I'm a Producer, Sound Engineer and Songwriter. Graduate of BIMM Brighton in Music Production. Making music and sound design is my passion, I aim to have a unique approach; experimenting with vintage sounds, sampling, guitar pedals, programmed beats and genre crossovers. I want it to stand out to any other project you or your friends have heard.
I have been writing and producing with various artists over the past five years and I produce many genres and always looking to be challenged. My specialties are within guitar and programmed beat based music (indie pop, RnB and Yacht rock). I'm a 360 degree producer - I compose music, produce beats and arrange songs. I can play and record piano, synthesizer, acoustic & electric guitar, electric bass and drums. I tune/edit/process vocals and mix & master. I have my own studio in London, UK. I work manly with Ableton Live and Logic Pro X with countless software plugins.
I'd hope to inspire you with creative sounds, beats, hooks and atmospheres. I always emphasise on good communication to fully understand your vision of the style, sound and aesthetic for the production.
I'm heavily influenced by Haim, Tom Misch, Sampha, Anderson. Paak and Phoebe Bridgers. These artists in particular as their music displays excellent musicianship, brilliant writing and the sound design/mix and master has such an active approach of effects that reflects on the message/characters within the content. This is what I'd aim to achieve.
