Achieving artist's vision through focus, direction and artistic freedom. That's the goal. An artist needs to be completely and genuinely in love with their songs. After all, they'll be performing those songs for the rest of their worldly career. Finding a sound that is uniquely their own that can stand out in a mass of accessible music = happiness.
With over 30 years in the music industry, I've seen quite a bit come and go. I've worked with some of my musical heroes, international superstars and obscure artists.In any case, it's all about giving what they want AND need. Whether it's production, guitar sessions, mixing, arranging, or even live performance, the outcome is the same : integrity in the music and support of the artist.
Christina Aguilera, Tupac, Prince, Frank Ocean, Mariah Carey, Backstreet Boys, Dru Hill, Celine Dion, New Kids on the Block, Mary J. Blige, Nas, Leann Rimes...that just scratches the surface of artists that I've had the pleasure of working with. I'm always amazed when I look back, but looking forward is so much more exciting.
There is so much music to be made and so many great artists to work with. I look forward to every project and strive to produce timeless songs that will touch souls for generations.
