Amanda Dean on SoundBetter

I'm a vocalist/songwriter/music producer and multi instrumentalist from Vancouver, B.C. Canada. I have over 25 years of studio and live performance experience, have sang on stage with the band Toto and performed the National Anthem for every major sports team in BC. I was signed at the age of 16 to an independent record label in the UK.

I can provide stunning lead and/or background vocals for your project in any genre, but I specialize in R&B and rock. I have a 4 and a half octave range (my vocal range is similar to artists like Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston). I am easily able to arrange and multitrack harmonies, be it a simple pop song or a full choir. I use pro gear to record, including a Universal Audio Apollo interface and a Warm Audio WA-87 condenser microphone (similar to a Neumann U-87)

I can also provide vocal arranging/pitch correction services
