I'm a Singer/Songwriter/Producer here to help you achieve your sonic dreams! I help artist applying for Factor grants to polish their songs and demos before submission. I help bands arrange instrumentals and vocal harmonies and produce full length albums.
My specialty and background is in songwriting, though I have a degree in sound engineering from Recording Arts Canada. I can help you with lyrics, with chord progressions and writing bridges to give your songs more excitement or I can provide fully written songs for artist to perform. I can also provide beats and backing track for multiple genres from pop to rock to trap.
