ABOUT

Currently working as a vocalist, writer, soundware curator/content producer in electronic dance music. I am available for session work, fill-ins, and remote projects only. My background/skillset is versatile! :)

Schooled by jazz, soul, funk, hip-hop, and R&B. Passionate for deep house, tech house, progressive house, dub techno, future bass, chillstep, ambient, trap, nu disco, electro soul, and much more. Love working on projects in the style of Disclosure (Caracal), Snakehips ("On & On"), Tensnake ("Love Sublime"), Ta-Ku (Songs To Break Up To), Talamanca, Mark Knight, NAO ("Fool to Love"), Banks ("Warm Water", Snakehips remix), Bonobo ("The Keeper", Alex Banks remix)...

Professional feedback:

"Mandy Jones is a first-class session vocalist and songwriter known for her breathtaking tone, stylistic versatility, and dynamic, powerful voice." –Freshly Squeezed Samples

"I am loving this sample pack! All samples are very usable and will sit nicely in my productions. There's a very diverse range of articulations and adlibs that allow you to get that perfect sound…I love it!" –Darren Porter

"There are some really nice vocals in the latest pack from the ever-reliable 'FSS' team! I'll be using the ad-libs, FX, one-shots, and phrases to add some nice elements to my ‘trancier’ tracks. All-in-all a superb–and BIG–pack of vocals here. Plaudits to Mandy Jones for her talents!' –Mark Sherry

"Cannot recommend this enough–the new Vocal pack by Mandy Jones. It's absolutely incredible! From ad-libs, melodic vocal phrases, spoken words and phrases, single tones, literally covers everything! Freshly Squeezed Samples has done an incredible job with one of the best vocal packs I have ever heard. Her voice is amazing. I'm already using this in my new productions and will be for a long time to come! 10/10” –Project 8
