Shelley H on SoundBetter

Over 40 Million Spotify & Youtube Streams. Multi-skilled expert singer/songwriter. Emotionally driven top quality vocals. Songs featured on many film/tv shows. I’ve written for Grammy Award winning producers & artists all over the globe. I work in all genres and I pay attention to detail to deliver the best result for you.

I've been recording vocals and writing songs for many years. I LOVE what I do and I love working with creative people from all over the world. I work across all genres and styles and can adjust my tone from soft and fragile through to belting to fit your project description. Various vocal styles can be found here on my profile page.

I'm a great communicator with a fast turn around time. I use a Studio Projects C1 Condenser Microphone OR a Rhode NT2 with a Scarlett Focusrite pre-amp in Logic Pro. I like to use CLA wave Plugins for playback but will deliver quality dry 24bit 48k.wav files.

I’m versatile, patient and will listen carefully so we can collaborate to achieve your desired outcome.

Where possible I will try to get sync opportunities for the songs I create with my film/tv connections (Universal, BMG, EMI, Netflix, Spotify Headquarters, Disney and more)

Pricing varies depending on the project please contact me to discuss.

Songwriting/Topline: please contact for pricing

No features unless discussed.

Once we start your project I’ll send you a rough mix for your approval and do one round of revisions for free if needed, (revisions are small edits) then once you approve the job and release funds, I will send all stems.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap. Let's create something amazing!!!

    Shelley is a 10 out of 10. Has surpassed my expectations with every song I've sent her. So easy and fun to work with. The only thing that might shine brighter than her vocals is her fantastic personality

    My songs just won't be the same without Shelley's touch...
    She not only provides the soul for my music - she is highly professional and a breeze to work with.

    It’s my 2nd time working with Shelley and it was a breeze. I had a rough idea for lyrics for a song that I wanted polished up (my writing sounded cheesy) and she wrote some magnificent lyrics for me in the exact manner I wanted. Will definitely work with her again!

    Shelley did an amazing job writing lyrics to and singing this song, even though it was a completely different style to what we normally do.

    It was once again a pleasure to work with Shelley!

    She has a great sense for realizing the musical ideas.
    Her voice is just great and her work is super professional. The communication is always great as well.

    I can't imagine a better singer for my EDM songs.

    Shelley is an incredible singer and songwriter. She did the lead and back vocals for us for an upcoming movie. The result was over the top. I can recommend Shelley 1000% when it comes to the highest quality, kindness, speed, great collaboration and most importantly passion for music. Thanks again Shelley!!!

    Shelley never ceases to amaze me with her natural talent! This song was very different as it had words in a different language and not only did she sing it beautifully, she nailed it on the first time! Shelley continuously models high performance and I absolutely love collaborating with her.
    Thank you, Shelley!!

    Shelley always amazes me with brilliant songwriting. The concept of the lyrics perfectly matched the spirit of the song, and the lyrics are perfectly crafted to match the melodies I have given her. It is always so exciting to hear what she came up with. She makes the process so simple, and always happy and open to make changes based on the feedback.

    Another absolutely stunning, heartfelt and passionate vocal performance by Shelley, combined with all the majestic harmonies and ad-libs she adds to give the song extra depths and layers. Beautiful and soulful, can’t recommend highly enough.

    Not only did Shelley accommodate last minute changes, she delivered two day earlier than asked and the quality of her vocals is immaculate. Couldn't be more pleased.

Interview with Shelley H

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

  2. A: I really enjoy seeing my song send up in film/tv - it will never stop amazing me that something i've created now can reach the ears of millions through screen. It's a really satisfying moment. Having said that I also absolutely love working on personal songs with clients - Anniversary songs, Valentines, Apology songs... it's so nice to be able to help people with that.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I'm constantly working on songs for film/tv and other artists. My clients keep me busy in a variety of genres and I love my work!

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Yes! In particular some producer/mixers as well as an incredible guitar player and drummer. Please ask me and I will direct you to who will best suit your project.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Analog... I love 'real'... there is an energy that is transferred to another the less a 'moment' is interfered with. I love real vocals, nothing auto-tuned. Something that reached the soul.

  9. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  10. A: Can you make something great! Yes I can :)

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

  12. A: I have been in music for many years - I have been signed to Sony, BMG, Chrysalis and Nettwork. I was actually sitting on a subway in NY when someone discovered my music. I've written songs that have been released all over the world on albums and on tv shows and films. I love the connections I have made with people that have become great friends!

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: Real, authentic and emotive, quality...

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

  16. A: I like to sketch melody ideas while listening out loud on my NS10's and then once I have a basic concept of verse, pre, chorus and bridge I jump in my vocal booth and lay down a melodic vocal guide. After that I begin sketching lyrics. Often i've found that somewhere in the primal melody I laid down the story already resides...

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: I use a Rhode NT2 mic and I like to use CLA wave plugins for playback. I always deliver high quality, organised dry wav files at the end of a session. My studio also has endless Guitars & Amps, Ukulele's and a beautiful Bluthner Upright Grand piano. I work in Logic Audio

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

  20. A: The Smiths, Radiohead, Stevie Wonder, GoGo Penguin, Kate Bush, Prince, Billie Holiday, Bjork, Lamb

  21. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  22. A: A quality product, a friendly collaborator with great communication. Easy exchange of ideas and files, no ego, fun creativity.

  23. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  24. A: I live to create, I couldn't breathe without it. I love everything about creating music in all styles and sharing that magic with my collaborator (client).

  25. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  26. A: Just how hard I work... It sounds pretty breezy to be a singer but to stay in this business you have to work hard day in and day out!

  27. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  28. A: Can you send me some references to some released songs in the style you are looking for. Can you send me seperate files - Instrumental, vocal melody line, lyrics etc. Do you have a release plan or can I help you with that.

  29. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  30. A: Listen to my vocal reel to see what I can bring to your project, ask me questions - I can send through further references specific to your project. I will only accept the project if I know I can deliver what you are looking for.

  31. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  32. A: I would take my Laptop, Focusrite, Akai keyboard, Mic and Looper

  33. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  34. A: Don't edit out the breaths! Hearing the singer breathe enables you to feel so close and connected to the track, like you can touch the moment... sometimes raw wins...

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

  36. A: Pop, Dance, Ballad's, Electronic. I love it all! Anything from light and uplifting to dark, gritty and edgy.

  37. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  38. A: My vocal sound is unique and i'm told it sits there right alongside some of the best female vocalists out there. Writing melody is one of my favourite parts of the songwriting process. I get many comments about my melodic instinct.

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

  40. A: I deliver an authentic, connected and emotive vocal to every session I record. Having written and recorded songs for artists and film/tv for many years - I come up with extra ideas that would benefit the song to reach a wider audience and make your track stand out when it comes to radio.

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

  42. A: Clients commission me for vocals and songwriting in all genres. They know that I will provide an authentic, connected performance whether it's a stripped pop love song or a deep dark emotive song for trailer music.

  43. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  44. A: I've had the pleasure of working with incredible artists such as Elvis Costello & John Cale (Velvet Undergound) I have to say it would be pretty great to sing with Portishead and a live Orchestra!
