Paul McElwain on SoundBetter

I've been writing, producing, and engineering for 10 work has millions of streams on digital retailers. Spotify, Soundcloud, etc. I have written and produced for pop artists like LAUV and Fall Out Boy. I traveled the world as a DJ performing my own music for years and now have settled in Chicago to do more studio and engineering work.

I began as a bedroom producer at the university of Illinois in 2010. I learned to DJ to show case my work, this took me around the world performing in places like Vietnam, Mexico, Germany, Italy, and all around the United States. I do my own vocals, I write for myself and others, I engineer my own vocals and others, I produce beats and full arrangements for myself and others. I do a bit of everything but my primary focus is in vocal engineering and writing melodies and hooks for myself and others. I used to be just an EDM producer, that taught me a lot and I have a vast skill set in producing but I prefer to work on vocals and melodies etc.

If you need your vocals engineered into pop sounding professional vocals, that is my forte, if you need hooks written or verses written in the pop hip hop style, that is also a specialty of mine.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    Paul has a way of bringing my song to life in remix form that is so special. I worked with him on a remix and he took the time to really get to know what I wrote the song about and deliver a new result that was so different, unexpected and beautiful. I loved working with him and he is so creative and talented. He’s super fun to work and really cares about your insights during the process. Also just an all around badass producer/remixer.
