Versatile composer and producer with experience in different styles or genres of music including but not limited to cinematic, rock, electro, pop/contemporary, indie pop, etc...
I cover a great deal of territory these days in regards to styles of music I can produce. But I will admit to having a tendency to compose music with a cinematic feel regardless of the genre. Ideal instrumental productions/tracks for singers looking to then add their vocals. I have many years of experience working with different artists and songwriters so I always keep in mind the structure of the track allowing for vocals comfortably and easily. Or if you prefer to keep it instrumental we can do as well.
