    First time working with Raena and won't be the last! Amazing voice and writing. She was willing to work very collaboratively and delivered beautifully recorded vocals that exceeded our (high) expectations. Look forward to releasing this and more to come with Raene. Cannot recommend enough.

    This was my first time working with Raena and it was an absolute pleasure! She was very communicative and quick with the turnaround. She’s an excellent songwriter with an amazing voice. I absolutely love what she brought to the track. Her lyrics are catchy and she’s super smooth on the beat. I’ve had it on repeat all day haha.

    Raena is kind, professional and a real joy to work with. I look forward to collaborating with her on future projects!

    Raena is an exceptional talent! What sets her apart though are her great musical instincts, and nailing the nuances of the vocal. Also an awesome communicator. Would work with her again in a heartbeat!

    Excellent singer offering a prompt and professional service. Raena creatively interpreted my rapped lyrics then came up with her own complementary ones for a piano interlude on my EP track "Emotion". Nice one! Chris

Interview with Raena

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

  2. A: To be a good person to work and communicate with and to always produce excellent results that you will be happy with!

  3. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  4. A: I will always ask to hear the instrumental, references and brief before agreeing to work on a track as I need to be passionate about the project!

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

  6. A: Timberland or Pharrell Williams because their production is so creative and they create incredibly catchy hooks! Or Julia Michaels because she is an incredible song writer.

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

  8. A: Nyman - he is an incredible producer and vocalist with an ear for what's catchy! Nyman is super talented and such a pleasure to work with! https://soundbetter.com/profiles/98991-nyman Christy Carey - he is an amazing and versatile producer! Christy is a super talented producer and musician with such a brilliant work ethic to create exactly what his client's envision. https://soundbetter.com/profiles/344761-christy-carey Chloe Blackwell - she is an incredibly talented and conscientious vocalist and songwriter that I have had the pleasure to collaborate with. https://soundbetter.com/profiles/192492-chloe-blackwell

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

  10. A: My unique vocal tone and writing experience. I can also provide complex backing vocals and harmonies if requested.

  11. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  12. A: I am a solo artist under RAENE - in this project I am the vocalist, song writer and executive producer. https://open.spotify.com/artist/6fTa2ugChlaoRIF6jvrZdV?si=IRTIY5HzRiWYU1a1IK5J2Q

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

  14. A: Julia Michaels, Kehlani, H.E.R, Ariana Grande, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams.

  15. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  16. A: I use a Neumann M147, Universal Audio Apollo Twin X preamp, Macbook Pro, Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO headphones and Logic Pro X in my home recording studio.

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

  18. A: Being able to sing and make music everyday. I get to do what I love for a living!

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

  20. A: Know what vocal sound you're looking for and then find it through the audio samples provided on profiles. Different singers don't just have different tones and ranges but they can also bring a completely different energy to your track. Have a voice in mind first before finding it!

  21. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  22. A: If you haven't received the BPM for a track on Logic Pro X, go to 'Metering' > 'BPM Counter to find the tempo. Once the track has been put in time, recording vocals is much easier in terms of editing and making sure everything is in time!

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

  24. A: RnB/Pop.

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

  26. A: I will go over the brief provided by the client and then write the vocals if this is required. If not, I will record the written vocals (by following a guide vocal) in my home recording studio using Logic Pro X. Once finished, I will bounce the dry wav files and send them across to the client!

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: Vocally, I'd say my falsetto and in writing my strength is creating catchy hooks and being able to resonate with genuine emotions and experiences in others.

  29. Q: How would you describe your style?

  30. A: RnB/Pop

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

  32. A: I mostly write and record top line vocals.
