Producer, Songwriter, Topliner seeking awesome songs to create
I'm offering all services related to making straight up bangers.

I have a full studio setup and specialise in logic pro X. I've been a producer for over 10 years working with many differing kinds of artists.
I am not genre specific and can make a song for any genre you need.
I am also a topliner and melody creator and adore lyricism. If you provide a theme, I'll provide the lyrics (and melody if required)
My turnover is extremely quick and I often finish projects within a day of receiving.

I've worked with Steve for over a year and he'll always be the person who comes to mind if I'm ever struggling with lyrics. I don't know anyone else who's lyricism is so strong and who can write so many in one session. Steve has helped me write some of the most vulnerable songs of my career and not once did I feel rushed, instead he creates a really safe, honest and open space to work in.
Steve's so well rounded and such a great guy as an added bonus, he brings a wicked energy to any session, an absolute pleasure to work with.
I have worked with Steve for over a year and a half now & we've written some of my favourite songs together. He has a great attention to detail and as a writing partner isn't lazy and always goes for what's best not what's easiest. One of my favourite people to write with and it's clear that he really loves music and it's not just a job which is important for me when someone is working on my music :)
I've worked with Steve over the last 3 years or so and will continue to work with him for the next 30! Always bring great energy and positivity to sessions, Steve is a multi-talented writer, producer and vocalist that has no limit to his creative ideas and he's always first to mind when i need someone to collab with.
Great Producer and Songwriter - Steve is very easy to work with from a session musician's perspective and doesn't waste time in the session. He's a great musician and that really comes out in the sessions as he fluently integrates song-writing and producing. All while being a really nice guy!
I've had the absolute pleasure of mixing some of Steve's solo project.
From both a musical and production stand point he's top quality. He has a wonderful sense of melody and what's right for a song, the way it feels and grooves.
He also happens to be a decent, honest and friendly guy which helps!
I can imagine writing with him would be a joy for anyone.
Steve is such a talent, love working with him.
We first worked together writing songs for other artists but as soon as we did our first session together I knew I had to have him on my artist project. His ear for toplines is unique and really sticks in your mind. He's also a great producer and really versatile with styles and he keeps working until the song really pops. Such a lovely guy too.
I’ve worked with Steve for just over a year now, first working in a songwriting session for Nia Ekanem. He’s one of the most reliable musicians I’ve worked with- consistently on time, never cancels and always provides location to record.
Steve adapts his production to suit the artist effortlessly and being an artist himself, he understands the importance of leaving the artist room to create and express ideas freely before contributing his thoughts.
There’s never any pressure, he provides a super relaxed environment to work with and he’s become a great friend as a result.
Worked with Steve for the last 5 months and have loved it. He’s great with song structure, lyricism, chord progressions and melodies. I’ve come to him with some near finished songs and some ideas for songs and what we create is always top quality. He takes a song idea and adds his experimenters to make it better. Couldn’t recommend him higher.
