Otto Palmborg on SoundBetter

I work from my home studio and have hundreds of co-writes and sessions behind my back along with years of experience performing live and recording in multiple studios across the world.

My name is Otto Palmborg, I come from Finland and I work as a professional singer, writer, topliner, musician and lyricist.
I have nearly 10 years of experience in the industry and I regularly play live in different bands in Finland and work as a songwriter/topliner online.

I've written for both the Asian market (mainly K-pop) and for the Western market and have scored a few releases in Korea and China as well. I am a very diverse singer with my roots in the pop genre, but it's my lifelong side project to master singing and to learn all kinds of music genres that interest me.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    I am Japanese and worked with him using a translator.

    He got my instructions exactly right and was very easy to work with.

    He even prepared two vocal patterns and asked me which I preferred, without compromising my amateurism.

    I am glad I asked him to sing for me.

    Otto's literally a Rock Star! His voice is absolutely insane and he brought amazing fills, runs, and energy to my project. He's a pleasure to work with, super professional, and ridiculously talented. If I could keep him all to myself I would...he's THAT GOOD!!! (I kid...but not really) If you get a chance to work with him don't pass it up - he's one in a million! Thanks for your help with this project Otto, you're NEXT LEVEL!

    Otto is a pro, we had a vision for what we wanted our song to sound like and thanks to him we knew even in the early stages of the song that it would be just what we were after.

    We don't know too many singers who have the tone he has, it is perfect for dance music and so much more. Thanks again Otto.

    Otto, is someone who has a lot of passion for making music and his unique voice plays an important role in this.

    Apart from that, Otto is someone who works very professionally and works in an open and transparent way, which made it very easy for me to follow his way of working and to look at other possibilities together.

    Communication was very strong and clear and I will therefore certainly recommend Otto if you want to take your track to the next level. I will certainly take up more project (s) with him in the future.

    If every topliner was like Otto there would be less lonely instrumentals out there. Otto has a gift when it comes to writing, he writes in the theme given like it's air through his lungs. He also doesn't get offended when you want something else, which one would not consider a skill. But when you have been working with topliners over some years, you know that this is something which doesn't go by unappreciated.

Interview with Otto Palmborg

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

  2. A: I bring vocals and melodies that *really* stand out from all the thousands of songs that are made everyday.

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

  4. A: Once we've started.. Please try to explain *exactly* what you want. Don't be shy, just grab a mic and sing the topline if you want! That really helps. A voice memo is way more effective than written words.

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

  6. A: Joel Svenfelt! Here's a link to his profile: https://soundbetter.com/profiles/309939-joel-svenfelt He's a great producer and a master guitarist! You'll be in great hands with him!

  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: Definitely Pop! But there's also so many different aspects due to my background and all the various people that inspired me.. So mix in some Soul, Gospel, R&B, Rock and Funk as well!

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

  10. A: There's of course a long list.. But my ultimate goal would be Ryan Tedder.

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

  12. A: Back in the day I used to write K-pop but now I'm mainly focused on EDM, Pop and all the various house genres. But, I love gospel and R&B and I have a really soulful side to my voice as well that I try to utilize every chance I get!

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: My head is constantly full of ideas and I think that's an important skill in this business. I also never take feedback personally.

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

  16. A: Here's my list of requirements for a job: - Instrumental version of the track - Rough mix of the track - BPM - Key - If it's a topline that is not sung but played by an instrument, preferably a version with JUST the topline, nothing else

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: I've worked in my home studio for a few years now and I love it! Here I can really get into my comfort zone and do my absolute best work. Hundreds of songs have been made here.

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

  20. A: Ryan Tedder! He has had a huge impact on my vocal style.

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

  22. A: I topline, write and sing final vocals for tracks.
