  1. Review by Matt P.

    Carolan really is a true professional. She took a song I gave her,
    and had it finished in less than two hours.
    She is both friendly and a good listener.
    I couldn't of asked for a better performance of my song that day , then what I received from Carolan.
    She put energy into a production that today shines brighter.
    Thank you, Carolan.
    I hope to work with you again one day.

    I have worked with Carolan a number of times and I will again (and again). I've hired her to sing vocals, and also co-written with her. Carolan is up for anything. She is so easy to work with and sings so many different genres effortlessly. She has a free spirit and an open mind. Her abilities to follow direction are top notch - and when the time comes for her to add some ideas - they are always fresh and unique. Carolan is a true collaborative partner. She also happens to be one of those people who makes you feel better - an, "under promise and over produce" creative soul.

  3. Review by KimMarie Krenik

    I fell in love with this artist's voice the first time I heard her. Since then, I have worked with her on several projects. She is a worker bee, she brings character and life into a song. She is a versatile vocalist, with the taste to know when to stand out and when to blend. She is also a talented songwriter and top-liner.

  4. Review by Colin Robinson

    I’ve worked with Carolan on numerous, diverse projects. She has an incredible range, both singing range and range of genres. She is a powerful singer but can also deliver soft and sensual tracks. She works quickly while still delivering results.

Interview with Carolan Deacon

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

  2. A: Yes! 3 actually. 1-Invest in someone to help you set it all up if you are learning! Life is short and your time is valuable. 2-Collaboration is everything. 3-Map your vocal tracks with color codes, easy to cut, copy and paste.

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

  4. A: pop, rock, Americana, country, folk

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: vocals

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

  8. A: I have been told I bring a very uniquely rich and warm vocal sound to just about any genre of music. I get an unexpected and still familiar melody on my top line jobs and I work fast.

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

  10. A: First, I have a chat with you about what you see or feel for the song and honestly, often they want to just turn it to me and let me run with it and that's cool too. Either way, first we connect by phone or Zoom for about 30 minutes. Then I listen to the track and grab a melody for it intuitively - record vocals sounds only to it and playback to see if it moves me. Then I map out the song structure and write lyric, then lay down vocals for first cut.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: I work from home and have a room dedicated to vocals. I've got a small vocal booth with an Avantone mic to record into Logic ProX.

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

  14. A: everyone I work with inspires me- honestly the musical world gets a bum rap sometimes but I have found that the people I get to create with are honest, talented and kind.

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

  16. A: The most common work I get hired to do right now is to add vocals to an existing track or topline a track.
