Experienced high-quality singer with great communication & fast delivery. I've done 100+ songs professionally since September 2018. I specialize in pop/EDM music. You should consider hiring me because I'm a ProTools user-certified professional, so I always record with the full production in mind. Looking forward to making magic with you!

My style is heavily influenced by Pop artists such as Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Tove Lo, Zara Larrson, and more. I can sing almost any genre but my voice is most suited for Pop and EDM. Please keep this in mind when ordering my service. If you're unsure about my voice on your track, please send me a message and I'm happy to try a sample!

I do not offer songwriting or topline creation.

I OFFER:
Main Vocals - Main vocals of a song or jingle less than 5 minutes (includes backing vocals)
Edited/Comped Vocals - I will comp my vocal takes to ensure perfection, remove empty noises & breaths between phrases, and apply any needed noise removal for crystal clean delivery.
Harmonies & Adlibs - Tasteful embellishments throughout the song.

MY RANGE - My absolute lowest note is G2 and my absolute highest (falsetto) is G6. If your song contains anything higher or lower than these notes you will need to look for a different singer or be open to melodic alterations. For a great sample of my range, check out my cover of Dancing With The Devil: https://youtu.be/8pIEW11kXMg

MY SETUP:
Focusrite ISA One (preamp)
Warm Audio WA-2A (compressor)
Focusrite Clarett (interface)
Aston Origin (microphone)
ProTools 12 (DAW)

Feel free to send me a message before ordering if you have any questions about my service! Thank you for your time, I hope to work with you soon!

    Claire is a great person to work with.
    She has a terrific voice , very much the sound of today. She is also a total professional who responds quickly to feed back and makes any adjustments required.
    She sang an up tempo pop track for me and moved the whole song up a gear to a different level.

Interview with Claire

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

  2. A: I collaborated on a Pop/Stars cover on Youtube. It has 800k+ views. I sang as the part of Madison Beer (Evelynn) and it was a lot of fun. Probably the highest quality project I've ever worked on. I've made several K/DA covers on my own, including covering their entire All Out EP. I learned so much about mixing doing that project and a lot of people really loved how it came out.

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

  4. A: I've been singing since I was a kid. I wanted to be a superstar but I discovered session-singing last year and realized it was a much more comfortable lifestyle for me. Currently I work retail fulltime and do music parttime. I've been operating on another website like this since September 2018 and already have worked with 30+ clients and completed 50+ songs. I would love to make this my fulltime job.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I converted my closet into a "booth" so I record on a Aston Origin microphone (with the nice SwiftShield popfilter). My preamp is the Focusrite ISA One into a Warm Audio WA-2A hardware compressor and my audio interface is the Focusrite Clarett. I operate exclusively in ProTools 12.7

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

  8. A: Trying to transition to singing fulltime. Until then, I'll be working on covers and other hired work!

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: For live sound, analog boards are easier for me to operate. For recording, digital because it's what I use haha!

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

  12. A: I will do my best to deliver your dream result.

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

  14. A: It's always fun to sing new songs. I find it makes me a better singer. Plus recording all the time is good practice as I get quicker & quicker each time.

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

  16. A: Do I require royalties? The answer is NO :D I do NOT require royalties as my service is a work-for-hire.

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

  18. A: At my dayjob, most people ask me if I perform so I have to explain the difference between a performing artist and a session artist haha

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

  20. A: I like to know what preferences you have for this project such as tone, style, file formats, adlibs, FX, or anything else important. My biggest struggle sometimes is when the client doesn't fully inform me on what they want. In order to save time for both parties, it's important to be 100% clear and confident on what you want!

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

  22. A: Just make sure you have a clear reference track and instrumental. Session-singers don't care what you sound like. A lot of clients I've had were shy about their performance on the reference but we don't mind! You hire us for a reason ;)

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Pop all the way. I love doing runs and hitting high-notes because it sounds good and is fun!

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

  26. A: Probably Bebe Rexha or Olivia Obrien. They write a lot of their own music and I feel like a session with either of them would be so awesome to experience.

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

  28. A: Use input-monitoring!! So many vocalists don't use it... It's imperative you hear what you sound like on the recording WHILE you're recording!

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

  30. A: Pop. Whenever I'm not working on music for others, I really love learning and recording pop covers.

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: Probably my pitch. I get asked a lot if I used any pitch-correction on my roughdraft takes, haha! As I mentioned in another question above, I edit all of my takes and cut them together to create one great take, no FX required.

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

  34. A: I don't offer writing technically but vocally I have fun with the project (if you let me haha!) My pop-influences help me add cool runs that may be hard for other singers. Of course I can't perfectly mimic another singer (such as Ariana Grande) but I'd consider myself versatile enough to match the style/performance. My biggest concern is making sure my client is happy with the final product.

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

  36. A: Import all the reference tracks, set up the tempo/grid, place markers at phrase beginnings, and then loop record chunks of the song. I record 5-10 takes and then edit the best ones together. This creates the best natural take (no pitch-correction) while still sounding seamless.

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

  38. A: Powerhouse pop vocalists greatly inspire me. I grew up loving Demi Lovato and despite her personal struggles she still continues to be an icon for me. Ariana Grande is a big role-model for me too. I would love to one day follow the steps of Bebe Rexha, Julia Michaels, Sia, etc of being a session-singer long enough to become an artist but until then I'll happily be at home recording your music! :)

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

  40. A: Mostly some form of electronic or pop. That's mostly the type of music I listen to or sing along with at home so it's definitely my style when I record.
