Highly experienced with over 15 years of Songwriting, Top Lining and producing experience. Currently living in LA. I love to collaborate! My goal is to use everything I know, however I can, to help you discover and/or finish the next song or album you're currently working on.
I've released several original records as the front man and co-producer for the band Midi Matilda which currently has around 100,000 monthly listeners on Spotify . I have also co-written and co-produced with many amazing people including John King (Dust Brothers) and Tom Peyton (Panic! At The Disco, Pitbull).
I was recently a co-producer and singer in an original composition for a 2019 Taco Bell commercial campaign. Nacho Fries!!
I have a passion for any and all types of music, if we work together I will give it everything I have until the finish line.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Interview with Skyler Kilborn
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: The first vocal take is usually the best. I pride myself for being able to turn demo vocals into solid lead takes, almost always to the surprise of the client. :)
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Electro/Indi Pop, pop, rock, film scores.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I would have to say songwriting from scratch.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to think that I bring a unique blending of melody choice and rhythm, as well as an empathic sense of what the artist is trying to say. I don't like melodies and lyrics that feel recycled and too familiar, I aim to make every song I write a unique poetic experience.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For top-line work, I try to understand as much as I can about the artist/project as I can. Who is the person that will sing the song, what do they care about, what is the song/record pointing towards? The more I feel connected to the project the better. Then I take 2-3 days to write a song from scratch, on an already existing track/demo, and once the song is ready I edit, comp, and tune the vocals until the idea is fully represented. For production work I prefer a similar level of connection and understanding to the album/project. Once I have some good references and a solid direction to go in, I take 3-5 days to complete the full track. I prefer to have demo tracks, of any quality, to build off of.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I mostly work out of my home studio which has everything I need for songwriting and production work. With complete vocal booth isolation, high quality vocal microphone, guitars basses and synths, as well as a powerful computer loaded with a ton of plugins to get the job done right, I'm confident I'm the right person to help with your project.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Top-Line Songwriting, Songwriting, Track/Vocal Production
