    This is THE most amazing experience I had on Soundbetter. I almost chose someone else because she didn't have enough reviews. Luckily I couldn't say no to her voice

    And it turned out she has great sense, she's productive and fast writer. I was expecting a 10 day turnover period but we finished the track in 3 days

    She has great voice, and she is a great topliner and song writer. I am writing another track just for her.

Interview with Raena

  1. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  2. A: Falsetto.

  3. Q: How would you describe your style?

  4. A: RnB/Pop

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: To be a good person to work and communicate with and to always produce excellent results that clients will be happy with!

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital, because I know how to use it! Otherwise, Analog is a timeless and beautiful way to record.

  9. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  10. A: I have numerous projects on the go at the moment, all writing and recording vocals for producers.

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

  12. A: I mostly record top line vocals, sometimes these vocals are written by the client and other times I will write them.

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

  14. A: Kehlani, H.E.R, Ariana Grande, Etta Bond.

  15. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  16. A: I use Sontronics STC3 microphone, Focusrite Scarlett Interface, Macbook Pro, Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO headphones and Logic Pro X in my home recording studio.

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

  18. A: I will go over the brief provided by the client and then write the vocals if this is required. If not, I will record the written vocals (by following a guide vocal) in my home recording studio using Logic Pro X. Once finished, I will bounce the dry wav files and send them across to the client!

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

  20. A: My unique vocal tone and writing experience. I can also provide complex backing vocals and harmonies if requested.

  21. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  22. A: RnB/Pop.

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

  24. A: If you haven't received the BPM for a track on Logic Pro X, go to 'Metering' > 'BPM Counter to find the tempo. Once the track has been put in time, recording vocals is much easier in terms of editing and making sure everything is in time!

  25. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  26. A: Pharrell Williams because his production, creativity and arrangements are so authentic and out of the box!

  27. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  28. A: At the age of 23, I have been singing and song writing for over ten years and started collaborating with other musicians from the age of 16. Whilst studying for my degree in Creative Musicianship specialising in Vocals, I have played many prestigious venues in central London including The Royal Albert Hall and Camden Assembly. I have also recorded in numerous studios with producers. In the last year I went full time as a Freelance Musician and it has been an incredible experience working with many talented individuals to help bring their visions to life!

  29. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  30. A: Know what vocal sound you're looking for and then find it through the audio samples provided on profiles. Different singers don't just have different tones and ranges but they can also bring a completely different energy to your track. Have a voice in mind first before finding it!

  31. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  32. A: I will always ask to hear the instrumental and brief before agreeing to work on a track as I need to be passionate about the project!

  33. Q: What do you like most about your job?
