Lena rocks! Really cared about the vocals, understood my vision, and executed so everything well. Super nice too! Thanks!
Very professional and nice to work with :)
Lena is an absolute master when it comes to tuning vocals!! Will be returning :)
It was great working with Lena, her vocal production of my raw stems came out better than I could have asked for! She was easy to communicate with and quickly made a few revisions to get the right sound I was looking for. Will work with her again in the future!
Lena is amazing to work with !
Can’t wait to work with her again 👍
Lena has been great the whole way through - she's coached me, given me solid vocal comps, and is helping me bring my music up a level to a place I'm proud of. Highly recommend working with her.
Lena is the best! She is super talented, detail-oriented, and communicative. She will help bring your track to the next level!
Lena is incredibly talented and a true professional! I had an absolute blast working with her and can't wait to do it again soon!
Amazing!! Lena did a such beautiful job with tuning our vocals. Can't wait to work with her again! Super quick and clear with communication as well! Highly recommend.
Leena was fantastic! Clear with her personal deadlines and came through right on time. Vocals sound extremely clear, FX were stellar and used perfectly to fit the track.
I would definitely work with Leena again, here's to the next one :)
Super awesome work ^_^
Lena was super helpful the whole way through and did an amazing job at mixing my song. I’ll definitely be working with her again
Such a nice & talented lady, a true professional who kept me up-to-date and who was very transparent about her work & timing. Not a single false promise with me, only great results, fast returns and met expectancies. I'm over the moon to have found someone who is so approachable yet so proficient at what she does. Would work again with her any day!
Easy to work with and great communication!
Great mix, great communication, I am happy with my mix, what more could I want?! Thank you Lena!
Lena is unbelievably talented. She killed it! She turned my vocals into exactly what I was looking for! Looking forward to working together again!
Lena took my vocals from pretty good to well past my expectations. I sent her notes for how I wanted the mix to sound and she delivered the raw acoustic sound I was looking for while still doing some much needed pitch correction and editing. If you're looking for someone to mix your vocals she's a perfect candidate. She's a singer herself and has great pitch so I didn't really need to give much instruction. She was also incredibly patient and kept making revisions until I was very happy with it.
Lena is amazing! We had a very tricky vocal that really needed to get done right, and Lena absolutely knocked it out of the park! Will absolutely work with her again!
Quick and quality job!
Did the job perfectly and made an alright track sound amazing!!! Would strongly recommend :)
Lena is phenomenal at everything she does in music. She has an ear for vocal production and mixing like no other. She's incredibly experienced and her discography speaks for itself. An absolutely wonderful person to work with!!
Interview with Lena Leon
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both! But you can do so much in the mixing process digitally these days!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: It makes me so happy when people say "thank you for caring about the vocals, so many people don't!" It's always been super important to me, and I'm glad when my clients leave feeling like a rockstar!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is your end goal with your vocal mix? Is there any artist or song you'd like your mix to sound like?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: We can only fix so much in post. Make sure the vocals sound as good as they possibly can before you hand them to a mixer! Any hum, or hiss or background noise is really tough to remove!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've definitely had a bumpy road in the business. I've been doing vocal mixing for 15 years, and it's tough for a female to prove their worth in a male dominated world, but I'm glad I didn't have it easy. Forced me to work my tail off to prove my worth! ;)
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Clean and radio ready!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, EDM, Folk, Funk, R&B. I've really done it all!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Vocal mixing and production.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Too many people don't care about the vocal mix, and it's SUCH an important part of the process! The vocalist wants to feel like a star, and I think that's why people want to work with me! I can make the vocals sound record-label ready.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I discuss with the client what they're looking for, then spend tedious hours editing and making sure everything is perfect.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I'm an in-the-box mixer, which means it's a home studio setup, but I can get the quality as good as some of the top studios out there!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Everyone who makes music does (it takes courage) but I'm a particular fan of Max Martin and everything that he and his team have worked on!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Vocal Mixing, Vocal Editing (Comping and Tuning), Vocal Background and Harmony Arrangement
