You have a great song, a dope track, but something still feels off. Lets get it right! Sometimes it's a simple fix and sometimes it's not, but lets make it perfect before you release it into the world!
Nashville is Music City! We all know it's known for country music, but every genre is here and some of the biggest Pop, R&B, and Hip Hop artists fly in from LA, NYC and London to work here.
As a writer, producer, and artist in Nashville, I spend at least 5 days a week working on new productions and lots of vocal producing for other artists and writers. I can fully relate to wanting to constantly level up your music. I'm here to help you do that! Let's get it sounding the way you want it for a price that won't wreck your budget! You need to love the stuff your putting out!

Interview with Gatsby
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Most recently finished the Tennessee Titans promotional music for the 2020-2021 season. Being a Nashville local for 10 years and a fan of the team, it was so rad to be a part of creating hype music for the team and fans of my city.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Just finished producing the music to a promotional advertisement for the Tennessee Titans for the NFL. Now working on a production for an artist as well as vocal arrangements for their record.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both have their place. I work primarily in digital or "in-the-box," but I love the chance to work with analog gear. Analog has a warmth and real tactile sound that sometimes can't be replaced by digital.

Q: How would you describe your style?

Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Vocals, Vocal Production and Arrangements

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It depends on what job we are trying to accomplish.

A: Produce and write songs with other artists or writers. I do a lot of vocal production and arrangements, as well as session singing.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Collaborating with others! Its insane to think we create something out of thin air, and then it has the power to move others.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I only do one thing. I'm an artist, writer, and producer, and to me those things are one ecosystem that work perfectly in helping others!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't be afraid to ask another producer with more experience questions. You gotta know WHY you're adding that compression or effect, or when not to.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
