Hey! I'm a producer, songwriter, + vocalist who specializes in pop music. As an artist myself, I love helping other artists bring their song to new heights while giving it an extra tinge of coolness that's hard to come by. I look forward to talking with you about your next project! :) - xo K808
Lady Luck Studio is spearheaded by K808 - a songwriter/producer/artist who makes pop music with an edge from the ground up. Growing up in the rustbelt city of Youngstown, Ohio forced her to be DIY enthusiast from the very beginning. While she admits that it once felt like a disadvantage, it's what became the source of her greatest strength. "Without knowing any pop producers, I had to bring my songs to life somehow," she says. "None of them would exist today if I hadn't forced myself to figure it out. It was learn or give up."
Luckily, she fell in love with the process of production, which her gave her strong songwriting sensibilities even more room to grow. "I'm a writer at the core. Everything I've learned so far has been for the purpose of making bulletproof songs without having to rely on a million other people."
As an artist, however, she thrives on collaboration. "I write on my own a lot and I love it, but co-writing is invaluable to me," she says, "There's so much you can learn by watching how someone else's brain works." She regularly has video writing sessions with other artists and songwriters from all over the country.

I've worked with Lady Luck studios for over a year now. We started with production and now mostly co write together. I feel absolutely spoiled working with Kate. She has the most clever lyrics and always seems to smooth out any rough edges my songs may have. She's creative and patient and an amazing collaborator that truly knows how to create a hit
Loved working with Lady Luck Studios again!My song sounds amazing and our collaborations keep exceeding my expectations.

Oh, my, GOD. I can easily say that she is now my go-to for everything, whether it be for lyrics or an instrumental. She's an absolute wonder to work with, she's so patient and constantly took my ideas into account. The result of her work is better than I could've dreamed. Thank you so, so much!! I cannot wait to work with her again! <3
Kate is, great. Her quality and style really stand out the most. Her catchy pop leads make me wanna throw up with excitement! I reccomend working with her to take your songs to a place that includes edge, style, and most importantly quality. She also knows pop music really well so all her suggestions always feel
I absolutely recommend 150% K808 Lady Lucks! This artist, songwriter and mixer is the real deal. I sent my track, a small set of lyrics and the next day received an amazing song. Everything I images it would sound like, lyrics, ect... K808's Lady Luck brought my track to life! Thank you and hope to work together soon!! 😊
Working with K808 is amazing. Her lyrics and melodies are like a super power. They seem to just fall out of her head effortlessly. The sweet, special quality of her voice makes her demos stand out and sound unique.
K808 has a knack for everything pop. Melody, Lyrics, bumping production. Get with her while you can. This girl is going places.
Interview with Lady Luck Studio
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I recently came home from playing Red Rocks with a band I play with called The Zou!! It was every bit as magical as you'd expect. I also produced the lead single from our new record (Kills Pt. 2) called "Holy Moses," which has been called a "masterpiece" and a "sonic step forward" by reviewers. A short film I produced over the summer called "Taper" (dir. Paul W. Sauline) won the award for "Best Short Film" at the Los Angeles Independent Artist Film Festival, which I'm incredibly proud of. I was also featured as a "Writer to Watch" by the Nashville Songwriters Association International after sharing a song I wrote for my new record called "Young + Hungry."
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love every aspect of it. I love sinking my teeth into a concept or a lyric that needs some help. I love singing, and I'm good at it, so I'm happy to be the voice of your song. And I love the pictures I can paint with a track. It's all so much fun for me.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I make sure I know what they're looking for - if they want help making a full pop country record, I can help them find someone else, but I'm honest if I feel I'm not the best fit.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Pop music is heading toward less chords and more rhythms, so focus on those in production. I usually start with chords as a guide, and then decide whether I need them or not after my vocal/rhythm parts are done.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Pop music is all about clarity and creativity. I can look at lyrics and tweak them until they're concise, understandable on the first listen, and above all, artfully worded - all while keeping my clients original vision intact. I'm proudest of my ability as a writer.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I'm a very focused lyricist and I love dealing with concepts. I have a soft spot for fun rhythm patterns that aren't simple "four on the floor" beats. I bring a coolness to songs that's rare - especially in the world of demo making. I make it fun.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: On my website, I describe it as lush + thumpy alt-pop. I'm consistently thrown on playlists alongside Halsey, Banks, Tove Lo, and CHVRCHES.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Alt-pop. It's structure can compete with any Top 40 song, but it's production is a little more unique. I also write Americana/folk music, but it's not my main focus.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I love being involved from start to finish! I usually take a look at the lyrics/concept/melody ideas I'm given and go from there. I rarely use scratch vocals - I like diving into the arranging process pretty quickly. When I'm given lyrics/melody ideas, I'll make my tweaks, run them by you, and get them back to you really quickly.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I find the most inspiration from Bonnie McKee's writing style, Dr. Luke, Diplo. I love the pop writing structure, and knowing when to break the rules. I really loved Barbie and the Rockers as a kid, and it's absolutely inspired my sound. The Beastie Boys and the Flaming Lips inspire me, too.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I produce edgy, forward-thinking pop music for my clients from the ground up, including help with lyrics, production, concept, and vocals.
