    It is my pleasure to write a review of Stephen Thomas Sims who did vocals on my song.
    Stephen is a very talented vocalist/artist. He was very dedicated on this project and very perfectionist in wanting to get the vocals perfect for my song.
    The warmth in his voice gave beautiful emotion to my song and lifted it to another level. Beautiful lead vocals and harmonies.
    A truly wonderful experience.

    10 out of 10, not only the performance but the whole communication, workflow, understanding the project (sometimes I feel he better understand what I wanted than I did). I don't know if there's any instrumentation Stephen can't bring shine to, as well as change direction if needed. Second project together - I think we understand each other without much words. At least, better via messaging than with my bassist in the same room :)

    Stephen and I work effortlessly together. He manages the brief superbly and adds suggestions (good ones) where he can.

    Allied with a fabulous voice and musical ability, I will not hesitate to use him again.

    Great singer, amazing voice, song never sounded better. Stephen was able to give me exactly what I asked for and added his own touch. I am thrilled to bits with the final result. Every step of the remote session was done professionally and communication was smooth and efficient. I can only highly recommend working with Stephen. Thank you, Stephen and happy holidays.

Interview with Stephen Thomas Sims

  1. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  2. A: My strongest two skills are production and vocals. I have been a vocalist for many years now and I pride myself on knowing how to deliver the vocal you are after. I know the time needed to create commercially viable recordings and to achieve it. This has come from years of working with top vocal coaches and with producers in studios globally.

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

  4. A: I bring my creative inspiration, talent and versatility. Every vocalist and producer has their own unique vision. I would say I can bring an honesty and truth to pieces. I like to create music that really speaks to people in different ways regardless of genre.

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

  6. A: I like to start with finding out exactly what the client wants with the project. I can then see how we can both move forward. Before any full production stage, I like to take the piece back to scratch and find out what I need to bring to it. This differs with each project but I like to update my client as I go. I think its good to see a natural, progressive workflow.

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

  8. A: With my TV/film pieces I am extremely inspired by Hans Zimmer, who I believe is a genius of sound design and instrumentation. Melodically I am a huge fan of Danny Elfman, I also have a love for his smaller orchestral arrangements. For contemporary music, I am inspired by Ryan Tedder, George Michael, Depeche Mode, Hurts, Pet Shop Boys and Elton John. I like melody and soul within music & if that can be married with a great production - I want to get on board.

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

  10. A: I've been lucky to have varied work. From session work at high-level quick turnarounds; collaborating on tracks as a featured vocalist - writing the top-line, lyrics; composing for Tv, Film & Game and producing artists E.P. It's always been different. Which I think is musically and technically good for any musician/producer. I think it also shows my artistry, professionalism and versatility well.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: I have a small but well-equipped studio set up. I also use a local studio for further detailed mixing/mastering. I use a Neumann TLM 102, WA -87, a Se 4400a all into an ISA-ONE Focusrite Pre-amp. Logic PRO X is my main DAW. I have all of the latest top quality VST'S including Orchestral Tools - Spitfire Audio - Cinestrings - EWQL - WAVES - Spectrasonics and more. The studio is well equipped for what I need to execute big projects.
