About
I’m a producer/writer and multi instrumentalist with 10+ years of music experience in various genres - pop is my favorite and I’ve been living in LA for a little over a year now pursuing the music hustle I’ve been trying to focus on co-writing and feel I would have great synergy with someone who leans more towards lyrics and also has a pitchable voice for demos (male or female). I can produce and mix radio quality records and in particular am working towards being able to do this on a short time table because I’ve seen duos very successful when they can write amazing songs and also consistently package them with great production and vocal performances. I sing and write lyrics as well but am definitely more of a melody/production specialist.
