Vocalist and professional songwriter
After spending time in the historic music city of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, I've grown my craft into something unique. Along with my own personal music releases, I've spent time in studios adding vocals to various projects. Singing is something I love that I've done since before I could talk. Your project won't be just a job to me, it will be something filled with heart.

Interview with Kat Elizabeth
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently working on a series of EPs coming up that I'm excited about! The one good thing about quarantine is that I was able to hone in my producing skills, so I'm excited for that! I freelance a lot as well, and those projects are always fun too!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love to see a client's idea come together. To start with a song from scratch, making it into a client's vision is such a great feeling
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Do you write lyrics? Currently I don't offer a lyric writing service!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don't be afraid to ask questions if you don't understand something! I'm a pretty chill gal. The music industry can feel pretty cutthroat sometimes, and I never want my client to feel intimidated just because they may not know something.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Varispeed for vocal layering changed my life
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Americana, indie pop, indie rock, and neo soul are the genres I typically work in, though I'm open to most genres and have a background in classical and theatrical music as well!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I've been singing since childhood, and have developed a really good ear for harmonies
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Having a background in production really helps me hear both technical and arrangement tricks that can enhance a vocal performance!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually break the songs into sections and do a rough vocal through. I'll then polish that vocal and double it. After that I work on harmonies and ad-lib pats as needed for the project, then I double track those as well.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a home studio set-up. Logic Pro is my current DAW, and I have a Scarlett interface. I use an SM7b for most projects, but I also have an apex condenser mic.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Jordan Rakei did a song production series on YouTube that I got OBSESSED with! I learned so much from that series, and became more confident and efficient in Logic Pro.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I deliver emotional melody lines and can create complimentary harmonies and vocal fills to fit any project type.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: The ability to collaborate and work efficiently in digital is something that can't be beat, but there is a certain kind of magic in analog recording that can't be replicated.
