I'm a keyboardist, producer, and songwriter best known for my work in the award winning writing / producer duo, Solu Music. Our song Fade, was in the top 20 in multiple countries. I know what it takes to create, and the focus and emotional energy needed to fulfill a vision. I love collaborating to help others bring their musical dreams to reality.
When playing keys, I know when to fill the gaps, and when to leave space and let it breathe.
I find the emotional and sonic uniqueness of your song, determine the musical approach and sound, and explore before I record.
I've performed everything from simple piano parts to soulful rhodes. Soaring organ / synth solos to epic string arrangements. Dance-floor filling house beats to chill electronic vibes, luscious pads, and throwback R&B.
Whether laying the foundation for a song or giving it the final finishing touches, I'm here to partner.
