    If you need a song with top notch vocals. Hire this guy. He's a superstar and one day soon you won't be able to have these vocals on your demo cause this voice will be on the radio. (The pitched demo we provided was solid BUT his vocals took it to another level.)

    Brandon is obviously a singer that has come to the attention of big stars and it is no surprise as he has a very modern Country voice.He worked very well on a recent song I recorded with him and he just adds that extra touch you need for finishing good songs.Book him before he goes top 10

    This is the third song I worked on with Brandon. Brandon is a brilliant talent from vocals to guitar to you name it he does it. Brandon is the real deal and I feel the next country superstar on the horizon. I feel blessed and humbled to be able to have Brandon help make my songs come alive. I hope to hire Brandon for many more projects and I urge you to as well.

    Brandon is awesome!!!! I feel blessed to be able to have this cyber connection. His voice is amazing and he is a down to earth cool guy. If you're looking for some awesome well thought out,well-recorded with a fast turn-a-round, Brandon's your man. I will say this, grab this man while you can. I have a good feeling he will be on the top of the Nashville charts fairly soon and we all might not be able to get to him this easily.
    Thanks again Brandon, I'll cyber see you on the next track. :)

    Brandon might be new to SoundBetter, but that was one of THE BEST experiences we've ever had on the site. We work a lot on here and there's a lot of talent. But Brandon is just plain awesome, a cut above most of the male singers we've worked with. His tone and vocal range is really impressive and the final result was radio ready and competitive out of the gate. Oh, and he's super cool too! HIGHLY recommend!

    Brandon is simply amazing. The emotional intimacy, energy, melodic interpretation, lift, powerhouse vocals and life he breathe into my song was spot on. Brandon sings with so much heart. His vocals captured everything I envisioned and took my song on an exciting, cool journey from beginning to end. He has that "it" factor!

Interview with Brandon Ray

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

  2. A: The most common type of work I do for my clients are: - Recording Lead Vocal, High/Low Harmonies, & Stacks for full songs. - Topline/Melody songwriting on client's songs. - Recording Acoustic & Electric guitar parts.

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

  4. A: My producer, and musical hero, Keith Urban has inspired me for as long as I can remember. His guitar playing, singing, songwriting, and production is unmatched. What he taught me in the studio was to stand by what I was creating. I have to love it because my name is on it. Be proud of what you do and put your heart and soul into it. Other musicians/producers that inspire me are Mutt Lange, Bryan Adams, Dann Huff, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Allen Stone, Jesse Frasure, Shane Mcanally, Timbaland, Rick Rubin, Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Bruno Mars & more.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: My studio setup is very simple but very effective. - Universal Audio Apollo Twin Thunderbolt - Audio Technica 4033 Microphone - Pro Tools I work in a vibey quiet space that allows me to focus 100% on the project at hand.

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

  8. A: If i'm recording a vocal for a new song, I typically spend a couple hours learning and digging in, in order to give the best performance and emotion possible. Same with guitars. If a recording is rushed or forced, I believe any listener can see through it.

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

  10. A: I used to think technicality and precision were the most important things to bring to a song. Those are definitely important, but beyond anything I believe it's definitive to bring heart and emotion. If the listener doesn't feel anything when they hear the song, they'll never come back to it.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: If you've ever heard of the Enneagram personality test, I am #2. The Helper. I feel that feeds my strongest skill which is helping people achieve the goals they dream of achieving. In this case, I want to help bring your songs to life and to the level you're hoping for.

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

  14. A: Living in Nashville, I'm typically working on Country music. However, my background is in the Rock/Pop world which is popping up more and more in my world this past year. I've also recently started finding success in the TV/Film/Synch world. So any given day, it could be anything - which I'm very thankful for.

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

  16. A: Seek advice! Don't be afraid to get someone's thoughts about something you're working on or a question you have. 2 heads are better than one. Also - have fun, don't take yourself too seriously, and make sure you're PROUD of what you've created.

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

  18. A: Bryan Adams. I personally feel that he oozes "cool" in everything he does. His writing, playing, and personality is so real. Would love to write a song then go get a beer with him!

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

  20. A: - I grew up in west Texas where there is nothing but football, dirt, and Jesus haha! I dreamed of being an athlete, but an injury forced me to quit. At 13, I bought a cheap guitar, learned every Stevie Ray Vaughn song possible, and started writing HORRIBLE songs. - From there, I started a rock band with my brother Ryan (drummer). When we graduated high school we joined the Warped Tour and spent 3 years touring all over the country learning life lessons you couldn't learn anywhere else. - At 21, I moved to Nashville, focused on songwriting, and sought out some of my heroes to truly learn the craft. Before landing a publishing deal the first year, I sang demos/tv jingles, played guitar for artists, waited tables, and worked on cars. - Soon I started landing rock cuts with bands like Hinder & others. - 4 years into living in Nashville, I joined Brett Eldredge's band and toured the country opening for Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, and more. - Shortly after leaving Brett, I signed with Sony/ATV publishing and started touring as a solo artist. - Then Signed with Warner/Chappell Publishing and BOOM music (Keith Urban/Ross Copperman) Released my EP (Body Language) last year with the highlight being a song called "Ends Of the Earth" with Keith Urban singing BGV's. Since then i've been touring like crazy, recording a brand new project, and enjoying working on SoundBetter.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: Gibson Hummingbird, '62 Fender strat, Fender Princeton Amp, A water filtration device, and a flare to alert ANYONE to take me back home haha!

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

  24. A: I'd say be open and Don't be afraid to overcommunicate what you're looking for.

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

  26. A: I like being able to wake up and do exactly what I love to do everyday.

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

  28. A: My promise is to deliver everything they're looking for to the very best of my ability.

  29. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  30. A: Both! We started with Analog - it inspired millions. Then it evolved into digital. Both can coexist and allow everyone to create the way they see fit.

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

  32. A: I'm currently working on many project for TV/Film as well as a brand new band called Badland Sons.
