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 $200, 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, Manley Cardioid Reference Mic, Vintech x73 preamp and Distressor. I will send you back raw vocals all consolidated to bar 1 beat 1 that lines up easily to your tracks. My studio is treated with GIK acoustic panels so there's no weird room noise or reflections.

    What started out as a single song working with Matt evolved into an EP and is now closing in on an album-length project...and this is 100% because of Matt's PHENOMENAL vocal performances. Rich, warm, beautiful, passionate - his vocal has elevated and brought home every track I have sent him. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Matt has an INCREDIBLE voice that will elevate your songs to a truly professional level. I have heard the comment "that sounds like it should be on the radio" over and over from folks who have heard my songs with Matt performing the vocals. Matt has now sung on 5 of my tunes, and I have been thrilled with every one of them. You will be too - HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    I cannot recommend Matt highly enough! His vocal work on the first song I sent him was truly outstanding and brought the song so vibrantly to life that it inspired me to do additional tunes with him. Matt has a fantastic range, and has now delivered professional-level performances on both country and rock tunes. Hire Matt - you will love the result!

    Matt was awesome! Super easy to work with and very responsive. His vocals were perfect for my track and he even went out of his way to add extra harmonies and extra background vocals that weren't there in the first place that ended up sounding great. I would 10/10 recommend! Thanks Matt!

    GREAT job by Matt interpreting my song. What he provided was great sounding, professional and even changed my perspective a little on how the vocals could be effectively sung. Matt was communicative, highly cooperative and finished the tune on time. Will definitely seek him out again for new music!

    Matt's performance on my song *literally* gave me goosebumps. You hear his SB samples, and you imagine what he might sound like singing your tune, but then you hear what it *actually* sounds like and...like I said, goosebumps. His work is so beautiful and professional - I love the way he took my melody and added nuances in just the right places, elevating the song to meet its absolute highest potential. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Matt is a true professional. The writer/vocalist dance is the most delicate of all sessions. Matt is 100% supportive, patient, and willing to do the work with an awesome attitude. Oh...and he delivers 10/10!! This is the third time I've hired Matt, though the first over Soundbetter. It's a little tricky sometimes all online like this, Matt is game for it all. Hit him up!

    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,,
