I've been producing local artists for the past 4 years with my company Trap Noir, since I graduated USC Thornton School of music. I specialize in creating custom beats as well as top notch vocal production/tuning and mixing. I've garnered multiple licensing placements with brands such as Fossil Watches, Five Four clothing and various TV Shows.
I'm a jazz and classically trained pianist that majored in music at USC. I'm proficient at Ableton and Pro Tools. I can also play guitar and bass.
Custom Beats - I take references you send me and make a beat to your liking based on the references
Vocal production/tuning/mixing - I take your recorded vocals, tune them, mix them down, add effects (delays, reverb etc)
Songwriting - My partner is an expert songwriter who I use for all my projects. She can write lyrics and melodies as well as arrange background vocals for you
Mixing/master - You send me stems and I can mix and master it for you.
