    What more can I say, Raena is amazing hands down. I don’t usually even both writing reviews being that I’m ever really happy dealing with people on Soundbetter. In fact, Raena is the 3rd person I’ve have to work this song. With my back against the wall and my fingers crossed I found that Diamond in the sky. My confidence has been restored. Thanks to my new found friend and go to singer. You where the voice I’ve heard in my head since I started the production on this song. I can’t wait for us to

Interview with Raena

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

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

  3. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  4. A: Christy Carey - he is my go to producer! I am a complete perfectionist and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my songs! He is an extremely talented producer and musician with such a brilliant work ethic and compassion to create exactly what his client's envision. https://soundbetter.com/profiles/344761-christy-carey Chloe Blackwell - she is an incredibly talented and conscientious vocalist and songwriter that I have had the pleasure to collaborate with. https://soundbetter.com/profiles/192492-chloe-blackwell

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

  6. A: At the age of 24, 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. A year and a half ago 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! I am currently also pursuing a solo career under RAENE, which is a brand new project but has already received the attention of BBC Radio, Universal and Notion.

  7. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  8. A: I am a solo artist under RAENE - in this project I am the vocalist, song writer and executive producer. https://open.spotify.com/artist/6fTa2ugChlaoRIF6jvrZdV?si=IRTIY5HzRiWYU1a1IK5J2Q

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

  10. A: Timberland or Pharrell Williams because their production is so creative and they create incredibly catchy hooks!

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

  12. A: Kehlani, H.E.R, Ariana Grande, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams.

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: I use a Neumann M147, Universal Audio Apollo Twin X preamp, Macbook Pro, Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO headphones and Logic Pro X in my home recording studio.

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

  16. A: Being able to sing and make music everyday. I get to do what I love for a living!

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

  18. 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!

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

  20. 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!

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

  22. 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!

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

  24. A: RnB/Pop.

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

  26. 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!

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: Vocally, I'd say my falsetto and in writing my strength is creating catchy hooks and being able to resonate with genuine emotions and experiences in others.

  29. Q: How would you describe your style?

  30. A: RnB/Pop

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

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

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

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

  35. Q: Analog or digital and why?

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

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

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