NYC-based songwriter with strong ability to compose catchy pop music from the ground up.
Hey everyone, my name is Andrew and I am a songwriter living in Manhattan. I have been writing music at my piano for as long as I can remember. I have a very good ear for what makes a pop song catchy, memorable, and impactful. My ideal setting would be working with a singer or a producer that needs assistance with the composition side of a song. That can mean starting a song completely from scratch or it can mean just adding in or revising to a pre-existing composition. I am happy to work on songs remotely or travel within the NYC area. Please feel free to reach out with any ideas or questions and we can take it from there.

Interview with Andrew C.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Move around with relative major/minor keys in your song.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Usually I write pop songs
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is in my composition. I have a strong sense of what chords go well with each other. I also have a good ability to make memorable melodies.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Impact and catchiness. A great pop song should have a memorable and catchy melody, and should have some type of emotional impact.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Generally I start writing a song by making chord progressions. Once I have a set of chord progressions that I'm happy with, I'll start to work on the topline. Otherwise, if I get a previously made track, I'll listen to it and play it on my keyboard, and then write the topline.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Just myself and a keyboard!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mostly what I do is composing music for other people to perform. That can mean writing a song from start to finish, or just writing a top line melody to complete a song already in the works.
