Genevieve G. on SoundBetter

I will enhance your electronic production with a warm, spellbinding vocal.

My signature as a singer and songwriter is strongly inspired by jazz, but aimed at bringing a special touch to different styles of electronic music.
My background extends to various subgenres; I started off as a singer-songwriter-producer in the progressive and deep house scenes under the name Nevee, and later became the lead singer and top liner for the "trip-hoppy" band Hungry Creatures. More recently, I've worked as a contractor singer for Altar studios in UK (the award-winning team behind Dance Music Production), lending my voice to some of their state-of-the-art house productions.
I've been told that my voice has a rather distinctive timbre - deep, racy and soulful.
What I love above all is to write melodies and lyrics that have a mysterious, even cinematographic feel to them (I've even heard the term "james bondish" to describe my work a few times).
I seek elegance, originality and memorability.
If that flavor is what you're looking for, by all means, reach out to me!
I will compose a unique vocal line for your production, write compelling lyrics to support it, and deliver you a clean, tuned vocal (I use Melodyne) alongside all the adlibs and harmonies you may need.
If you already have a song in mind and want my voice to support it, likewise, I will work meticulously and rigourously to insufflate some extra love and magic to your music.

Interview with Genevieve G.

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: Although it is not part of the services I offer on SoundBetter (yet!), it turns out that I am also a producer, and am presently producing the songs of my solo album! My style oscillates between deep house and trip hop, two styles I have a strong weakness for.

  3. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  4. A: My answer will be extremely personal, but I believed for a long time that true songwriters wrote songs out of a burning desire to express their thoughts and the way they felt. Yet, if you ask me what I want to write about, I don't have the slightest idea! It's always something I progressively discover from the moment I start jamming over a groove (mine or someone else's), and it still develops afterwards. It's like if the music itself inspired and revealed what my heart had to sing about. I won't lie to you, I do find this process very weird. But it is, also, very magic.

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

  6. A: When toplining over a new groove, I will create a good vibe in my studio, make sure my phone is turned off, and will spend some time listening to the music in loop while jamming vocal motives over it. I will try to explore different rhythms, lengths, shapes, and registers, to come up with as many melodic ideas as possible. I like to work in Ableton's session view to do this, and record the bits and pieces I come up with on different audio clips. I'll generally come back to this "organized" jam the following day, and it'll be clear for me which parts really stick out, and if they should belong to verses or choruses (or else). I will then assemble a whole vocal melody from those favorite chunks, making sure the sections are contrasted enough, and build a compelling progression. (Once, I told my mom that assembling melodies for me was like playing with legos of different shapes and colors. I'm super proud every time I can make my mom understand stuff about music production.) 
Once I have the melody, I will write the lyrics over it. Generally, some words naturally emerge during the jam and they tend to stick; when that happens, I let them guide me… and it's fun!
