Female vocals by GRAMMY nominee for $220

In Vocals (Female) By lydiasalnikova

Female vocals by GRAMMY nominee for $220

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 work in various genres.

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

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

The price includes 1 lead vocal track and 2-3 harmony tracks on a commercial use recording (up to 5 minutes in length) – including TV/film use, any type of licensing, selling on iTunes, radio broadcast, etc. The only thing I ask is that you do not list the recording under my name (since I am a hired session singer and YOU are the artist and the visionary), but you may sell it away, without any future royalties owed to me!

If you need more tracks/takes/doubles/stems than what's outlined above or require more revisions, please let know and I'll be glad to accommodate your request for an additional charge.

Let me also add that this particular service only includes vocal recording, so the song has to be completely finished on your end, before it gets to me – both melody and lyrics. If you require any composing/writing of the melody or lyrics, in addition to recording vocals, please contact me for a custom quote.

Lead vocal compilation

Samples of some of my work in the following genres: alternative, pop, rock, country, EDM

    I will have to start adding more stars to the 5 star review ........ 5 is simply not enough to describe the excellent, timely, courteous, and professional service you get when you hire Lydia to sing ....... or to sing and play piano. Outstanding!

    This 15 minute "song" of mine was an exceptional challenge for the best of musicians. Lydia came through once again with flying colors expertly dealing with all the nuances and changes of mood and melody. She truly is an artistic genius.

    I write scripture to music - is doesn't hurt to have an angel singing it! Thanks Lydia!

    Lydia did a superb job on my song! She perfectly interpreted my extensive notes and executed everything to perfection. On top of that, she was responsive right from the start and completed the project ahead of my anticipated schedule. Great voice too!

  6. Review By: thebroken Feb 24, 2019

    Another stellar performance from Lydia! This is the third time I've worked with her now - if that tells you anything. It is such a pleasure to mix her vocals with my music - makes me sound better than I actually am :D I completely trust her to make any melody/timing changes because it always ends up better after she's done with it. She's the best!

  7. Review By: BibleMusicMan Feb 21, 2019

    From start to finish Lydia is a gifted professional. She starts by careful analysis of the project to insure that the project will go forward efficiently and without surprises ........ then when the plan is clear ...... she produces an amazing first draft that always exemplifies her attention to every detail of your composition. Finally, she happily makes revisions if needed to insure you will be delighted with the final version. I am very grateful she is working on my project.

    Lydia is a consummate professional. She provided a detailed description of her proposed approach and sought clarification for areas of uncertainty. Her final product was a beautiful version of my song. She was able to capture the spirit of the song in her soulful and touching rendition. I highly recommend Lydia and look forward to working with her again.

    You cannot go wrong working with Lydia! From her samples you can hear her amazing voice and piano skills ........... beyond that she is very capable in the 'intangibles' .......... she is professional, polite, has great acumen in discerning the intent of the composer and translating it to the final product ... even when (as in my case) she is interpreting and translating the music from a guitar piece to a piano piece.

    I cannot recommend her more highly!

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!!

    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.
