AR Vocal Agency

We partner the commercial music industry with vocalists

The AR Vocal Agency was set up with the primary intention of providing music producers with a dedicated source of vocalists and topline writers – a service we felt was conspicuously missing in commercial music. However, seizing a gap in the market and with unrivalled access to an extensive network of singing and songwriting talent, AR now provides vocalists for a wide variety of projects.

Our aim today is to be the one-stop-shop for all things vocal

Whether you are seeking acapella vocal toplines, bespoke topline writing and recording, featured artists, backing and session vocalists, or vocalists for media placements and even TV talent shows, we can help.  Our specialism is in pop, dance and electronic music genres, with great effort taken to ensure that you are partnered with exactly the right type of vocalists for your needs.

We are very proud to say that the AR Vocal Agency is the first and only of its kind

We believed there was far more vocal & topline writing talent out there than was reflected in the commercial music industry – so we went out and found it. Having built up an extensive vocal talent network over many years, we believe AR has unparalleled knowledge of (and close relationships with) vocalists and topline writers – from exciting up-and-comers to the iconic voices of our time.

What They Said


ANISH SOOD

Working with Anna has been like a dream from the beginning. She's incredibly professional and punctual with her work, and the quality and variety of toplines she delivered far surpassed my expectations. Highly recommended!

Andrew Armstrong, MONARCHY & HORIXON

I loved working with Anna. She heard the music, we discussed the direction and she immediately suggested a bunch of suitable singers. The important thing was she understood the brief exactly, and had a portfolio of contacts at her fingertips. Worked perfectly for us!

Barney Addison, SYCO

AR Vocal Agency are an absolute joy to work with. Always passionate, always thorough and continually exceeding expectations of what’s needed, whatever the brief.

KLANGKUENSTLER

It is such a pleasure to work with the AR Vocal Agency. Every time I could rely on Anna and her vocalists for high quality and professional recordings. Anna is always super friendly, answers fast and I got everything in very quick time.

GIANT MEN MANAGEMENT

AR were fantastic to work with and their vocalists delivered at the highest standard throughout our sessions. We would not hesitate to work with them and their vocalists again on further projects.

SAMPLE MAGIC

AR have put together a fantastic database of talented singers/songwriters which gave us the welcome challenge of having hours of deliberation to whittle our choice down to one.  Working with AR has been awesome; they understood the brief straight away and any feedback was taken on board every time.

YOLANDA BE COOL

FINALLY someone has started this business! I wish we’d known about the AR Vocal Agency earlier, now it’s like our secret weapon.

DOORLY

This is exactly what I’ve been looking for – I’m so glad AR have set this up!

HACKMAN

I was very happy with the results of working with AR. Anna went above and beyond the service I was expecting, and I’d recommend AR to anyone having difficulty sourcing a vocal!

MTA Records

We’ve worked with the AR Vocal Agency for a number of projects at MTA Records including full top lines, sample recreation and much, much more. We highly recommend their services - great communication, quick turnaround and they always smash it out of the park.
