Tatyana Kalko on SoundBetter

With a pulse on current styles, my co-writing work has been featured on CW’s 'Riverdale' and has received over 200,000 plays on Spotify. Whether I'm singing in the studio or creating a melody or lyrics to a track, I have an intuitive ability to translate deep, relatable emotions into melodic and visceral performances that get listener's attention.

I'm a classically trained Singer, Songwriter, Top Line artist and Guitarist (rhythm, fingerpicking) and I want to help take your project to the next level...remotely!
Singing professionally as a back up singer with Working Class Husseys and The Shul Band, I am a master at blending and fitting to the song's needs. As a vocalist, I specialize in world music (Russian, Hebrew, Yiddish, French, Spanish). My intimate and soulful chest voice and smooth, pure upper register is especially suited for jazz, acoustic folk, electro pop and r&b soul. I take a holistic approach to new projects, getting to know the client, your unique style and the theme of the material so I can deliver the most emotionally impactful performance.

With a love for sincere, universal, irreverent and detailed storytelling and vintage hook driven melodies, my songwriting influences range from The Beatles and Carole King to Coldplay and Taylor Swift. Having studied acting at NYU Tisch and the Moscow Art Theatre School, I approach songs as monologues, imbuing my vocal delivery and songwriting with urgency, purpose and a compelling emotional arch. If you're looking to tell a story with warm lush vocals and with the help of an empathic, thoughtful writer look no further!

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    Tatyana is a fantastic songwriter. She was able to create a theme song for my Sinister Girlz podcast in a matter of hours. The lyrics perfectly captured the mood and vibe of the show. Highly recommend.

    She has worked with me in the studio as a vocalist and background singer, and I've performed live with her, supporting her delightfully original music. She brings so much to the table: she is an excellent singer, has a lovely voice that she can blend effortlessly, she has great ears, she is truly wonderful to work with, takes direction well, and she brings professionalism and excellence to every session or live performance.

    I had the pleasure of experiencing Tatyana perform a few times, that led to when looking for artists to perform on my show, she was an early and repeat performer!! Her expertise in varied musical styles, beautiful and captivating voice, incredible originals, pleasant demeanor, and incredible stage presence had her as one of the consistent crowd favorites!! I can also tell you about her stellar character and golden heart, but this is not the forum. I highly recommend Tatyana for any of your musical needs, and am ceratin of your beyond satisfaction!

    I have worked in the studio with Tatyana and she brings a great energy into the room. Her vocals are flexible, strong, and always work to serve the song. Her acoustic guitar playing is concise and beautiful.
