I have written with two Grammy Award Winning Songwriters on repeat whose credits include Adele, Kylie Minogue, Christina Aguilera, Sia, Beck, Paloma Faith, Duffy, James Bay. I am a fast writer with great attention to detail and emotional depth. I have a BA Honours Degree in 'Songwriting and Performance' acquired at the prestigious LIPA, UK.
If you’re looking for a prolific writer with the capacity to deliver hooks, compelling vocals and emotive lyrics get in contact today. Tell me your goals and we can take it from there.
How does it work?
Initially, get in touch to tell me about your project and what it is you’d like me to do.
If I am writing lyrics for you, you can provide a reference track that reflects the lyrical tone/theme you would like me to capture.
For top-line melody writing or vocals, you can specify what you’d like to achieve in terms of mood, vocal texture, artists, or songs that capture the feel you’re looking for.
Once I’ve quoted you and all questions have been answered from both sides you can accept the quote I’ve presented and then send me the instrumental. I’ll work fast to send you an initial draft within 1 to 2 days from that moment of payment. I will await your approval until developing the track further. Changes to the top line melody and lyrics can be made at this point.
If you want me to sing your song I'd be happy to book into a studio here in London (rates are flexible to fit your budget). Otherwise, vocals will be recorded from my home studio. I have over 15 years of experience with Logic Pro and use a Digi Rack Pro with the Rhode NTK mic through a Neve Pre Amp.
Send me an email through the 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

3 ReviewsEndorse Sylva Kay
I travelled across the world a couple times to make a record with Sylva. She’s one of a kind. The real deal. Some of the best music I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating on was with Sylva. Hopefully we can continue despite the great distance from USA to the UK. She taps directly into her heart when she sings. Again I say, she’s the real deal.
Sylva Kay is one of those rare artists who brings not only agile, creative vision to a project, but also the technical means to accomplish it. Sylva’s comprehensive understanding of the creative process means working with her on any aspect of writing or production is totally fluent - from raw lyric, melody and track ideas, through finessing arrangements and demo’s, to recording, editing and production. Sylva’s dedication, professionalism and work ethic is genuinely inspiring and motivating - a huge asset to writing or recording projects alike!
It was absolute pleasure to work with Sylva for a recent project on my label Too-Chez. She brought a wealthy of creativity, experience and professionalism to the project. The results of the project were excellent and secured mainstream radio rotation on a leading dance music station and multiple DJ support. If you're looking for truly exciting vocal tones and emotive lyrical content, I can't recommend Sylva highly enough. Looking forward to working on the next project soon. Many Thanks, Robin Axford (Ministry of Sound, Mercury/Universal, Too-Chez).
