Grant David Gilbert on SoundBetter

I am a songwriter-producer capturing the sounds in your head. I'm a multi-instrumentalist, and do it all- engineer to master. The most recent project is ‘Nyla Fairway.’ Let's make something that has gravity- I have the canvas, paint and polish.

I was classically trained on piano.
I learned guitar and bass, and became a guitar teacher.
I formed and walked away from bands.
I played music in the streets, and bars, in New Zealand and Australia for two years.
I now make records.
I’m here to help write, produce, and mix a session // develop demos // and master.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
