If you're head's about to explode, stand near a canvas. This is a hyperbolic way of saying to capture your emotions and direct your energy into your art. How do you transfer your life and experiences into music? I can help with that. I can unglue those words stuck on the tip of your tongue or find that sound buried in your head.
With a BFA in poetry and creative writing, I can help elevate your ideas, and if you're struggling with what to write about, we can talk it out. If you just need someone to bounce your ideas off of or edit your work, that's cool too. As a professional writer, it's easy for me to put myself in someone else's story and help them develop it into something that resonates with a large audience. Any genre or gender. I've written and ghost-written hundreds of songs alongside some of the best, including Ken Lewis (Kanye, Eminem), Jenna Andrews (Benee, BTS, Lennon Stella), and Jackson Woods (Shawn Mendes, Mario).
As a producer, I specialize in anything that juxtaposes polish with grit. If your song feels flat or lacks dynamics, I can help with that. Are you unsure how to arrange your song? Maybe you have a great song, but just don't know how to edit vocals. As someone who has been a studio engineer and touring live engineer for artists like AlunaGeorge, Santigold, Declan Mckenna, and Smokey Robinson, I can help you mix, edit, and anything else you need for your song. I can identify the strengths and weaknesses of your track and help you overcome the latter.
The Process? Every client is different. But FaceTime/Zoom/Whatsapp chats are always advisable. Revisions are okay and often encouraged to get it right.

Song doctor is right!! Haha. I've used Brandon a countless number of times for help with lyrics, as well as other production and/or mixing services. He's a beast at what he does and not to mention a standout dude!! I have and would highly recommend working with him if given the opportunity to do so.
Delyzer is a master in capturing and delivering interesting soundscapes. The added production and morphed hook melody really brought my tune to a place I couldn't even see it. And I like that.
Interview with DeLyzer
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on my own solo project fairly heavily and writing a lot for sync. Check it out under my artist name DeLyzer.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Why choose? A tool is a tool. There are benefits to both in all situations. Sorry to all the purists out there.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To listen and to try to whatever you're working on to a higher level.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Song first. Ego last.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Ryan Tedder - I love his energy and feel like we'd vibe well Banks - She's right in my wheelhouse of style The Prodigy - So I could die happy
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't start your track first by listening to what other people are doing. Just do you.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Everything. Check my discography. www.delyzer.com.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Lyrics and additional production. I like fixing songs that are 90 per cent there too.... so I would say my critical listening and ability to tell what's making the song not work and what is.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My ability to leave my bias and personal experience and write from someone else's perspective. Concepts. My lyrics are artfully incongruent.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: If it's a writing session, I like to take at least 30 minutes or an hour to get to know you. Same if I'm mixing your live show. I want to know about you before we get to the music. That's important. After that, it's important to be like water and go with the flow. Always be recording from the start because that's usually when the best stuff happens, when everyone is feeling it. If it's mixing your track.... it's 4 cups of coffee and my cellphone turned off.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It's comfortable. Mood lighting, good couch, La Croix in the fridge. It's been sound-treated by some of the best in LA, and every synth, guitar, etc is plug and play for easy flow. The rest is just gear talk.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Anyone who is doing something new. Banks' background vocals (credit to Sohn too). Stars' songwriting. The Weakerthans' lyrics. Two Feet's riffs. Skrillex's ability to produce any genre. It's important to work with people who inspire you in some small way.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I do almost everything. I started out as an engineer working with Grammy-nominated Producer Joby Baker. In big studio writing sessions, I'm often the engineer, but I'm most-often hired to do lyrics and help develop a concept with an artist. When it comes to production, I lean left and favour anything that juxtaposes grit with polish. I help electronic music producers or DJs arrange their music when working with a vocalist, and I tour doing live sound (FOH and Monitors). I build studios. There is no common.
