Mariami on SoundBetter

I have a decade of experience in recording & writing. I write for my own catalog and for artists. I'm a two-time finalist in the USA Songwriting Competition, my album "Gates" was featured in the 2016 WWDC Apple Keynote for the new Apple Music launch, I've completed the BMI SongArts Academy and I'm a voting member in The Recording Academy + NSAI.

My strongest suit is Pop/ Urban with nostalgic sensibility. From start to finish, I believe a song has to build emotion and be full of tasteful ear candy & infectious moments! I think a powerful song makes you feel emotions you didn't know you had and keeps you pressing repeat over and over.

I like to make our workflow as easy and efficient as possible. After you send me an instrumental, I will record a first draft demo and we will pass it back and forth as I input your edits. I like to keep job revisions to no more than 2 rounds of edits, but as an artist I understand creating quality art sometimes requires more than that. At the end of the day, we have to create something you absolutely LOVE so this can be negotiated on a per project basis! Upon completion I will send you raw as well as tuned + mixed vocals.

I would love to help you with your project and bring the magic to your music! Let's get started!

    Absolutely amazing talent from Mariami. Her skills in writing lyrics, singing, and mixing her own vocals is Beyond my expectation.
    Fast responses even though there was 6 hours time difference - really professional. I can only recommend her at the fullest if you look for a complete and well-done song.

    When I was looking for a singer, Mariami was everything I was looking for. Not only did she knew immediately what I had in mind for my track, she also had great ideas herself, and has helped me immensely. She's a powerhouse artist, and a great, easy-going person with strong communication skills.If you need a singer/musician, go to Mariami!

    A pleasure to work with Mariami yet again. She brought mastery of a wide poetic vocabulary to my work-in-progress and communicated well in the workroom at the same time. She's always able to back up her creative decisions and paint you a picture. I'm lovin' it.

    Mariami was a pleasure to work with. She has a UNIQUE talent with toplines and lyrics. On top of that, she was able to accommodate my request to take song elements I wanted to keep and adapt them. Amazing artist!

    Mariami was a pleasure to work with. She generously added her own creative input and was so easy to work with. Her vocal sensibilities were spot on and brought just the right personality to the song as well.

    Mariami did an amazing job. She gave life to a few passages that I was unsure how to proceed with. She also communicated well and was very prompt in making the recording!

    Mariami recorded backing and lead vocals to a song of mine. What a beautiful work she's done! Extremely professional, with a lovely timbre and also very creative (I gave her freedom and it was more than a good call, she made it better than I could imagine). Let her do what she feels like! She'll make your song sound like it was made in heaven. :)

    Wonderfully talented, organized, and an all-around great person. Excellent voice, and she's someone who meticulously - and quickly - knocks out top-notch vocals.

    Had a great songwriting lesson with Mariami. Learned an incredible amount in such a short period of time and she's one of the best songwriters on Soundbetter. She gave me a great amount of confidence and helped me get rid of a lot of self doubt when it comes to writing.

    starstarstarstarstar

    Iamari has a truly unique writing voice and instantly brings fresh inspiration to all of her projects. A fiercely hard worker, Iamari also has the level of professionalism and follow-through necessary in a studio environment, and her ability to arrange vocals quickly proves as an added bonus. Plus, she's a great person!

Interview with Mariami

  5. Q: How would you describe your style?

  6. A: Nostalgic + Urban Pop/ Soul

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

  8. A: Stand out of your way. Let your instincts guide you and turn off your inner monologue. Don't censor your creativity. Less is more.
