3 ReviewsEndorse Savi Smith
Savi is just great! Great creative guy that simply thinks outside the box, defies the conventional and pushes to find new barriers to cross.
I felt very comfortable working with this awesome musician that without a doubt will go far!
Listening to this Savi’s music has never failed to brighten my mood. Throwing on some of his beats, then kicking back and relaxing will hit something different in you every time. Whether it’s his style, attitude in his songs, or that he puts his heart into all of it, his music will always stand out from the rest. You can tell he is passionate about what he does and it always shows in what he creates, and it’s from this authenticity in his art that lets you get lost in the music.
My experience working with Savi was wonderful. I told Savi I was unfamiliar with how this process worked, and had been taken advantage of in the past by an artist. Savi kindly walked me through the process, and answers all my questions about the writing process.He made me feel so comfortable and I was able to open up. Needless to say, the song came out great! I definitely plan on working with him for future projects! Thanks again!

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Ive been making music forever to be honest, but I think I really decided to be a musician once I hit eighth grade though. I grew up playing a lot of live instruments like the guitar, clarinet, and violin. So once I started writing in middle school everything kinda fell in to place for me. I never really saw myself not making music you know?

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I normally start my session by playing an old film or rom com on mute with an instrumental playing in the background. During this period I spend time learning the beat and finding as many melodies as I can before I start putting down words. Once I've recorded some reference melodies I double back to find the one that I like the most and start finding the lyrics.

A: Everyday life mostly, seeing how i'm a very visual and audible creative. Taking my experiences and making them something I find sonically relatable. Might be a phrase or even just a simple word to describe my mood or current vibe is enough to bring me to a song.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: As a song writer, my best advice or biggest tip is just "Feel your way through it."
