Nina was easy to work with and she was willing to work on my song until I got what I needed.
Another great job from Nina, smart harmony choices, soul. Perfect
Another flawless great job from Nina, what else can I say ? :)
Nina had me in tears when she sent me her demo. Imagine how I felt when she sent me the final vocals. #JAHBLESS. Her voice and #PERFORMANCE is EXACTLY what I wanted and needed. She is an angel and she is a true professional. Nina made our hit song 🎵 a hit CLASSIC. #TRUE #PRO #ONE #LOVE #WE #UP #SISTA
Always great to work with Nina, she has a great sense of melody and a great voice and is very easy to work with.
Nina has a great voice and is a pleasure to deal with. Her experience as a Jazz singer gives her the ability to come up with great harmonies, i recommend working with her 100%
I've had a project unfinished for over a year where I needed authentic background vocals for a single song. It's a part I haven't been able to fill, even with contacts and plenty of access to Nashville, L.A & NYC talent. I just couldn't find anyone that fit.. Until Nina. She didn't just sing background vocals, she created a background vocal arrangement that made the song soar. 10/10.. On time, clear communication and pleasant to deal with. 100% has my endorsement!
My 2nd review as I HAD to get Nina to do more to the song that we worked on. She is a fantastic & mature talent. She knows exactly how to deliver harmonies. Definitely one of the top artists to utilize for your reggae productions!
Nina has a wonderful voice and gave me more than what I expected!
What so say about Nina? she's just super professional, the communication was the best I had here on SoundBetter, she is very reactive and sended me before a demo of the harmonies before recording. She took my song seriously and that's really pleasant. That was really an honor, and if you want harmonies for a reggae song, and give that iconic sound that's the place to be.
