The Secret on SoundBetter


I've been writing/producing music for the past 14 years. I've had training from a Multi-Grammy winning mastering engineer - Recently got back from living in NYC and have had some great meetings/connects over the years with Atlantic Records, XL Recordings, WARP Records, Temporary Residence, NUE Agency, Partisan Records, Conde Nast, Low Profile NYC, MATTE Projects, Droga5, and more regarding future plans.

THE SONG AWWAYS COMES FIRST - Therefore, I primarily focus on songwriting/production. Can track/edit/mix/master as well. Rates are dependent on project.

Fucking try me.
