Hilaire Charles on SoundBetter

D.C. based Producer, Songwriter specializing in World/Afrobeat, Pop, R&B, and CCM.

Hello, I'm a multi-genre producer/songwriter based in D.C., also work out of Atlanta, Miami, and L.A. I play keys, make beats, compose, produce vocals, and arrange strings. I have a wide range of musical influences including World, 60's oldies, Contemporary Christian Music, Gospel, Pop, R&B, Indie Pop, Hip-hop, and the latest charting music.

I take great pride in my work and pay close attention to detail. My job is to help you create emotion and identity for your project or song. No cookie-cutter production here.

Currently working on projects for August Alsina, Tamar Braxton, Chris Brown, and other up-and-coming R&B, World, and CCM artists. Current placements on T.V. shows and documentaries.

    Hilaire Charles has been a valuable asset to my musical development. I have worked with many producers with the attempt of getting airplay and work. It wasn’t until my working with Hilaire Charles that I was able to have my music on the radio three years on rotation. He is an asset to the music industry not only for his musical skills but for his courage and boldness to venture into uncharted territory in developing the artist, business and musical fusion.

    Hilaire Charles is to music a ventilator for covid-19 patient in icu. He breathes life and intention to any record he comes in contact with. He does this the form of creating a timeless culture-groove-thing that evokes a sense of something old, something new, something borrowed and definitely something blue.
