As a songwriter who’s worked with R&b artists (such as Ty Dolla Sign), Country Artists, Pop artists, Rap, Trap, Hiphop, and even Rock artists (such as Lacey Sturm). I can Guarantee that whatever style you’re looking to create or recreate, We can make it hit the mark as well as sound like what you have been hearing in your head.
Originally from WV I began my professional journey with music at the age of 15. At 18 I relocated to California where I began to craft my ability as a songwriter, not just as A musician. I would go on to work with several big names behind and in front of the scenes That helped me hone in and craft my skills and understanding of music and the industry. The biggest thing I’ve learned that I see as my biggest talent or service I offer Is the power to properly listen. I learned very early on that there’s a special way every good songwriter listens. They are able to hear every piece of what makes a song and understand what can be copied or what is always implemented to ensure that style and what can be bent or changed to make something new. I have a specific process that ensures I fully understand what you are hearing so that I can help you get what you really want out of the Lyrics melody and over all structure of the song. Past all of my qualification however I strive to be a positive energy and fun person to work with as well as extremely professional and timely. I’m here to get it done whatever you may be picturing, we will work until it’s accomplished!
