Betty is wonderful! I'm lost for words. She took my project, came up with the secret ingredients needed to serve the dish. Very professional. It shows she is passionate about her craft. In the brief time we were working together I feel our musical connection was in sync. Thanks again and We Will Definitely work together again.
Betty is great hard-work person.
For me one of the important thing is deadlines. Previosly, I had bad expirience with non-profssional attitude to work.
But Betty is totally opposite case. Big thanks her for clear dates, fast feedback, for perfect understading.

Betty understands moods and ideas and give you back beautyfull images through her lyrics and melodies that perfectly get into the sound.
She brings in the project the right balance beetween the emotions and style. Highly professional: always quick, clear and collaborative.
Rather then a work, it was a pleasure and I'm just thinking to the next project with her!
If you asked anyone who knows me they would probably say I was careful with my hard earned cash😂 or tight as the not so polite might refer. I would just like to admit I am but have no problems paying for the wonderful service from Betty. She makes my songs so much better and this is the second time I have asked for her assistance. Thanks Betty. You are amazing. Best regards Phil Parker.

I really enjoyed working with Betty. She is creative, professional and talented.
I first asked Betty if she'd join me in creating some serious magic, and within one amazingly professinal and creative journey, that's exactly what we created.

Interview with Betty Lawrence
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: When writing topline, I use Logic Pro X with a Rode microphone to record a demonstration of melody and lyrics. However, I also have access to several professional studios with pro-tools software and a range of microphones if the job requires.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Writing topline for producers or writing acoustically "from scratch" to spec for artists/bands.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Sia, Este Dean, Drake, Miguel, Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, Jhene Aiko and Harmony Samuels (writer/producer) have provided the most recent inspiration for me. However, I am an avid listener of every popular genre and take influence from many writers, producers and artists across a multitude of genres and employ this into all of my writing.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I am a firm believer that having a strong melody and melodic hook is the most important element of any song and my ability to find and create catchy melodies over an instrumental track is where my strength as a writer lies.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work mostly on R&B/Urban and Electronic/Dance influenced pop however I have recently worked on pop/rock and country/pop projects also.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: It's really helpful if you give as much information about what you're looking for from the song as possible. E.g. if there is a certain artist or song you want the track to sound like or a certain vibe you are looking for then please provide as many reference points as you can. It's always better to write from the outset knowing exactly what the client is hoping the end product will sound like.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I was introduced to SoundBetter by Mickey Shiloh (topline writer) and Firstborn (Producer). I know both of these people are at the top of their game in terms of writing and production so would certainly recommend them both.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: On receiving an instrumental track (or a beat) from a producer, I usually import it into Logic and get in front of the mic and test different melodies to try and find the strongest melodic hook for the song. Quite often I will have thought of a lyrical concept I want to explore before hand and this will influence the style of melodies and phrasing that I employ into the topline. I am used to, and often prefer if an artist or producer has a lyrical concept they want to incorporate into the song and then I build the song around this idea. Once I have a strong idea for the first section of the song i.e. intro, verse, pre, chorus, post, I record making sure each section fits and makes sense (both in terms of rhythm and melody and lyrically) and then send this idea back to the producer or artist. Based on the feedback for the initial idea, if the client is pleased with the initial idea I will continue the idea or revise if needs be.
