I've been making music for almost four years now, and I've produced everything from acoustic ballads to trap bangers. I care very deeply about what I do, and I will not quit on a track until everything is perfect.
I can produce instrumentals for a myriad of genres, mix vocals, and mix and master the track. I can take your musical endeavors from idea to completed song, as I have experience with every step in the songwriting, recording, mixing, and mastering process.
