Music Producer

KTGotBeats on SoundBetter

I create soundtracks for storytellers. Helping artists redefine their identity, develop a sound and earn from their music. THERE IS NO BOX. 🚫📦 Producing for artists that have gone on to land distribution deals, be nominated for Espy awards, and accrue millions of streams in over 100 countries. Music featured on shows on VH1, Hulu, Bravo & more.

I’m obsessed with my mission… To help true hip hop and r&b artists have break-out careers without having to sacrifice their roots, authenticity, and culture. The foundation of our genre is and will continue to be story-telling, and until the end of time people will be infatuated with stories. It’s my job to help you, the artist, discover or re-connect with your identity, make real songs, and put you in the best position possible to reap the rewards of your hard work.

I / THE STORY

Every project starts with a pre-production process that allows me to learn more about your story, help you develop (or refine) your artistic identity, and carefully plan out the project to make sure we’re on point to hit goals.

II / THE SUBSTANCE

Next, we dive into the creative process. Everything from custom beats, songwriting, hook writing, mixing and mastering. At the end of phase II you’ll have a market-ready song and will hopefully be the one that changes your career.

III / THE STRATEGY

I’ll assist you with administration, distribution, and general business consulting. I want you to have a plan right out of the gate and make sure that you’re set up to generate royalties, create leverage, and get traction.
