Tempo on SoundBetter

Wassup! My name is Trevion “Tempo” Gold. Songwriter/Vocalist.. I've written for artists like J.Lo, T.I., Robin Thicke, CeeLo & many more. I am also an ASCAP Television Music Award winner for my vocal work on dozens of television shows. 4 years ago I started a company called G.O.A.T. Fuel, and have scaled it to $10 million annually. Let's build!

Everything is negotiable, I'm just here to make your song sound AMAZING and help take you to the next level.

On a side note, I also do consulting. So if you need someone to help you on your music and business journey, I am literally the best and most qualified person to have on your side. For G.O.A.T. Fuel, I am Co-Founder, Chief Brand Officer and Creative Director, so I handle all Branding, Marketing, Design and Product Innovation.

On the music business side, I've written for a lot of big artists and have been a vocalist on a lot of TV shows. For example, I wrote and sang the theme song for Kevin Hart's show Real Husbands of Hollywood. I also wrote and came up with the AKA for J.Lo which became the title track for her 10th solo album. Sometimes it's not just about writing or singing a song, it's about the entire ecosystem, strategy and planning that goes with it. I am here to help make you successful. Let's work!

    Good job, inspired lyrics, great flow. Would recommend!

  5. Review by Glenn B.

    I hired Tempo to sing a song I wrote & produced.

    Unfortunately I didn't have the best experience with him. He's is a talented vocalist and provided cool harmonies. That being said:

    - There's a whole verse missing
    - The material is unusable due to 'room' & noises on the recording

    But what stings the most; he promised a revision after the second payment. Now we are two months and several promises further and still nothing. Wouldn't recommend him for this service.

  6. Review by Henrique N.

    Tempo not only has a great artist name but IS also a very professional one.
    Delivered high quality work on the time predicted. Will recommend to colleagues and surely "use" him again on future work.

  7. Review by Dewayne J.

    When Tempo recommended a complete rewrite of my song idea I was hesitant because I was really feeling what I had composed. Yet, realizing the benefit of being open-minded and trying different things, I allowed Tempo to do his thing. He did a great job!! The rewrite definitely was a much better fit for the places where I want to pitch it.

  8. Review by Keren E.

    Tempo did an incredible job with the vocals on my tracks. He brought the songs to life and I especially loved his harmonies. He also took the time to share valuable perspectives to develop my own skills as singer and songwriter. I can’t thank him enough. Highly recommend him for whatever your needs are related to your art. He can do it all.

  9. Review by Leonardo C.

    my first track together with "tempo" dates back to 2 years ago, i was very satisfied with the work done, so 4 months ago i decided to propose a new job at "tempo". When I received the demo, I wasn't very convinced, he told me to work on it a bit and if in the future there had been something to change he would have done it easily. unfortunately it did not go like that, I asked politely to recant the song, with the same words and the same melody with a small variation after trying to modify anyt

  10. Review by Joseph K.
