Freelance (backing)vocalist on SoundBetter

I'm Ellis, a graduate from ArtEZ Popacademy Conservatory, specialized in songwriting, arranging and singing backing vocals. Aside from being a backingvocalist and songwriter/toplinewriter, I am also a lyric and singing coach, vocal producer and overall creative mind. I love working for and with other people, to collectively create a great song!

I am very familiar in a music studio and I can use a DAW and edit music fairly easily. I am able to make my own demos and vocal productions in my own tiny home studio. I use Logic Pro X.

My voice is easily blendeable, which creates a smooth and full backingvocal sound, but I can also create more choir-like sounds. I can sing from sheet music as well. My range is wide (3 octaves) and it can be soft and breathy, but also twangy or loud, with or without effects. I've sang different kinds of music, like a capella, funk, jazz, soul, alternative, rock, pop, country, folk, gospel, etc, etc.

My own music would be described as a mix of countrypop and soulpop, but I am easily adapted in different genres, as I studied a wide range of music in my 4 years at music school. My voice and songwriting skills are very flexible because of that. My taste in music varies, from jazz to Disney, from synthpop to countryrock.

    Ellis is amazing! If Soundbetter would be a matchmaking agency, Ellis would be the one you'd want to marry!

    She wrote great lyrics to our song and sung in a beautiful and professional manner! She is very kind and patient. It's always great working with her and every song feels special, due to her unmistakable voice and quality!

    This was my second time working with Ellis, and she did another amazing job. Both times her turnaround was quick, her attitude was great, the price was very reasonable, and most importantly it sounded great. I would definitely hire her again when I need vocals. Thank you!

    Ellis did a great job for me on this project. I needed backing vocals for a few songs, and she delivered all of the tracks that I asked for in a very timely manner, was very pleasant to deal with, and most importantly the tracks sounded great. She also sent over some additional harmony ideas that I hadn't asked for just in case I wanted to use them, which I thought was a very nice touch. Overall, I was very please with how the tracks sounded, and with how everything worked out. Thank you!

    Ellis was super fast recording and sending the tracks! She followed my instructions precisely and the communication was fast and to the point. Love it when a singer is able to read music. Excellent lead and the choir turned out really special.

    Ellis is Great! She can sing in multiple genres. From pop, rock, ballads, hard rock and alt rock. She sang on 15 songs for me and they are all awesome!! Huge range. 4 octaves maybe 5. Really special! I've worked with many artists who have toured the world and have been signed to major labels. Ellis is right in there with them.
