. Then I go through them, pick the strongest ones and begin to piece together a concept and lyric. Once that's done I record a scratch vocal to send to the client and address any changes or edits they have then go back and record a lead vocal and background vocals.

A: I record on a shure sm7b, through logic.

Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Toplining (melody and lyrics) and vocals (lead and backgrounds). I usually work by being sent an existing track and working with the producer to create a complete song with a vocal that is ready for release.
