Singer of Internationally-Acclaimed Melodic Rock Band OUTLOUD, also Punky Meadows (Angel) and Michael Denner (Mercyful Fate). Session (Lead) Singer on Over 25 Albums. Dynamic PRO!
I am like very few other rock singers out there and I'll tell you why: I sing for the SONG no matter what and have a wide variety of styles and colors besides Rock to pull from, thus keeping the vocal fresh and interesting at all times. Very integrated and soulful approach for the song when needed. I'm excited to take your song to the next level!!!
I am a PROFESSIONAL ROCK VOCALIST and I work primarily as a session singer, having performed on over 400 songs and on over 25 albums. I have achieved international recognition as a singer with my rock band OUTLOUD, releasing 4 albums and touring in Europe, appearing on national TV in Greece and also on the cover of Metal Hammer magazine twice, the country's largest rock publication. I also perform with Punky Meadows (the guitar player from the popular 70's rock band ANGEL), of which our album "Fallen Angel" came in on Billboard at #6 on the New Artist chart and #136 on the Top 200 in 2016.
Additionally, I have been named Best Unsigned Artist in Starcentral Magazine (an Australian publication) and featured on the home page of popular music-based social media site ReverbNation. My work with NJ-based group Iron Bridge Band received two Grammy considerations for Best Rock Album in 2013 and one also in 2016.
I am getting ready to release a new album with Michael Denner (guitar player from Mercyful Fate) in November 2019.

Chandler is amazing. Period!
Great experience working with Chandler. He was responsive with communication, asked the important questions, delivered more than I expected, with a fast turnaround time. His vocals were top-notch, of course.
Asked him to cover Journey - Separate Ways (Worlds Apart) with a thight deadline he managed to get really close to the original! Would love to work with him again soon
Great voice!!! He is also one of a kind singer! I think. I would like to work with him from now now!!!!
Chandler rocks! He's got an amazing voice and very helpful to work with. Highly recommended!!
Fast! Sensible! To the point! Chandler Mogel is a great asset to your recordings. His sense of writing and his vocal range is sure to add value to your tracks! I loved working with him!
Awesome stuff. Appreciate the hard work. Thanks
Always a pleasure having Chandler involved in my songs. He is very upbeat and enthusiastic and delivers the goods. By far one of the top vocalists I have encountered and worked with. He is easy to communicate with and is attentive to details. Looking forward to working with him in the future.
Chandler has a really great voice, and recorded a great vocal for me as well. It included multiple harmony parts and he did such a great job nailing all of those parts! I would highly recommend Chandler!!
An unbelievably incredible vocalist and musician! He understood my vision for the recording, and added his own. Just blown away! Want to work with him again! He does with his arrangements and vocals what I did with my fingers on the guitar!
Strong vocals from Chandler and I was very happy with the awesome harmonies he created. Really know what he's doing. Suddenly my basic mix got a new and melodic vibe.
I've worked with Chandler on two projects now and both have turned out extremely well! It really feels like he cares about the songs and has injected emotion and colour in just the right amounts. Highly recommended!
Another stunning performance from Mr. Chandler Mogel! Look, i recorded an album with this singer 2 years ago n since then Mr. Mogel has been the only english speaking musician i would work with. The guy is amazing, a pure star and with his kind of voice in the 70-80ies he would be making a fortune and hitting the top of the charts. I highly recommend him if you need not just a top singer but a Chuck Norris of vocal! Such an awesome singer!
Humble, fast, nice quality, great performance.

Chandler is an excellent vocalist! He delivered very professional, great sounding vocals with a very quick turn around time. He is very easy to work with and was able to add some great style and creativity to the song. I look forward to working with him again in the future.
Chandler is a total pro! Quality tracks delivered on time, with tons of backup vocals and as advertised. Looking forward to working with him again.
It is an honor and a privilege to work with Chandler Mogel. Great communication and impeccable work ethic. Amazing voice! He nails it every time!
This was my first time collab with Chandler. He is truly professional in terms of collaboration and delivery. He has a great Rock n Roll voice.

Chandler is a fantastic singer, a total professional, and has all the talent, integrity and positive attitude you'll ever need! He bent over backwards to make sure I got what everything I needed for my project. You just can't go wrong if you need a great rock singer, hire him!
Chandler is just superb. I can't say enough good things about his great tone and pitch, his enthusiastic attention to the song. He delivers great takes and on time. He is great in the communication dept. as well. Thanks again, Chandler for the strong work!
Interview with CHANDLER MOGEL
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: If you like hard rock or heavy metal, please check out a record I did with my good friend, guitarist Stephen Dadaian, and engineer Ethan Bill (who is my engineer on all clients' tracks through here). The band name is PAREIDOLIA and the album is called 'Denied Truths'. I wrote lyrics and melodies and performed all vocals. This is a great representation of me as a singer and the mix and production is nothing short of awesome IMO !
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on a full album project for a heavy metal guitar player in Denmark. It sounds HUGE!!!!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Tommy Kessler for guitar, Boris Ivanov for keyboard & Ethan Bill for music production.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Oooh analog for the warmth for sure. My engineer uses a combination of analog and digital, so clients still get the warmth of analog in the vocal tracks, as they are run through a board. The digital side is mostly for convenience. Most analog users use a mix of analog and digital these days.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is that I will perform vocals on my client's song(s) to the best of my ability, giving 110% always. Unfortunately I can never promise that they will love it, as music is very subjective - but I hope they will listen to the songs on my profile ahead of time and determine if I'm a good fit for their project.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That it's what I love to do. I'll accept nothing less. I'm driven by the urge to sing, create, and basically make something that will exist forever.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Everything they need to know is posted here and on my profile, but sometimes they will ask technical questions, about file delivery, etc. FYI - final stems (dry files) for mixing are normally delivered after the payment is released, for obvious reasons. A reference mix is provided beforehand so the client can hear what has been done and thus approve.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Hmmm, probably that guys can't sing high ! A lot of songs I do where the melody is already written, it will be in a lower key than it should, or even in the key that was comfortable for the writer (big mistake). I can sing relatively in any male key so I would advise the client to check out my sample tracks and listen to my range before coming up with the melody - although many times, the melody is already written when they come to me. It's all fine and I will sing whatever they like, but many times I feel a song could benefit more being written in a key that's best for the singer.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask them what their budget and time frame for the project are, I also ask what kind of style they are looking for in the vocal, and if they have any bits of guidance that they want to give me before I start the project. This is important as something could be missed and it could come up after the fact. I always make sure to communicate as much as possible with the client.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be sure that it's me you want for your song before you hire me. Don't ask me to do free demos. You should be able to tell if I'm a good fit for your music by listening to my samples. I can always provide more if you want.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Well I'm not a gear head, that's my engineer lol. But I would take CDs lol . Which ones? That would be super tough . It would take me a year to decide !
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: This is it ! I'm a full time professional singer for over 10 years now. Nothing else I would rather do. I do a lot of studio work on Soundbetter and elsewhere, and I also perform at many live gigs in the NYC area and all over the world year round.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: As I mentioned earlier, I'm a rock singer by trade - from the "purist" school of rock singers lol - very melodic and clean , but still rock. Can add some rasp when needed, but don't have natural rasp. I can sing in pretty much whatever key you need. Everything I sing is in full (chest) voice, and falsetto is used only for color - never for a cop out :)
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: That's a good question - probably Deep Purple - I would love to front them and get them back to their hey day :) They have always been one of my favorite bands!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always make sure you get good clean takes. Get the best possible performance you can for every part of the song. Make sure that you (or your engineer) are well versed in the DAW you are using and also PRODUCE the singer, don't just let him do his own thing and "fix everything later". Don't just hit the space bar. Run the session. You as the engineer have a responsibility to do that if there is not another party producing the track (as these days, there usually isn't).
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Well I'm usually doing rock, but can perform all styles well. I've done a wide variety of things, even children's songs! Clients should feel totally comfortable in my versatility.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Singing is definitely it :) I also like to pride myself in customer service, as I am very good at communication and with people. This can apply to any job, especially jobs like these. It's all about what the client wants and needs.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I sing for the SONG no matter what and have a wide variety of styles and colors besides Rock to pull from, thus keeping the vocal fresh and interesting at all times. I bring a very integrated and soulful approach for the song when needed.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Like I mentioned above, I work with a pro engineer out of a pro studio. We go over and over the song until we get the best possible takes for pitch, time, tone, and delivery. Then the client is sent a vocal reference mix mp3 for approval. If they like it , then they are sent the stems (dry files) of the vocals. Minor revisions are allowed but limited and 9 times out of 10, not needed. I also can provide the client with 3 takes of each part , in lieu of one take and reference mix, if they prefer.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work with a professional engineer (one of the best in the business) to get the best possible takes / tracks for my client. This is what the basic set up is : DAW: Pro Tools 10 HD / Mac Pro / Digidesign 192 i/o / Vocal Mic: Shure SM7b So clients actually get two sets of professional ears on their music when they hire me :)
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm inspired by a lot of 70's hard rock singers - such as Glenn Hughes, David Coverdale, Joe Lynn Turner, etc. I really love the funk and soul bands of the 70's as well, even though I'm a rock singer by trade - I'm very influenced by stuff like Tower of Power, Hall & Oates, Stevie Wonder, etc.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Well, the most common job I guess are when someone has a track with lyrics and melody already written and they just want me to put vocals to it. But sometimes they want me to write the lyrics and melody, or sometimes they have lyrics and just want the melody, so I perform that service as well.
