Carol Kay on SoundBetter

Lennon Award Winning singer/songwriter and composer. My music has been used by major networks like HBO, Discovery, Netflix, MTV, CBC, VH1, ESPN and more. I’ve had my work used in Samuel L Jackson’s docuseries on Epix, “Enslaved”. Most recently, my viral song “Ain’t Gonna Stop” officially clocked over half a billion plays on TikTok alone.

I’m offering vocal work and production. Please see below for details:

1. Vocal Production
Please take a listen to the samples to get a feel for what my voice sounds like. If you’re looking for vocal production, I will:
- do leads
- doubles
- harmonies (3-4 parts)
- background (oohs & aahs)

2. Production
My specialty is acoustic production in the style of adult contemporary, easy listening with a heavy emphasis on vocal layers. Typical production setup for me is:
- piano
- acoustic guitar
- organic big bass drum
- bass guitar
- vocals (listed above)

Contact me through the green button above and let's get to work.

    Carol is an exceptionally gifted vocalist and arranger who is an absolute pleasure to work with! I would be thrilled to work with her on future projects. Recommended!

    Based on previous work with Carol, I decided to have her do additional work on vocals as far as tuning, editing, and mixing go. VERY glad I spent the extra to let her use her expertise instead of trying to work on those details myself. Once again, Carol's made it possible for me to move from a piano idea to a full-blown song, and it sounds great!

    It was a pleasure working with Carol on my latest project. She was very professional and was a great communicator throughout. She came well prepared, was very polished, confident and consistent in her singing, and gave a great performance. She has a beautiful voice. It was very easy working with Carol. I plan to ask her to work on my next project.

    Carol is both efficient and instructive as a professional. She handled a codgerly person like me with dignity and a thorough handling of all the bases, from start to finish. I would certainly recommend her vocal talent for folk, Americana, and country styles of music.

    It has been a pleasure working with Carol. Communication was very fluid and the exchange of ideas was always positive. Really professional with a very creative mind and open to new ideas. I hope to work with her again in the future.

    Carol did vocals (both lead and background) on a song of mine. She sounds absolutely beautiful and made my song sound beautiful! And communication was great and professional. When I need her again, I will definitely get in touch. Thanks, Carol!
