    Marcello was great. He was extremely responsive and seemed excited about the project from the get go. He's a great vocalist and delivered exactly what I was looking for. I really enjoyed working with him. Thanks Marcello!

    I started working with Marcello and his team back in 2020, and we just finished up our 34th song together. Every single song has been handled with absolutely white-glove care in every regard - vocally, instrumentally, production - until it crossed the finish line as the very best version of itself and exactly what I was looking for. There is no greater gift for a songwriter. Marcello is your one-stop-shop for perfection. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

    Marcello has given me a superlative rock record which would have been cheap at 10x the price. I think Marcello and his team have a great passion for creating great rock music for their clients, and they did for me. Marcello showed much care and gave me space, so I could get the record sounding the way I wanted it. I've always thought that many session musicians have more pure musical talent than most famous musicians, and this track that Marcello and his team have produced for me, proves it.

    Perhaps most folks on Soundbetter know Marcello as a top-shelf vocalist, and with good reason - he is an exceptionally talented singer and it's been a privilege to have his incredible voice on so many of my songs. But Marcello's abilities go way beyond singing - his truly fabulous team delivers beyond-expectations work on all musical fronts, in this case converting a guitar piece of mine to an absolutely gorgeous piano & strings version. Marcello can do it all - so thankful!

    Very professional songwriter & singer!

    Marcello elevated my EDM/Rock track to the next level; he provided quality customer service to promptly incorporate my suggested revisions to the initial draft of vocals.

Interview with Marcello

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

  2. A: Lots of things, 5 full albums with different bands in different styles. Writing lyrics and melodies for well know artist.

  3. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  4. A: Assuming I'll have a studio and a stage on that island 😁, I would take my Neumann mic for recordings, my Shure mix for live performances, my in ear monitor and my custom molded headphones. Ah...and a bottle of jack Daniels.. cause it would get pretty boring in a desert island after awhile..

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

  6. A: Singing for as long as I can remember. Session singing as a full time job for 7 years and loving every minute of it!

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

  8. A: There's simply too many to mention. I made so much great songs on these last 5 years that it would be impossible to single out any of them.

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: I am extremely versatile and I love to explore, but my tone generally puts me in a contemporary rock and classic rock vibe.

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

  12. A: Surround yourself with the best and most reliable people you can. They will help you shine and you will learn from them. Choose the right equipment but don't let the equipment control you.

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

  14. A: Queen have always inspired me since childhood. Everything about them is magic.

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

  16. A: Lots of amazing talent around here! Hard to pinpoint anyone but.. If you need amazing piano and brilliant keyboard arrangements, talk to Fab Jablonsky, he's the real deal. For rap, Wes Writer kills. Songwriting Team are great professionals too.

  17. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  18. A: Both. Each song is a different story and analog and digital can perfectly coexist in order to serve the music.

  19. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  20. A: The most common is: - Dude, how can you hit those insane notes consistently all the time? The answer is normally: - High notes are overrated, but just in case it's needed, I keep training for it!

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

  22. A: Tell me all you can about your song. Make it personal, tell me your story. I want to know you so I can deliver exactly what YOU want and not what I want.

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

  24. A: Everything I am and everything I got. Always! All those years honing my skills made me passionate about what I do and love the idea that I create a gift of emotion each time I work on a song.

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

  26. A: Depends on the type of work. The most common is to write lyrics + melodies and record vocals. I normally lock myself in the vocal booth with the instrumental and press play. After a few rounds I start recording my ideas until I find THAT perfect melody line for the song. After that I will write the words to fit perfectly on my melodies and record a first take, usually a verse and a chorus and send over to the client to get some feedback. After that, if all is good I will record the final take, 2 or 3 times, record all the harmony layers and then, comp, edit, make a rough mix and send over to the client for final approval.

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

  28. A: The freedom to do what I love and have the opportunity to work and create relationships with people from all across the globe.

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

  30. A: I ALWAYS deliver. Just check my reviews and my work. I play with my strengths and I never had one single client unhappy. Just try me!

  31. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  32. A: People usually look at me and think I am just a Rock singer. Fortunately I can sing the hell out of a rock song but I can do a lot more than that ;)

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

  34. A: Choosing someone to work remotely on a very personal thing as your own music is sometimes a difficult task. Expectations are always high and you have to choose someone that truly understand and respects your work, someone that checks the ego at the door and have the presence and experience to deliver exactly what you needed even if you did not know exactly what you needed in the first place! And that's exactly what you get with me.

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

  36. A: You have to be ready for anything and play with your strengths! I work very well, but no exclusively, with Rock, Hard Rock/Metal, EDM, Pop and Country.

  37. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  38. A: I have a knack to create catchy melodies and lyrics and sing in both male and female ranges. Drop me your song and I'll deliver you a great surprise back!

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I have a personal sound treated studio built from the ground up to provide me personal access to do quality work 24 hours a day.

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

  42. A: Most of the work I do for clients revolves around recording vocals and harmonies for songs and/or demos and creating top lines (melodies) and lyrics for songs. Most of the time all of them go together.
