I am an ASCAP Music Creator & Publisher and Founder of Loudo Media Ltd, a multidisciplinary project that supports DIY artists from songwriting to mastering direct-to-fan strategies.
I started my career in professional music as Music Editor and PR Manager for two independent internet-based publications in 2011, writing reviews of newly released records, conducting interviews with musicians, and creating EPKs and traditional press kits for the roster of local labels like the Italian Audioglobe.
During those years, not only I had the chance to meet and interview some of my favorite artists in the flesh (Ladytron, The Black Keys, Kill It Kid, Portugal. The Man), but I also succeeded to be among the first in Italy to write of acclaimed artists like Lana Del Rey, Lorde, and Sam Smith.
Working as an Editor and my last job for a Google Partner company, where I had the opportunity to work on several music-related projects, reignited my passion for songwriting.
I teamed up with Music Producer Dennis Ognick to release a song called Paris, sung by Georgian artist Irakli Chabiev, and we have a few other projects together on the way.
What do I offer?
1. Songwriting services
I have both a creative and analytical approach to songwriting. I use song deconstruction and chart metric data to understand the actual music landscape.
2. Top Line / Vocal melody
Creative visualization helps me to put my words into music.
I work with Music Producers.

Interview with Sebastian O.P.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'm open to everyone who believes in what they do. I believe in passion and how contagious it is. I love different cultures, different genres, and I want to know you through music.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I don't have a specific genre. I've grown up listening to David Bowie and Michael Jackson. My taste, though, has changed over the years. I've had my share of indie bands during my teenage days. Now I'm definitely more into alternative R&B and Electropop.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When I write a song from scratch I like to create a story first. I write down the sequence of events that will eventually make up that specific song. I like to use beat-making software to create a temporary dress for the song. If I have to write on top of an existing track, I can also create both the lyrics and vocal melody by having different takes.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on an EP called The City as both the songwriter and featured artist under a different pseudonym. The release date of the first single is not yet scheduled but could be early next year.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: In some occasions I write the lyrics and visualize the melody at the same time, or write lyrics on top of an existing harmonic progression.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I've grown up listening to different genres of music and been surrounded by creative minds. PJ Harvey is my favorite storyteller. I am a huge fan of Hip-Hop storytelling with artists like Common and Talib Kweli.
