I'm a pop songwriter/topliner. My work has been featured on Netflix, BBC Radio, and MTV Europe. I specialize in playful, catchy, sing-a-long-able hooks with unique cadences. My latest singles have been released under a number of tastemaker labels such as ALT:Vision Records ( an imprint of Republic Records).
I am dedicated to writing cutting-edge music while maintaining a mass-appeal. As a result of collaborating with a number of up-and-coming producers in the internet-age, my sound has been influenced by a "left-of-center" approach. That being said, much of my writing is informed by the years I've spent listening to Max Martin records and every early 2000s pop queen you can name.
I write, record, and comp vocal toplines that will live comfortably in the world of your track. I believe that the topline has to compliment and interact with the production in a way that makes it sound like the entire song was written in the same room at the same time by the same person.
I specialize in vocals that can have a hard-hitting pop sound as well as a more delicate R&B feel. My vocals are currently being used in the music of the Netflix show, Harvey Street kids.
Without any major label or publisher backing, my songs have racked up millions of streams online, have been placed in several editorial Spotify playlists, been released and re-released under tastemaker labels such as Monstercat Records ( Marshmello, Slushii, Duumu), Majestic Casual Records and ALT:Vision of Republic Records. My music has caught the attention of publications such as Earmilk, YourEDM and RuntheTrap.

Anh whipped up another beautiful and creative musical and vocal take for my reference-based song. What a pleasure to work with her. What a voice! What great personal style on the keys too. Seems to me like creating is as easy as breathing for her. Don't hesitate to hire this gem of an artist!
Anh is a great talent with an easy going personality, a beautiful touch on the piano and such a fantastic voice. One in a million.
Anh did a seriously awesome job of quickly turning around my request and providing me with a track that's beautiful, vocally intricate and complex and, most of all, unique to a sound that only she can create and perform. Fantastic stuff as always!
Anh is a one of a kind talent. Her singing and playing on my track was brilliant and flawless. Her vocal qualities are as unique as her interpretations and arrangements - truly special. See you next time, Anh.
Never, ever, ever had anything but a great result from the most talented, Anh. So good. Put the style, the voice and the playing all together and Anh delivers something special every time. What a special talent she is!
Thank you for sharing your excellent and compelling voice, your lovely musicianship and your masterful creativity on this track, Anh. You add more than a touch of "special" to all the music you touch!
Anh is exceptional in every way. I hope we can make music together forever. For those of you looking for a singer/player on SB, you won't find anyone quite like Anh. She is in a league of her own. Special talent!
Anh continues to "WOW." She did an exceptional job on this test track and brought beauty to song musically and vocally. Based on this performance, I have engaged her to do the final full recording that will, no doubt, exceed expectations. I'll say it again, Anh and her talent are gift to the world. Wonderful!
It would be downright impossible to go wrong with Anh. Really nice job on this fun little song! So talented. Looking forward to lots more songs with Anh.
Anh is great to work with and a true and natural talent. I can't wait until our next project.
Working with Anh was great. I had some difficulty communicating my vision in the beginning - mostly due to the inherent limitations of communicating solely through emails - but we eventually settled on an effective working method and that, combined with her eagerness to do a great job, won out in the end. It's also worth mentioning that she has a very professional and upbeat demeanor. Looking forward to working with her again.
Without question Anh is the best songwritter and the most professional person I ever worked with. If you have the opportunity to work with her I suggest you to start your project immidiately. Hands down one of the best in the biz. Thanks for your work Anh!
Best of Best
Anh's artistry and creative input is a must have! She is a true professional. Will love to work with you again!
Anh is amazing songwriter and topliner. She is such a pleasure to work with. Can't wait to start a new song with you.
Every song comes out great. Anh knows exactly how to create edgy topline and deliver outstanding and catchy lyrics. Simply amazing!
Anh is naturally talented with her songwriting abilities, she was able to switch up her style based on what was needed! On top of that: fast turn-around, great communication, quality work!
Anh is professional, precise and edgy. If you need a radio oriented song contact her without a second thought. Highly recommended!
Ahn has done an amazing job (both lyrics and topline), she is technically and lyrically astute. It was fast delivered, communication was excellent, it fitted my vision 100%
Thank you so much!
If you want lyric and female vocals, just click it.
She has outstanding ability.
Interview with Anh Le
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: It may sound really simple...but I probably went through at least 5 drafts to come up with that.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: 1. When do you need this by? 2. What do you want it to sound like? 3. Do you have specific sections that you would like for me not to sing on? 4. How would you like for me to sing it? ( I might get light headed but yes...I can make this sound more breathy) 5. What do you want the audience to feel when they hear this song?? **8
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Much like a producer, if you got a reference song that makes it a whole lot easier for me to get what you're trying to go for - ya feel me? Also, let me know how much you want to be involved. I can either lock myself in a room and be like " ok see ya in three days with a song!" - or we can have a couple of skype dates. I'm always down to become friends :)
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: hah! That's basically what I have now. So I'll take it all! my computer, mic, midi-keyboard, and my hard drive with all my sounds.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I took piano lessons when I was 5, started singing in some hardcore choirs, started writing songs ( did all of this while making youtube covers). Started really dedicated my whole life to music when I went into college.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Girly? :) Short- punchy, pastel-colored. or dark, sassy, makes-you -wanna-do a body roll.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Asia Whitacre is my songwriting idol and I'd love to work with her some day ( she wrote Starving and Most Girls by Hailee Steinfeld) Lido because he's always spreading the message that you should always listen to yourself and follow your gut over the advice of others. Ironically, I've taken that advice to heart.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always ask "why?" Your answer doesn't have to be deep (because it makes the song sound more #bangin' is a perfectly acceptable reason) but you need to justify your choices.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop/ electronic.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Hmm..consideration of the audience. I always think: is this something the audience will want to sing-along to? Or is this just something that makes me sound good. I never let my skill as a vocalist cloud my judgement on what makes a strong, catchy melody.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I work chords/melody first. When I'm writing, I kinda have a feel of what the emotion is going to be and what key words will be sung. But, honestly, it's mostly gibberish lyrics until I LOVE the melody I've written. Then, I walk around playing crossword puzzle with my own song to see what words communicate the message I'm trying to convey while not getting in the way of the melody.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Your typical bedroom studio: Mic, preamp, computer, keyboard, headphones, a very full hard drive.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Lido, Alison Wonderland, Lauv, Kehlani, Asia Whitacre, Julia Michaels, Banks, Vérité, Great Good Fine OK, Loote, Illenium, Sundial
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Topline and singing
