Aika Zabala on SoundBetter

Versatility is my game. Whether you need lead or backup, whether it's pop, jazz, or hip-hop — I've got you covered.

From the childhood habit of singing with hairbrush mics, an enthusiasm for music evolved into a career built on passion for singing.

Throughout 10 years of experience and training in voice lessons and musical theater workshops, I've honed a constant desire to grow and expand my horizons as an artist. With roots in musical theater, I pay outstanding attention to emotion in my delivery, along with good vocal technique and enunciation. This is tweaked and customized according to the different genres I specialize in — pop, jazz, alternative rock, indie, hip-hop — in order to make sure that your song has its own unique and special sound.

    Aika is a very talented and naturally gifted vocalist. I can hear that she has also been well trained on top of that. I don't think she realises how good she is. She is easily as good as vocalists that charge many times as much. Go check out her youtube stuff and see what I mean. Also, in an age where auto-tuning is standard she gave me unprocessed stems - all natural. They were a joy to work with. She kept me updated all the way. I would love to work with her again.

    Aika did a fantastic job and we worked together to get the vocals how I wanted them to fit in my tune. She is a very versatile singer and has an abundant knowledge of lead, harmony, and adlib techniques. I will ask her to sing on my next tunes too.

    Having worked with numerous singers before, I must say that I am absolutely blown away by Aika’s voice, talent, and versatility. Not only is she an incredible singer, she also is an amazingly talented artist with an uncanny ability to feel, interpret, and express the soul of a song. I honestly could not have hoped for a better partner to work on my songs. If there is any common sense in this world, then Aika will be a big name in the music industry and she will hit the big stages very soon.

    Working with Aika was pure joy. Her voice is stunning, perfect pitch, outstanding range, and her ability to sing in many styles was especially useful to my project. Aika's professionalism is superb, and she regularly kept me appraised of the status of her recordings. She completed everything on time per my request, and the technical quality of the tracks was flawless the first time. I strongly recommend Aika for any vocal project including even the most demanding or complex. I'll be back!

Interview with Aika Zabala

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I recorded the vocals for a song called B U NIQ, written and produced by Vivid Story. It's a K-POP inspired track in Tagalog, with some English verses (https://soundcloud.com/tlburt17/b-u-niq). It got featured on the 14th episode of "Grandfathered", a US TV series starring John Stamos.

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

  4. A: Music is my first love. I've been training and honing my talent for 10 years. My career mainly involves my voice as I am a full-time freelance singer, actress, voice-over artist and dubber.

  5. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  6. A: I usually work on pop, EDM, hip-hop, and indie. My rare gem is my Broadway music style.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: Adaptability. Give me any genre (except heavy metal — I'm not trained in scream vocals) and I will tweak and "shape-shift" according to the style, all while preserving my unique voice.

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

  10. A: I bring emotion and clarity. Not only do I give importance to technique and perfect pitch — I also make sure I capture the meaning and essence of the song.

  11. Q: What's your typical work process?

  12. A: Once I receive my clients' files (instrumental/s, lyrics, vocal guide, and artist reference/s if desired), I record the vocals and send it for approval. I ask for feedback and discuss suggestions and changes that can be made to further polish the sound, until my clients are 100% satisfied!

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: I have a home studio set-up; the gear I use for recording is a RODE NT1 Microphone (with a pop filter and mic stand) and a Scarlett 6i6 audio interface.

  15. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  16. A: My roots come from musical theater, but my pop artist inspirations include the styles of Taylor Swift and Dua Lipa.

  17. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  18. A: The most common genre that I record lead and back-up vocals for is pop.
