Laura Greaves on SoundBetter

British Singer-Songwriter. Specialising in stand-out vocals and moving lyrics. Multi-genre songwriter; experienced in top-lines for EDM tracks, lyrics and vocals for TV and adverts (ITV, NBC and Apple TV) along with insightful lyrics written for every kind of artist. I'd love to help you create something special.

I am a versatile multi-genre songwriter, who has been writing for other musicians and myself for the past 5 years. I have written songs for every type of genre, ranging from pop all the way to country and lullabies through to heavy metal and even hip-hop/rap.

My vocals are gentle yet powerful and in the past they have been described as "haunting", this is the kind of session work you can expect from me as a singer.

I was featured on Flux Pavilion's Earwax Compilation and have experience with Film and TV placements for my own music. Recently one of my tracks, 'Somewhere', was placed on the Kayak Advert on ITV and my cover of 'Ruby Tuesday' was also used on Apple TV's Season 2 advert for 'See'.

All features will be under a pseudonym or anonymous, thats up to you! Outside of my session and songwriting work I focus on my own artistry, under my own name so that there isn't a confusion I prefer to keep these separate.

But honestly, this is my passion in life. I'm never happier than working on a new track, therefore I'd love to hear from you and start a new project together!

    Laura is exceptional. She delivered a first rate performance, beautifully recorded, and completed the project within the short window we had to produce the record. The project demanded a high degree of flexibility, and Laura went above and beyond all expectations. She was affable and prompt in her communication, and a total pleasure to work with. We look forward to working with her again on future projects!

    Having collaborated with Laura for years on various projects I can absolutely say she is without doubt one of the most talented, professional and creative top liners and vocalists I’ve ever worked with. Not only is her wonderfully emotive, versatile vocal style TO DIE FOR, but she also possesses next level lyrical and melody comp skills and is an all round pleasure to work with, whatever the project.

    Laura is my go to singer songwriter and teacher.. She's has completed 4 original songs for me in the past year. She has the ability to internalize my thoughts and needs and come out with some great song writing within days... The most amazing part is...her ability to use her beautiful voice to provide me with demos that teaches and guides me to sing the song within rythm...

    Over 1 millions streams on our song "Fragile" on Circus Records speaks for itself. Laura has a dynamic vocal range, writes creatively and is able to deliver a stellar vocal performance over heavy music or more sparse arrangements. With years of industry experience, Laura is a go-to partner when making a record!

Interview with Laura Greaves

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: My track 'Psychopath' is probably my proudest creation to date, as it felt like its own thing completely. I love the lyrics and the style so much, which as a perfectionist this doesn't happen too often for me.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I'm currently working on a new EP and figuring out my own sound. I've just released a few dark pop tracks but I think I want to move forward and lighten up abit haha!

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: I promise that I won't give up on your track. I will work on it until everyone is happy- I hate to not finish a project!

  7. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  8. A: I love the variety! One of my favourite things in the world is to write to brief, and in the past I've been hired for tracks relating to home, Christmas, travelling and more! This gives me such a sense of pride when I've nailed the brief and the client is happy!

  9. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  10. A: They usually ask me if my name can be on their work! I would love to say yes to everyone however I have to be careful with my own name as that is also my artist name, and the work I do outside of that can range wildly! I hope everyone understands that its not because I don't like your track specifically but its just that I cant have my name on pop, metal, rock, nursery rhymes, country etc as then it would really confuse my own audience haha!

  11. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  12. A: That I must love to perform? Hahah I'm quite introverted and have only done a handful of gigs in my career however I love to write and record. I think this comes across in the recordings that I make, as if I'm singing only for that one listener- because I am!

  13. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  14. A: I like to ask what tracks they like the sound of and find inspiring for their work. This helps me understand the overall sound and vibe that the customer is going for. It makes it much easier because a lot of times its really hard to define with just words.

  15. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  16. A: I think communication is key, if you can have a good working relationship then the creative process will come SO much easier! I've stayed good friends with the majority of clients that I've worked with because its such a unique and bonding experience for two creative people!

  17. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  18. A: Both of my guitars (Martin and Fender) , my Microphone (Shure SM7B), my iPad for writing and composing and probably my cat... she counts as gear because she lives in my studio.

  19. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  20. A: My career path was always going to be in writing, however I dropped out of University because I wasn't going to lectures- I was just sat in my room writing songs!

  21. Q: How would you describe your style?

  22. A: I would describe my style as honest and ethereal.

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

  24. A: I'd love to work with Finneas because he seems to understand how to produce a soft voice and make it into something incredibly powerful.

  25. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  26. A: It it feels wrong let it go. No point hanging onto something that you're already bored of. Move onto something new even if it feels like a waste, because you can always come back to a song later- but in the meantime maybe you have 10 other cool songs to work through?

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

  28. A: My main style of music is pop and electronic. I used to do folk and so that is where the softness comes from, however my style has changed a little but I honestly do love to work on any kind of genre that fits my voice. They're all fun!

  29. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  30. A: My voice. I think it's quite versatile and unique. I'm not a belter but I do think that I can hit the notes that make people feel things.

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

  32. A: I think that I bring honest lyrics and a unique voice. Lots of people I have worked for have said that they have cried when listening to my lyrics, which to me is a huge compliment because whatever I do, I want to reach that untouched part of the listener.

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

  34. A: Usually I like to write lyrics alongside melody, let it all flow out at once rather than decide the words beforehand. I want it all to sound super raw and real- and so anything that stunts this is a no no. Therefore my writing process is generally quite fast because it comes along while I listen to the ready made track or create the track myself using piano or guitar.

  35. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  36. A: I have a studio in my home, and work from here full-time. I have all the equipment that I need to produce quality sounding audio including some pretty intense sound-proofing.

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

  38. A: I love Lennon Stella's work, I think that she and Sasha Sloan are two of my biggest inspirations aside from the obvious choice that is Billie Eilish. I love the way they incorporate darkness and honesty into sweet sounding music.

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

  40. A: I usually work on pop or electronic tracks with an ethereal or haunting quality. I am also usually hired as a songwriter additionally due to my background in writing toplines.
