    Another winning performance from Holly! As a repeat producer and recorder using Holly as the singer (solo and harmonies), I've made many comments about her abilities already, but I can say so much more...Super versatile (I've thrown her many different genres, beats and styles), which she handles with ease! Pitch, diction (a super A+++) and style. Picks up on directions quickly and easily. A pleasure to work with!

    Thanks again Holly!

    This is the second time I've worked with Holly and once again I was very happy with the result and her professionalism. Holly turned around the vocals more quickly than I was expecting and was happy to re-sing a line when I requested it.

    Thanks Holly!

    This is the third time I've engaged Holly, each for a different song and responsibilities. Holly has a beautiful voice, great range, passion, feeling and is able to handle the wide range of singing requests I presented to her...This time saving the track with but a moment's notice!!!

    In addition, very timely with tracks, knows her way around recording (a BIG PLUS!!) and a super nice Woman.

    Thanks Holly...You saved the day again!!

    Another great project with Holly. She has premier level vocals and simply has a knack for coming up with parts that add to the song. Truly a professional in every aspect. Highly recommended!

    As the second session with Holly (a different song) I can with complete confidence commend her and recommend her for any project. Versatile and takes direction well.
    Wonderful voice, excellent musician and communication. Very easy to work with. As a recorder for previous Grammy Winners and Nominees, I have the experience to tell when some one is "into it". Holly has a voice, soul and spirit of Gold!!

    Thanks Holly and looking forward to working with you again!

Interview with Holly

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

  2. A: My promise to you is that I will absolutely look after your music as if it were my own. I bring new energy, commitment and passion to every song or project I am involved in, and I understand the crazy mix of excitement and apprehension that can occur when a client hands over their treasured music to someone they don't know. This is why I stay in touch, let you know when I will be working on your song, and truly invest myself in your project. I suppose my most important promise is that I will work on your song until you are 100% in love with what I have produced for you- you're in safe hands.

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

  4. A: What I love most about being a full-time singer is that I get to do what I love, every day. Soundbetter has exposed my voice to producers and musicians from across the world and I have had the pleasure and honour of working on so many wonderful projects. From major label EDM tracks to independent theatre songs, from television adverts and radio jingles to writing melodies and lyrics from the heart, no two days are the same. If there is one thing in my life that I will never tire of, it's the power of music, and the joy that singing sparks within me.

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

  6. A: In order to deliver exactly what my client is looking for, I always take time to gain an understanding of the vocal style the client is looking for on their song. For example, would they like a strong and soulful delivery? Or a more open and light sound? Some clients have very clear ideas on what they are looking for, and often send me links to other songs to use as a reference which is really helpful, however other clients may be more flexible and open to my personal input, which is equally as brilliant as allows me to express myself and add my stamp to the song. Other information that I find really helpful is the timeline or any deadlines the client may be working to, the structure of the song/ lyrics, the BPM and providing all the necessary tracks to begin my work.

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

  8. A: I work primarily on EDM, Soul, Funk and pop songs, though I often get hired for Musical Theatre songs as well as having had many years experience singing for radio jingles and power intros.

  9. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  10. A: I have invested in an industry standard vocal booth for perfect recording conditions, as well as a Neumann TLM 102 and Scarlett 2i2 (3rd Gen). My vocals have been released on major labels using this setup, and many producers have commented on the quality of my recordings.

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

  12. A: I love the vocal tone and delivery style of artists such as Dua Lipa, Amy Winehouse, Adele. I also listen to and love the music of artists such as Allen Stone, Lake Street Dive and Sammy Rae, both musically and vocally.

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

  14. A: The work I undertake on Soundbetter is so varied which I absolutely love, however I most commonly get hired to sing the topline on pre-written songs, be that on EDM, House or Musical Theatre songs. I also get hired to write topline melodies, lyrics and backing vocals. As a choir leader and arranger I always particularly enjoy writing and recording backing vocals!

  • Vocal Samples 👄 & Radio Jingles📻Apr 18, 2021

    This week I've enjoyed working on writing and recording vocal sample packs for a client. I've also been doing more work with one of my most loyal returning customers, Bespoke Music, singing on their Radio Jingles. I am currently the voice for over 100 radio stations throughout the world and get heard by over 7 million people per week in the process. 💿🎙😲

  • Garage & HouseApr 09, 2021

    It's been a busy month this March, with several projects on the go. From collaborating on a UK Garage track to writing hooks for commercial and EDM tunes, I love the variety that working on Soundbetter brings. Before joining Soundbetter I hadn't sung on many House tracks, but it now seems to be my most requested genre from producers- it's the funk & soul vibes!

  • New Year, New Projects!Jan 04, 2021

    2021 is here! And while the state of the world with the pandemic and everything else that that entails means not a lot will be changing, I for one have had a well deserved break and am ready to jump back into some fresh and exciting new projects this year. 

    What songs will we make together this year?

  • Backing Vocals LoveOct 14, 2020

    This week I've enjoyed working on three really great projects, all so different and so much fun! One of them was writing full backing vocals for a rocky/blues number and I had forgotten how much I LOVE writing backing vocals. Pre-corona I ran choirs and I am definitely getting withdrawals from singing in a group- writing backing vocals is absolutely filling that hole right now <3 

  • Songs ReleasedAug 20, 2020

    Some of the songs I sang on at the beginning of lockdown have now begun to be released and I am LOVING hearing the finished results- playing them full blast in my studio!

  • Post-Lockdown RehearsalJul 20, 2020

    I had the chance to rehearse with my band for the first time since lockdown this week, it was so weird and amazing and lots of things rolled into one. 

  • NEWS- I'm a Premium Provider!Jul 05, 2020

    I'm so excited to announce that I have now been accepted as a Soundbetter Premium Provider (only 5% of artists on Soundbetter), meaning the service I provide has been verified as being at the highly professional standard you expect. I am so excited to begin an even bigger, better chapter on Soundbetter and collaborate with you all! 2020, let's do it!

  • Lockdown Cornwall ProjectMay 26, 2020

    I had great fun this week singing on the 'Lockdown Cornwall' project- a performance of 'One Day More' from Les Miserables sung by performers and singers throughout Cornwall.

  • Radio Imaging...jingle vocals!May 22, 2020

    This week I've been busy doing work for my most regular client Bespoke Music. We are recording a new jingle package for some of Bauer's radio stations. Some of them are 70s 80s and 90s influenced and others with commercial chart vibes. I love getting to sing in a range of styles within one job!

  • The Voice 2020May 15, 2020

    I've had a fabulous time this year participating in the 2020 season of 'The Voice'. Over a period of 6 months I was whittled down from 15'000 singers to the eventual top 50 girls. I had the opportunity to sing in front of Will.i.am, Tom Jones, Meghan Trainor and Olly Murrs, and it was the most amazing experience!

  • TV Commerical for South BrazilNov 24, 2019

    I've had great fun working on a project this week for a University commercial that will be used on television, internet and radio in South Brazil for the next 180 days. I loved the melody, and this particular job gave me a real chance to belt and use the bigger, 'soul-sister' side of my voice. It was also in my sweet spot dream key (E), so I was an extra-happy singer this week!

  • Greatest Hits Radio PackageNov 22, 2019

    I've been busy over the last few months recording vocals for the new jingle package for Greatest Hits Radio! I've liked the throwback vibes on some of these! Check out 'Greatest Hits Radio' online to hear them in action!
