Powerhouse vocalist with strong pop sensibilities in her toplining.
"With a voice compared to the likes of P!nk and Kelly Clarkson, Aimee is sure to give your track strength and power when needed, but also has the vocal control to make things more intimate and vulnerable."

Aimee was a dream to work with. First off, she offered to do a quick vs chorus just so we could "see" if she was a good fit. I mean who does that? She went over and above to make sure we were happy with the project and delivered spectacularly. Would def use her again given the opportunity, she has both pipes and people skills!
Working with Aimee was a great experience. She has a wonderful voice, and gave me a lot to choose from. Her vocals added a lot to the song. I highly recommend her.
I have had the great pleasure of working with FoxHausMusic! Aimee is a powerhouse of a singer with great tone and killer chops. She can quickly deliver an excellent, professional-sounding track that fits the mood of your song, is heartfelt and in tune. She also has a great sense of humor and is a gem to work with!
Aimee is an incredibly songwriter and vocalist! She also is a sweet soul despite how rockstar she is! Working with her, the goal is met seamlessly and it is fun the whole time!
I’ve worked with Aimee on a few music projects and really connected in the songwriting process. She’s super fun to work with and knows her stuff both in songwriting/arrangement and producing. I highly recommend working with her on your next project.
Aimee's voice makes any song come alive! Aimee and I have written and produced a handful of songs together. Each song has a different vibe and Aimee nails it...a soft thoughtful song about home, a funky driving swagger rock song, an upbeat pop song and a retro Price vibe song. We've got sync rep deals too.
Aimee tracks her vocals at home and gets them done on time. She is easy to work with and at the same time knows what she's doing.
As a topliner, she can hear the perfect way to go and make it happen...now!
Don't wait, because Aimee isn't wait'n. Get her while you can.
Interview with Aimee Francis - FoxHausMusic
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: The first track that I self-produced, played on, mixed, and released - being able to do everything myself for the first time after spending years relying on other people was a really special moment.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: The sync tracks don't stop, writing for briefs and other artists doesn't stop, either!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I am surrounded by some amazing musicians/engineers/producers on this site. It's such an incredible time these days where you can have these people featured on your track in one way or another!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital for the speed factor. I love that I can do everything in my DAW (digital audio workstation - which is Logic for me) Analog is super special, though, and has its place.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Quality. I am happy to do revisions on things if you weren't happy with maybe a pronunciation etc. A reason why I take a percentage of the master is so that I can pitch things, too. The teamwork continues after the track is finished.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to work on so many different projects with people all around the world. 'Work' is doing my favourite thing!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: - How much do you charge? I'll ask them what exactly they're after, what timeframe they're wanting it done and if they're happy with my master percentage. After that I am happy to negotiate different things (i.e less percentage, more money or vice versa)
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Because I run a studio from home that the quality isn't going to be top notch... thankyou SoundBetter for helping pave the way to get rid of that misconception!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: - When do you need this by? - Lead vocals/harmonies/both? - Demo track and/or Reference tracks/artists?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Know what you want - reference tracks/artists really get the ball rolling. If hiring me as a writer/topliner - if there's a story/baseline, make sure to include that. If you have any demos, that'd be great, too.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My phone (voice memo's are my lifesaver for random ideas in the middle of nowhere), MacBook Pro, Apollo Twin, mic, guitar. I'm totally making sure that desert island has power...somewhere... somehow...
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I finished school at 16 and got picked up by management, moved from Melbourne, Australia to LA and had the typical 'LA Story' and was burnt by my manager. Have been self managed since then, and have been playing music full time for about 11 years in bars/clubs/weddings. Production has always been a passion but really started honing my craft when lockdown hit and all my gigs were gone.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Edgy Pop/Rock
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Steven Tyler is my singing heroooooooo. His vocals have got better with age - so much emotion. Butch Walker and Linda Perry have always been production heroes for me - they seem to capture raw emotion really well and keep it in a track whilst it still sounding super lush and produced!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: You probably don't need that extra plugin.... definitely speaking from experience! Haha. Learn to use your tools your way!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Rock, Pop, Swagger
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I feel like my musicality is my strongest trait - harmonies come naturally and I can definitely get a good idea for what a client is after with the use of reference tracks. I have alot of 'pop sensibilities' in my writing - may or may not have to thank Max Martin and all those boyband hits from the 90s on repeat....
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I have naturally strong and rounded vocals - I can try and emulate the more airy vibe, but my go-to tracks are some with some grunt and grit.. I can give your track attitude!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: After receiving the track and any guide vocals they have I will sing a verse and chorus to make sure the client is happy with my 'vibe' - I then confirm what they're after exactly in terms of number of tracks/harmonies etc. I'll lay down my vocal tracks, comp them and shoot them back. Once they have finished the track, they will send it back to me and I'll add it to my sync catalogue for me to pitch, too.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: The Slate ML-1 microphone is my go-to mic (which emulates SO many classic microphones) as well as the Shure SM7B. I run it through my Universal Audio Apollo Twin and my DAW of choice is Logic where I have many of your studio-standard state of the art plugins (Melodyne 5, Antares Auto-Tune Pro, Fabfilter, Soundtoys etc)
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: With the pandemic and no live shows, I have really been getting into online tutorials and producers that primarily work from their home studios. PLAB's Kris Bradley and Ear Witness Studio's Samuel Knaak have been big mentors aswell as KARRA, Austin Hull and many more producers making a name for themselves thanks to YouTube.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Vocals for sync projects seem to be my main income at the moment - alot of swagger/rock/pop tracks. Also DJs wanting edgier vocals for EDM tracks, which has been fun.
