I specialize in creative top lining and vocal production (think lots of vocal pitching, tuning, chopping & just playing with vocal recordings). I love creating ear candy!
I'm a vocalist, music producer, and musical artist. I currently produce my own alternative pop music as Ruby Swan and I've top lined tracks for producers Camber, Command_Prompt, Dark Demeanour, and Johnny Molfetta. I've also recorded lead vocals for Jason McKay (JMK Audio Productions) and provided backing vocals for Tall Ships and Jackson Reed (Heavy Heart Sound Studios).
My work is heavily inspired by hyperpop music (i.e. music producers like A.G. Cook, Danny L Harle, Dylan Brady and Laura Les, and artists such as Caroline Polachek, Charli XCX, Dorian Electra, and Hannah Diamond). I love creating pitched, distorted, and chopped vocals. Whether you have vocals that need creative processing or want your song experimentally top lined, I'm all about creating alternative and unique vocals.
