Creative music and sound design for film and television.
Nice to meet you!! My name is Jen Pague and I’m an LA based sound designer, composer, and songwriter. Originally from the east coast, I grew up outside Philadelphia eating cheesesteaks and hoagies. After graduating from Temple University, I started a band called Vita and the Woolf. We toured the US, Canada, + Europe for a few years and released a couple albums, and whoops, I ended up in Los Angeles somehow. My good friend Louis Wes recommended I try my hand at sound design/music for motion graphics and here I am! The past couple years I've had the opportunity to work with some amazing folks like, Gunner, Hornet, and Work and Co. to name a few. I’ve worked on projects for clients such as Bath and Bodyworks, Skull Candy, and Mutual of Omaha.
My music has been featured in media outlets such as, Billboard, Elle magazine, USA Today, Nylon, Audiotree, Daytrotter, and NPR.

Jennifer is a fantastic vocal talent and a very creative lyric writer to boot. I love her contemporary approach which in my opinion sets her apart from her peers. Looking forward to working with Jennifer again, couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
An awesome voice! and a job very well done, very professional.
Once again, Jen came in and rocked the house, able to take a small piece of direction and turn it into a big piece of vocal power. Thanks, Jen!

Interview with Jen Pague
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: That's easy! 1. Laptop 2. Apollo 3. Prophet 4. Headphones 5. Microphone
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've always wanted to do music. Ever since I was 6 years old, I knew I was going to pursue music. I started playing piano at age 7. I've been singing since I was a very very young human. By the time I was 15, I had performed at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and sang onstage with Jon Anderson of Yes. After going to school for sound production, I started my band, Vita and the Woolf and immediately began touring at age 22. I've been lucky to have toured the world with my good friends playing the music I wrote. I moved to LA in 2018 and have been working as a music producer/vocal topliner full time ever since. The community and work I get from Soundbetter help pay for the production and touring expenses for my band. I'm very lucky and grateful.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I'm a mix between Florence Welch and Sia. I really love Pop and Electronic music, but I also really appreciate a softer tone as well.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I feel like I would work really well with James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem. I'm a huge huge fan of his work and he's one of my biggest inspirations not only as an artist but as a human. His story is fascinating and inspiring since this industry can be really difficult sometimes.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I think it's very important to take time to reflect and not over work a song. Often times, giving a creative project space and time can be your biggest tool in music production and songwriting.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Electronic and Pop music are the main styles I am hired to work on from Soundbetter's community.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I have one of those "belty" voices. I grew up trying to emulate Alicia Keys and Mariah Carey, so if you're looking for a huge vocal in a chorus, you've come to the right place. I also have ten years experience recording and producing vocals.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring that extra warmth you are looking for. That bang at the chorus! I have a very wide vocal range and am very versatile across styles.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When writing a vocal topline, I record the first verse and first chorus initially, sending the stems over to the client for approval. Once the vibe is down, we go ahead and finish the rest of the song. Depending on how involved the project is as well as the response rate of the client, I can usually have a song finished within a few days.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I record using Ableton or ProTools. I have an Apollo Twin Quad as well as dozens of Universal Audio Plugins. I sing into an AKG 414 condenser microphone, and mix on a pair of Yamaha NS10's. I have a Prophet Rev 2 synth, a Nord Lead 2 synth, and the Native Instruments Komplete 12 sound library.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm really inspired by Bjork, Florence and the Machine, Radiohead, and Chvrches. Recently though, i've been listening to a lot of Phoebe Bridgers and Big Thief.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly sing on electronic/pop music, however have done some more acoustic type jobs.
