Blake [.Bxyz] on SoundBetter

Your One-Stop-Shop for all things POP (and mixing/mastering but that doesn't rhyme so it's in brackets). Berklee Grad. Own a cool studio out in Cape Town. Love working with new artists and helping them carve out more of a niche sound that their community can really latch onto as their own. All the things you need to get your song bopping: I do.

Back on Soundbetter 2024!

In addition to creating cool music, the experience of working with me will be fun and exciting - we all got into music because we love it, I strongly feel keeping that love for music in our session when writing together or when I'm working on your production etc. will bleed into the music (in a way the listeners will hear). Basically all that holistic music goodness.

I have years of experience with writing for artists signed to major labels such as Warner, Sony, Island, Atlantic, as well as new and upcoming artists looking to find their "sound".

I specialise in anything pop / pop-adjacent and my work has ended up "breaking" a few an artists. Songwriting I got you for any genre or style.

  1. Review by Shane The Crane

    One of the greatest experiences ever is working with this guy. He does everything to insure top quality. My song couldn't have been better with anyone else and is someone you can fully trust. It would be a mistake not hiring this guy

    Blake was great to work with. I reached out and told him that I wanted someone to really create a full song for me since I am jumping back into music, and he was so helpful and really listened to me and my wants for the song. He was a pleasure to work with! Highly recommend!

  3. Review by Pedro Calloni

    Blake Sayer is an amazingly talented songwriter and producer! His lyrics are so emotive and his melodies are so unique, yet still catchy. He works really efficiently and always meets deadlines. He understands the writing process more than anyone I have ever worked with before in my whole life. I highly recommend hiring him for your project!

  4. Review by Dan Gleyzer

    Blake is an unreal songwriter! His musicality and creativity is always fresh and exciting to listen to. If you are looking for some original and exciting music for a project definitely shoot him a message!!! One of my go-to's for sure!!

  5. Review by Hope Brush

    Blake has one of the most unique songwriting styles I've ever heard- in the best way possible. I always find his lyrics to be so original and I love how he manages to really fit them perfectly with whatever melody he's paired them with. His background in production really helps him bring his songs to life and I think he's really found a cool niche in the "experimental pop" world. Can't wait to work with him again!

  6. Review by Dragi Ivanov

    Blake is one of the best songwriters I've gotten a chance to work with. His unique sense of melody combined with his brilliant way of storytelling results in wonderfully crafted songs that perfectly reflect the emotional state of the story that's being told. Every time I have worked with him, he has outdone himself delivering beautiful songs. I could not recommend him enough!

  7. Review by Rollo Spreckley

    Blake has an amazing sense of melody and lyrics that I haven't seen in a long time. Extremely professional and on time, Blake is a world-class songwriter and i'd highly recommend him to anyone. Beautiful music

Interview with Blake [.Bxyz]

  1. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  2. A: Yes, I know Pedro Calloni and would highly recommend him as a mix engineer. I use him for all of my own songs for my artist project.

  3. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  4. A: I have been writing songs throughout my life. I have played piano and guitar since I was a young child and use these skills when writing. I graduated with a songwriting degree from Berklee college of Music in 2016. Since then, I have worked as a full time songwriter in New York and Los Angeles.

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: I consider my strongest skill to be writing lyrics. I have a background in poetry. I have always been fascinated by the way word placement within a musical phrase effects how it is received. Thanks to my background as a vocalist, I have a natural instinct for when one word is more "singable" than another. This helps me combine poetry to music in the smoothest way so that it feels as if the melody was made for the lyrics and vice versa.

  7. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  8. A: Songwriting is a very delicate and personal process. It's important for a song not to feel generic and it's especially important for a writer not to become a 'songwriting factory', churning out the same lines all the time. I always write with an honest and personal approach so that each song is unique and relatable to listeners.

  9. Q: What's your typical work process?

  10. A: Often, a client will send me a recording of a melody (sometimes with an idea for a lyrical concept) and I will write lyrics that fit in the melodic frame. I also often do the same process in reverse, where clients send me lyrics and I write the vocal melody and the music on piano or guitar. When writing toplines, a producer will send me a track, sometimes with a brief with references for what kind of topline they want. I will then record myself singing the topline that I write and send them a demo. I am also able to fully vocal produce myself if needed for the track.

  11. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  12. A: I am a huge fan of Joni Mitchell and her incredible way of using lyrics to tell stories. I find Billie Eilish's expressive melodies and raw lyrical content inspiring too. And I often draw inspiration from James Blake and the way that he uses his vocals as an instrument in his production style.

  13. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  14. A: I write lyrics for a given melody or compose a melody (and the chords, using my keyboard or guitar) for someone else's lyrics. I also write toplines (melodies and lyrics) for tracks that producers send me.
