    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!

    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.
    thank you
