Want meaningful lyrics or a great beat for your next song? I'm your guy. I specialize in hip-hop, R&B, and Indie songwriting and production, but I'll write/produce for any genre/style. We'll dig into the theme and the message you want to get across in your art and come up with compelling beats, lyrics, and melodies to bring that vision to life!
I have been producing music for 8 years and have started to distribute my own music independently for the last year under the name Compro, amassing over 35,000+ streams from beat tapes and a full EP. I have experience working in Logic Pro X and Pro Tools and can create full instrumentals and melodies from scratch (remotely or in-person). I have worked in home studios, as well as professional studios in Los Angeles and Syracuse.
Give me a chance to prove to you that we can take your song to the next level with great writing, compelling melodies, and meaningful theming.

Interview with Trey Jennings
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm proud of my second beat tape "Tropics at Dusk." Conceptually, every song is an hour of a night in paradise. I arranged it well and showed some awesome versatility!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on singles and building a company!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital for now because it's easier. If/when I have money, it would be fun to do things analog. It's like driving manual vs. automatic. Analog(manual) makes you feel like you have more control.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that you will be happy with what you get. I won't stop working on it until you're happy with it. You're paying me to help you, I'm going to do my part to make sure you get your money's worth!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love working with people.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: People think it's easy. It's not.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What type of song are you trying to make? What are you trying to say on this song? I like to also get to know people and how they got to where they are and how they came up with the idea.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Go with someone you'd be comfortable opening up to.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My AKAI Midi Controller, My Bass Guitar, My iPad, Studio Monitors, and my Shure SM7B
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been producing music for 8+ years. I have been writing music for 2/3 years. I started of wanting to solely do production, but I evolved into writing my own music and creating songs/projects.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would say I have a very dark, ambient, and smooth style.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: There is a long list, but at the top I would say Drake. Not only is he a great writer and vocalist, I have loved what he has brought to the records he's been on. He brings his ambition, his individual style and versatility, and I would love to watch him work.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Layering is very important. Introducing new elements/intstruments builds out the mix and prevents the listener from feeling like the record is stale.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip-hop, R&B, Indie. I love dark and ambient vibes. I love Late Night productions.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My writing is my strongest skill, though production is a close second (lol).
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a deep passion for the lyric content of the song and the message the artist is trying to get across. I have expertise with creating melodies and beats, but the most valuable part of pairing those skills with my passion for writing is that it really hammers home a level of meaningfulness missing in some music today. Songs for fun are cool to, I just think there's so much to be said, especially now; and finding compelling and layered ways of saying those things is amazing!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to start with a conversation about the work, maybe jot down some major ideas I want to get across on the record. Then I will produce the record and write to it. Melodies and mixing take place during the process in real time, but I do like to commit time after the track is produced, arranged and the vocals are done to listen closely for ways to improve the mix as a whole.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a home studio at the moment. Shure SM7Bs for vocal recording, light audio treatment in the room, studio monitors and headphones.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am inspired by Boi1da, Jordan Ullman from Majid Jordan, MeXikoDro, and the KOUNT. Though they are all in vastly different sonic lanes, they have a versatility and intricacy in their production that is a marvel to behold.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Beatmaking is the most common type of work I've done, but I have done a good chunk of work as a songwriter for various individuals or groups I worked with unofficially.
