Professional producer and songwriter with 10 years experience in the music industry. Specializing in melding pop, funk and R&B together in exciting and fresh ways. Constantly pushing the boundaries and unafraid of risk, I like to be adventurous and discover the unique quirks of artists and showcase those distinct qualities in their songs.
Whether you need a full production, demo, topline, songwriting, vocal performance or instrument tracking, I can help you bring your song or your vision to life. I'm comfortable in most styles of music and go above and beyond to make sure your songs get the attention they deserve. Extremely easy to communicate with and get along with, I think bringing a good energy to the project is just as important, if not more important, than the technical side of this. Flexible in budgets both small and large, shoot me a message about your project and I'd love to talk about it and see if we are on the same page!
Am happy to do any work as "work for hire" so you can keep 100% of your royalties. 2 free revisions per project(Unless something was my error), after that a small fee will be applied to each further change. Price will be dependent upon scope and scale of the change.
Here's some recent songs I was producer/writer/player on.
Lets make some music!

3 ReviewsEndorse Graham Mallany
Graham is an all star musician and star studded producer to say the least. His musicality is through the roof and his concept of melody is even higher. I love writing with Graham because you can bet your ass he'll come up with the guitar riff to start the entire session and get things moving. Solid musician and an even better dude. I don't call him "Grammy" for nothing.
Graham is an amazing talent. We have worked together on many projects, in a variety of genres, and I have yet to find a weakness - he does it all! He excels equally at crafting beautiful melodies and lyrics, and at production and vocals. Graham can take your project from the seed of an idea to a polished finished product. I highly recommend working with him now, before his star rises out of reach :).
I have worked with Graham in multiple projects! We have written together and I have also hired him to produce many demos for me. Graham is a great producer and really helps to bring my songs to life! He’s a talented songwriter with great ideas and beautiful melodies! I really recommend working with Graham while you have the chance. Graham is a very skilled multi-instrumentalist as well! His musicianship, production and writing skills will be a great asset to your project!
