Andrew DeLong on SoundBetter

Sinatra and Buble' are my sound. I'm a Berklee Grad who's worked with Grammy nominated and Oscar winning composers. I've had the privilege of singing on Adam Lambert's debut Platinum selling album and was humbled by getting to sing in the same studio as Frank Sinatra at Capitol Records Studio A. I track all of my vocals in my London based studio.

If you're looking for a Buble/Sinatra sound, you've found it. Andrew provides top-level vocals from his London based recording studio. His studio is equipped with multiple microphones including a ribbon mic - for that classic, buttery crooner sound, API preamps, Apogee converters, and hundreds of plug-ins to make sure he delivers the flavors you're looking for.

Andrew has studied vocal performance at Berklee College of Music where he was a recipient of the World Tour Scholarship. He is well versed in all styles and genres of music but has a passion for Jazz. Available for hire to record lead vocals and/or harmonies, as well as vocal tuning and comping, and top line/lyric writing.

$250 is my demo rate. For anything being released (sync, Spotify, etc.) there is an additional buyout fee. Please contact for details.

    Ive been writing songs for close to 50 years. Songs are imo meant to "sing and dance" that is the most important quality a musical piece can achieve.
    With Andy Andrew Delong in the "vocal seat" your songs will be prancing in the air and jumping for joy - and so will you be

    The only reason I would recommend you not hire Andrew - is that I want him free for all my future projects.

    Andrew is the quickest route to Hollywood.

    My song that sounded mediocre suddenly felt like a Broadway hit.
    There is only one thing that matches Andrews experience and talent and that is his attention to detail and his care for your artwork.

    Amazingly - you managed to keep the spirit of the song I wrote while actually giving birth to a new creation entirely!

    Thank you Andrew so much.
    (will be sending another song very soon)

    Andrew did a great job, this time on dialogue for two different characters! He has completed multiple projects with me, and each vocal performance has been outstanding. Andrew has a great deal of range, both spoken and sung, and is a kind and generous person.

    5 star is not high enough to rate this guy. So talented, great human being and seriously cares about putting in a good song. Don't choose anyone else if this is your genre you're looking for. You're basically getting a world class singer here and that's the truth. So good! Enjoy working with him! Takes ideas on, creates new ones, works fast, sings strong, has attention to detail and good taste...no cornyness which can be hard to find also. 5*****

    Another outstanding performance by Andy! He has a beautiful deep voice and a great personality. He is also surprisingly versatile and has now sung as three different characters in my musical.

    Andrew completed my job with very professional vocals and did so in just 48 hours. Couldn't be happier for the price range and quality of work.

    Will look forward to working again, when I have the right song.

Interview with Andrew DeLong

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

  2. A: Customer satisfaction is what I am most focused on. I want you to be happy and I want you to be proud of your project. If I didn't deliver the product you were looking for the first time I will work with you until we nail the exact vibe.

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

  4. A: I sang background vocals for a song on Adam Lambert's Platinum selling album "For Your Entertainment". It was my first "big" LA gig. I was so proud, I felt like all my hard work finally paid off.

  5. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  6. A: I'm working on a session for a corporate commercial. It's more of a film score type of vibe...a little different to what I'm used to but very fun.

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

  8. A: I don't actually know this guy but, while I was searching SoundBetter's Singer Database, a guy named Brandon Ray really impressed me. He's got a soulful country sound that I love. If anyone needs a country singer....check him out.

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: Analog is of course renowned for its warmth/dimension...and NOTHING looks cooler than a full rack of gear... but digital is so convenient and it blows my mind how good it sounds now. I definitely use more digital these days but I still think I prefer the sound of Analog.

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

  12. A: I get to work from home doing a job that I love. Life can't get any better.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Do you sing other styles other than Jazz? Why yes, I do. I'm actually a very accomplished pop/soul singer. I sing pretty much every style....I can even yodel.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: People outside of our industry often don't realize the amount of time, work, and education it takes to do what we do. I think the misconception can be that we do this for fun...which we do, but we are also trying to make this our livelihood.

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

  18. A: What type of sound are you looking for? What singers voice closely resembles the sound you want?

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

  20. A: Have a clear idea what type of sound you're looking for and even have a reference track on hand. This would help us so much in understanding your vision.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: Telefunken U47, UA1176, LA2A, Lynx Aurora, iMac Pro.

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

  24. A: Since graduating from Berklee College of Music in 2008 I've lived in Boston, LA, and London. I've done just about every job there is pertaining to music...and I also served at my fair share of restaurants. All of my experience has lead me here and I am so happy to be making music my full time profession.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: Smooth and buttery.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: It would be cool to get a rat pack thing going with Michael Buble.

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Take it easy on the EQ and Compression. A little goes a long way.

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

  32. A: The Crooner style of Jazz is definitely my bread and butter, but I am very good at pretty much all genres especially soul and pop.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: Definitely my vocals...however, my recording engineer skills are pretty decent too.

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

  36. A: I've worked hard to master the subtle nuances of Jazz singing. From the stylistic vibrato to the laid back phrasing. I've studied all greats (Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, etc.) and what it is that makes their voices so special. I am able to bring their styles and expertise to your projects.

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

  38. A: I usually ask the client if they have a reference track for a sound that they are trying to achieve. Then, I do my homework and study the track. I'll then pick the right mic, and record a few takes. After I'm done recording, l comp all my vocals to create the best lead line and edit whatever needs editing.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I own a professional recording studio right outside of London. I own multiple mics including Neumann, Telefunken, and Rode. I run my mics through an API 3124+ which gets converted by Apogee converters. My room is professionally treated with primeacoustics so it sounds great.

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

  42. A: I'm inspired by musicians who wear all-the-hats in the production process. It's one thing to just be a singer, it's more inspiring to me when someone can also play an instrument, record quality recordings, produce their own backgrounds, write their own songs, and be able to switch seamlessly between genres. That to me is the sign of a true musician.

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

  44. A: I usually record session vocals, including lead, harmonies, and background vocals.
