Hi! I'm a full-time songwriter and producer signed to Warner Chappell, working in a production studio in Nashville, Tennessee. It is my full time job to collaborate and carryout the vision of artist starting from a simple idea and developing it into a finished product - I would love to hear how I can help.
I've worked with grammy award winning artists and songwriters/musicians who have been behind the hits of Ed Sheehan, Camila Cabello, Thomas Rhett, Julia Michaels, Taylor Swift, James TW, Colbie Caillat, etc.
I've been hired to work with artist and writers from all over the world including LA, Nashville, New York, Miami, London, Berlin, Bogota, Toronto, Tokyo, etc.
I spent four years studying under a hit songwriter and producer - working with A list artists and helping young artists find their unique voice
I've had my songs and productions air internationally on major network television shows and commercials such as ABC, NBC, etc.
I spent four years studying Audio Engineering Technology at Belmont University

Interview with Dave Villa
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I typically work with pop/urban artists but I enjoy working in all genres.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Greg Kurstin is the most brilliant songwriter/producer. He always knows how to best aid the artist; for example "Hello" by Adele: he knew that Adele is one the best singers in the world so the best thing he could do was stay out of her way. Filter all the instruments and drums and let the vocals shine.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: The big picture. Who are you as a songwriter/artist? I love to connect the sound to a person's personality - "I have been trying to get that but I didn't know how!"
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always let the vocal shine
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I grew up in the deserts of Arizona and I can tell you that you can get away with more than 5 pieces of gear :)
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Open communication
