I love walking in the room and wowing people with my melody and chord selections.
I'm Atjones a musician from Selma Alabama. I have more of a world sound mix with a flair of soul. My music has a lot of live instrument presents. In high school I studied upright bass and got an opportunity to study with Cleave Eaton famous bassis who played with Count base band. I also started playing piano in church at a young age that gave me the ability to travel to different cities like Chicago, New York, and Atlanta never having a problem with employment because of my slick ear and exposure. Doors really open in my travels, and I was fortunate to accompany Stevie wonder, Tye Tribbett, Michael lynch and many other artists that exposed me to many different styles and flavors.
My service is for:
~ Producers who like drums but need melodies and chords.
~ Beatmakers who can't play any instruments and need midi or wave files to stand out.
~ R&B, GOSPEL Songwriter who need demo done
