Claire on SoundBetter

Experienced high-quality singer with great communication & eagerness to ensure perfection. I've done 20+ songs professionally since Sep. 2018. I specialize in pop/EDM music. You should consider hiring me because I deliver great work. I am also a ProTools user-certified professional. I hope to work with you soon, thank you for your interest!

My style is more suited to pop, EDM, Alternative, and R&B. I’m most comfortable in mid/high range and my tone can be strong (Demi Lovato, Sia) or soft (Billie Eilish, Sabrina Claudio). I’m very open to criticism and direction for projects.

My biggest musical achievement would be traveling to South Korea to perform in a children's show as "Maria" from Sound of Music. I went to school for Audio Engineering and I’m user-certified in ProTools 10 (which I use ver12.7 at home.) I have experience in songwriting but it is not a service I provide.

I OFFER:
Main Vocals - Main vocals of a song or jingle less than 5 minutes (includes backing vocals)
Harmonies & Adlibs - Harmonies & adlibs for your song
(Before purchasing, please be sure you are able to provide your song with a guide vocal as well as lyrics because I do not offer songwriting or alterations.)

MY SETUP:
Mac Mini
Focusrite ISA One
Warm Audio WA-2A
Focusrite Clarett
Aston Origin
Shure SM7b
ProTools 12

Don’t be shy when it comes to your desired artistic direction! It’s your product after all! :)
Thank you for your time, I hope to work with you soon!

Interview with Claire

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: I converted my closet into a "booth" so I record on a Aston Origin microphone (with the nice SwiftShield popfilter). My preamp is the Focusrite ISA One into a Warm Audio WA-2A hardware compressor and my audio interface is the Focusrite Clarett. I operate exclusively in ProTools 12.7

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

  4. A: Mostly some form of electronic or pop. That's mostly the type of music I listen to or sing along with at home so it's definitely my style when I record.

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

  6. A: Powerhouse pop vocalists greatly inspire me. I grew up loving Demi Lovato and despite her personal struggles she still continues to be an icon for me. Ariana Grande is a big role-model for me too. I would love to one day follow the steps of Bebe Rexha, Julia Michaels, Sia, etc of being a session-singer long enough to become an artist but until then I'll happily be at home recording your music! :)

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

  8. A: Import all the reference tracks, set up the tempo/grid, place markers at phrase beginnings, and then loop record chunks of the song. I record 5-10 takes and then edit the best ones together. This creates the best natural take (no pitch-correction) while still sounding seamless.

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

  10. A: I don't offer writing technically but vocally I have fun with the project (if you let me haha!) My pop-influences help me add cool runs that may be hard for other singers. Of course I can't perfectly mimic another singer (such as Ariana Grande) but I'd consider myself versatile enough to match the style/performance. My biggest concern is making sure my client is happy with the final product.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Probably my pitch. I get asked a lot if I used any pitch-correction on my roughdraft takes, haha! As I mentioned in another question above, I edit all of my takes and cut them together to create one great take, no FX required.

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

  14. A: Pop. Whenever I'm not working on music for others, I really love learning and recording pop covers.

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

  16. A: Use input-monitoring!! So many vocalists don't use it... It's imperative you hear what you sound like on the recording WHILE you're recording!

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

  18. A: Probably Bebe Rexha or Olivia Obrien. They write a lot of their own music and I feel like a session with either of them would be so awesome to experience.

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: Pop all the way. I love doing runs and hitting high-notes because it sounds good and is fun!

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

  22. A: I've been singing since I was a kid. I wanted to be a superstar but I discovered session-singing last year and realized it was a much more comfortable lifestyle for me. Currently I work retail fulltime and do music parttime. I've been operating on another website like this since September 2018 and already have worked with 10+ clients and completed 20+ songs. I would love to make this my fulltime job.

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

  24. A: Just make sure you have a clear reference track and instrumental. Session-singers don't care what you sound like. A lot of clients I've had were shy about their performance on the reference but we don't mind! You hire us for a reason ;)

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

  26. A: I like to know what preferences you have for this project such as tone, style, file formats, adlibs, FX, or anything else important. My biggest struggle sometimes is when the client doesn't fully inform me on what they want. In order to save time for both parties, it's important to be 100% clear and confident on what you want!

  27. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  28. A: At my dayjob, most people ask me if I perform so I have to explain the difference between a performing artist and a session artist haha

  29. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  30. A: Do I require royalties? The answer is NO :D I do NOT require royalties as my service is a work-for-hire.

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

  32. A: It's always fun to sing new songs. I find it makes me a better singer. Plus recording all the time is good practice as I get quicker & quicker each time.

  33. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  34. A: I will do my best to deliver your dream result.

  35. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  36. A: For live sound, analog boards are easier for me to operate. For recording, digital because it's what I use haha!

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

  38. A: Trying to transition to singing fulltime. Until then, I'll be working on covers and other hired work!

  39. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  40. A: I collaborated on a Pop/Stars cover on Youtube. It has 500k+ views. I sang as the part of Madison Beer (Evelynn) and it was a lot of fun. Probably the highest quality project I've ever worked on.
