Hello. I'm Nicki. Songwriters, studio engineers and clients have entrusted their music to me for over a decade; from pop to salsa, rock to R&B, commercial jingles to jazz. I accomplish in hours what can take other singers an entire studio day.

I am a truly versatile singer - not a "copycat". My recording and performance career spans more than a decade and several genres - from Classical Chorale to Musical Theater, Pop, Rock, The American Jazz Songbook, Brazilian and Latin Jazz. I have recorded in English, Spanish & Portuguese. My complete immersion into these influences and the feel for their respective nuances are what I believe set me apart from other singers. This voice must match the soul of the melody and lyrics; and the quality of the production.

I read music if you have lead sheets for me. Otherwise, I've got "horn player ears", so I harmonize easily. I have an affinity for stacking harmonies, creating background parts and counterpoint melodies. I have my own studio and can render you finished work in 48 hours in most cases.

Reviews of Nicki Gonzalez

    I won't state the obvious: that this vocalist has pipes, mad skills! The main thing is not that she's a professional, which she is-- or even that her turn around is lightning fast, it's more her versatility and ability to take direction, to "hear" and collaborate. Nicki is a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!

    Nicki is the cat's meow. I'm a very persnickety producer, I'll admit, with extremely specific and challenging requests that many singers can't seem to get. Nicki gets it. She delivers goes the extra mile to ensure I always have what I want and need.

    Nicki nailed the essence of what I was looking for in a lead vocal. I found her intonation and delivery to be excellent. She worked fast and had the needed files to me very quickly and the quality of her recording was also high. Let's do it again!!

    Nicki is one of the most professional and best singers I've ever had the pleasure to work with. She just "gets it." I'm extremely picky and demanding, doing commercial work for advertisers. Nicki delivers. Her rhythm is perfection. Her interpretation, spot on. It's the start of a long relationship.

  • Default-avatar11 months agoby Verified Review

    Nicki is an exceptional talent!! I could not be happier with the incredible vocals she delivered. Nicki is wonderful to work with, she has a super fast turnaround time and is in constant communication. I hope to have the opportunity to work with Nicki again!

    I can only confirm what has been said about Nicki. And this job was an odd-ball which she pulled off in short time with no hassle/struggle. The Screaming passages are rocky as heck... For everyone out there that is looking for real talent -> Nicki Gonzalez t

Interview with Nicki Gonzalez

What's your strongest skill?
My strongest skill is that I'm not just a singer - I'm a well-rounded, learned musician. I read and write music, I hear harmonies naturally, I play piano, guitar and percussion. This gives me the vocabulary to communicate efficiently with instrumentalists and producers and promptly apply their/your directives.
What do you bring to a song?
I bring to each song a unique understanding of how listeners hear music: from the top down. People hear a voice first and are inclined to receive the lyrical message. As a singer/songwriter, I emote into your lyrics so your story is not only understood but felt. But my favorite part is arranging impactful background vocals that give impact, framing the phrases that matter most.
What's your typical work process?
First I will make sure that the song is in a singable key. It is not uncommon for male songwriters to place the song too high or too low for the female voice. When this is the case, I will record a quick demo of me singing in the "impossible" key and then I will make a suggestion for a new key and record a quick demo of that, too. Once we decide on key placement, I will learn you melody exactly as you present it to me, then I will also cut a track with some of my own melodic ideas. You can use the parts you like or none at all. Next, I stack vocal harmonies around the melody as directed. If I feel strongly that a particular lyric must stand out or that harmonies would sound good in another place, I will record this part for your review, too. Again, you can use my idea or scrap it.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I record on Pro-Tools through a Behringer interface with a CAD studio microphone.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Pop songwriters inspire me most. I think it takes tremendous skill to write something simple, memorable, with a clear message and mass appeal.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
The majority of my work is singing a lead vocal and adding stacked harmonies. I also create vocal arrangements and counterpoint melodies that compliment the lead. I will also write fun, relatable lyrics for pop, EDM and R&B tracks when requested.
