Female background/backing vocals by GRAMMY nominee for $125

Hey there, I'm Lydia Salnikova. I've been a professional singer/musician/songwriter for 15+ years, I am a GRAMMY nominee, a Hollywood Music in Media Award nominee, and I have recorded with the likes of Kenny Rogers, Bering Strait, Sir Christopher Lee and John Ford Coley, to name a few. Over the years of my professional career, my work has been heard on such networks as ABC, CBS, NBC, CMT, Animal Planet – and even in outer space! I work in multiple genres, such as pop, rock, folk, country, alternative, dance and others. Check out the attached SoundCloud reel to hear samples of my BGV work in various genres.

In addition to singing in English, I also sing in French and in Russian – as well as Croatian and Sanskrit (with pronunciation guide). Please contact me to request samples in other languages.

For recording vocal tracks, I use: Logic Pro X studio software, Apogee Duet audio interface / mic pre, Baby Bottle mic by BLUE.

The price includes a good amount of BGVs on 1 song (up to 5 minutes in length) - 2-3 harmony parts, perhaps some oohs/aahs if applicable, typically 5-6 tracks total. If you need more tracks/takes/doubles/stems than that – or if you require more revisions, please let know and I'll be glad to accommodate your request for an additional charge.

She moves quickly and gives you exactly what you're looking for. I look forward to working with her again in the future. She is an amazing talent and has meant so much to me. Definitely a dream come true. It was my dream to work with a Grammy Nominee this year on music for my movies and I am so happy to have that dream come true!

    I have no words to describe how magnificent Lydia is. She responded to my request almost within minutes. I had nog song melody and no lyrics and what she come up with perfectly suited my needs. It was even above expectation.
    Her voice is so warm, and yet bright. Everything perfectly in tune. Very high quality recording.

  20. Review By: BillMJ Oct 8, 2016

    Excellent job Lydia! A pleasure working with you. We'll do this again. Thanks!

  21. Review By: ryanhunt Sep 17, 2016

    Fantastic! Professional, quick to respond. exceeded expectations! I first approached Lydia months ago when I selected her for my project. It took me time to get things together, but she was patient. I had some words in a foreign language; she was great at working with me to make sure we were on the same page with pronunciation. She demonstrated a high level of talent, skill, creativity and collaboration. I love the sound she created and will definitely be approaching her for future work. WOW!!

  22. Review By: KappieHerb Jul 27, 2016

    Lydia is an absolute professional. She went straight to work on my project, and her vocals and piano were beautiful. I highly recommend her. She is the best.

  25. Review By: Pankaj May 29, 2016

    Lydia is a STAR. She is very professional and took my song and sang back my lyrics with so much feeling and character - everyone who hears the song now always asks me who the singer is. The turnaround time, quality of recording and harmonies were stunning. Thanks Lydia, I look forward to doing more songs with you in future. Pankaj

    Lydia always produces high quality work. Highly recommended. Pleasure to work with!

  34. Review By: MidnightTide Dec 7, 2015

    Lydia was fantastic to work with! I highly recommend her for your project. Professional, easy communication, and prompt. Worked from a very rough vocal guide in wrong key, lyric sheet, and no notation and delivered great lead and harmony vocals. Thanks Lydia, hope to work with you again soon!

  35. Review By: DaveM Oct 10, 2015

    Lydia’s a class act. Her vocals have all the warmth, depth and precision you’d expect from the best of pro singers. It’s also been a relief to have a musician that can interpret exactly what’s required from just a notated lead sheet and instrumental mix when no scratch vocal's available.Thanks Lydia

  36. Review By: cailowe Oct 10, 2015

    Very talented artist! Great to work with and very professional. Thanks again!

  37. Review By: mavpeterson Sep 24, 2015

    I highly recommend Lydia to anyone that's looking for a extremely talented vocalist. From our first interaction I know that I was dealing with a professional. She replied to all of my messages very quickly and she delivered the final track several days before the estimated date.

  38. Review By: KappieHerb Jul 1, 2015

    Lydia's voice is a rare combination between seemingly effortless singing, very full and wide sounding vocals with lots of emotional depth and character. Her way of working can be characterized as helpful and professional.

  39. Review By: KappieHerb May 18, 2015

    This time I keep it short folks: Working with Lydia is pure magic!

  40. Review By: Eugene May 17, 2015

    Lydia is simply amazing! She took my horrible vocals and made my vision sound exactly like I wanted it to!

  41. Review By: KappieHerb Apr 22, 2015

    It is possible: Some of the best voices out there and a communicative, nice and professional person to go with it. Highly recommended!

    Professional, helpful, participation, soulful, character, fantastic voice, nice person...

    Thank you Lydia

  43. Review By: Munchini Nov 26, 2014

    Lydia did a great job. She was very professional and added a great harmony to enhance the vocal on the hook she did for me. She has a great understanding of tonality and pitch. She also delivered my order much earlier than expected.

    Many thanks, Lydia for the 100% vocals re the uptempo pop song track, ‘LAST TIME’. You made an excellent job, packing the pitch perfect vocals with lots of pop energy, and harmony! Great!

  68. Review By: thelife Jun 7, 2013

    Lydia is a very talented singer. She was willing to work back and forth with me on the track I had that needed a female vocal hook. She was able to take my suggestion and feedback and create a great product.
