I'm Heather Mae, a multi-module singer that specializes in high mix belt and being a vocal chameleon.

Vocal range specs:
Chest (bottom): B3
Mix belt (top): G5
Head voice (top): G6

Studied Musical Theater in NYC, trained w/ Ron Browning (Winona Judd, Patti Labelle, Carrie Underwood) in Nashville, and currently perform and record nationally. I am best known for being a multi-module singer that is able to provide a wide variety of timbres. Whether a producer is seeking a rich, smokey tone to highlight low end for BGVs or a brassy, high timbre to compliment an uptempo pop demo - I can provide. Due to my training experience - starting at age 10 in classical, transferring to musical theater in college, and then pop/contemporary - I continually push myself to be a vocal chameleon that can bounce from singing on a Brazilian easy listening tune to a high velocity pop anthem.

Let's be real. Here is why we should work together: I specialize in writing and performing original and creative, top line vocal melodies and BGVs, as well as, vocal fills and malismas. I take notes incredibly well, modify quickly, and get the job done fast. I'm also a huge fan of fart jokes and I have the tendency to send smileys with my messages. All good things.

Interview with Heather Mae

Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
December 2015, I started a Kickstarter to raise funds for my upcoming record, titled "I AM ENOUGH". I reached my goal and exceeded it by $3K. This was one of the proudest moments of my career.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I work quickly, efficiently, and I never send a vocal I am not completely 100% behind.
What do you like most about your job?
The freedom to work from home, travel and tour whenever I'd like, work with musicians and writers from all over the world, and - most importantly - do what I love and I'm most passionate about in this world.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Singers are musicians too. Never underestimate us.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I've been singing since The Little Mermaid. I began training when I was 13. I've been doing session vocals professionally for just under 10 years.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
QuestLove and The Roots - hair envy and amazing musicians.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Although I love singing a range of different styles (jazz, country, blues), I am most often working on something in the pop genre. Whether classic pop contemporary, EDM, or indie - thats usually the style of work that I'm approached with the most.
What's your strongest skill?
Hands down, my strongest skill when it comes to my voice is my vocal flexibility (range and tone).
What do you bring to a song?
A healthy high mix belt and the ability to manipulate my voice to give the producer/engineer/writer whatever sound they are seeking. I think I might have done things backwards than most singers my age. Growing up, my parents raised me on The Beatles, Elton John, Janis Joplin, to name a few. In my college years, I grew to love jazz and the blues while also studying musical theater. It wasn't until later that I really began singing pop music - which was when I really learned how to use my voice. When I approach a song, I really come at it from a place of "what kind of voice does this song need?" and, because of my history of learning and singing different styles of music, I'm able to achieve what most singers aren't capable of...being a vocal chameleon.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
The classics who started it all: Etta James, Billie Holiday, and Ella Fitzgerald Modern voices w/ a healthy pop mix-belt: Sara Bareilles, Jessie J, and Tori Kelly My favorite character voices: Regina Spektor, Florence & The Machine, Mary Lambert
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I do a range of recording and writing but the most common request is top line vocals with doubles and BGVs. Which just happens to be my favorite part of being a session vocalist!
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Sarah Clanton - smokey tone and badass cello skills.
Can you share one music production tip?
