I work from my home studio and have hundreds of co-writes and sessions behind my back along with years of experience performing live and recording in multiple studios across the world. I specialize in songwriting and demo-singing. I was the writer, topliner and demosinger for Dimash Kudaibergen's single "Lay Down", #1 in China and Platinum. .
My name is Otto Palmborg, I come from Finland and I work as a professional singer, writer, topliner, musician and lyricist.
I have nearly 10 years of experience in the industry and I regularly play live in different bands in Finland and work as a songwriter/topliner online.
I've written for both the Asian market (mainly K-pop) and for the Western market and have scored a few releases in Korea and China as well. I am a very diverse singer with my roots in the pop genre, but it's my lifelong side project to master singing and to learn all kinds of music genres that interest me.

Fantastic to work with! Super nice and cooperative from the start to finish.

Otto is an amazing vocalist and very pleasant to work with. He's dedicated to make your vocal the best possible. Not only has he a beautiful voice, he's also very skillful and knows what you want. He always responds in a timely fashion. I would love to work with him again in the future!
Amazing voice, very easy to work with, and just a very humble great guy!
If every topliner was like Otto there would be less lonely instrumentals out there. Otto has a gift when it comes to writing, he writes in the theme given like it's air through his lungs. He also doesn't get offended when you want something else, which one would not consider a skill. But when you have been working with topliners over some years, you know that this is something which doesn't go by unappreciated.
What a voice!!
Perhaps the most outstanding part about Otto was how he never took any feedback personally.
We had a very clear vision in mind and he worked relentlessly to deliver vocal takes just the way we had in our heads, whilst putting his own artistic spin on them.
Very prompt and an absolute pleasure to work with, thanks Otto!
very talented and patient

Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Once we've started.. Please try to explain *exactly* what you want. Don't be shy, just grab a mic and sing the topline if you want! That really helps. A voice memo is way more effective than written words.

A: My head is constantly full of ideas and I think that's an important skill in this business. I also never take feedback personally.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring vocals and melodies that *really* stand out from all the thousands of songs that are made everyday.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Here's my list of requirements for a job: - Instrumental version of the track - Rough mix of the track - BPM - Key - If it's a topline that is not sung but played by an instrument, preferably a version with JUST the topline, nothing else
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
