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.

Interview with Aika Zabala
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
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.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
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.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on pop, EDM, hip-hop, and indie. My rare gem is my Broadway music style.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
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.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
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.
Q: What's your typical work process?
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!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
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.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My roots come from musical theater, but my pop artist inspirations include the styles of Taylor Swift and Dua Lipa.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common genre that I record lead and back-up vocals for is pop.
