William Barry on SoundBetter

Hey there! My name's Will and I've sung and written topline for the listening sessions of many artists, including the likes of Ariana Grande, Fifth Harmony, Little Mix, Charlie XCX, Josh Groban and many more. If you're looking for catchy melodies, perfect instrumentals, or even just quality vocals for your song, I'm definitely your guy!

I'm a highly motivated and passionate musician who's studied the art of Songwriting and Performing at the Berklee School of music in Boston. I've played in a number of professional full time bands, and currently I live in LA and write top-line for many artists. I focus on sculpting memorable melodies and universally catchy lyrics. I'm the head writer at Abstract Studios in Glendale and work with a team of producers and engineers to pitch to major artists and labels.

Thanks for your time and I look forward to working with you!

Will

    Will finally completed the fourth song in my children’s literature series, “The Fly Family,” a very personal track addressing the theme that we are all AMAZING beings with wonderful qualities to bring to the world, that we are not better than another, only AS good. Very sexy vibe too! I would LOVE to work on more music with this extremely talented, extremely nice person, but alas, I must go back to the typewriter and create more Fly stories for him to write music about haha.

    I am a children's author and Will writes original songs inspired by the stories in my Fly Family picture book and chapter book series. The songs are featured in the music section of my author website to help illuminate different sides of my stories. This is the third song Will has written for my series and I appreciate how his chord progressions are simple yet beautiful and the melody fits the mood of the story he is writing about. His voice is so clear and pure too!

    Although this whole process was new to me, William supported me throughout and was honest with what we could achieve from the offset. I would definitely be using him in the future :-)

    I needed someone to write and produce a song for me. Will did an amazing job helping me with that. He listened to how I wanted things and changed it if I didn't like something. The song came out better than I imagined. Will definitely work with Will again for future music.

    Will is not only a songwriter but he has written songs of his own (some of which I have heard). In Will’s OWN songs as an artist he sings and writes the truth. He is extremely humble and sincere and his songs are heartfelt. This is the second song he has written for my children’s literature series and he absolutely nailed writing a POWERFUL, uplifting song about self-love and being perfect regardless of your flaws. He is a true professional and took to heart the message of my story. :)

    William came through, killed it, we did a revision and he killed it again. This is the first time I used Soundbetter to get help with songwriting and I couldn't be more pleased. Glad I found this guy.
    Thanks man!

    Will wrote an original track to help advertise and promote my children’s literature series about about a family of house flies who have humanlike characteristics. One of my book characters is heavily into rock and roll and blues music so I felt it was important to hire a songwriter who could produce something young and hip (and not young as in “age.”) Will did a great job of steering clear of “little kiddie song” and kept it contemporary and up-beat without being too heavy for kids.

    William was terrific. I gave him a difficult, unusual assignment, and he excelled. He delivered on time, and his work exceeded my expectations. There were a few small notes at the end, and he did them all dutifully and without complaint. He gave me his phone for easier communication, and the whole process was easy.

    William was a pleasure to work with! He is a ridiculously talented singer / songwriter and wrote what is without a doubt the most catchy song that I have right now. He answered all my questions willingly and was clearly very knowledgeable about the things I was asking. I look forward to working with William again in the future! Thanks William!

    I would give Will 6 stars if I could! Everything from the get-go was top-notch. Will replied to my request right away. I had never done anything like this and he was incredibly patient in explaining the process and walking me through the entire project step by step. He was very fast to create the lyrics and melody, and even faster to make the edits we wanted.

    I can't recommend him highly enough and would work with him again in a heartbeat!

    I can’t thank William enough for his efforts on this project. It should have been a standard process but thankfully, he noticed a couple small problem details that most wouldn’t have caught or would have ignored. - William was patient with me, covered the topic in great detail and worked with me to garner a solution.
    It was a quick turnaround and the vocals were spot on! Extremely talented. Extremely professional and extremely nice person. I hope to work with him again!
