How's it going?
My name is Michael Gildner. 29 years old, singer and voice actor from Stuttgart, Germany.
I'm singing since 2005(Pop, Rock and Metal) and do voice acting since 2013.
I released 2 full-length albums with the rock band HARD RIOT, I'm the lead vocalist for the Italian project OUTERBURST and did guest vocals for several other bands.

My specialties are Rock, Pop and Metal, but I'm open for other genres ;)

I will provide dry WAV files for you, recorded, edited and cleaned up.

    Micheal is a pro with a voice with great range! Great clean, expressive vocals delivered on time! A real pleasure to work with!

  • Verified ReviewListing_thumb_listen_to_eyes__co_listen_eyes_artwork23 days agoby

    Totally shake up the brief from previous tracks & Michael simply adapts with you to give you what you are after.

    Highly recommended. You can book this vocalist in full confidence. We just did heavy-rock-multi-layered-harmonies, really tidily edited wav's as always, so easy to mix, pro session vocalist.

    Got exactly what I was looking for. Ace!

    what a wonderful job by Michael. A truly gifted vocalist with an ability to make a song come to life

  • Verified ReviewListing_thumb_listen_to_eyes__co_listen_eyes_artwork4 months agoby

    A talented rock/metal studio vocalist who's voice works especially well with distorted guitar riffs, great @ multilayers and harmonies too. Very helpful with my odd revision request although revisions are v rarely required! (When they are it's usually just to try something extra rather than correct anything)
    Thanks for cool nu layers for my music!

    Fantastic experience, top PRO. I had to try Michael out on my music... his rock/metal demo reel with album material by the band Hard Riot (iTunes) blew me away!

    I liked the way this artist listened to my brief and crafted the vocal delivery with immense skill and precision first time & gave me options! I love his approach to session vocal work.

Interview with Michael Gildner - The Voice

Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Santo Clemenzi. I provided lead vocals for his project OUTERBURST. He writes everything and does a great job producing. He is amazing!
Analog or digital and why?
Hannah Montana said it best: "It's the best of both worlds!" ;)
What do you like most about your job?
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!
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
-How many vocal tracks do you want(lead, backings, ad-libs)? -Do I need to write 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?
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
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 =)
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I'm doing this for over 10 years now and started last year to work professional for studios and producers.
How would you describe your style?
From pretty rough, smokey rock, over high soaring metal, to soft and investing pop vocals. Manly heavy but I am versatile with my range.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Myles Kennedy. Always dream big! ^_^
Can you share one music production tip?
Of course =) 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 precicly. If you can show a client that you fully understood what their vision is, you make a conection that can last well after the current project you work on.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I work primarily on ROCK, POP, METAL and ELECTRONIC music. But I'm always up to a new genre-challenge ;)
What's your strongest skill?
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.
What do you bring to a song?
I bring my experience in over 10 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.
What's your typical work process?
I record multiple vocal tracks including doubles, backings and ad-libs. Afterwards I edit everything, clean up all tracks and deliver everything through a password protected archive-file via wetransfer.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
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.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I do vocals in different varieties: lead vocals, backings, ad-libs, spoken word.
