A topliner who specialises in modern RnB & Soul.
I am a professional songwriter who has worked with both signed and unsigned artists. I specialise in modern RnB & Soul but have worked across a variety of musical genres.
Listen to some of my demos for an idea of what I'm all about.
What do I offer?
Lyric Writing - I can write to a theme that you suggest or put forward my own ideas. I love telling stories through songs and crafting lyrics that are cool, yet meaningful.
Melody Writing - Composing catchy melodies is one of my strengths. Years of studio work has helped me to understand how to create melody lines that suit the artist.
Contact me if you want to know any more details! I would love to work with you and write some great songs which I know you will love.

Interview with David Nind
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Do you produce music or make beats? I can but I am currently focusing on songwriting. Can you finish a song that I've started? Absolutely. Many great songs are written as collaborations and I'm sure that if we work together we can come up with some fresh ideas. What if I don't have any ideas of my own? Not a problem. We can work together to find your sound and work on lyrics that you feel represent you.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What type of singer are you? Who are your main influences? Do you have a link where I can hear your work? What kind of song would you like me to write? Do you have any references I could listen to? (Songs that you like) Do you already have a beat or chord progression in mind? What would you like the lyrics to be about?
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: For over 10 years I was a touring and studio musician, working as a keyboard player and drummer. Although I do still play live occasionally I have turned my focus to songwriting and am enjoying being more involved in the creative process.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is writing hooks. This is the part of the song that I love because it's the bit that everyone remembers and it gets to the heart of what the song is about.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My first job is to understand your vision. We will typically discuss reference tracks and lyrical themes together and then I get to work. I keep you updated as I'm writing so that you are happy with the direction that the song is going.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I grew up listening to RnB music from the 90s and 00s but I keep up with the modern sound of artists like H.E.R, Ella Mai, Bryson Tillier, etc.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I work as a freelance songwriter. I've worked across many genres but find myself mostly called upon to write RnB and soul music.
