Pilar Icazuriaga on SoundBetter

I'm a versatile bilingual multi-genre singer & topliner with 10 years of experience performing live and in studio. I'm passionate about exploring what the song needs and what will enhance it. I take every project with enthusiasm, creativity and responsibility.

Hi! I'm Pilar :)

I have a smooth and very versatile sound that goes great with indie/acoustic, pop/rock, jazz, latin, rap and electronic genres. I can go from airy mid-low dark/sexy timbres to bright and shiny. I'm ready to do your lead and backing vocals, help you harmonize and create melodies and lyrics for your songs.

I studied Singing Performance and Music Production in Escuela de Música Contemporánea (Berklee International Network in Buenos Aires). I've recorded/collaborated with several artists such as Cata Raybaud, Marcelo Sasso, Sol Mihanovich, Pyura (Argentina) and Jona Méndez (Colombia).

This is how it usually works:
- You message me and tell me what you're looking for. You may attach your song so I can listen to it right away!
- We talk and agree on the terms and once the project is funded, I start working.
- I send mp3 clips for your approval and feedback (first ones usually in less than a week).
- Once you are 100% happy with the results, I send you the dry vocals and you can release the payment.

I think communication is key to bring your ideas to life. I'm super friendly and flexible and will always be there to answer to any doubts as soon as I can :)

Vocals are recorded at my home studio [ Wunder FET U47 mic / Apollo Twin ]

    Pilar was great in delivering what I needed for my project - definitely will highlight her positive receptiveness to my feedback and how she was extremely professional with her work + really quick turn around. Thank you Pilar!

  2. Review by Verkevo

    Collaborating with Pilar is amazing! She has great communication skills, she's willing to get feedback and delivered high quality audios for a very particular project we are working on, she did it more than perfect. Highly recommended, I'll definitely work more projects with Pilar.

  3. Review by Murtaza A.

    It was a pleasure working with Pilar. I needed adlibs done. She was able to deliver exactly what I needed in terms of feel. She also gave me an additional version. Not to mention, she was 100% on pitch. Amazing talent!

  4. Review by Gareth Hughes

    First time user on Soundbetter and couldn't have worked with a better collaborator as an intro to the platform. Pilar provided all vocals, lead and harmonies, for an upbeat pop track. Her voice had the perfect tone for the track. She is highly professional, responsive, collaborative and provided great feedback to help arrange the track. She also has some great ideas on vocals overlays and was incredibly easy to work with. I would highly recommend.

    I can't say enough good things about Pilar. This was a rush job. Wanted to put together a song for a friend that past away unexpectedly last week. Viewing is tomorrow. Pilar made me feel like I was Pilar's only client. Pilar made me feel like I was top priority for the day. And the results? I can't say enough about them. Not some quick "good enough to get it done" job. Very professional all the way and the end product is amazing. This was my first experience hiring a topliner. I'll do it again.

  6. Review by Markus L.

  7. Review by Brian H.

    This is the second time I've worked with Pilar and it went just as smoothly as the first time. She's totally professional, has great musical instincts, quick turnaround, and of course a killer voice. Until next time!

    Had such a blast working with her on this song !
    She answers really fast and is very professional, can't recommend her enough !

  10. Review by Mathew M.

    Working with Pilar on my Italian song was an awesome experience! She was friendly, kept me informed, and provided helpful tips for recording my part. Her vocals were stunning and exactly what I was looking for in the female part, and she even organized live musicians—a piano and string quartet—that really brought the song to life. Her partner Rodrigo handled the production flawlessly. Pilar's talent, communication, and wonderful personality made collaborating a joy. Highly recommended!

    Pilar is amazing, the connection she has to her craft is so unique and so distinct . Her intuition behind her art is phenomenal and im very glad that we got to make a song together. Our song is called "Breathe of the wild" , and she put so much soul into it and I will 1000% be working with her again. Artists who are in tune with there craft such as pilar. That's who you wan singing on your track.

    This is my second time working with Pilar and she’s always a joy. She has a wonderful voice and always brings exactly what the track needs. I highly recommend!

  18. Review by Glenn Angell

    Working with Pilar was amazing from start to finish! The vocal melodies and lyrics she wrote for the song are PERFECT! What an absolutely beautiful and sweet voice she has, I love it! Her voice floats and soars above the song in the best way and her subtle vocal phrasing and melodies in the 2nd part of song are simply gorgeous! She followed her intuition on what to bring to the song and she was 100% right! She is also super quick and very friendly with all communication. I highly recommend her!

Interview with Pilar Icazuriaga

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

  2. A: I like to take my time to listen to the song and to the references the clients send me. That usually gives me a clearer idea of what they're looking for. Then, I work on the topline or just learn the song in case it's already written, and go straight to recording. I normally work on the lead first, and then I go for the backing vocals and adlibs. Once I have my full idea ready I send it to the client and make the necessary revisions until they're 100% happy with the result.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: I have a home studio set up with Wunder FET U47 mic, Apollo Twin converter and virtual UAD pre: Neve 1073, Manely Voxbox, Neve 1084. I work with Protools.

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

  6. A: I do a lot of toplining, vocals and backing vocals recording. I send everything edited and ready to add to your productions.

  7. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  8. A: I always work with Rodrigo Genni. He is an amazing musician, drummer, percussionist, productor and mixer. If you have a demo and need production, mix or whatever besides lyrics and vocals, let me know and we'll team up.

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

  10. A: I know trusting your music to someone you don't know can be a challenge. I'll make sure to provide open communication and an harmonious space to talk about your project and I will work until you are totally happy with the result.

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

  12. A: I love meeting people all around the world and having the chance to use music as the most beautiful link.

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

  14. A: I work most frequently on electronic, indie pop, jazz and folk music. But I'm open to explore any genre. I love the challenge!

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  16. A: I think my strongest skill is my versatility. I can adapt to lots of genres without loosing my own color and authenticity.

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

  18. A: What I bring to songs is an intuitive and sutil interpretation. I love to transmit through airy sounds and I know when to bring a more full voice when necessary. I think it's all about sound exploring and connection.

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

  20. A: I'm inspired by music that instantly puts me in a mood when I listen to it. Some of my favorites now and then are Radiohead, Billie Holiday, Phoebe Bridgers, Jungle, Clairo, Thomas Dybdal, Babasónicos, Fito Páez.
