Very professional and helpful, and a great voice. Hope to work with her again
Chris is the most professional and talented song writer out there. This my second time working with her and I will keep coming back
Chris is an amazing singer and songwriter. She is professional, very kind, a great communicator and her voice is top-notch. It was a huge pleasure to work with her and I can truly recommend Chris to everyone. Thanks Chris.
Chris was so professional. She did the song quick and it was so much better than I expected it could be. She is a true talent.
Very eager. Great singer. She will make multiple passes until you're satisfied. Takes direction well.
Chris was totally on her game - both business and talent wise. She returned messages promptly, took direction beautifully, was polite, respectful, and gave me exactly what I asked or within the time period requested. I would give her a 10 out of 10! A real talent and pleasure to work with!
Gave Chris a really challenging job of having to work with a song that blends two languages together, and to have her create backing vocals and design choruses for the track. She brought the track to another level with her creativity and beautiful vocals. Not only does she deliver fast, but it comes with perfection and stellar quality.
Chris you are the best!!! With you everything is easy and quick. I can't wait to work with you soon and make a lot of good things together.
It was truly an honor to work with Chris! This is my first time doing a project and she made it so smooth and took my song to a completely different level! I am so thankful for Chris and I highly suggest that you use her services each and every time! I know I'll be back!!! Five Star work!
Really enjoyed working with Chris! She made the demo process simple and easy. Quality work, recording, and communication!
This is my second time working with Chris. She's the best! No job is too big or too small. And she always delivers on time and with the highest quality. Can't wait to work with her again.
You are a god-send! You knew what I needed before I knew I even needed it. You made my project 100 times better. I will definitely be back. Thank you soooo much!

Chris is very talented and realized my Project in a correct way.
She also has a great voice..
A massive relief to get my song done right. The track meant a lot to me and Chris nailed it. Such a great relief, you can rely on her to get it right 'cause she cares. She has great intuition and knows what to do, how to 'bring it'!

Wonderful Singer.........Chris and I are just getting started, Watch Out!
Chris gave me exactly what I needed, and she didn't charge me an arm and a leg to do something simple. Will definitely work with her again!
She is magic...reads your mind..fills in the blanks for you..gives you what the song needs. Her tone and harmonies. were very fresh and unique, no cliche runs..totally original.
Excellent vocals. Very attentive quick to respond, great attitude not only delivered but surpassed expectation. I love the track because of her work.
An absolute pleasure to work with Chris, in every respect she checked all the boxes; communicated well, delivered on time and with full professionalism throughout, delivering her vocals even more perfectly than I had hoped for! Looking forward to the next time I have a project for her. Thank you Chris!!
Chris is amazing! She has a huge voice and range. Very professional and creative. She gave my song LIFE and made me experience it in a different way. If you want someone who can keep the integrity of your song but can also contribute further emotion she is your girl.
Not only did Chris provide a lightning fast turnaround but her vocals really made the song! I am looking forward to working with Chris again soon!
She is honestly incredible, and no matter what it is, she can take your vision and really bring it to life! And can do it extremely fast too!
Chris was a real pleasure to work with. Her vocals are great!
Very good work, once again!
Prompt and sounded great
Chris was very professional. She delivered on time and her harmonies really lifted the song. Really pleased.
When I contact Chris to write and make the melody of my title, I did not believe too much because it is a music that she obviously did not know. She pleasantly surprised me. She has adaptability and ease in creativity. I feel that she puts all her heart into work that is given to her. We can say now she also sing Zouk music. Jole
Very creative and fast!
Very polite and professional. Highly recommend.
Wonderful unique voice, very professional and fast response. We really can recommend her.
Chris was extremely easy to work with - she took the idea and ran with it, delivered ahead of schedule and provided constant communication throughout.

I really enjoyed working with Chris, felt sad hitting job completed.. really hate to see such talent walk away.
Continuous success Chris
A very talented vocalist with great style and poise. Great work!
Chris was truly a pleasure to work with. She understood what I was trying to portray and made the words her very own. She exceeded what I expected by far; I would strongly recommend her to anyone in search for top notch singing with a personality to match.
Chris was easy to work with and definitely brought my song to life ! She is the truth !!!
Pretty darn good. Some really nice ideas in there. Hopefully have a chance to do it all again sometime.

It was a pleasure to work with Chris. She is very easy to work with, creative, and has a very unique voice.
Interview with Chris Hall
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I don't have one specific project but I do have songs that I have written for other artists that are some of my favorite songs and I feel some of my best work. I love to write for other singers as well.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am currently working on a small compilation of songs, entitled "For the Love"
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not yet, but I am continually building relationships and open to collaboration.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Hmmm, when it comes to music, I don't believe in "either or". I think there can be a happy balance between analog and digital. Technology is great but not when it takes from the emotion of a song. And analog is great too, but if there are too many other interfering noises on a track then it may cause the listener to be distracted from other elements of the music. Technology should enhance not strip away art. That's my take on it.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Honesty and professionalism. I like to be up front with clients so that they know exactly what to look forward to when working with me. I am thorough and I believe the listener is able to hear that in my music. I also believe that having a professional attitude will get you very far in the music business.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to create! At the end of the day, that's what's most satisfying and most liberating. Music is one of the most influential forces in the world and I'm blessed to be able to share that with others.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: So far, Ive been pretty lucky because producers send me music and simply ask me to come up with something. They hear my music and trust my artistry enough to give me free reign . I love those type of opportunities, but when I do get questions they may be for example " Can you write a song that would suit an artist like Alicia Keys?". Sometimes producers get very specific about what they want if they know that they are pitching the song to a record company for a specific artist.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I don't feel any misconceptions regarding my work. I try and be as honest and straight forward about my artistry as possible. I try to show as many sides of myself as possible so that the listeners understand that I'm not one dimensional.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What type of music are you trying to create? What feelings do you want the listener to feel? Do you have any specifics regarding what you would like the song to be about or what type of voice you hear on the track?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be as specific as possible when describing what you would like.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: ( in no specific order) a radio, bible, row boat ( can I do that? lol), a super warm blanket for night time, a picture of my family.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: For as long as I can remember I have been singing and dancing. Creatives often go through a slew of career options before settling on one. At one point I wanted to do fashion design, but music never left me. One day I realized that's what I wanted to make a living doing.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is classic with new age appeal. I love rnb and classic hip hop, but Im always listening to new music, so you can hear that in my sound.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with Pharrel. I love that he always has fresh ideas, ones that are outside of the box but still familiar enough to pull in pop listeners. His music transcends age and time and I think that's important as a musician. In addition to this, his ear for melody is crazy!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on pop, rnb, soul music, but I love when I get the chance to collaborate with producers who do dance music. I'm also a dancer, so I love music and makes me want to move.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is my voice. I'm a singer first and I think that shows through my writing and performance.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: In terms of sound aesthetic, I love a strong melody, so I typically incorporate lush harmonies. I like to display dichotomies in my music, for instance strength and vulnerability.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I begin by simply listening to the music and taking note of how it makes me feel. Then I proceed to develop a story around that feeling and decide what perspective I'd like to tell that story from. I typically hear a melody before writing the lyrics, so I lay that down then I proceed to write lyrics. Sometimes the words and music just come to me immediately ( I love it when that happens! )
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Some of my influences production wise are The Neptunes, Timbaland, Stargate, Kanye West, Quincy Jones, and Stevie Wonder. My writing/musical style is influenced by singers with huge voices like Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé... to name a few.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I write lyrics, vocal produce and record songs to music tracks that I receive from clients.
