What do you bring to a song?
I bring melodies, vocals, vocal production. Whatever the song needs in order to come to life.
What's your typical work process?
I believe every song is a masterpiece that involves several creators. I listen to the track and allow it to tell me what it needs (that might sound creepy, sorry lol) I'm usually listening for a melody or lyrics, whichever flows first.
The other process is that I will come up with a lyrical concept first, while listening to the track. The melody follows shortly after.
