Do you feel like your recordings are not completely representative of your best singing?
Are you ever frustrated because you sing SO much better in rehearsal then in the recording studio?
You need a Vocal Producer
What does a Vocal Producer do, you ask?
A Vocal Producer guides you to a new level of inspired performance in the studio. My dual expertise as a voice teacher and recording artist has made me uniquely suited to being a Vocal Producer.
Recording artists, record labels and record producers hire me to work with recording artists like you as a Vocal Producer. We get together in advance of your recording sessions to coach the material you will be recording. Then I attend all your recording sessions of the sung material working hand in hand with your record producers and engineers and, most importantly, YOU, coaching and nurturing you throughout the session to get the best vocal performance possible out of you. After the session, I stay on with the engineer to comp and edit the vocal takes into their final form.
Part of my work as Vocal Producer can also include arranging the background vocals and vocal harmonies on your tracks.
I have served as a Vocal Producer with recording artists across the spectrum from major label artists (Radio Killa / Interscope / MySpace Records / Hollywood Records) and contestants from American Idol and X Factor, to indie artists (ZVision Records / PEGA Records) and “'tween” artists (Kidz Bop / Disney). My regular collaborators include Grammy® winner Rafa Sardina (Lady Gaga, Luis Miguel, Macy Grey), Grammy® winner Jeff Bova (Katy Perry, Celine Dion, Meatloaf), Emmy® nominated songwriter Amy Powers, and Loren Gold (music director for Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, and Roger Daltry).

The cost for my vocal producing services runs on a per project basis and is dependant on the scope of the recording project (how many songs, time frame etc.). If you are interested in having me produce vocals for your project, please reach out to me via the “Contact” page of this website. We will discuss the specifics of your project and I will give you a price quote.
Arden inspires talent to perform beyond their limitations and draw out of them inspired performances. This is why I call on her expertise when I need someone to support and guide talent I work with. She takes each person under her wing and nurtures them carefully to suit their musical style and level of experience. I highly recommend the next time you need a coach to help a vocalist of any level experience whether in live performance or in the studio, to have Arden part of your team.

Working with Arden and her team, I discovered more about myself as an artist and I am one step closer to my dream. Working with Arden made a dramatic difference on my voice. Not only did she help me technically but she brought out the best of me as a performer. The whole experience made me grow as an artist and I will never forget the knowledge and wisdom I gained.

Arden was my vocal producer and vocal coach on a couple of songs I recorded while on an extended visit to LA. Working with Arden was by far the best vocal experience I have had. She analyzed my voice accurately and instructed me in specific ways to correct my technique in ways no one else had ever done. Anytime I am in the Los Angeles area, I will seek Arden's vocal talent and expertise.

We feel so blessed to have found such a masterful, caring and creative vocal producer. Arden listened to my daughter Danielle and tailored her song selection to meet Danielle's needs artistically and vocally. She also worked to prepare Danielle technically, challenging her to try new techniques and helping her grow as a recording artist. Arden's experience as a recording artist and teacher made her an invaluable asset in the recording studio. We couldn't be more pleased with the experience or the resulting recordings.
