Matt Dame on SoundBetter

15+ years of professional session work in Nashville. Demos, Masters, Lead vocals, BGVS, tv/film, radio. 1000's of sessions in all studios with all the publishers and producers. Pro gear at home studio for timely, master level vocals in a week of less. Cuts from my vocals on major artists and used in film/tv/radio. In tune and true to melody

Soulful, Southern, Clean or Gritty...but the best part is believability. One of Nashville's most recorded vocalists over the last 15 years. For $175 I will cover all vocals for your song. All harmonies included!! All recorded at my home studio through UAD Apollo Quad, Apple computer, Studio One 4 Professional, Korby "Red" Tube mic or the Slate VMS mic system. I can send raw wav files back to you, or I can print mic emulation and effects if you wish. I give 2 rounds of revisions.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    Couldn't be happier, blew the dust off a song written 25 years ago, Matt took the time to find out what I wanted and he nailed it, gave a little hope to my dream of being a songwriter,, will raise a few funds and will be back to try another. Hard to believe I'm west coast Canada and Matts Nashville and we were able to accomplish this in a few days,,
    Thanks

    Great! Just great! I have always used the same company for my demos and they have always been good but I was looking to try something different. Matt had great communication, input and asked questions to make sure he knew what I wanted and boy did he deliver! It is clear Matt is a seasoned pro! I will indeed work with him again and you should too. This song could go on the radio today! Matt is a super star!
