Skyler Kilborn on SoundBetter

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. 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.

{For songwriting I only write if a share of publishing is an option. Or a mix of publishing and upfront payment.}

    Skyler knows his stuff and creates some top quality music. He is easy to work with, quick to respond and knows what he wants. I would recommend him on any collaboration. I would be honored to work with him again!

Interview with Skyler Kilborn

  1. Q: What's your typical work process?

  2. A: For top-line work, I try to understand as much 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.

  3. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  4. 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. :)

  5. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  6. A: Electro/Indi Pop, pop, rock, film scores.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: I would have to say songwriting from scratch.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. 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.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. 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.

  13. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  14. A: Top-Line Songwriting, Songwriting, Track/Vocal Production

Midi Matilda

I was the Singer/Songwriter instrumentalist, and Co-producer in this production
