I specialise in singing (pop + r&b) and vocal editing (tuning, timing & comping).
Hi there, I'm Laura, a professional Singer & Vocal Producer, that wants to help you create a song you'll be proud of for the rest of your life!
I have a unique voice, that can make your song stand out. I specialise in the genres of Pop & RnB and have a four octave range, but shine the most singing soprano. My influences go from Ariana Grande to Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey and many others.
As a singer and vocal producer, I approach editing from a very musical perspective. To improve performances remarkably, without compromising feel or authenticity of the original vocal, is my great passion.
Vocal Production is so important in making a track amazing and I offer a beneficial, valuable and time-saving service to artists, engineers and producers, that can bring even the most difficult stems to industry standard.
In regards to my education and experience: I have studied singing, guitar, composition and songwriting with Berklee College of Music and London Centre of Contemporary Music. I am a recording artist, that deeply loves writing and producing records and I understand the importance of creating something you really really love.
Perfectionism is very important to me. So if you need Vocals or Vocal Production done, click the green button above to contact me:)
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Interview with Laura Vaccaro
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I comp and tune vocals (lead + backing) to make a vocal performance as strong as it can be. I also fix timing issues. In regards to singing: I sing lead parts, as well as backing vocals over tracks in the genres of pop, r&b and indie pop. If clients need help with vocal melodies, I write them as well.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am inspired by singers and artists like Ariana Grande, Whitney Houston, Ella Mai, Frank Ocean, Beyoncé and many more. In regards to music production professionals: I am a huge fan of projects CLA, Toni Maserati, Pharrell Williams and Andrew Scheps worked on.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I own a professional home studio with my husband, that is equipped with acoustic treatment by Hofa. We've got a UAD1176LN Limiting Amplifier, an API 512V pre amp & SSL 611EQ, hundreds of plug-ins from companies like Waves,Soundtoys,FabFilter etc. I own Melodyne, a Neumann U87, as well as other well known microphones, an RME Fireface 802 interface, Neumann KH 310 speakers and an I-Mac 3.3 GHz Intel Core i7...These are the highlights:)
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Vocal Production: I start comping the vocals (depending on, if a client wants me to do lead and backing, i start with the lead). I choose the best takes and glue them together into one audio file. Then I start tuning them. If a singer struggled with pitch, i fix that first. In case there are no pitch issues, I start strengthening the overall vocals, in order to make it sound like a vocal you hear on commercial records. The last thing I do is fix timing issues (in case there are any). Singing: I learn the melody and lyrics and then ask my clients, how they want it to sound (if there is a specific vocal approach they would want me to do). Then I go record it, send it off to them and get feedback. If there are things which clients want me to sing different, i re-record it and send it off again, until they are very happy with the outcome.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Vocals are the most important part of a song. I make them beautiful, whether it is by producing them or singing them. An ok vocal can wreck a great song. A fantastic vocal can make a great song outstanding.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, R&B and Indie Pop
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Keep learning and stay up to date with new techniques and sounds used! Never be stagnant.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Ella Mai. I´d love to produce her beats, as well as sing backing on her tracks and produce her vocals:)
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I received my education from Berklee College of Music and LCCM in London. I actually studied mostly acoustic and electric guitar, but also took classes in Singing, Songwriting and Composition. In 2017, my last year of uni, I started producing my own records with my husband and picked up skills like Vocal Production, Arranging, Beat Making, Synth making, etc. Since then, I work full-time on making records.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: In regards to singing: I ask, what their influences are, what music they currently love and how they ultimately want me to deliver their vocals.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: It´s such a privilege to make vocals on a record sound amazing.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to take your project seriously and give my absolute best to help your track be the best it can possibly be. I am a hard working person, that aims for perfection.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: In both Vocal Production and Singing, I am a perfectionist, that delivers clients vocals, which are fantastic.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is a mixture between alternative pop, r&b and jazz music. I'm a very unique singer and artist though. I get inspired by things I look up to and I keep learning new things every day, but ultimately, I think you won't find a lot of people, who sing like or make records like me lol.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don't underestimate vocal production. So many people sing really well; have great tone and fantastic pitch. I think I am one of them. The sad truth is, that amazing pitch alone will never make you sound like a great singer on a commercial record. Even if no-one says it, everybody gets tuned. Vocal production makes or breaks a record! It is absolutely invaluable.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Analog has got such a warm sound and depending on the recording (if you were in a great recording studio or if you recorded in bad conditions), analog can save your butt and can take shrillness away, instead of adding more to it.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am proud of my own track `Feel Lost`, for which I did almost everything myself. From songwriting, to singing the lead and backing, to guitar playing, to beat making, to synth designing, to vocal production and producing the record. I co-recorded, mixed and mastered it, but the rest was all me.
