I've got a smokey, soulful voice, and have had the great fortune of being a successful recording artist and songwriter since 1998. I've collaborated to write with artists here, on Soundbetter, and some of those songs are seeing more than 100k plays on streaming sites. As a songwriter and performer, I have songs in the top 30 on indie soul charts.
I have a powerful, sultry voice, and have long standing experience of writing songs with memorable hooks. I've been told I have a voice similar to India Arie, Joss Stone, Judith Hill, and more. I believe the variety of comparison is because the technicality and tone are similar, but my tone is unique enough that it stands out on its own.
As a songwriter, I've worked with a number of independent artists from all different backgrounds and genres. Soul, R&B, and Blues are my primary genres, yet, I've been a songwriter and vocal producer for country, pop, and EDM artists.* (See below for details)
When you hire me you can expect quality. I do all comping and editing before sending final tracks. I do have access to larger studios if necessary (with an additional cost). I can also offer services for instruments, such as guitar and bass work.
• All songs start with a 50/50 split in addition to writing/performing fee
• Full buyout is available starting at $1000 in addition to writing/performing fee

Amber is a real gift. Not only is she a great singer, but she is a great technician, delivers multiple stems ready for mixing, adds her creative input and is very easy to work with. I strongly recommend her.
Amber is simply the best! She has sung BGV's on 3 of my songs & I plan to have her sing on all of my songs. She provides many options to choose from, understands what the song needs & is very adept at providing all the tracks in a professional manner. I HIGHLY recommend Amber!
Amber, is great. I keep going back again and again because she is Just that good.
Amber is professional and always does an excellent job. Way to go, Amber. You rock
It has truly been a pleasure working with Amber Sweeney. She is not only very professional but very helpful with her suggestions and input. Amber has made my song come to life with her rich, soulful voice. She has made my experience
like a dream come true. Thank you so much Amber.
I can't imagine anything Amber couldn't sing!! Her adaptation to the material is uncanny. She has done two very different songs for me and the vocals capture the feel of each song to perfection. Amber is intelligent and conscientious in both interpretation of vocals and her communication. Couldn't ask for more!!
Great vocalist to work with. She gets it! Definitely more projects in the future!
Well what can one say about this lady, Amber is probably one of the BEST if not the BEST soulful singers i have ever had the fortune of using on my tracks. Amber has that rich soulful sound that penetrates through you like silk,her range is also unbelievable.I will definitely be using Amber again for my production :) JazzyD
Amber is AMAZING! She delivered vocals which are better than I expected after having tried for months to get someone to sing a song in a particular way. Her harmonies are fantastic and she takes direction and interprets extremely well. The stems delivered were of high quality with impeccable mic technique.. No popping, or proximity issues :)
with all the contents that she gave to me was very easy to finish my work , she is an very professional singer and writer , and she also surprised me with an special guitar ,that was send with the vocals. i'm in love with her voice
thanks Dear Amber thanks so much .
She is GENIUS !
I am lucky to find her.
Her Divine Voice in my song " A Peaceful Christmas" was perfect match.
I hope, that she agrees to sing my other songs.
Not only is Amber an amazing singer, she is a pleasure to work with. She took the song to another level for us. Her voice is soulful and powerful. Don't hesitate to choose her for your project, you will be very pleased. Thanks again Amber! CB
super professional creative and sweet person! great voice and soul...
Amber is an AMAZING vocalist! She was so easy to work with. Listened to what I wanted and sent back a perfect vocal. I highly recommend Amber and will be working with her again :).
Amber Sweeney is an exceptional singer with a unique, intimate quality to her voice. Her lead and harmony vocals absolutely transformed my song into a special and memorable track which will no doubt be the best of my new album. Amber is a joy to work with, and handled the vocal production details with ease and charm. Best of the best!
Amber is an amazing talent, it was a blessing to work with her, most of all she was down to earth and went the extra mile to give me what I was looking for!!!
Amber took a song that I was really used to hearing in a certain way and made it her own while still remaining true to the original. I love the voice and feeling she put into it. Super friendly as well.
Not only does Amber have a great voice, and is professional, she had an uncanny ability to translate the vision I had. She also evoked the exact emotion I wanted in the vocal arrangement, and even more with her own flare. Her work is industry level.
Amber has a great voice and is awesome to work with. She delivered very high quality vocal tracks and was receptive of all revisions and suggestions. Very professional and highly recommended.
Amber in every area was just brilliant to work with. Her vocals are excellent and it's really refreshing to find some one with so many qualities.
I can't give her enough praise for the performance she delivered for me.
Interview with Amber Sweeney
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Geoff Ott is an amazing producer, mixer, engineer. He and I have worked on a number of projects, one of which is a new album that's going to be released in January 2017. If you're looking for someone to produce/mix/master your music, head straight over to his page, and let him help make sure your songs are the best they can be! Also, if you're in need of some bad-ass horns, I highly recommend Danny Flam of NewYorkBrass! He's a brilliant player/arranger. If you want quality, look for both Geoff Ott and Danny Flam.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I do a lot of R&B Hooks, EDM Top-Line Melodies and vocals, and rock/pop stuff.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Singing. Ha. I know it may seem obvious, but my strength lies in my voice and the ability to tell a story with it.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring emotion to each song. They each have a unique story to tell, and I do my best to make sure I'm telling that story in the way each client envisions it coming out of the speakers, and into your ears.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically, I like to listen to the song a few times, and get a feel for what my clients are after by listening to what they've already done. Once I can feel the song, then I get to work singing. I'll sing the song once through from top to bottom, and then go back and take it in sections, reviewing each section and comping along the way. After I feel satisfied that I've capture the emotion and tone, I'll do a final critical listen in order to make sure there aren't any hidden gems in other layers, or perhaps a note or phrase that could sit better with the rest of the song. Then I send an MP3 of what I've done to the client for them to give me feedback before bouncing down stems to send them. If any changes are requested, I'll make them, and then get a final approval and send off their shiny new vocals.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most of the work I do with my clients involves singing their pre-written melodies and lyrics, as well as partnering with them to write melodies, lyrics, and even harmonies.
