Hi there, welcome to my profile. My name is Ariel Jones and I'm 27 years old. I am living and working in Lisbon (Portugal) but grew up most of my life in Madeira Island. I am a passionate singer for especially RnB, Soul, Reggae and Pop but I can sing any style that you might ask. It will be a pleasure to add my voice to your project. :)
Since a young age, I have had a vocal coach and singing classes. I began performing in various events, cafés, restaurants and hotels since I was 15 with a local band, in which I was the lead singer, back when I was living in Madeira Island.
Since I moved to Lisbon, I left the band I was working with and started working on my Home Studio to deliver high quality recordings to my clients and focusing on growing my solo career.
I invite you to contact me and propose any song that you would like me to interpret.
Thank you for coming to my profile.

YOUNG RIHANNA. Ariel has an amazing voice, confidence, clear artistic vision AND her own unique style. She's also a breeze to work with...honestly, I couldn't ask for more!
HIGHLY recommended if you are looking for R&B, pop or all things Island/Dancehall. This Portuguese girl has a Jamaican soul! Can't wait to hear this song come to life!
Ariel is a superb vocalist and a true professional in every way. For this project, she took on our cover of one of the most difficult songs any Pop vocalist can perform, “My All” by Mariah Carey – and she totally crushed it. Perfect pitch and range for days! Ariel’s vocal control is singularly outstanding and she has a powerful command of phrasing, tone, pocket, & passion. She has that rare ability to make her listener’s hearts feel the sharp emotion of the song. She was a total pleasure to work
Pro -sounding vocals, easy to work with. Thinking along with the song adding some top notch double voices.
Mariana is a stunning performer with that "wow" factor that just blows you away. She's a delight to work with, a top professional, whose work and communication are exceptionally outstanding. She exceeded our deadline by several weeks and willingly did some additional phrasing for me when I asked her. I'll definitely be coming back to Mariana for more!
Mariana's vocals sound amazing. I love what she recorded on my song. She sings with so much emotion and power. She has an incredible range from soft rich tones to a powerhouse belting vibrato. so much talent. and she's also a great communicator. I would definitely work with her again. Thanks so much, Mariana!
It was a pleasure working with Mariana, she performed extremely well with a good strong voice (in perfect English), delivering high quality recordings in a short amount of time, all of which sounded great. she also stayed in contact with me very well too. I was absolutely delighted to have her singing for me. Highly recommended!!
Excellent voice and very easy to deal with. Translated our song perfectly to Portuguese and sounds great.
Amazing voice! Professional :)
Very Professional, Great voice! great job on the texts in both English and Portuguese.
Mariana, understood perfectly what I was looking for. I enjoyed working with her on my project and I would definitely work with her again. Highly recommended

Interview with Ariel Jones
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on my solo career as a female artist and going to the studio to record my original songs. I have already released two of my original songs and hope to release more soon. Faith is the last thing to lose.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I offer quality recordings and vocals with all the emotions the lyrics and music ask for. I always listen to what the client asks for and adapt my vocals to the song itself.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: It is my true passion. Also the flexibility it gives me and the space to be creative with my vocals.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That everyone can sing. Not everyone can sing and know how to record their vocals properly. It takes a lot of work and hours of study. In today's world, it is easy to believe that with autotune you can do anything but what do you prefer to listen to - some autotune vocals or some true vocals and true talent?
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is your budget and when do you wish to start? What do you view as a sucessful job? What are your expectations? What are the vocal requirements you wish to be sent?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Choose with your heart - wisely and not strategically.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Microphone (of course!), an acoustic guitar, a laptop, 1 sound column and a mixer console (and one cable).
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been working with SoundBetter for almost 8 years and have a long list of jobs done here. I have been singing since an early age, being the vocalist and guitarrist of a cover band and now pursuing a solo career as a female artist. I had singing lessons at the Conservatory of Music for 8 years and piano lessons for 2 years. Music has been a big part of my life journey and my lifetime passion.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: With my influences by Gospel and Soul music, my style goes through R&B, Soul with a mix of Hip Hop.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: So many! H.E.R., Chris Brown, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Doja Cat, Jack Harlow, Mario, Ty Dolla Sign, Blxst, Latto, and many others.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't lose yourself in small details. If nothing is surging in your mind, try again on another day. Art must flow and not be forced.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually record Pop and R&B music but I have already recorded some Techno and EDM.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Singing ballads and pop/soul songs. I believe my voice is more enhanced when singing those songs.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I put my soul in my voice, full of emotions and bring power to any song, being that my strongest vocal quality.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First things first - study the work I'm going to deliever. When I believe I am secure on the song, I move to the next step of recording the vocals. It might take 2 days of recording to have the best takes recorded.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have arranged a small studio in my bedroom with great isolation and excelent quality.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am truly inspired by Beyoncé and Doja Cat. I believe they know what they want and work for it - talent it's not enough.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Producers normally reach me asking for vocals recorded, working with a demo and lyrics already produced and crestes by them.
