You can hear my voice as the lead singer of the band FARR (with over 5 million combined streams) and on various other recordings either in the background or upfront. From a young age I was lucky enough to be mentored by some of the biggest songwriters around (Dan Wilson "Someone Like You" "Closing Time") and have been surrounded by immense musical talent. This has left me with a broad range of influence which in turn has allowed my voice to take any direction it needs to. I have don't vocal work for EDM acts and Hip Hop artists alike, from the same studio and from halfway across the world. My band is split between Los Angeles and London which make me no stranger to long distance collaboration and has also made me very quick and efficient in the process. I am here to help express your artistic vision!

Interview with Roméo
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am a full time singer and songwriter. My usual work consists of vocal arrangement, demo vocals, and background vocals. I cover areas ranging from pop, to blues, to soul. I also do sample pack singing from time to time as well.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work out of a fully functional studio in LA. I use an SM7 for everything, and have it running through a UAD Apollo. I use a sound guard so vocals are quiet and direct. I engineer, comp and process all my vocals here upon request, running Ableton Live 9, I have all necessary vocal plugins (i.e. autotune, lexicon, UAD compressors/channel strips) to deliver a demo ready vocal.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically, I'll sit down and listen to a song a few times to get the gist of the melodies and over all feel, and then usually jump right in. I record in sections (verse/pre/chorus), and then circle back around to add background vocals. I do multiple takes of each part, and at the end will comp, x fade, and process the vocals.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I sing on the bluesier side of the spectrum most of the time, because my voice can be a bit raspy. I sing pretty loud and the highs in my voice are pretty prominent. I have a high falsetto that is on the prince end of things. I can sing clean pop vocals if I need to, but the former is more fun.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been a full time recording artist since I was 15 years old, I'm now writing songs full time and am releasing music as well. I'm pursuing a career as a singer songwriter full time, but I mostly just want to make music and be a part of the creation of other people's.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: UAD, Guitar, Mic, solar power, and my computer.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: BE CLEAR! I cannot stress enough, lack of clarity will never get your vision realized. I follow close direction from any client I work with and it is always the best end result when they come to me with a clear vision of what they need, out of the vocal I am providing. I don't want to waste your time or money on something that wont make you happy.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What does this song mean to you? What are you looking for? What style of music are you looking for this vocal to sit? How much creative control do I have to add vocal textures (bv's)? (if none that is also 100% ok) What vocals of other songs could you compare to what you want?
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love making music. I do it all day every day anyways, so why not work and create at the same time?
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that I will be honest and hard working. I am meticulous and wont deliver anything sub par. If I feel as though my voice will not suit a song, I will tell you that I am not for the job. I will follow as close to your vision as possible and will do my utmost to sell the song the way you intend.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Im currently doing vocal sessions out of my studio for various artists records. I do bv's but I also hire out some friends of mine who are gospel singers and we do choir parts. I am also writing for various other artists.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I recently did choir parts for an amazing artist out of the UK that I'm really excited to have released. I think it was the most in depth parts I have had to do, and the end result sounded like the best work I've done yet on the arrangement back ground front.
