Jesse Barnes on SoundBetter

Writer, instrumentalist and producer with an empathetic approach to each song. I often build a track around the writer's sketch of the song in order to retain its original intent and feel. After touring internationally for many years I'm mostly writing and producing in Brooklyn these days.

I'm a multi-instrumentalist and producer in Brooklyn, New York. Guitar is my main instrument although I often play everything myself except live drums. I have experience in most contemporary genres, especially singer-songwriters, pop, bossa nova, hip-hop and soul music. After working with a broad range of artists from Aloe Blacc to Snarky Puppy, I'm lucky to have assembled a colorful musical pallet to pull from.

Hit me up for a link to records I've produced or worked on but here are some things that I can help you with:

- production
- co-writes
- guitar/bass/keys
- beats
- mixing
- vocal production and tuning

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
