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 [ AT4033 mic / Apollo Twin ]

    Superb experience. I love her voice! Pilar was easy to communicate with, the turnaround was quick, but most importantly she took my song to heart and really put herself in it in ways that exceeded my expectation. I instructed what I wanted, but also asked her to bring some magic all her own in sections, and she so stepped up and delivered. Would use again in a heartbeat. :)

    Pilar is a fantastic musician! her vocals are beuatiful and she absolutely nailed the indications and the whole musical direction that was asked for. She surprised me innovating with a very creative flow of the song that made me want to work with her again. I absolutely recommend her!

    She is organized, responds quickly with ideas, she is open to communication and is willing to step outside of her comfort zone to push creative direction. She can give a variety of options for you to work with. As a producer this quality is rare to find in more off branch genres.
