I've used Nina a few times now, each time with a little different flavor and she always manages to adapt to the style, and always write and creates parts and harmonies that take the song to the next level. This project was outside her normal genre, and not only did she adapt, but she crafted the perfect harmony parts. Always a pleasure to work with.
Once again Nina took a project and elevated it to another level. Clear communication and fast workflow. I can't say anything but great things about her and her work. 10/10
Nina did a great job for the project. She delivered vocals we needed on time. I recommend her
Nina Karle is so good I'm going to have a baby with her so that I can hear her angelic voice sing every day lol! She is the #1 CHAMPION SOUND! @ExcelMixMaster #WeOutside!!
Nina was awesome to work with and gave the project exactly what it needed. She has excellent sensibilities and a great voice. Thanks again!
Great topline singer Nina delivered high quality vocals for the song. And very creative lyrics with harmonies, overall great on the singing and the song.
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.
