I will turn your song from being a draft or a 8 bars loop into a whole finished product ready to be released.
I mix and master my sessions and provide stems if needed.
I have a jazz background, so I can play multiple instruments (I'm a specialist in guitar, bass, synths and programmed drums).
You'll be featured throughout the process stages and I will provide the best sounding draft straight from the beginning by matching your reference tracks.
I don't ask for shares of copyright / royalties, so you will own 100% of the production. work for hire.
Hit me up for price inquiries and questions, I'm open and flexible.
