Danielle A. Harris on SoundBetter

If you're looking for captivating vocals for your project, I'm here to exceed your expectations.

For over 15 years, I've been passionate about recording emotive, professional vocals. While I am extremely versatile - classically trained, studied jazz performance in college while being in a rock band on the side - my greatest strength is the authenticity I bring to each performance. Of note, my electro-pop band, Slow Sugar, played numerous shows across New York City (Rough Trade, Gramercy Theatre, Hammerstein Ballroom, etc.) and our releases were featured on Spotify editorial playlists. Our music was also featured on TV, as well as in radio and internet advertisements. Aside from writing and singing for my own projects, I've written in-house for labels developing pop artists, producers developing Broadway shows, producers developing a TV show on Hulu, and Jazz ensembles. In October of 2023, I made my debut as a solo artist, under the name Zalomé, with the original song "If I Was Your Girl."

You can hear more of my songwriting and vocal abilities by listening to Slow Sugar and Zalomé on any major music platform.

    Danielle has to be one of the most incredible vocalists I've had the pleasure of working with, and I've worked with hundreds!! Not only is she super professional with the quality and performance of her vocals but she's a fantastic human being too. I absolutely adored working with her and I would be extremely honoured to work with her again!

    Danielle is truly a professional both in her approach to work and with her voice. That, her willingness to go the extra mile for your project and the emotion she puts in make for a great partner-in-crime for any songwriter/producer.

    Danielle is a super talented vocalist with a focused professional demeanor. We’ve worked together on several projects over the years. Recently she delivered artistic lead vocals and harmony parts for a New York City radio jingle. She is easy to work with and delivered her parts quickly. Highly recommended!

    Danielle is my go to female vocalist for any project. Her natural voice is haunting and unique. At the same time she can deliver a polished pop vocal and has a great ear for harmonies. We have done things for Nickelodeon, movie trailers and her voice was instrumental in helping me get an upcoming Amazon show. Professional and a great hang.

    Danielle is a megawatt talent. I’ve been a fan of hers and was lucky to have her sing the perfect bgvs on a single of mine from last year, “Is It Ever Now”. Incredible tone, with variety, sick range and classy musicality. Took direction seamlessly and had takes back in no time. 100% recommend.

Interview with Danielle A. Harris

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

  2. A: My clients' satisfaction is of the utmost importance to me. I understand, from personal experience, that communication about something as subjective as music can sometimes be difficult so I don't mind if I have to spend more time than anticipated to get you exactly what you want. I am determined to get my clients a finished product that exceeds expectations.

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

  4. A: I began professional voice training and songwriting at age 13. In my late teens, I trained for several years under Don Lawrence (vocal coach of Lady Gaga, Mick Jagger, PJ Harvey, etc.). After graduating college, I moved to New York to start an electropop band, Slow Sugar which was active for almost 3 years until we went our separate ways. For the last year I have been developing my solo project, which is more alternative and less electronic than my band was, at Four Foot Studios in Brooklyn.

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

  6. A: I often get called for projects that are emotive, moody, and/or cinematic. For example, I recently provided vocals for beautiful, haunting covers of upbeat throwback songs for a murder mystery podcast.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: I have definitely been told by many clients that I have a knack for delivering moving performances. I have always been a storyteller, even as a young girl, and ultimately my purpose with every job is to tell that story in a way that is so authentic that the listener can't help but be drawn in.

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

  10. A: I bring a unique, dynamic and versatile voice (I've sung nearly every genre professionally, except for rap and folk); due to the fact that I'm developing and writing my own solo artist project, I bring a fresh, creative sensibility; poignant performance.

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

  12. A: I always start by listening to the song numerous times, away from my recording set up, prior to doing any recording. I do this to focus on learning the song without thinking about the recording task at hand - how I am going to approach this part, where I should put harmonies, etc. This method allows me to fully internalize the song so that by the time I get to the microphone I can focus on the emotion in my performance.

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: I use an SM7B and depending on the song will use either a Kaotica Eyeball or sE Electronics reflection filter. I use a Universal Audio Apollo Twin Duo into Logic. I have Yamaha HS5 monitors, a large Roland midi keyboard and a vintage Harmony electric guitar (going DI into the apollo).

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

  16. A: I am inspired by PJ Harvey because of the way she conveys raw emotion and authenticity.

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

  18. A: The most common type of work I do is that of providing lead vocals, harmonies, and sometimes assisting in the writing of melody and/or harmony.
