Great to work with, quick response to any messages and very happy with the results.
Outstanding work on short notice!! A pleasure to work with Christina!!!
Christina has an awesome voice, and did a great job on my gig. Highly recommended.
Christina has worked with me on multiple occasions, on a number of projects. She is an absolute delight to work with, professional, punctual and is always happy to make sure the final product is fantastic quality. Christina has a unique, powerful and versatile voice making her the perfect choice for any project or genre.
I've been fortunate to have Christina assist me on some of my original music. In addition to being a phenomenal vocalist, she is an absolute pleasure to work with and very professional. She is very passionate about what she does and I couldn't recommend her enough!
Working with Christina was an awesome experience. She was very professional throughout the entire process and it was clear that she cared about the final product as much as I did. Christina has a beautiful voice and once we began working together I had no doubt she would deliver, with the end result blowing away any and all expectations. She's easily taken my music to the next level and I couldn't be happier.
I've had the pleasure of working with Christina for a song, and her vocal abilities and writing played a critical role in helping the song come to life! I was pleased with the final product and very thankful to work alongside her. 1000% recommend!
I started working with Christina when I was searching for a vocalist for an acoustic project I was working on. Her voice and delivery blends perfectly with the style of music I'm trying to create. Her ability to discern nuances and deliver a preferred performance, all with little description and coaching, makes the working relationship an extremely enjoyable one. She gives life to song ideas that I otherwise would not be able to explore. It would be hard to imagine not having her on future song ideas.
I've worked with Christina before and she is talented, professional and a good communicator. Give her a try for your next project!
Interview with Christina Rotondo
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: A high range and a powerful dynamic. I've covered Zara Larssons Symphony which a lot of clients have referenced from my sample showreel. I work a lot in rock, and offer contrasting melodic vocals, so to have a strong voice which can belt with a high range is what I consider my 'thing'.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been working in music for a long time - in bands, solo music, working even just on my YouTube channel. But I've been a freelance session vocalist for about two years now. Honestly, I love it. I love the freedom and I'm so glad that my voice has given me the path to be able to become freelance. I didn't really have a plan but I knew I really wanted to sing and I'm truly glad that clients have put the faith of their music in my hands.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Communication is key. Communication is all that I ask for! It's the best way that we can ensure a really seamless transaction. (That, and please make sure you have your BPM ready haha!)
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are your stylistic requirements? Have you written this song with a female in mind? Often, if a male client has written their vocals - It's more common than you think that the vocal have been written for a male. That means that the key can be completely off for a female. Write the vocals with whoever you want to sing in mind, and have a think about how you want them to be performed too. The more information a singer can get from you, the better.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: I get asked about my 'accent' in tracks a lot. I'll perform in either a British (standard) or American accent. But I always say the same thing - people like to fake their accents in singing - for some reason they go default American. I'm British - I was born in London. So why would I sing with an accent that isn't how I actually speak in real life? I've been told many times it makes my vocals more unique anyway - which I love. Saying that, I do sing with an American accent for clients that require it.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love the freedom and the chance to get to work with exciting clients and brands from all over the world - what isn't cool about that?
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: We'll work until you're happy - that is the most important thing of this whole process. YOU need to be happy with the finished result.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: At the moment i'm working on a lot of smaller tracks that clients have reached out to me via my YouTube or bands recommending me - that means a lot of metal/alternative rock clients. Which I really enjoy doing. On the other spectrum, I'm writing a full track for an EDM client. His track captivated me though, and whilst I had a lot of co-writing work on, it's something I couldn't say no to!
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I recently performed for a director who made a film called 'Above the Clouds.' He initially hired me on Fiverr, and after that order, invited me down to his studio in London where I tracked vocals for the soundtrack to the film. After that, the film got picked up by the RainDance film festival, and I got invited to the premiere in London. It was amazing getting to share that - and seeing my name on the credits!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I do a lot of session work and co-writing for clients. Either you have written the full track or you're looking for someone to write the lyrics and melodies - but I only work on a selective of co-writing.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Musicians with a punchy and powerful voice. I love artists that have a unique tone.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I record on an iMac, using Logic Pro X. I have Scarlett Focusrite and record into a PG42.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Firstly - communication is key. Once I've got everything I need from you i'll go ahead and get to work. I'll keep you updated, and if I think there might need to be a change to the song I might get in touch to send you a sample just to see how you'd like me to progress. We'll go through approvals to ensure that you're happy and then I can deliver the final stems.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Power. If you're looking for strong vocals with a high range, i'm your girl! Also, versatility. I work a lot in Rock, but a lot of the session work I do is pop and EDM.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: A lot of Rock/Alternative as my passion/hobby, but I do a lot of session work focusing on anywhere from pop, EDM, to trance.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Fresh ears. Always! If you've been working on something for a while - leave it. Come back to it after an hour or so and listen with a new perspective.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Hayley williams because she is badass.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Unique, powerful and punchy.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: 5 pieces seems too easy! But.. In reality there would be no power and batteries would die ..so.. maybe just my iphone and guitar!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I don't know what I'm talking about or I'm a pushover because Im a young female. My worst experiences (honestly) doing session work has been through people on the platforms who try to use my age and gender as an advantage. In reality, for me its all about two things. Communication and professionalism. I don't discriminate, and if you can be professional to me, I will be the same to you. But that means I also don't give free passes - I don't do free work and I refuse to be personally insulted for being professional.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital - because it's all I've ever used!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I was actually introduced to the platform by someone who hired me elsewhere - shoutout to Josh R!
