WRITING FOR SYNC
Writing music that evokes emotion while following a formula music supervisors crave is my specialty. When I’m not writing for pitches, I’m executive producing sync projects for artists. The idea is to help artists create an additional stream of income while elevating their careers with high-profile ad/TV/film/promo placements.
Notable sync placements include:
NBC, ABC, CBS, Revlon, Burt’s Bees, Doritos, Freeform Network, Comedy Central, The History Channel, STARZ Kids, The Good Wife, Grey's Anatomy, Shire Pharmaceuticals, Happy Madison Productions, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (2014 film), Father of the Year (2018 film), and more.
WRITING FOR ARTISTS
My success with artists revolves around writing a solid top line. I enjoy writing colorful, thoughtful, and clever lyrics that are universally easy to understand. See clients on 'credits' list below.
My workflow is straight-forward, thorough, and always inspired. Turnaround time depends on the breadth of your project. If you're on a tight deadline, contact me for expedited pricing.

Ashley is my go-to girl when I want a hit! Everything she writes, from lyrics to melodies, is beautiful and sounds like it's come off the radio! Finding Ashley is hands down the best thing that's happened to me in 2020!
Ashley is an absolute pro and joy to work with. This is our first job together but confident there will be many more. She went above and beyond to deliver on this project by helping me craft a song for sync, while still keeping it true to my style, and has connected me with many amazing people in the industry. Total pro and lovely person. #genuine
Ashley is a FANTASTIC songwriter!! I have hired her many times to write a song from scratch, and she always writes interesting lyrics and memorable hooks, and delivers on the brief. She is also very flexible with feedback and notes, and easy to work with. One of the best songwriters on Soundbetter!
Ashley is such an immense talent with a sharp eye for detail. Not only can she deliver on a creative level, but she is also masterful with editing and vocal production. Extremely professional and very easy to work with.
Ashley is the absolute best! It was such a great experience working with her and I hope to work on many more projects in the future! She is a super talented songwriter and vocalist and one of the most professional artists I have had the pleasure of working with.
YEAH BABY! Ashley is worth every single penny. I was stuck with a complete case of writer's block and could not finish the lyrics to a song. I gave her the basic premise and she ran with it and came up with killer words that perfectly matched the music. She really put her heart into it. Very impressive and highly recommended.
Working with Ashley was an amazing experience!!! She is FANTASTIC! Super professional, creative and friendly. She took my ideas, some of the lyrics I had and transformed into a pop song. I'm definitely working with her again soon.
What more is there is say about Ash other than...... SHE THE GIRL! Ashley is practically perfect in every way - the Mary Poppins of music who will make your song shine! She's my go-to singer-songwriter and I apologise, Ash, because it's gonna be that way for a veeeeeery long time! WHOOOPA!
Ashley is fantastic songwriter. She is super open and responsive to feedback, and can adjust her work and musical style to match your needs perfectly. She wrote a full song (music and lyrics) from scratch. 3rd time working with her, and I've already hired her again. One of the best songwriters I've ever worked with! :-D
Working with Ashley was awesome! She was so friendly and creative! Took an idea and created a amazing song! I can't wait to work again with her!
Nothing to complain about. She was consistent and well organized.
The talent and expertise Ashley brings to vocal performance and songwriting transformed my song into more of what I wanted than I’d thought possible. She was responsive, professional, and incredibly fast, and approached the work with respect and a generous spirit. I am thrilled with the result.
One of the best songwriters in the biz. I've known her for many, many years and she is also one of the best humans on the planet. You will love working with her so I highly recommend messaging her immediately!
Working with Ashley was an incredible experience! Her work made our songs better than we could have imagined. On top of that, we were able to establish a professional relationship where creative input was able to flow both ways freely. Her detail-oriented approach helped guide our tracks where they needed to go. For a top-of-the-line creative experience, I can't recommend her enough. Thanks Ashley!
Ashley was the perfect mix of professional, approachable and friendly from the outset.
She understood everything that I was looking for in a song and took my imagery and emotional outline and ran with it.
She came back with exact song I wanted. I could not recommend her more and cannot wait to work with her again.
Ashley did an exceptional job of reworking the lyrics and then masterfully adding music.

Ashley did a fabulous job with my song... she brought the fun, passion, and great vocals that resulted in exactly what I was looking for. Am looking forward to working with her again soon!
Reviewing Ashley... Where do I start? I guess with the fact that SHE'S AMAZING! She is by far one of the BEST songwriters I have ever worked with! Her lyrics are perfect, her melodies are perfect and her songs are just perfect...and that's coming from someone who NEVER uses the word perfect! That's just how good she is! If you work with her, though, you ought to be warned: she will blow your mind. Ashley, YOU ROCK!
Ashley is so great to work with! VERY talented songwriter. This is our 3rd project together. She has written 3 songs from scratch, really listening to the brief and delivering exactly what I wanted. Creative, responsive to feedback, lyrics are dynamic and colourful, and super friendly and easy to work with. I can't wait to hire her again!
What can I say? Ashley is literally the best thing that has happened to my music! She is unbelievably talented and can turn your beat into a song that will blow your mind!

Ashley is a super talented songwriter. She wrote a completely original composition from scratch, including sharing lots of ideas and collaborating on the whole process. In particular, she has a great talent for responding to feedback and adapting her approach according to your needs. It's like she was in my head, she understood my wishes so well.

Very easy to work with, writes what your thinking before you even think it!!! She makes the writing process so easy and effortless!!! I would suggest her 10 times out of 10
Omg Ashley is a beast she is super professional with Uber talent she definitely will exceed your expectations!!!!
I had the incredible pleasure of working with Ashley on CBS's Mission Unstoppable in a segment about music production where she co-wrote and produced an original song in real time. It was like watching a magician. When it comes to lyrics and melody Ashley is a force and rare talent that anyone would be lucky to work with.
Ashley is a musical virtuoso with a a ridiculous amount of studio and songwriting experience. She can write, compose, topline and be the glue a session/project needs to hit the mark. Super professional but she keeps the mood inspired and fun. Hire her now.
Ashley has a serious knack for songwriting. I've never worked with someone who is able to deliver both catchy and emotion-driven songs quite like she does!
Extremely professional and incredibly versatile. Ashley always delivers with flying colors.
Ashley is a beast in the studio! Great lyrics and melody, and an instinctual understanding of how to bring any song to life. Cannot recommend her enough.
Every single time I've worked with Ashely, I've grown as a songwriter. Plain and simple. She is smart, talented, quick, and versatile. She brings so much light to a project, and her understanding of songwriting is impressive. I mean.. I could go on and on. She is an asset to any song, any session.
With it comes to lyrics, melody and vocals Ashley is the triple threat! No matter the genre she has you covered. Heck, she can even kick the engineer out of the chair and run Melodyne!
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ashley on multiple occasions and she is always the very embodiment of professionalism. She is skillful, knowledgeable, driven, and as if that wasn’t enough, extremely friendly and funny. I can’t recommend her enough.
Interview with Ashley Levy
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is the deadline? Do you have any sound/vibe references for your project? What do you want to feel from the vocal performance?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: It might look like I'm slacking off on my phone in a writing session, but I swear I'm in a shared note working on lyrics!!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: It feels like I get to be in a different band every day.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog will always sound warmer and more alive, but digital is easier on the wallet. Waves has a collection of bundles that imitate analog tape beautifully and I use them on pretty much everything.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Day-to-day I am working the sync world, but I always make time for artists I connect with and believe in.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Recently I wrote a children's album for RuPaul's Drag Race superstar Nina West. She wanted an album geared towards modern families in the LGBTQ+ community, which was uncharted territory in the children's music world. It was a unique challenge that was received with so much love and support, and I'm so proud to have been a part of it.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Assuming I have some solar power panels -- MacBook pro, Apogee Duet, Fender Standard Strat, U-47, Aston Halo Reflection Filter.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: My career started in Music Therapy, working with autistic children in New York City's most low income special needs schools. I was always co-writing with local music artists, too. While I was in grad school, I was asked to write for some high-profile artists in Los Angeles. Great opportunities kept presenting themselves on the West coast, and I eventually pressed pause on the Music Therapy track and took a chance on myself as a professional songwriter. Here we are 10 years later, and I'm still very much in love with music.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Yes! If I think they fit the needs of a project, I'm happy to refer them.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Always be crystal clear about what you want. Providing references is key! We are music wizards, not mind readers.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: 9 times out of 10 I'm working out of a boutique recording studio in Los Angeles that I share with my production team. I work in ProTools and Melodyne on a Raven console. The outboard gear is a Neve 1064, UA LA-2A, and a U-47 mic inside of an air-tight isobooth. I have a mobile base for when I'm on the move consisting of an Apogee Duet, Slate VMS L1 mic, and an Aston halo reflection filter.
