Silke on SoundBetter

I am a pro British session singer, songwriter & engineer and I have been specializing in online sessions since 2005. My tone is very versatile yet unique: if you're looking for a singer who will listen to you and bring your vision to life but always add emotion, personality, urgency, top-notch audio quality and dedication... look no further.

I work from my own recording studio (NOT a home studio) and having recorded for many sync pitches with super-tight deadlines, I have developed a very fast turnaround (max 48 hours) always guaranteeing quality and care.
My studio is equipped with high end preamps, compressors and mics (Chandler, Neve, API, UA, Neumann, Flea) and it has a beautifully sounding live room.
I have engineered my own sessions for years and I take extra care in choosing the right mic-pre combination for each track, whether I am looking for a sparkly pop sound, a smooth and intimate acoustic vibe or a warm, hot rock tone.
I am a trained musician with great ear and a songwriter, and I will always be happy to provide vocal arrangements and top lines on request.

My voice has appeared on tracks featuring amazing musicians such as Dominic Miller (Sting) Andy Treacey (Faithless) and Paul Winter-Hart (Kula Shaker) , producers like Matt Butler (Paul McCartney) and Tommaso Colliva (Muse) and labels like Universal Music and Almighty Records. I have worked extensively on music for media (movies, TV series, adverts) for brands like Fox, Showtime Networks, MTV, Breil, Miller, Lotos, Gabriele Muccino, Channel 4, New Look, Ferrero, Applebees and more.

    Great session singer. She performs exactly as requested and contributes ideas of her own as well. Reasonably priced and very quick turnaround. So far have used her vocal on 4 of my tracks; am sure we'll be doing more. 10/10!

    Beyond awesome. Fast, reliable and communicative but above all, a fantastic vocalist who can sound like anyone you wish. If you are ever pondering between options, don't. Just go with her.

    Silke has provided fantastic vocals on many tracks for us over the years in the Hi-NRG / electronic genre, with consistently fast turnaround, great harmonies and great production every time. She's always very friendly, professional and just great to work with - we would definitely recommend her!

    I used the lovely vocals of Silke on several of my song demos. One of the songs she sang did well in the UK Songwriting Contest. As a songwriter, I highly recommend Silke for quality vocals on your songs.

    Silke has provided vocals on many of my Electronic Dance / Pop songs. Some of which have been released in Europe. Others have been used for Demo's to publishing companies. She always has a fast turnaround, and always provides a great quality vocal.

    Silke has provided vocals and harmonies on a number of our songs over the last few years and I cannot recommend her services enough. She is a fabulous talent and very professional as well as friendly, helpful and inventive in her interpretation and delivery of the vocals. Great sounding recordings and fast turnaround I would not hesitate to use her services again in the future.

    Silke sang on a number of dance tracks for me, most of the songs made it to compilations that reached sales charts in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. It's always fun and uncomplicated to work with her since her brilliant voice and enthusiasm always adds that extra spark to the production that makes the difference. Looking forward to many more vocal performances by Silke!

    Silke is a super pro singer with an amazing talent, producing amazing vocal tracks that perfectly match the brief. Fast delivery, pro sound quality, clean tracks and a big plus: she know how to add something unique, and personal if needed. I've worked with her also for lyrics, she can write lyrics sticked with the melody with a surprising sense of storytelling and universal feeling. Perfect from retro to modern, from alternative to pop but i found she's absolutely stunning on intimate stuff.

    I have used Silke to sing on 3 albums and her ability to breathe life into a song is phenomenal, as is her contribution in terms of ideas and nuance. She is my go-to voice, great turnaround speed wise and easy to deal with. Very highly recommended!

    Silke recorded complex harmonies & lead lines for my Steel Skin Soul project. Powerful, emotive, dramatic, pitch perfect, soulful - everything I could have asked for. Inately musical she immediately grasped the project, got “inside” the songs & performed the parts with real feeling, energy, character & expression. Really exceptional vocal range too. So great to be able to record the parts “remotely” at her own studio - this saved so much time. Amazingly fast turnaround & no revisions needed as each take was perfect. Super-professional attitude & communications. Really a pleasure 🖤

    Quite simply a wonderful singer! I have worked with her now for several years and always find the vocals to be beautifully sung, well recorded and inventive. Always goes the extra mile to make the song work exactly the way you want it to. Highly recommended.
