I'm new here too Soundbetter but I'm a full-time singer who appreciates tuned vocals and can get your vocal tuning, comping, and editing needs done!

Hey! I'm Michelle! Originally from Toronto, Ontario Canada but I now live in Nashville, TN! I received my Bachelor's degree in Music - Vocal Jazz - from Humber College back in 2015 and then I moved to Nashville right after and graduated from The Blackbird Academy - A recording engineering program/school run by John McBride (Country Star/artist, Martina McBride's Husband) and I would love to help you with all your vocal project needs!

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

  14. A: Will you be my first customer? :(

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

  16. A: "I'm a singer so I must not know how to record/tune my own vocals or build a track..." "insert roll-eye emoji here"

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

  18. A: Do you need all 3 services from me (Vocal Tuning, Comping, & Editing)? Or do you just need 1 or 2 of the 3 services I provide?

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

  20. A: Google them! If they are not easily googleable, I would question their service! Also, listen to what they are claiming to help you with!

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: Assuming this island has electric power...my acoustic guitar, my apollo twin, my computer, an XLR, and an SM57.

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

  24. A: I've been doing music since I was 10 years old! I took singing lessons, piano lessons, guitar lessons, took every music course in high school that was offered and then I eventually went to college to pursue my music education further! Now, I'm living in Nashville and trying to build my network within the Music Business!

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: As an artist/writer, I would describe myself as a Soul/Pop/R&B style! I've got some of my own music on my website if you are interested!

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

  28. A: Sara Bareilles because I admire her authenticity and her songwriting! I would also love to work with Allen Stone because of his soulfulness and writing as well! Too many to choose from!

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

  30. A: I'm a fan of riding the chorus' to make them sound "bigger" in the final mix!

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

  32. A: Pop, R&B, Soul, & Country!

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: I would say singing is my strongest skill but I also write music and can build basic tracks!

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

  36. A: I like to think I bring authenticity to a song and something that wasn't there before!

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

  38. A: I'm a kind of "go-with-the-flow" kind of person when it comes to creating and my work process.
