Darlene Koldenhoven's Variety Vocal-Sampler

"Darlene is a most extraordinary vocal talent.  The voice is true and pure and has the widest possible range of styles at its command.  She also has the heart to be able to put real meaning into a song and bring it to life...Beyond her immense talent, she is totally professional and completely reliable, two rather rare and invaluable qualities."

- Jeremy Lubbock, multi-Grammy winning arranger, composer for Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion, Sting

"Although we've never met until recently . . . I've known of your rep as one of the best singers in the biz but never had a chance to hear you solo until I popped in your Kaleidoscope demo and sampled a bunch of tracks.  The range, not only in notation but styles, is amazing . . . . young composers need to know that talents like you exist and can make their job easier and their music sound better."

– Steve Winogradsky, Esq. Los Angeles, CA

This is a demonstration of the type of singing Darlene has worked on for some of the world's finest composers and producers in film, television, albums, commercials, and live recordings over the past ten years or so. Please start with part one. The style of singing and the part she has sung with additional work she's done is listed on the right.  Thanks for listening and enjoy the sampler.
If you are a person who hires vocalists and you'd like a hard copy of the entire sampler, please contact us with your address and the type of work you do and we will send you the full Kaleidoscope vocal sampler for your files at no charge, of course.
