I wanted to move to Nashville after high school and just write songs for the rest of my life but "go to college" they said, "get a degree" they said! I graduated college in the middle of a pandemic so here we are. Let me write a killer bridge for you
I have been writing songs since I was 11 years old. Writing lyrics is where I'm strongest, but my skillset also includes singing (vocally think Stevie Nicks meets Selena Gomez), producing, background vocals, melodies. My sister has taken my synth keyboard hostage so to produce I will be using SoundTrap. I have original music and covers up on Soundcloud, and one original song on iTunes and all streaming services. I also have a Youtube channel and where I post covers. I took a hiatus from posting content while I was getting my degree but offline I never stopped. My musical landscape is wide - I grew up listening to a range of music from Ice Cube to Fleetwood Mac to Britney Spears to Red Hot Chili Peppers, so my perspective is fresh and unique each time I sit down to work on something.

Interview with Cali Fannin
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm writing for an EP that I'm planning to put out at some point in the year. I've noticed I'm writing some songs that feel really big in emotion and storytelling and I'm excited to bring them to life.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Jack Antonoff - he just has this very innovative way of crafting a song that also still feels timeless in a way. Also, look at any song he worked on; in each one, the singer's voice tells the story in its own way. I love that and I gravitate towards that level of storytelling.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Ciah Fannin - she's my sister and she inspires me so much. Although we're sisters and we feed off of each other when we do work together, our musical perspectives manifest in different ways. Ciah is a creative genius.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Introduce your song as it builds and make sure it's building to ~something~ whether that's lyrics or part of the production
Q: What do you bring to a song?
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Taylor Swift, Now, Now, Jack Antonoff, The Civil Wars, Kings of Leon, Snow Patrol, Dixie Chicks, Fleetwood Mac, Frank Ocean, Halsey, Miley Cyrus, Aaron Dessner, Lorde, Machine Gun Kelley, Phoebe Bridgers
