Sydney Jane on SoundBetter

My name is Sydney and I'm a singer, songwriter, and composer with over 13 years of classical training as a vocalist and a current #5 house song in the UK - "Sydney's Song" by Michael Calfan :) I specialize in top-line writing for pop and electronic music and professional vocal performance. Count on me for a modern, yet timeless sound in your music!

As mentioned above, I have over 13 years of classical training as a vocalist, but what really helps to create a unique sound in my work is my additional years of experience behind the scenes as lead composer for two feature-length films, and co-producer of my own EP, "Innocent, Alive". I have a great understanding of music, especially the depth of feeling that needs to be cultivated within each piece, whether it be through vocals, lyrics, or general arrangement. I specialize in vocals and songwriting and have written and/or sung pieces ranging from house to country, R&B, rock, and beyond. I also produced the music for most of the songs on my reel. My range of services includes:

- Original melody and/or lyrics for your hook or entire piece
- Vocal performance for your already-written piece
- Vocal arrangement for your already-written piece
- Helping to finish the writing for a song you've already started
- Background vocals
- Music production/arrangement (songs or EPs)

Each song is different and you can expect me to treat your piece with the care and unique approach necessary to take it to the next level. Looking forward to working with you!

Interview with Sydney Jane

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

  2. A: Practice enough so you can play or sing freely without hesitation. If you're recording someone, pay attention to every detail while they're recording.

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

  4. A: I bring a lively, intense energy, even on slower songs. I love catchy, melodic vocals that are easy to listen to and fun to sing for the everyday person, so I try to always stay grounded in songs. I want people to keep singing what they've heard after just one listen, I think that's a great sign of a good song.

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

  6. A: I am lucky enough to work from a home studio, so my process is very relaxed and open. I usually hear melodies on tracks right away, and the words come along afterwards. I know I'm heading in the right direction musically when I can't help but dance a little to whatever idea is playing around in my head. I truly believe that if you feel something great in music, your body reacts, so it's important to have fun!

  7. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  8. A: I work from a small studio at home using Logic X and an AT2020 for vocals. It seems like it's not the most high-end microphone, but surprisingly out-performs all of the competitors for high-pitched vocals like mine.

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

  10. A: I'm a singer first, so my favorite vocal inspirations are Robert Plant, Stevie Wonder, Beyonce, Prince, Tamia, Chet Baker, Sampha, and all of those unnamed singers who absolutely kill EDM pop songs and turn them into anthems.

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

  12. A: The most common work that I do for clients is top-line writing and singing. I love those final stages of song production, when a voice and lyrics are introduced to really bring everything together!
