Excellent singer, songwriter and musical producer. Hauntingly beautiful voice, very creative and flexible, huge range - but most umportantly, is an absolute joy of a person to work with. Jaraneh wrote songs and music with our spiritual nonprofit, recording tracks for various media and performing at live events - often leaving listeners with hairs standing on end. She even created a wonderfully catchy children's song with our charity! Highly recommended enlisting her services - 100%
Jaraneh is an extraordinary vocalist, composer, and producer. She volunteered her incredible talents with the nonprofit Hear Your Song to set to music the lyrics that were written by a child with a serious medical condition. Her setting was sensitive, thoughtful, and beautiful, impeccably produced, and uplifting to listen to — she captured the child's vision for his song and the empowering message inside his lyrics. Her voice is stunning and emotive. Jaraneh is communicative, conscientious in her collaborations, and works at the highest level of artistry, in each element of her music-making.
Jaraneh’s voice is one the most beautiful voices I’ve heard. Her vocal range is phenomenal and the diversity of her songs show the scope of musical tracks she can do. From cool alternative music to native chanting.
When I make my feature film, I am definitely going to be hiring her for a few tracks.
I can’t wait to add her beautiful voice to my projects!
She has a shining gift to add to this life, an undiscovered gem that needs to be heard.
