Gabbi Coenen on SoundBetter

Hi! I'm a jazz-trained singer, songwriter, pianist, bassist, producer and arranger with over 10 years experience in the studio and onstage; originally from Australia, I'm now based in NY and LA. If you need warm, emotive lead vocals, lush backing harmonies, or a catchy topline, delivered with precision and professionalism, hit me up!

I have a BFA and a BMus from The New School for Jazz and the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts. I have sung on a variety of demo tracks for leading commercial music houses, in a range of styles such as electronic pop, folk, indie rock, gospel, jazz and classical. I lead the Brooklyn-based indie trip-hop band RVBY MY DEAR, of which I am the primary songwriter, singer and arranger. My sound and songs have been compared to Lana Del Rey, Liz Fraser of Massive Attack, Beth Gibbons of Portishead, London Grammar, Daughter, Fiona Apple and Bjork. I am also a soprano with the contemporary classical vocal ensemble Khorikos.

Contact me through the green button above and lets get to work.

  1. Review by Paul S.

    Gabbi is a phenomenal talent with versatility and a great timbre. I gave her very little guidance outside of the lyrics and she nailed it. Revisions were minimal, and more just experimentation than "corrections". Extremely happy with the outcome and this partnership. Good communicator--understood where I was going and got things super fast.

  2. Review by Vaughan D.

    We've collaborated with several commissioned session performers but Gabbi is unquestionably the best sounding and most professional singer we've found. From the beginning, with her spot-on demo recording, it was clear that she doesn't just sing a track, she has that much sought-after ability to interpret. Her voice ranges from raw and intense to crystalline and tender. Open to feedback and eager, Gabbi is wonderful to work with through the whole process - get her now before she's on the Top 20!

  3. Review by Justin C.

    Gabbi was amazing, her voice and pitch is great, did exactly what I asked for, would hire again!

  4. Review by Tarek B.

    Amazing singer and excellent musician! A hidden gem of the site, she is incredible. Thank you Gabbi!

  5. Review by Rob Karpay

    Super easy to work with. Has an excellent music theory background. Always comes more than prepared. Performed beautifully and flawlessly. She's become my go-to for everything from voiceover to backing vocals. Every single note in her vocal performance has purpose and conviction. She sings with technical proficiency as well as artistry. Would highly recommend for collaborative work as well gigs.

  6. Review by Michael (hunter & wolfe)

    Gabbi is a total pro.

    I'm pretty tough on session players, but Gabbi does an incredible job of understanding what delivery I'm looking for - and her execution is PERFECT. I just had her in for some vocal harmonies. She came in prepared and knocked them out on. the. first. take. Cadence, pitch, feel. When you're in a studio and time is money, what more can you ask?
