I have a decade of experience in recording & writing. I write for my own catalog and for artists. I'm a two-time finalist in the USA Songwriting Competition, my album "Gates" was featured in the 2016 WWDC Apple Keynote for the new Apple Music launch, I've completed the BMI SongArts Academy -- I'm signed to a boutique production company in LA.

My strongest suit is RnB/ Pop with nostalgic sensibility. From start to finish, I believe a song has to build emotion and be full of tasteful ear candy & infectious moments. I think a powerful song makes you feel emotions you didn't know you had and keeps you pressing repeat over and over.

When writing Toplines, I will send 2-3 options for melodies, you can chose which suits your project the best. I will deliver the final track based on the strongest melody. My turn around for toplines is 3 days.

When writing Lyrics I will ask a few questions about what type of song you would like (key emotions, genre etc.) and will send a final draft for you to approve. I will do two revisions -- my turn around for lyrics is 3 days.

I would love to help you with your project and bring the magic to your music! Let's get started!

    Mariami was a pleasure to work with. She has a UNIQUE talent with toplines and lyrics. On top of that, she was able to accommodate my request to take song elements I wanted to keep and adapt them. Amazing artist!

    Mariami was a pleasure to work with. She generously added her own creative input and was so easy to work with. Her vocal sensibilities were spot on and brought just the right personality to the song as well.

    Mariami did an amazing job. She gave life to a few passages that I was unsure how to proceed with. She also communicated well and was very prompt in making the recording!

    Mariami recorded backing and lead vocals to a song of mine. What a beautiful work she's done! Extremely professional, with a lovely timbre and also very creative (I gave her freedom and it was more than a good call, she made it better than I could imagine). Let her do what she feels like! She'll make your song sound like it was made in heaven. :)

    Wonderfully talented, organized, and an all-around great person. Excellent voice, and she's someone who meticulously - and quickly - knocks out top-notch vocals.

    Had a great songwriting lesson with Mariami. Learned an incredible amount in such a short period of time and she's one of the best songwriters on Soundbetter. She gave me a great amount of confidence and helped me get rid of a lot of self doubt when it comes to writing.

    Iamari has a truly unique writing voice and instantly brings fresh inspiration to all of her projects. A fiercely hard worker, Iamari also has the level of professionalism and follow-through necessary in a studio environment, and her ability to arrange vocals quickly proves as an added bonus. Plus, she's a great person!

Interview with Mariami

What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
That greatness happens overnight. A successful career in music takes years of craftsmanship, commitment, discipline, technique, practice, study and staying open to growth + change.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Sade. She exemplifies how less is always much more. Subtle, timeless + iconic.
How would you describe your style?
Nostalgic + Urban Pop/ Soul
Can you share one music production tip?
Stand out of your way. Let your instincts guide you and turn off your inner monologue. Don't censor your creativity. Less is more.
