I'm a solo singer/songwriting producer from Los Angeles
I have a background of about 8 years in film, while I was working on music alongside this I eventually stuck to music full time so I have been producing for about 5 years now. Having that background in film lends a huge hand into the way I approach songwriting, meaning I like to think of a song like a movie. I specialize in guitar tracks, backing vocals, mixing, and melodies of all kinds :)
