I have over 360 songs written from ages 12-present age of 18. They're all pretty darn good, and I'm only using some for my own project!
I am best at writing lyrics, I can come up with lyrics very quickly and easily that also make sense. I specialize in darker themes (melancholic, gothic, grungy) and poetry-like style. When I say I write I freakin' WRITE! I am willing to write/co-write lyrics for other artists, as long as I'm credited for what I contributed.
I do not produce for others or do vocals for others, just in my own music (Bansh111).

Interview with Judah Pimentel of Bansh111
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: BRUISE ep. It was my first EP and is pretty good for a first project. I was the producer, lyricist, and singer in all the songs.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My first album and a ton of music videos for the songs featured.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not that I know of.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That they'll in one way or another enjoy what I make them.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That I can express and help others with my talents.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: If I'm okay, and I say yes I am I just write darker lyrics that can potentially help a listener with whatever they're going through.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I'm not talented.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is the overall theme of the song in three words?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: What do you mean? I don't know, hire me? haha...
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Well they wouldn't work on a desert island, so probably just my phone with a GarageBand app, water, and three journals for writing and drawing.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I want to write lyrics, be a touring musician and successful artist/business owner selling my art and music.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Weird, Post-Genre, Industrial Pop (soon to be hybrid metal when I get a band).
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: There's many, but I definitely want to make a song with Lady Gaga. A heavy Europop fist-pumping song like her Born This Way album style. I also want to make an entire album that's post-genre mixed with metal, alternative, and indie with Twenty-one pilots one day (Josh's drum energy and Tyler's screams would be great for hybrid post-genre metal lol).
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't give up and be authentic, be who you were created to be regardless of what anyone says. If you have a gift use it.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Industrial, Electro-Pop, Alternative
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: definitely lyric-writing, I'm great at coming up with rhythms too, but can never write them down.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Words that need to be heard, really great lyrics. Also, an interesting twist of a rock-style voice mixed with electronic/industrial-pop instrumentals
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It depends, sometimes I write songs in five minutes and record vocals right away, and other times making music can take months for me.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a corner in my room hidden behind tapestries and blankets with a soundproof wall around my condenser mic, with my adapter and keyboard nearby.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am heavily inspired by Lady Gaga's entire projects, Plumb (Tiffany Arbuckle-Lee) Lyric/songwriting as well as Sia's songwriting.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually write lyrics with darker themes (melancholy, loneliness, depression, overcoming, redemption).
