Award-winning singer-songwriter and producer (ASCAP) songwriter, and vocalist specializing soulful pop music, contemporary and classic.
I've been called-in by songwriting legends for production, arranging, songwriting, beat-making and demo vocals (Ashford & Simpson, Desmond Child), and have been producing my own projects for over a decade. I'm great at studying a sound and figuring out how to get in that lane with a unique twist.
Let's get your project finished. I can help with all things production: lyrics and melody, beat-making/composition, arrangement, and vocals. I also play keys and guitar. I specialize in classic and contemporary R&B/Soul and Pop music.
If you're an indie artist paying out of pocket, let me know and I'll try to work with your budget.
