The result: Shaggy Soldiers ft. Mary Sweet - Running From Everything
It was a pleasure working with Mary! Very professional , beautiful voice and great lyrics. She delivered every idea I had, and I really couldn't ask for more. I am looking forward to working with Mary again!
Working with Mary has been an absolute pleasure! She has a beautiful voice, is extremely professional & dedicated to delivering top-notch results, you can’t ask for more from a producer’s perspective. The stems she provided are extremely rich with lots of layers, harmonies and little extras that I didn’t even think of. Communication with her is easy and friendly. She even took the time to hop on two phone calls to thoroughly discuss the song and vocals. I'd highly recommend working with Mary!
Working with Mary was fantastic! Very talented and understanding and committed to the work.
Mary is a diamond that glitter brighter than most in this line of work. She have rare ability to both sing beautiful and the gift to craft vocal melodies. I hope to work with her again soon.
Great to work with. Easy communication, great songwriting and perfect vocals for the track
Working with Mary was an amazing experience. Not only is her voice beautiful but her songwriting is impeccable. Mary really cares about the project and will work with you until both of you are satisfied. Highly recommend!
Mary is a real top notch singer and songwriter. She's a real perfectionist with a keen eye for detail that really helped to bring the song to life. I will definitely be working with her again in the future.
An amazing and professional vocalist. I always enjoy working with her as I know I'll get top quality vocals and lyrics. Very easy to communicate with and she always does her best to give you the vocals you want.
Mary was a pleasure to work with. Very easy going and such a talented person. Would definitely recommend to any producer or composer. - Kian Tony
Track Title: High Tide - Kian Tony (ft. Mary Sweet)
Mary helped my song take the leap from having potential, to being great. She's a genius at writing and she was excited to try all the changes and ideas I had for both the lyrics and the track. Her vocal performance speaks for itself!
If you're looking for an EDM vocalist that can take your song to the next level, hire Mary!
Mary is amazing! Her vocals are phenomenal. Really emotional and angelic as she describes them! Everything she does is really professional. If you want to step up the level of your song she is your key to that.
Interview with Mary Sweet
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on releasing my first EP under my artist name, eress!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: 1. Will you write lyrics and sing vocals for free? Answer: That depends; you can always ask! 2. Will you sing my pre-written lyrics? Answer: In short, no. No set of lyrics is perfect, and being a music producer means you need to be open to feedback. If a producer isn't interested in my feedback on the lyrics they've written, I have no interest in singing them. I always ask if the client is open to revisions, and if they aren't, I usually won't sing their lyrics.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Do you have lyrics and/or vocal melody already written? If so, are you okay with revisions? Is there a particular theme you envision for this track? Do you have a deadline for this track? What is your budget? What is your plan for royalties?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is that I'm in this for money. I'm not. I'm working on my portfolio and building my network, and a side perk of that is the occasional paid gig. If I was all about finances, I would have turned down many projects that ended up being very successful. It's about quality and quantity.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Alan Walker. My voice fits his sound perfectly, so I'd love to write and sing for him. I'd want to see how he works in the studio and get his tips for my own music!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: EDM, chill, future bass, melodic dubstep, future house. I work in a wide range of EDM sub-genres. I've also recently started working in hip-hop!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Creativity, originality, and the ability to dance around a cliché without being cliché. With over 10 years of experience writing lyrics and a degree in English language and literature, I have an eye for eloquence.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically, a client will send me a finished or near-finished track that needs vocals. I'll give the client a time estimate for both starting and finishing the project. Once I get started, I'll send over a short demo to show the client my idea for both lyrics and vocals. When the client gives me the "thumbs-up," I finish the project over the next 2-8 days with updates every couple of days or so. I always ask questions and check in!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I record on a RØDE NT1-A condenser microphone into Logic Pro X. Along with other professional equipment like a Novation Launchkey MIDI keyboard, studio speakers and headphones, and my own expertise, I can make clear and beautiful music from my home studio.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Artists like Jonas Blue, Jim Yosef, TheFatRat, and Alan Walker are my biggest inspirations when it comes to vocals and my own compositions. I write a lot of lyrics that fit the mainstream EDM sphere, and I like to add a bit of complexity that makes people think.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I typically write lyrics and record vocals for each client. I create all of the melodies, harmonies, and ad libs myself; I can work with pre-written melodies at the client's request.
