    M.L Scribes is one of the most incredible writers I've ever had the pleasure to work with! He wrote 3 songs for a pop artist under my label and I was blown away with his writing, fast turnaround, and professionalism. In my opinion, M.L Scribes writes from a very truthful and soulful perspective. It's as if when I'm listening to his songs, It's easy to visualize the storytelling and feel genuine emotions being conveyed through his writing. M.L. Scribes is also very easygoing and a pleasure to work with in the studio. He has also provided excellent vocal coaching and artist recruitment services.

    M.L Scribes is the real deal. Musician, lyricist, singer, and rapper. When working on my project for STORMCLOUDS/SONY-RED I enlisted the talents of M.L Scribes for multiple songs and he did not fail! Every song he touched was taken to a new level. His new project is another great sampling of his many talents. Love it!

    M.L Scribes has to be one of the best songwriters I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Not only was he open to my creative input as a vocalist, but every time one of us had an idea, the other was already 10 steps ahead, arranging the next part. It was a great working experience. Just good, fun, creativity- the way it’s supposed to be.

    Mark is awesome! We worked together on a group of demos for songs that he wrote on his own. His songwriting is outstanding - catchy hooks and melodies and I was constantly impressed by his harmony ideas as well. Mark has tremendous diversity in the genres he is capable of writing in. He was easy to work with, easy-going, and professional. I couldn't ask for a better client. Don't hesitate - if you need songwriting - mark is your guy!

    I hired Mark to work with one of my artist last year before the virus and he knocked it out of the park. He was attentive to my artists ideas and vision and brought a fresh set of eyes to our project with his skill set. Can't wait to with him again in the future. Anyone who hires him as a writer has struck gold. 10/10 would recommend
