Aika Zabala on SoundBetter

Manila-based professional singer with years of experience, working for a diverse pool of musical artists. Whether it's pop, indie, or R&B, I've got you covered!

Throughout a decade of honing my skills through international collaborations, I've been committed to growing and expanding my horizons as an artist. With roots in musical theater, I pay outstanding attention to emotion, enunciation, and good technique.

I customize each project according to the different genres I specialize in — pop, jazz, alternative, indie, hip-hop, musical theater — and bring my own unique and special sound.

Upon working with various clients, my vocals have also been featured in music placements for US TV Shows, such as CSI (CBS), SEAL Team (CBS), Grandfathered (Fox), and Claws (TNT).

    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!
