I wrote, engineered and co produced a song "Killswitch" that got on Spotify editorials and has amassed over 7 million streams. Aside from that I'm a producer/songwriter that has ran an online business for the majority of my adult life. From services to credits I've been able to do music full time for the past 4 years.
I want to mainly focus on record producing and songwriting. Whether an artist wants to give me a brief on the style of song they want or if they want me to just use my creativity alone to work on their next song. My main goal is to help aspiring musicians like myself make great music and sonically take their brand to the next level. I won't overcharge, I want to be an affordable resource on this platform.
I will mostly strive in Hiphop, R&B, rock and indie
I am trained in multiple DAW's and can play multiple instruments. If anyone orders work from me it will be 100% original and won't use samples or have to outsource for other production or instrumentalist.
