I am an artist and writer signed to Sony ATV working on music for major TV shows and movies. I do a few different sounds outside of my main artist project (RAIGN). I am looking for new collaborations in the following genre's:
Dark/Epic cinematic/anthemic vocal music - ie Lorde - Everybody wants to rule the world / RAIGN - Knocking on heaven's door
Uptempo driving emotional songs with a rock feel - ie X Ambassadors - Safe and sound
swampy evangelical or conflict based songs- ie the theme tune for True blood or Sons of anarchy
uptempo hipster band sounding pop slanting songs with positive concepts - of Monsters and Men or the song for the Microsoft tablet campaign or just about any t-mobile commercial etc
Anthemic and inspirational pop songs - Katie Pery - Rise / Sia - I'm Alive
Straight Guitar vocal modern folk songs with a dark emotional vibe - Johnny cash - Hurt.
Please get in touch!
I also sing on EDM tracks for a fee so if you are a DJ needing a vocalist please hit me up! unfortunately I cannot allow my vocals to be bought on a work for hire agreement (unless its internal demo use only) and cannot write songs without gaining publishing.
