    Holly has a world-class voice, and the quality of her recordings and vocal technique are second to none.
    Throughout the project, Holly was adaptable to our ideas, flexible in her approach, and generous with her vocal takes and time spent on them.
    Underpinning all of this is Holly's open, honest and friendly communication which takes you through to completion with ease.
    A true pro, I can't recommend highly enough :)

    It took months for me to find the voice I was imagining in my head. I found Holly and she was everything that I wanted. Exceptional communication and extremely professional. She was open to revisions and gave suggestions the idea to something special. She sent a load of additional phrases and ad libs on top of the main concept to add so much more atmosphere and unique options to make the song more interesting. I highly recommend hiring Holly. I will certainly be working with her again.

    Holly is great at communicating exactly what she can provide and asking what you need. I don't need to say her voice is phenomenal... you already know that. When you come to Soundbetter for an artists, she should be one of the first you look for!

    Holly is simply amazing! I reached out to her after discovering her profile on Soundbetter and listening to her demos. Her voice was exactly what I was looking for a cover I was producing for a TV commercial. She replied fast and was really professional during the entire process. Her voice and delivery on my song were simply amazing, no editing needed and exactly what I was looking for. I can't wait to have the opportunity to work with her again. Thanks Holly :)

    I've worked with Holly on many occasions, both on her own music and as a backing singer for others. She's a phenomenally gifted singer and always a joy to have in the studio. You couldn't choose a nicer or more talented singer.

Interview with Holly Quin Ankrah

  1. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  2. A: James Blake or Frank Ocean, I adore the way they create atmosphere and mood.

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

  4. A: Pop, Soul, House. I get asked to lay vocals down over the top of House tracks alot as my voice is reminiscent of those deep soulful vocals from the 90's

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: My vocals. I have been professionally singing since I was 7 years old. I know how to tackle melody's and style technically and have a extensive knowledge of harmony

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

  8. A: Soul. Realness, Authenticity. I believe every word I sing and en-devour to draw the listener in with my vocals. Lyrically I bring a freshness, something contemporary, I always try to avoid obvious choices so the song has a real edge.

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

  10. A: If I'm toplining I'll play the track and vocie note my immediate melody ideas. I'll then sit down and try to develop the ones that stand out, sometimes ill transfer the process to my piano as I find this is a great way to really hear the song in its simplest form, that way you know whats working and what isnt. Ill then record some guide vocals, and continue to tweak until everything feels right. Then Ill get to work on recording the vocals. I record a lead, doubles and then ill play with which backing vocals and harmonies work best before doing a .ew adlib tracks

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: I have 3 professional microphones, a portable vocal booth, an Apogee Duet and an iMac from which I operate Logic.

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

  14. A: The Musicians I've had the opportunity to work with inspire as I have been able to see first hand the hard work, skill and professionalism they bring in at the highest level. Beverley Knight is a fantastic example, I was blown away by her talent and down-to-earth approach.

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

  16. A: Session Vocals, usually of a strong and soulful style
