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 ranges from 1-5 days depending on the breadth of your project.

Ashley's professionalism and vast musical knowledge helped raise the bar for our entire project. On top of that, her patience and friendly manner make her a joy to work with. I can't recommend her enough. Five stars, for real!!!
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: 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.
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: 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 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: 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: 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: 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 do you like most about your job?
A: It feels like I get to be in a different band every day.
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 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: 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.
