163k Spotify / 5.7m YouTube streams so far this year 💪🏼 -- I specialize in singing and writing pop/r&b/edm style hooks, let's bring your vision to life!
Hey! I'm a full time live performer and recoding artist living in SF, California. I grew up in a small town listening to classic rock and motown, and those influences have stuck with me even as I've moved into pop, electronica, r&B, and EDM style music. Because I'm constantly performing pop/top 40 covers, I always have my ear to the ground for new trends/what's fresh, and I take that into the studio.
🎵Performed over 500 shows, performing for 10+ years
🎵Top 100 in The Voice season, Won Great Alaska Vocal Competition, Won Alaska's Got Talent
🎵Opened for Snakehips, Eric Hutchinson, Danielle Bradbery, and more...

Conway is a talented dude. Clean, on-point writing and a vibrant delivery in his vocals make him an absolute pleasure to work with. He was also great at communicating his vision which made my job as a producer fun and rewarding. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for pop or R&B toplining!

Nice guy, great song, quick/clear communication. I hope to work together again soon!
I had a half written song I brought to this guy and he helped me finish the writing, add not only a killer bridge but also the richest harmonies and guitar solo you’ve ever heard. From songwriting to producing to everything performance, this guy can do it all!
Interview with Conway
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I have worked with Rob Murray and AxeFollin, both of whom I would highly recommend.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My song "Longer" was released by 7clouds record label a few months ago. I was the singer/songwriter, and also co-produced the song. It's been my most streamed song to date (100k+ on Spotify), and was a testament to what can happen when you work hard and stay creative.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I have several songs committed to various labels coming out within the next few months, and I'm working on writing more to stay ahead of my release schedule.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Very few people can actually tell the difference, especially the audience. Our job is to tell stories, not get hung up on gear. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to treat your project with the same level of creativity, work ethic and attention to detail that I treat my own.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to be creative in the field that I love the most; music.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Most frequently I get asked my personal opinion about ideas, tracks, hooks, melodies, etc... Instead I try to stay objective and ask... Is this what's best for this song? For this genre? Is your vision/story being told in the way you would like? That kind of perspective will help you grow.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Despite being a singer/songwriter, not once have I cried tears on my guitar :D
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What existing songs (references) do you want your record to sound like? Do you want me to take creative liberty, or do you already know exactly what you want?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don't just look at what people say about themselves, look for someone who already has success in the area you want to grow/hire.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Macbook, Apollo Twin Preamp, Shure Headphones, Rode NTK Mic, Electric Guitar
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been a professional (paid) musician since 16, and by 19 performing was my only source of income. Since the pandemic began I've shifted my focus to my true love, which is recording and releasing original music. I'm 24 now, and plan to continue helping other people with their projects while I grow my own career as an artist.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would describe myself as a blue-eyed-soul artist. I love pop, especially when it intersects with hip-hop/r&b/soul genres.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Quinn XCII -- I love the way he's blended pop/electronica/r&b genres and have been a huge fan for the past several years.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: When you're creating, focus on one thing at a time. If you're writing a topline, make sure you're writing to a professional beat, even if you plan to make a different beat later. Don't try to do both at once.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Songs that need strong, rhythmic lead melodies. I prefer to work in pop/edm/r&b/hip-hop genres.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: The greatest challenge for any artist is to be different and familiar at the same time. The mark of a novice artist is they are either 1) Too obscure/weird to be relatable or 2) Too similar/copying another artist. I write and sing in a way that is unexpected and new, but still feels familiar enough to resonate with people.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: The vocals are the focal point of most songs; it's what the listener resonates with the most. Good writing and singing goes beyond mere skill, it's about self-awareness and expression. It's telling the same story (love/sex/breakups) in a new way, or through a lens that people haven't heard before. When you work with me you don't just get my talent, you also get my life's experience. People can hear that in the finished product.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I work in two phases. The first is a creative, uninhibited session where I get as many ideas out as possible. From there I switch to a more analytical editing mode, refining ideas and deciding what belongs in the song and what doesn't.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work in a home studio, and typically record on my Rode NTK Tube Microphone. I use the Apollo Twin interface (which has amazing preamps), and then record into Ableton. From there I use Melodyne to tune my vocals, and iZotope Nectar from there. For demos I will add CLA vocals at the end to really get that big, crisp pop sound.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Maroon 5, Quinn XCII, Chance the Rapper, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Train, Khalid, DNCE, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I specialize in singing and writing toplines.
