Latin pop/reggaeton music is on the rise everywhere and I would love to add that latin calor, sabor to your song.
Hola! I am Tanya Nielsen, latin pop singer/songwriter and music producer from Montreal. I have over 15 years experience writing and producing music.
My vocals styles are mainly mainstream pop, latin pop, pop rock and jazz.
My reel contains seven pop songs varying in the styles of Reggaeton, synth pop, rock and jazz. Check the sound cloud link for more styles.
I sang, wrote, produced all songs in medley except for the first.
Of Chilean descent being fluent in both Spanish and English, singing and making and writing music has always been my passion from as long as I can remember.
I strive for professional industry standard sounding songs. My goal is to help create catchy melodies and add that sweet youthful voice to your track.
