Sinatra and Buble' are my sound. I'm a Berklee Grad who's worked with multiple Grammy and Oscar winning composers. You can hear my voice on Netflix, Disney, MTV, BBC Radio 1, and dozens of ad campaigns worldwide.

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.

This was my first project with Andrew, but I won't be my last! His voice is not only beautiful, but Andrew also has breadth of range and flexibility to adapt to different genres. For example, I hired him originally because I was looking for a crooner, and we're still working on that song, but I also hired him for a classical song we adapted to have a classical pop feel. He was communicative throughout the project, professional, easy to work with, and his deliverables were great. Thanks, Andrew!
A superb vocal performance from an extremely talented musician.
Very professional and musical. Works to give you what you want.
Hoping this is the first of many projects with Andrew, can't say enough about his creativity, his incredible vocal tone, versatility and his skills! Working with artists like him is the dream.
Andrew is a powerhouse of a vocalist! I got chills the first time I heard him singing and I'm honored to have him performing on a project. A class act all the way through.
This was a challenging acoustic project, which was delivered with the usual skill, positivity and attention to detail.
Another impressive performance showcasing a range of skills
Another amazing job. Thank you!
As ever, a superb, creative performance and perfect communication throughout.
Andrew is a consummate professional with excellent communication and listening skills and an amazing voice. I highly recommend Andrew for your next job.
Just completed my second project with Andrew! And, once again, he knocked it out of the park! The man's a pro any way you measure one: his talent, his instrument, his ability to take direction and his quick turnaround. Plus, he's a pleasure to deal with -- a dream collaborator! Creating should always be this easy!
Andrew knocked it outta the park! I was looking for a big band/Buble/Connick performance and he didn't disappoint. And, as if that's not enough, he was a pleasure to work with: personable, took direction well, delivered on time... I just can't say enough about me experience with Andrew. He's a total pro!
As ever, wonderful voice and musicality and excellent communication throughout. Thank you!
I hired Andrew for a Jazz crooner track. The entire process was enjoyable and the result blew me away. He got the brief immediately and was communicative throughout. Although there are definite tones of Sinatra and Buble in the mix, it is a unique performance that sounds like a classic. I'm already thinking about the next song I can write so I can hire him again!
I always ask singers to give me their best and I hope that they give me close to 100%... Andrew has done a few songs for me and he consistently goes above and beyond - 110%! I am always sooo please with his vocal performances.
Andy.. what can I say . Brilliant as always. Total pro.
Andrew is like working with a world class singer... because... he is one!!! Happy to live in a world 🌎 where we are lucky enough to work with someone of his caliber! Ticks every box and more. Will also add ideas you didn't know you needed and add that 6th star to your project. Beyond 5 star 🌟! He's great!
Another wonderful performance
First time working with Andrew; what a treat. Pitch perfect, excellent timing, great voice. He made my tune come alive beyond what I could have ever imagined. Thank you Andrew!
World class vocals and makes it seem so easy. Fantastic
Interview with Andrew DeLong
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
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.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
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.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
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.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
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.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
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.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to work from home doing a job that I love. Life can't get any better.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
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.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
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.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What type of sound are you looking for? What singers voice closely resembles the sound you want?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
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.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Telefunken U47, UA1176, LA2A, Lynx Aurora, iMac Pro.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
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.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Smooth and buttery.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: It would be cool to get a rat pack thing going with Michael Buble.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Take it easy on the EQ and Compression. A little goes a long way.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
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.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Definitely my vocals...however, my recording engineer skills are pretty decent too.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
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.
Q: What's your typical work process?
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.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
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.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
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.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually record session vocals, including lead, harmonies, and background vocals.
