Not another robotic singer-- emotional range is my wheelhouse. I specialize in soft pop and folk, but have studied genres ranging from country to R&B. My vocal tones range from rich and sultry, to light and clear-- I love to play around with different tones and styles to fit the song/lyric. References are always welcome.
As a vocal performance grad from Belmont University, my skill-set combines technical accuracy with the nuance and emotion that is at the heart of what makes music truly special. In addition to a basic lead vocal, I love writing, creating BGV arrangements, and generally helping you bring musical ideas to life--I'm all about variety in texture, tone, and musical color!

Great voice, very quick and nailed it first time! Wonderful, Thanks Meredith!
dreamy voice indeed!!
when she sang the soft "t"
in the lyric "how sweet",
it felt like a kiss
great experience working with her.
mine was a complex project, lots of discussion how to do it and what about making changes, doing experiments to get it right and probably need to improve and redo .., etc etc
Meredith hit a home run, more or less right away, job done, perfect, a wow experience altogether.
Delivered exactly what I was looking for, you'll definitely want to hire her!

Great singer and a pleasure to work with!
Great to work with as she cared about the overall production, phenomenal voice, and voice didn't need that much tuning after one take!
Meredith was super easy and smooth to work with. Great singer and fast communicator!!
Meredith did a fantastic job for us. She's easy to work with and was willing to put in the extra effort to add emotion to the vocal. We hope to work with her again in the future.
Meredith always delivers. Great job!
It was a pleasure working with Meredith. She did a fantastic job at matching the energy of the track, adding her own unique melodies to the production, and providing me with loads of vocal tracks to play with...would love to work with again!
Was an absolute pleasure working with Meredith. Very professional, very friendly, brilliant communication.
We had a lot of back and forth with ideas on the song, she took onboard the feedback and was able to deliver an amazing outcome. It was a shame we didn't do this together in a studio as the recording session would have been so much fun.
Loved the voice, and was a delight to work with. Would love to work with her again.
Meredith did an outstanding job! She was easy to work with and provided exactly the Background vocals and harmonies I was looking for to give that special touch of magic to my CCM cover track. So great - superb! And such a quick turnaround. I'm delighted with her stunning performance. Highly recommend her and I'll definitely be coming back to her for future work.
Meredith delivered! She was quick, communicated well, helped me mold my idea and didn't mind to do additional revisions.
Such a talent, her writing is absolutely beautiful and relatable. Her voice can be airy and delicate or soulful and deliberate, very versatile on lead and harmonies. Highly recommend her services!
Meredith is outstanding! So professional and you can tell she’s had Nashville experience as well as studied at Belmont University. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.
Interview with Meredith Nee
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Remember that music is a conversation & each element should be given the proper respect/space/and time to serve its purpose.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First I like to get a really good sense for what the client wants--asking lots of questions, gathering references, and using lots of descriptive language to figure out what the vibe/tone/sound should be. For lead vocals, I go section by section to build my own vocal reference, and then go from there-- really listening to meticulously fine-tune the nuance in the phrasing, and emotion to fit the song. For BGVs arrangements I like to get a bit experimental and try anything and everything that comes to mind--letting the music inform me. I typically go overboard on BGV tracks and then scale it way back to not distract from anything else in the track. More doesn't mean better!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am constantly inspired by the community of musicians in Nashville
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am in the process of writing and recording my own folk pop project :)
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Intimate, clear, emotional.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Most projects I work on fall somewhere in the 'pop' spectrum-- though I have been really enjoying exploring Americana and Country projects lately.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Sakari Greenwell is a fantastic vocal talent who delivers consistent soulful, powerful lead vocals in addition to BGVs that are well arranged, produced, and with musical interest.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring authenticity and human emotion to the projects I work on.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: My favorite part about this type of work is being able to help people from all over be able to complete projects that mean a lot to them. Creating music should be accessible for everyone who wants to, but so many factors (time, location, money, etc.) can limit and sometimes prevent this from happening. I love that Soundbetter allows me to be a player in someone accomplishing their goals and desires at an affordable rate. I also just really love to sing :)
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What does this project mean to you? What goals are you hoping to accomplish with this project, and how can I assist you in reaching those goals?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Clear communication on what you are looking for is key in getting a product that you love. If you are struggling to articulate this, I am happy to spend the time chatting with you and figuring it out together. Reference tracks are always welcome, and I am always happy to discuss abstract concepts/emotions you are wanting to convey and help narrow them down into decisive direction.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I believe my strongest skill (and favorite type of work to do) is arranging and singing tasteful background vocals that enhance a song's texture, color, and feel. I believe that the voice is an extremely versatile instrument in the production of a song, and should be treated as part of the musical conversation happening between instruments in a piece-- meaning it should be present enough to enhance the music without taking anything away from the production as a whole.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am mostly hired to sing lead vocal tracks and will often arrange and sing BGV tracks to add more depth and texture to the project. I have also often worked with clients to first write the topline lyric/melody based on their vision and then have delivered it all together as a lead vocal + BGV arrangement.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is flexibility and persistence to deliver to you the product you want and deserve.
