For any track I write or sing on, I reserve the right to be credited or uncredited on a track as main artist alongside producer or feature, unless previously agreed otherwise.

    I have only good things to say about Calvin. This was my first time using Soundbetter so I did not know what to expect. I am a bit of a perfectionist so I'm probably not the easiest to work with, and I was a bit worried about this. Calvin however was very patient and flexible and presented various concepts until we both were satisfied with the result. I am very happy with the vocal recorings -- Calvin provided a perfect topline.

    Calvin is an incredibly talented writer and vocalist. Within a few days, he was able to deliver a demo with high-quality vocals straight away. He has the ability to quickly adapt to an initial idea, as well as bring to the project a different set of ears that you can trust if needed. Through working with him, I found that he is always striving to make music sound as good as possible, and I would 100% recommend working with him.

    Calvin went above and beyond to produce vocals for me that were just what I wanted. I really appreciate him going the extra mile. His voice is great - I'm loving hearing him on my song - he understands pop and soul and his rhythm and melodic detail sit perfectly into the track. He also sent some ad lib vocals and extras for me to play with and they are amazing. Calvin is a talented singer and musician, and I hope to work with him again in the future! Thanks SO MUCH Calvin!!!

    Calvin is an absolute beast in the studio. This is my second project with him in the last month and both projects he has absolutely nailed. He does an amazing job of bringing your vision to life, while also adding his own flare and making the vocal tone, melody, and lyrics, all fit the track beautifully. If you are looking for someone who has great creativity, workflow, and overall is a pleasure to work with. This is your guy!

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

  10. A: I can sum this up in one word, I'm a perfectionist. If i think a song ive written is 'ok' i wont use it. I keep going until what i've written moves me in some way, then you know its gonna be good :)

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: My strongest skill is most likely melody writing, i love the moment when ive created a nice emotional melody, i think one of most important parts of a song is the melody, but obviously every part is important!

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: Justin Bieber meets EDM

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

  22. A: So I'm a self taught musician starting from the early age of 4 and had a natural ear for music. As a self taught pianist/keyboardist and Music Producer . In 2009 I started hitting the airwaves at the age of 15 with my release of 'Torn apart' A dance track that was picked up and playlisted on radio station 2FM by presenters Ruth Scott and Damian Farrelly which made it number one on numerous national download sites.Then touted as Ireland's answer to Cascada , Yann Peifer of Cascada showed keen interest and support. I've had song placements on many TV shows in Ireland ,Portugal and Australia. After many years of Studying and perfecting my Production skills,In 2013 I Formed a Pop duo called Stage One with fellow duo member Ovié Etsyetsé who is also a Singer/Songwriter and one of Ireland's highly sought after and talented Music Video Directors. Combining our talents, we released our Debut single and Music video on VEVO ,which was released on Irish Airwaves in 2013 and were support act for JLS and Kodaline.

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

  24. A: MY MACBOOK, My microphone, my phone, Food obviously, and a power supply? :P

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

  26. A: If you're looking for me to do a project regarding vocals don't be shy to show me a work in progress because that what I'm here to help with!

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

  28. A: Id like to know exactly what way they want the finished project to sound like! Even if its vague!

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

  34. A: I love music , so obviously to be able to work with this is amazing!

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

  36. A: My promise is to only take on board a track if i really believe it i something i can make great. If i feel it would be better to refer you to a more suited producer, I will. I wont take on a project just to make money.

  37. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  38. A: I have forever used digital as i create custom synths as well as replicate popular sounds, so definitely digital.
