I'm an award winning music producer, songwriter. I am currently writing and producing with major label artists/Producers, including Charisma, Bad Royale, Anderson Paak & 1500 or Nothin, I also provide Mixing, Mastering and lead singer vocals to songs for chart topping EDM/Hip hop artists. I'm currently working on pitching songs with APG.
Coming from India and breaking into the music industry in L.A. has been really successful. I have been producing/Writing for 8 years. I have worked with several upcoming and known artists such as Kehlani. I have been working in studios with major production company 1500 or nothin & Cassius D Kalb in L.A. Vocal produced vocals for Charisma, Mike Jay and Damien Dash.
My main genres are commercial chart music including pop, electronic, Hip Hop, Rock & dance. My writing is very commercial/Eclectic sounding and produced from my top of the range project studio in L.A. meaning that artists will get radio quality recordings and mixes. I own hundreds of world class plugins, instruments, samples, virtual instruments and microphones. If you're in Los Angeles, you are welcome to come round to my studio to record! If not, I can work remotely and still produce that Top 40 chart sound for your song(s). A lot of my Soundbetter clients are international clients and we work very effectively together.

Working with Cal will leave you feeling like a winner;He really understands the advantages of getting his songs heard.
I look forward to working with him on my next projects.
Calvin has been a godsend for my project. He is an excellent producer and really helped bring a story to life that I could have never done myself. We worked from start to finish on a 3 song EP that has turned out beyond my expectations. He has been very helpful throughout the whole process, and is always advising on what the next step should be. If you want your story heard come to Calvin!
