    Michael delivers exactly what you ask for. He sung some extra ad-libs as part of an earlier song and gave us so much to choose from. He hit some high notes that I didn't know existed! A complete pro!

    Michael is a powerhouse vocalist! While his demo shows a lot of great Metal singing, he’s also a fantastic pop vocalist as well. He can dial in as much grit and rasp as needed. His voice brought a commanding power and urgency to our song. He takes direction well and improves upon it. He also delivered amazing backing vocals and ad-libs. Michael is an extremely nice guy and a pleasure to work with!

    After working with Michael for a couple of songs and finding his amazing vocal range, I repeated the experience with equally positive results in 3 more songs; his lead sections are powerful and his chorus and harmonies sound like an entire army!
    I definitely look forward to repeating the experience!!

Interview with Michael Gildner

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: I'm working on my first singer/songwriter publication.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Hannah Montana said it best: "It's the best of both worlds!"

  5. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  6. A: -How many vocal tracks do you want(lead, backings, ad-libs)? -Do I also topline for your project? -Can you provide a guide track with vocals and one without vocals in sync to the tempo of the song? -Do you have preferred method in data-delivery?

  7. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  8. A: Be vocal. Tell me from the get-go what you want. Communication is the most important thing I will gladly answer you in great detail =)

  9. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  10. A: I'm doing this for over 14 years now and started 2014 to work professional for studios and producers.

  11. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  12. A: Myles Kennedy. Always dream big!

  13. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  14. A: Always and I mean ALWAYS(!) ask questions! Just like in dating, if you ask questions you get to know your client better and you can identify their needs very quickly and precisely. If you can show a client that you fully understood what their vision is, you make a connection that can last well after the current project you work on.

  15. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  16. A: I work primarily on ROCK, POP, METAL, and ELECTRONIC music.

  17. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  18. A: I bring my experience of over 14 years of singing and working with various musicians. Creativity is what makes a song great and I do give my clients everything I have to offer all the time.

  19. Q: What's your typical work process?

  20. A: I record multiple vocal tracks including doubles, backings and ad-libs. Afterwards I edit everything, clean up all tracks and deliver everything through an archive-file.

  21. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  22. A: Santo Clemenzi. I provided lead vocals for his project OUTERBURST. He writes everything and does a great job producing. He is amazing!

  23. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  24. A: The creativity and challenges that come with it. I love working on different kinds of songs, because every songwriter works different and if I can add my creative input to that it is the most amazing feeling!

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: From pretty rough, smokey rock, over high soaring metal, to soft and investing pop vocals. Manly heavy but I am versatile with my range.

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: Besides my singing it is the communication with the client. I'm always there in case of need and can react fast to said needs. I also give my creative input when ever I have an idea and give the clients that extra work without them paying a dime more.

  29. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  30. A: Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge is a big inspiration for me. A great singer and musician overall. In producing it's Chris Lord-Alge and Dave Pensado. Two incredible creative professionals.

  31. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  32. A: I do vocals in different varieties: lead vocals, backings, ad-libs, spoken word.
