From cutting edge power to emotional and intimate intention Ranging from blues and pop to rock and metal and EDM, I am open to different genres. I am a songwriter, lyricist, a melody whisperer and earworms creater. I want to make the song you can’t get out of your head and wake up singing.
Available for: Vocal Session work, Demo Singing, Lyrics, Topline writing.
Although rock music has been my most common area of work I am comfortable with different genres because I grew up and was influenced by many artists going from pop, soul, blues, jazz and punk.
Session Vocals: I will provide a dry mix high quality recording of my vocal performance so you can mix and edit the way you want it.
Upon completion, I will send you the reference rough mix, you can revise up to 1 time for free (exceptions may apply).
By revision, please understand: Minor/logical changes, not redoing a full session from scratch.
If you provide guidelines to follow I will follow it, so please be the specific of what your aim is, as much as possible. :) It's the best for both ends and makes the process easier.
When contacting for a proposal please include a clip of the song.
When writing toplines you will be sent a one take for approval.
Demos will be protected until payment is made. After that I will send you separate tracks.
Rock/Metal : Features on commercial releases upon specific agreement.
While I’m proud of all work I do, I ask this simply to separate music I work on as a hired musician/singer from music I write, produce and release as an artist.
Just check my terms of service for more info. :)

Working with Nya was an amazing experience.
She is an awesome singer, and knows exactly what you want or imagine.
She's also a stellar lyricist and writer!
Highly recommended and I'll hire her again very soon.
In the price-benefit field, it's really a bargain!
Collaborating with Nya is an incredible process of sharing ideas so as to reach something more than what was expected. It's a process I would repeat over and over with her. Absolutely amazing!
she knows what she is doing and i'd definitely contact her again for anything that involves rock atmosphere!
Asked Phee to do something out of her comfort zone and she nailed it. Difficult to communicate how something should sound sometimes without another song to reference and she seems to really connect with the vibe of the song and give what it needs. The harmonies and vocal tones are on point. I'm mixing the tracks she gave with a smile on my face.
Phee delivered when another person I hired could not. The track required a range of dynamics and vocal style and she nailed it. She is professional, timely, and pleasant. Looking forward to working on other tracks with her.
I've worked with her on multiple songs and she never fails to deliver just amazing parts for the track. She is great to work with and hope to work with her more.
Phee delivered a very powerful and creative vocal. It fit my song super well. I think she is super talented, highly recommend working with her.
Amazing! Professional! Creative!
Phee is a top-tier songwriter and performer. I had some music written for which I wanted her to add lyrics in her native Portuguese and then sing on the track. Her lyrics were great and her performance was unbelievable. One of the best experiences that I have had on Soundbetter. Highly recommended for both songwriting and vocals.
She is such an amazing talent and so much fun to work with on my songs. I gave her a very special song to me and she made it just so perfect and it really means the world to me. Please work with her if you get a chance
I have worked with her on another song and she did an amazing job so I threw a couple more her way and was blown away again. She is very professional and delivers amazing results. You can tell how much pride she takes in her craft and I really appreciate all of the great vocals
She was just amazing to work with and enjoyed the conversation back and forth for the song. Her vocals and lyrics fit the song just perfectly and really hope to work with her again very soon. Such an amazing talent.
I'm very impressed by Nya's vocals and the wide range of flavours of her voice. Nya did a great job with the vocals, top line, harmonies etc. I think this is the 4th time working with her and it is always a real pleasure :)
She is professional and easy to work with. Superb!!
Just finished my second rock/hardrock project with the amazing Phee-K! Killer tone, feel and quality of recordings! Will be back for more!
A true professional in all aspects and an amazing person to work with that can brings ideas to life.
Wonderful and Professional. This is my third time around and the results are just spectacular. Nothing less than perfect.
Nya was absolutely fantastic to work with! Her communication was fast and very personable, and her experience as a singer/musician shows by the final product she was able to create. Whether it be softer-tone melodies, or hard rock grit, she can deliver quality vocals. Do not hesitate to contact her if you need a singer that can make a song truly shine. She will be my go-to for any female vocals in the future that I might need!
she will be my first 'go-to' singer for any song that requires energy! simply a natural rock singer with unquestionably professionalism to make your track - more alive. ill be another repeated clients!
As always Nya provides pure perfection and professionalism to the work. I am always amazed at how she interprets the song and creates the final touches to complete the transformation. Communication is always excellent and the final product is nothing but spectacular.
Nya was amazing to work with! excellent communication and professional. Her vocal talent is unquestioned. She took my vision and brought it to life. Will definitely work with her again and recommend her 100%.
Interview with NYA
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am super proud of the work me and She Was Silver have done last month. The song was awesome and I loved it. I did topline, lyrics and singing.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My band's next release and a couple of songs that go way out of my usual genre of work. All fun :)
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Yes, my band's drummer Hugo Ribeiro.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The connection. The feelings that emerge. Being able to deliver something that makes someone feel like I understood their song.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: - What's the mood of the song? - What are you aiming for? - What subjects you DON'T want to address to on lyrics?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Always make sure you hear the reel and send a sample from the song you want to work on. Make sure you "visualize" the singers voice in your composition. Always be clear about what you are looking for.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started singing in church when I was very little. I ended up leaving music behind when I stopped going there and began my path in theater. When I was 17 years old and dropped out of highschool, as I was watching a concert from The Mission I realized this was I wanted to do with my life. I started my own band, a gothic rock band, back then. Since then I've had two more bands and now I have my long time project which is my biggest passion. I also did musical theater in between.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Unfortunately he's no longer with us. Because he was such a big part of my growing up and training as a singer, I would have loved to work with George Michael.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I believe my strongest skill is the ability to connect with the music I am offered.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My biggest dedication and emotion. For me music as always been about feelings, emotions and introspection. I try to make the songs "mine" in the same way I do in my own music.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually ask for a sample before I accept the job, once we reach an agreement I take a few days to study the song and memorize it as much as I can to make the recording process as most natural as possible. Depending on what the client is looking for, I might take more or less time to get into the mood of the work.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Effort, dedication, passion.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Being a singer is the easy way out in a band ... 'cause you don't have gear to carry around! (lol)
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Acoustic Guitar, Xilophone, Drums. There's no electricity, right? ;)
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Raspy, edgy, mellow, sensitive, catchy. Honestly, it really depends on the song I'm working on. :)
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work on almost all types of genres although rock and metal have been present in the majority of my musical career.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My biggest inspiration in music has always been George Michael. I know it sounds a bit crazy because I am a rock artist, but he was actually the reason why I started singing. I spent years studying his songwriting and vocal melodies as well as his lyrics. For me he was one of the most sincere and open heart artists of our time.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I've actually been doing a bit of everything. Songs where I do vocal melody, lyrics and session singing, songs where I only did lyrics and session and others where I just did melodies. I love doing all of these, so it's been really exciting.
