Kamber C. Kigin on SoundBetter

My name is Kamber and I am a Nashville-based pianist, vocalist, and songwriter. My distinctive blend of raw, passionate vocals and classical training will add a special finesse to your next project.

I have been playing piano since I was only 5 years old, but it wasn't until I was a teenager that the passion for art, music, and performing ignited inside my heart. Born and raised in Central Florida, I started my musical journey with the piano. Raised on Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, and Debussy, I fell in love with the great classical composers. However, when I became a teenager, my love for rock and alternative music was found in bands and artists such as Tori Amos, Imogen Heap, Nirvana, Flyleaf, Foo Fighters, Kate Bush, Soundgarden, and Muse just to name a few. I believe my love for classical and rock music fuses together to give me a unique sound.

Currently, I am the lead vocalist and songwriter of an alternative rock band called Raviner, and I also perform as a solo artist (KAMBER). I've been performing as a solo artist and with a band for more than 5 years.

Because of my intense musical training, I have a wide set of skills that helps me collaborate with other artists and musicians. I am a strong sightreader for sheet music and chord charts, as well as a strong "ear player". I am comfortable improvising, composing, and creating parts and melodies. I like to think of myself as a skilled "musical problem solver". Whether you need a simple piano accompaniment, a fully composed string or orchestral arrangement, a lyric, or a vocal melody or hook, I can help!

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    I really enjoyed the process of working witih Kamber for the first time and look forward to working with her soon. Why? Because she communicates often, providing samples and taking guidance on changing the delivery style, power etc...

    Kamber is a great communicator. She asked great questions and looked to understand what we wanted from her piano composition. She worked quickly to deliver the final track and kept us updated with samples along the way. She sought feedback, guidance and clarification. The tracks she delivered is exceptional and we would be happy to work with her again.

    Kamber has recorded several songs on my album that I will be releasing in August. Working with Kamber is amazing, she is so talented in many areas: song writing, keys, vocals, arranging , producing. She is a true artist in all these area's. With Kamber it's one stop shopping. She's easy to work with and has great communication skills. It is a pleasure to work with her and she will be working with me a lot in the future.

    "Thank You"! I feel like your presentation of the melody, piano, and your vocals projects an authentic feeling of what I was feeling when I wrote the song. You are very talented! Thank you, thank you! Teresa

    Kamber recently worked for me on an album I produced. She sang on one song an absolutely killed it! She was an artist in the most literal sense of the word. She was able to get inside of and grab ahold of the song and its true meanings. Truly a pleasure to work with.

    Simply put, Kamber doesn't write anything bad ever. She is a true professional who takes every project just as seriously as if it were her own. Kamber is classically trained and has her degree in music (AKA she knows everything) but even better, she feels and connects with the art.

Interview with Kamber C. Kigin

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

  2. A: I highly recommend Thomas Daniel. He is a fantastic vocalist, songwriter, and has an incredible knack for creating beautiful, ear-catching melodies. I also recommend Geena Fontanella. She is a powerhouse vocalist! For any of your producing, mixing, or mastering needs, I would definitely recommend Rob Shollenberger (RompStomp Inc) at Sound Pallet Studios - they are known for creating a big studio sound with an indie budget. And for your bass guitar, synthesizing, producing, and/or arranging needs, go ahead and reach out to Josh Howard - he never disappoints!

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

  4. A: My promise to my clients is that I will not finish a project until they are absolutely happy. No settling!

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

  6. A: Who are your artistic and/or musical influences? What inspires you?

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

  8. A: My ukulele, acoustic guitar, upright piano, notebook, and a pencil! All assuming they wouldn't get ruined by thunderstorms or swept away by the tides. ;)

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: Cinematic, dark, haunting, ambient, raw, visceral, edgy, wistful, melancholy, pensive, reflective, emotional

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

  12. A: I would absolutely love to work with Swedish-based production house // indie record label 'to whom it may concern'. They manage visionary artists and bands like ionnalee and iamamiwhoami. Their beautiful electronic, cinematic soundscapes are so inspiring to me.

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

  14. A: Singer-songwriter music wrapped in ambient-pop soundscapes, as well as raw, stripped-down piano-driven or guitar-driven tracks with an alternative rock edge. I often utilize other acoustic instruments for songwriting and arranging including my Taylor acoustic and my soprano-sized ukulele for further inspiration.

  15. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  16. A: I have a professional home demo setup including a MacBook Pro Computer, Scarlett 2i2, Logic Pro X, Perception 200 Condensor, Alesis V61, AKAI L29, and Kawai ES100 Stage Piano. I have MIDI capabilities as well as direct audio out capabilities. Because I am Nashville-based, I also have access to professional studios including Sound Pallet Studios and Gnome Studios that I use for full vocal production projects.

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

  18. A: Some of the most common work I do for my clients is piano,keyboard, and synthesizer parts. I can easily create just the right melodies, hooks, riffs, or full accompaniments that a song or track needs. I also often write songs from scratch using a given track or fleshed out arrangement for support, or sometimes with only a simple concept or idea. I've also composed string and orchestral arrangements for clients, depending on the needs of the song!

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

  20. A: I am currently getting ready to release a 5-song EP with my band, Raviner, and am also in the studio writing and recording for my own solo project.

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

  22. A: Chris Cornell, Hayley Williams, iamamiwhoami, Imogen Heap, ionnalee, Kate Bush, Kurt Cobain, Lacey Sturm, Plumb, Sia, Stevie Nicks, Tori Amos

    Just recently invested in a wonderful new stage piano - Kawai ES100. It has absolutely stunning piano sounds that resemble an acoustic grand piano perfectly! It's great for recording all sorts of styles and genres. So excited to use it with my clients to add beautiful piano to their tracks.
