What do you bring to a song?
I think my biggest asset is being able to produce although my writing is to match. Lyrically, I bring lyrics that really resonate with my fans and people in general.

What's your typical work process?
I use Ableton and rewire most other daws that can be connected. I have no bias when it comes to music because everyone and every program has something to contribute that others do not. I like to shut out other music and try to work on my own sounds, ones inspired by myself. I use loops and sample from time to time as well. My main goal is always to just make something high quality and unique to my style at the same time.
