Lars worked his magic again, this time with flawless backing vocals on my progressive pop/rock song. His attention to detail and creative ideas really made the song shine. He's very timely, versatile and musical in every sense and style. Always a tremendous pleasure to work with Lars!
Lars knocked my song out perfectly, and directly took the direction and production idea I had in mind and nailed it, It was like magic how it simply transformed my idea into a final production that I am very happy with. Would not hesitate to do another project with him..
Once again, Lars delivered an outstanding set of vocal tracks for a complex arrangement with mixed genres. His flexibility and vocal range are stupendous, and his professionalism and musicianship are at an incredibly high caliber. Lars has a beautiful understanding about dynamics and styles, and can select the best singing style for every track. Always a pleasure and a privilege to work with him.
Second time i worked with Lars and the result speaks for it self. He is really easy and professional to work with and has the an incredible voice with so much range and a unique way of changing the sound of the voice. He makes the lyrics really come to life. Whatever you need, Lars is the man!!
I could be singing praises all over the world for this extraordinary talent! I wrote a song having Queen inspired harmonies in mind and when I heard Lars, I felt wow, he understands.. but I didn't know just how much he fully understood until we began working together! He delivered to me within 24 hours which was just a blessing beyond and he was the most easy and professional to work with.. I'm not just recommending him, I'm saying if you want STELLAR background vocals, go to Lars!
Once again, Lars delivered stellar work with unbelievably great harmony ideas. His vocal quality, originality, timeliness, excellent communications and friendly approach to work with were greatly appreciated.
Lars is pro in every aspect of the process and is really easy to work with. He absolutely understood what i was looking for and nailed it! Add to that his incredible voice and the range of it and you'll be more than happy! I asked Lars if he could do some ad libs on top of the lyrics/melody i wrote and it really elevated the song. I had high expectations coming in to this and they where exceeded by far! I will for sure 100% work with Lars again and i highly recommend his services!
I asked Lars to take on a pop/rock-ballad-type piece with some rather tricky chord and key changes. This was actually the first time I'd used a vocalist in this way for my songs working online, so I wasn't sure precisely what to expect, but I knew from the outset that Lars had the vocal character I wanted. Lars absolutely brought the song to a higher level with his outstanding harmony work, quick action and friendly, flexible attitude. Absolutely a pro in every sense of the word—awesome work!
The most incredible vocals sung by Lars!! He understood the task and worked extremely hard to deliver the very best vocals, within a super quick time-frame, always staying in tight contact with me throughout the project duration. Lars delivered high quality files of vocals that were just amazing. 100% most highly recommended and I honestly can't wait to work with him again!! Thank you, Lars!!
Good as always! Another song together done perfectly.
Lars is a champion vocalist. He has a huge range and knows how to use it. Highly, highly recommended! will use again.
Very talented singer with unique voice! That was a pleasure to work with this man!
Interview with Lars Edvall
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: All over the place. I have a stage persona for my personal voice, Sad Jack, but I'm well known for singing rock/pop with a slightly more forceful tone. Then there's another community in which I'm best known for popera/classic ballad-style singing.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: A song I recorded for Jeff Chapman. Really good song which I sang lead on and arranged and sang bv:s on in a (fast and) really satisfying way. Happy customer - happy me!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: An EP with a well-known Swedish artist, my own projects new release, some background music tracks for a repeat client and conducting a choir.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I've recorded a lot of stuff on 2" tape, but for practical purposes nowadays, digital always wins.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Endless supplies of food & beverage, a laptop, mic, interface and a guitar ... I'm really swift att clicking in piano parts without keyboard, but guitar is harder to emulate nicely.

A: Queen, Toto, Extreme, Max Martin
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Max Prime - for production of remixes or EDM stuff.

A: How free am I to interpret or come up with ideas? Is there any specific artist you want to mimic the feel of?

A: Mostly a carefully recorded and edited vocal package, expressing the feelings and style requested by the client. I usually suggest how background vocals can be made, present an idea to the client and then arrange.
