That song you have inside your head? Let's get it out.
I'm a producer and songwriter in Oakland, CA. 10 years of production and songwriting experience, specializing in contemporary RnB, chill electronic, pop, and hip-hop music.
I want to take that song you have playing in your head and turn it into a reality.
Recorded a demo on your voice memo app in your bedroom? From my studio in Austin, I can take your demo or top line and provide a beautiful orchestration beneath it - giving your idea the stunning foundation it deserves.
I love to work with new artists aren't afraid to try something extraordinary.
Together, we'll make sure your song is complete and ready for recording. Then we'll collaborate on ideas for arrangement and I'll write and perform the parts to track (Ableton). Finally, we'll make edits to the recording until we're happy with the final product, and I will prep the session for mix. If you need help finding recording, mixing, and mastering engineers, or are unsure how to ready / deliver your song for distribution, I can help you with that too.
I'm ready to help you make music that captures listeners. Contact me and let's get started.
Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

It was great working with Davis! Great communication and great track. I'd love to work with him again!
I honestly could not say enough to even give this man's talent, creativity, or professionalism any justice whatsoever. Davis "Yandi" is by far the best producer I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
I've been working with Davis for a little over 2 years as he co-produced and mixed the first track I ever put out on streaming platforms. Since then we have worked on multiple tracks together, some projects getting started from simply finding a random voice note in my phone and Davis turning it into a fully well thought out professional composition. Trust me, he's the man for the job.
Look no further than Davis (aka 'Yandi') to take your idea and absolutely run with it..
I've been fortunate enough to work alongside him these past few years and have learned so much in regards to songwriting/composition, sound design, production techniques, etc. Having personally collaborated on many songs, I'm constantly blown away at how he manipulates sound to create something so unique & moving with ease. I have the utmost confidence that you will have a finished product that you will proudly push to your audience when all is set and done.. A+ recommended!!
Yandi is hands down one of the best producers I have ever worked with before. The things I have witnessed him create and how fluid his creative mind shifts is something to admire. He is extremely professional and a phenomenal communicator. One thing you can always expect from Yandi is how honest and upfront he is. He is not shy to let you know his opinion and whether an idea works for the composition or not. That is a rare gift to possess and I absolutely recommend anyone who wants a high quality product.

A: Trust the first idea that comes into your head. It may not be the idea that sticks but it's the first step towards the next one.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I would say my best skills is pushing artists out of their comfort zones. I always think there's another level of potential artists can unlock and usually it just takes a push from someone. Another skill is being able to speak honestly when asked my opinion. Beating around the bush is nothing more than a waste of time.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to set up a call to not only go over the track, but also to get to know you. I think relationships are extremely important in music and having a human conversation to get to know each other lays a great foundation for collaborating. I want to know the why behind this song and be able to capture the "you" in whatever we write together.
