    It was great working with Lena, her vocal production of my raw stems came out better than I could have asked for! She was easy to communicate with and quickly made a few revisions to get the right sound I was looking for. Will work with her again in the future!

    Leena was fantastic! Clear with her personal deadlines and came through right on time. Vocals sound extremely clear, FX were stellar and used perfectly to fit the track.

    Such a nice & talented lady, a true professional who kept me up-to-date and who was very transparent about her work & timing. Not a single false promise with me, only great results, fast returns and met expectancies. I'm over the moon to have found someone who is so approachable yet so proficient at what she does. Would work again with her any day!

    Lena took my vocals from pretty good to well past my expectations. I sent her notes for how I wanted the mix to sound and she delivered the raw acoustic sound I was looking for while still doing some much needed pitch correction and editing. If you're looking for someone to mix your vocals she's a perfect candidate. She's a singer herself and has great pitch so I didn't really need to give much instruction. She was also incredibly patient and kept making revisions until I was very happy with it.

  27. Review by Gabrielle Taryn
    starstarstarstarstar

    No one compares to the true talent that Lena has. She is a perfectionist in the best way. She refuses to give you a final product that is anything less than the absolute best. Lena always inspires my best vocal performance and her mixing and producing skills are incredible. She has even "fixed" the work of other engineers I have worked with when I'm unhappy. Hire Lena, you won't be sorry!

    Lena has an incredible ear for music, especially pop. I know first hand she's encouraging as a vocal producer, meticulous as an engineer, and committed to artistry and authenticity in every song she is a part of. She's extremely professional, open minded and easy to work with. She won't let you walk away with anything but the best and you'll be proud of the new heights she takes you to!

    Lena works WONDERS with vocals. She is so quick and efficient, and always delivers a quality mix. She’s also a genius with comping/tuning and makes every performance sound effortless and natural. Her harmony/background vocal arrangements are also amazing! 100% would recommend.

    Working with Lena is a dream! I've worked with her several times and it's been amazing. She took our ideas, came up with concepts and helped us refine the sound we wanted to create. Then she created hooks, provide amazing real-time feedback in the studio, and edited everything together in post to create tracks that we were proud to put out into the world. Highly recommended!

Interview with Lena Leon

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

  2. A: Vocal Mixing, Vocal Editing (Comping and Tuning), Vocal Background and Harmony Arrangement

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

  4. A: Everyone who makes music does (it takes courage) but I'm a particular fan of Max Martin and everything that he and his team have worked on!

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I'm an in-the-box mixer, which means it's a home studio setup, but I can get the quality as good as some of the top studios out there!

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

  8. A: I discuss with the client what they're looking for, then spend tedious hours editing and making sure everything is perfect.

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

  10. A: Too many people don't care about the vocal mix, and it's SUCH an important part of the process! The vocalist wants to feel like a star, and I think that's why people want to work with me! I can make the vocals sound record-label ready.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Vocal mixing and production.

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

  14. A: Pop, EDM, Folk, Funk, R&B. I've really done it all!

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: Clean and radio ready!

  17. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  18. A: I've definitely had a bumpy road in the business. I've been doing vocal mixing for 15 years, and it's tough for a female to prove their worth in a male dominated world, but I'm glad I didn't have it easy. Forced me to work my tail off to prove my worth! ;)

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: We can only fix so much in post. Make sure the vocals sound as good as they possibly can before you hand them to a mixer! Any hum, or hiss or background noise is really tough to remove!

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

  22. A: What is your end goal with your vocal mix? Is there any artist or song you'd like your mix to sound like?

  23. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  24. A: It makes me so happy when people say "thank you for caring about the vocals, so many people don't!" It's always been super important to me, and I'm glad when my clients leave feeling like a rockstar!

  25. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  26. A: Both! But you can do so much in the mixing process digitally these days!
