Vocals are THE most important part of your track. The average listener will be tuning into your song, wanting to connect with the vocals more than anything else. A catchy hook with MAKE OUR BREAK your song, so why not get the best quality you can?

My name is Brad West and I'm a classically trained singer with over 12 years of experience on stage and in the studio. Here is a link to a playlist of songs I have sung on:

I will record vocals for your upcoming song with industry-standard recording equipment, producing high-quality stems that will give soul to your song.

I also offer songwriting services! I regularly write for clients and my own bands and I love to create the most dynamic and catchy vocal lines to make your song come alive.

Though I specialize in Rock, Punk, and Metal, I am also comfortable in genres such as Country, Pop, Hip Hop, and Jazz, and R&B.

Please send me a message before placing an order so that we can schedule a call, as I would like to get to know you as an artist and a songwriter before I start working on your piece.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    Brad did an amazing job with our song, he improved the lyrics and melodies and gave a great vocal guide track. Brad is a pro and took the job with no qualms at all with an awesome turn around given how busy I was, Brad was very patient and understanding.

Interview with sun_setswest

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

  2. A: That would be my band Against The Sun, I am the singer and principal songwriter for that band. All vocals are written by me and I perform all of the clean vocals.

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

  4. A: I will never 'phone in' your song. If I wouldn't want to listen to it, then I'm not sending it.

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

  6. A: The feeling I get when I write something that I am genuinely excited about.

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

  8. A: That it's easy to write vocals, especially lyrics. Getting a feel for what works well in a song and how words flow together to tell a story is an art, it takes a lot of time and practice.

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

  10. A: What emotions do you want conveyed by a vocal performance? How do you want your audience to react to your song?

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

  12. A: Let's hop on a call and discuss your song! I never want to start a project without getting to know a bit about you first.

  13. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  14. A: Laptop, interface, microphone, XLR, head phones

  15. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  16. A: I have been writing music and performing in bands for over 12 years. It is my favorite thing to do and I hope to make it my full time career.

  17. Q: How would you describe your style?

  18. A: I try to capture the moment when writing a piece, I don't second-guess myself, and I chase after what peaks my curiosity.

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

  20. A: I would love to work with Adam Gontier from Three Days Grace because that man's voice is the thing that inspired me to want to do music.

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

  22. A: Always grab more takes than you think you need. You will thank yourself when you're editing.

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

  24. A: I typically work on heavy/hard rock, but I do all sorts of genres ranging from Country to R&B and Pop. I cover a lot of ground in the Rock world though, specializing in Modern Rock, Emo, and Pop Punk.

  25. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  26. A: My strongest skill is writing big catchy choruses, which I always highlight as THE most important part to any song that has commercial intent. I pride myself on coming up with instantly catchy lines and infectious melodies that get stuck in people's heads.

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

  28. A: I never try to write the same song twice and I always want to write music that I would love to listen to. I try to experiment and not fall into what you would typically expect from a song, without overthinking a piece.

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

  30. A: I like to start with getting to know the client and the inspiration behind the piece. We're making art together, so I want us to get to know each other a little bit. I then listen to the song many many times, getting a feel for the piece and figuring out how I can write something unique. Once I get a general feel for the melody and the cadence, I start noticing if certain phrases pop into my head and I build the lyrics out from there. Once that's done, I make sure to lay down what I have so far and refine until it's a killer main vocal.

  31. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  32. A: My studio setup is simple, but effective. I setup my Sm7b in a small closet that is completely deadened to make sure I get the purest takes.

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

  34. A: Adam Gontier of Three Days Grace is my favorite singer of all time and I love the production and mixing of Howard Benson. I also love singers from Kurt Kobain to Tim Mcllrath and Maynard James Keenan.

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

  36. A: The most common type of work I do for clients is toplining. A musician will come to me with a fully written instrumental and they want me to write vocals for their piece. These projects are fun because I can make sure that the melody and lyrics interact with one another in fun ways that compliment the music.
