Akini Blake on SoundBetter

I have over a decade of experience in recording and songwriting for myself as well as other artists. Studied at Berklee and a member of The Recording Academy. It'll be an honor to contribute what I do, to your creative process.

Hi Guys!
My name is Akini Blake and songwriting is what I live for:) I write for my own catalog and for other acts, many of whom have had major success in the industry.

My strengths are R&B and Singer-Songwriter records. My voice blends well with acoustic instrumentation containing compelling builds. I have a clean falsetto and a naturally warm sound. I write radio-ready songs and always keep my finger on the pulse of current trends. Not so much to fit in but rather to keep a fresh sound.

I find that perfectionism isn't conducive to authenticity but I do aim at getting close enough to where the emotion spills out of the speaker and into the direct center of the listener.

With each new project I undertake, the goal is simple. To create art that keeps the listener's device stuck on repeat.

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.

    Akini is an excellent artist and songwriter. Working with him is such a powerful experience. He dives into your soul to find what u need for your song, he ask questions, he’s always communicating with you he’s writing skills are so freaking awesome! And he’s also a very good vocal producer. He has good ideias for harmonies I can keep going. The song he wrote for my ep is so far the one people likes the most
