    Great vocals and delivered very fast(2 days). Jaki also helped with recording harmonies which sounded excellent along with the leads. Overall a very pleasant experience and well worth what you pay for!

    Jaki is an absolute pro with a killer voice. She delivered exactly what our song needed and more. Very dynamic singer, able to belt, or sing intimately with an amazing tone. She sent the highest quality vocal stems (Jaki would sound great on any gear… but she happens to have a world class vocal chain). She was fast, easy to work with and paid attention to every detail. I can't wait to work with her again!

Interview with Jaki Nelson

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

  2. A: My quarantine album!

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

  4. A: More often than not, I'll get your song done in 3 days or less. In the event that I don't, I will always get your project done in the allotted time. Guaranteed.

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

  6. A: I'm not big on questions, I'm big on getting it done.

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

  8. A: Make sure that the song is in a key that the singer sounds good in, and that they have the range to hit all the notes you want them to! Sometimes, I have to make minor adjustments to the melody because a certain low note is simply impossible for me to hit, but I always clear it with the producer/writer first.

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

  10. A: Neumann u87, Neve 1073, my laptop, my Korg Grandstage, and a Behringer Xenyx 502 so I'll have something to burn. ;)

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

  12. A: I record final vocals for producers and songwriters at my home studio.

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

  14. A: About 60% of the artists on any given New Music Friday playlist. As far as specific artists, I love the style of Camila Cabello's voice, the writing style of Julia Michaels, and the production style of Selena Gomez.

  15. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  16. A: I run Logic Pro X for recording purposes. I record into the industry standard Neumann u87 into a Neve 1073.

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

  18. A: Once I have received the demo, I listen to it a few times with the lyrics in front of me, start learning it, breaking down the lyrics to understand what the song is about and how it should be sung, and then I start recording as soon as I can.

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

  20. A: Years of in-studio experience, as well as on massive stages. I've charted as a songwriter and recording artist on Billboard 4 times, 2 of those times getting into the top 10. I've worked with Grammy nominees and winners and Mainstream Top 40 artists.

  21. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  22. A: In-studio vocals.

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

  24. A: Dance, Indie Dance, Indie, and Pop.

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

  26. A: After you time all of your vocals perfectly, move the whole vocal 2 or 3 milliseconds to the right. It'll make the whole vocal feel more relaxed.

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

  28. A: The Monsters and Strangerz. They're the best in the industry.

  29. Q: How would you describe your style?

  30. A: Pop leaning.

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

  32. A: I started singing somewhere around birth, started taking piano and voice lessons around 8, got really into production at about 17, and I've been doing it ever since.

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

  34. A: That just because I'm a trained singer, that I'm not a musician. I have years of ongoing music theory study, piano study, and thousands of hours of classes and experience in production.

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

  36. A: I've had a lot of producers ask me how I am able to phase myself on a double. I guess I'm really really consistent! lol

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

  38. A: I'm a lifelong computer nerd. I love sitting in my studio and making my recordings and productions PERFECT.

  39. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  40. A: Digital. Who wants to be sitting around cutting tape all day?

  41. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  42. A: Ron Geffen. GREAT producer, and he's crazy fast. He once sent me a master in the time it took me to drive home from his studio. Tell him I sent you!

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

  44. A: I'm very proud of my song "Dancing With Strangers". I wrote it with Grammy winner Dave Aude and Lauren Dyson (writer for BTS). It went Top 10 on Billboard as the only independent song in the top 20, and we got to tour with it all over California.
