Leo Forest on SoundBetter

INTRODUCTORY PRICE, male vocalist in the style of LAUV, SHAWN MENDES. Trained for many years under Don Lawrence, vocal coach to Lady Gaga, Bono, Cristina Aguilera, Camila Cabello, Bonnie McKee and many more.

Hi there! My name is Leo Forest, and I am singer/songwriter/producer. I have a commercially friendly voice that is comparable to Shawn Mendes, Lauv, or Troye Sivan in tone and timber. I trained for years under Don Lawrence, the foremost vocal coach on the east coast.

Being a multi-gold selling songwriter, I know how much love you've put into your writing. That love is in the details, and I carefully learn your song to represent your melody accurately, make sure your lyrics are clear and sung with passion. Most importantly, I'm here to help you tell your story.

I have professional equipment in my home and deliver to you dry, tuned and aligned stems and a reference mix.

I am also extremely skilled and fast at tuning and aligning vocals. I use tools like Melodyne 5, Auto-Tune, Vocalign, VariAudio (in Cubase), and can make tuning strong and fast or natural and transparent. Tuning and alignment prices are flexible with you and your production; for example, harmonies that are only in a few spots would not incur the same charge as a lead vocal that goes on through the entire song.

This is a special INTRODUCTORY RATE for SoundBetter and will not last!

I do rarely take on production and writing services from SoundBetter. I am most likely to accept opportunities to work on/feature on your artist project, or paid work. I generally do not write for pitch.

Interview with Leo Forest

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I worked on Sylwia Lipka's first two albums, including penning her debut single which went #1 on youth pop radio. "Sorry" by Justin Bieber was #2! I may never chart higher than Justin again in my life and that was a very surreal moment.

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

  4. A: If you're looking for female vocals, Jaki Nelson is not only insanely talented, we have built an amazing friendship working together.

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

  6. A: I'm here to help you tell your story. Maybe that story is penning and pitching the song that changes everything for you.

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

  8. A: I've been writing and taking vocal lessons since I was twelve, and started getting my first songwriting cuts at 19. Those first couple songs peaked at #1 and #4 on Youth Pop Radio in their market, and the rest is history.

  9. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  10. A: I record my vocals with an Shure SM7B, the "Michael Jackson" microphone, into an industry standard Universal Audio interface.
