Vocals & Arrangements

Long on SoundBetter

I can take what you have and take it to the next level

I studied Music Arrangement and Composition in college with Dr. Aubrey Tucker and voice with Lucy Hargis. That formal university training taught me how to sing traditional Italian arias, as well as songs in Spanish, French, and German, in addition to my native English. I now prefer to sing in a contemporary style but that formal training taught me to pay attention to proper vocal technique, pronunciation, and the emotion behind each lyric.

I am just starting out on soundbetter.com. I will only take on a client if I am sure I can do a good job for them. Talk to me about your project.

If you create basic demos or content for web, I can take work with what you have and take it to the next level through vocal tuning, arranging, and mixing/mastering.

1. Vocal Demos
Baritone / Tenor vocals. My teacher actually referred to me as a baritenor - this is not a joke. I have an in between voice type with a light and bright voice quality. Vocal range D2 - A4

2. Song / Cover Song Arrangements
I can produce a backing track for a song, or, help arrange your existing song into a complete production

3. Mixing and Mastering:
Melodyne tuning for your vocals
Humanizing midi elements
Check your use of eq, reverb, and compression
Mix your track properly to -6b db with instruments in a logical balance

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.
