Female vocals by GRAMMY nominee for $270
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: Neumann TLM103 mic and Universal Audio Apollo Twin MKII audio interface / mic preamp. I also own various UA plugins such as Neve 1073, UA 610 tube, Avalon VT-737 tube and Manley VOXBOX tube – for different tone color options.
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. That said, I ask all my clients not to release, list or promote recordings under my name as artist or featured artist. While I’m proud of all work I do, I ask this simply to separate music I work on as a hired musician/singer (which varies greatly stylistically and conceptually from project to project) from music I write, produce and release as an artist.
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 price only covers vocal recording, so the song has to be completely finished on your end, before it gets to me – both melody and lyrics. Mixing is also not included. However, if you require any composing/writing of the melody or lyrics (topline) or mixing, in addition to recording vocals, please contact me for a custom quote.
