Let's be real. You want to take the next step and make a record that's out of the box and unique. I focus on creating the trend rather than following. I've worked with a collection of different artists and helped get their vision out into the world. I take influence from a genre I like to call "dark pop" or "anti pop". Let's change the game.
I am a graduate of Icon Collective. I've been producing and writing for the last 2 years professionally. I am founder of Stonewood Sound, a creative collective of producers turning demos into finished records from our clients. I'm ready to work and get your vision in motion. Visit my website to see my collection of work and click the Soundcloud link to get an early glance into my artist project.
