Hi! New here. Creating music is more than a passion for me. It's a lifestyle that I live to the fullest which translates into every musical piece I create. Everyday life experiences, from the good to the bad and ugly, are the right fuel that I need to make raw and original music that stands out from the rest.
My sound and writing style is very rare and unique. And be assured that every song that I write and music that I produce is coming from the gut of my heart and soul.

Some of my musical skills include: Song/Ghost Writing(Lyrics), Beat making, Remixing, and the ability to take a simple melody or musical idea and turn it into a full-fledged arrangement.

Interview with Nomadic XXL Music
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: One project that stands out to me is Song(Lyric) project I acquired on a site called Songbay. I sold 5 songs off the rip to 5 different artist. One of the artist was so impressed with my work that he contracted me to write 10 extra songs for him. Made some good money of that. Very proud moment right there for the little quiet kid from New Orleans.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I've been making some good money within the Music Licensing spectrum of the Music Biz. My main goal is to place a track in a Huge Commercial or Movie. I'm very close to making this happened. Stay tuned. I'm also selling Beats to up and coming artist. I'm constantly dropping projects on Spotify and Apple music.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'm just starting out so I can't really speak on that.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital is cool if your just making music for fun in my opinion. But nothing beats the sound of Analog...it's a no brainer. I can clearly hear the difference from a Digital and Analog recording. Implementing both of them is a must in my opinion.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Passion, Heart, Soul, and Quality work which equals a satisfied customer.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Music is my life, heart, and soul. It's the only thing I've ever been really good at and enjoy. School was never my thing and I've never been the life of any parties or that social. So most of my time has been spent crafting music on a daily basis. It's literally like a drug for me. If I'm not creating my nerves get jittery. That's a good thing as far as I can see because it keeps me knocking out tracks. I treat music like a puzzle and love putting musical elements and pieces together
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How long will it take you to complete my project? I usually answer this one with a...it all depends on my workload. But my most prominent answer is 1-3 days tops.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I work really fast. And of course some people don't believe that fast work equals quality work. I'm so skilled and seasoned at what I do that it takes no time for me to complete projects. I have some killer formulas and templates in place that keep me very productive and producing high quality work.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: If I'm working on a Song(lyric) writing project, I will ask the client for subject matter, some basic ideas, and direction of song. I will definitely need to know about format requirements as far as Bar, Verse, and Chorus Structure. As far as Beat-making and Producing, Same questions will apply to this also
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Let the music or lyrics speak for themselves. If you are impressed by the samples on my page or anybody else's page, it's worth giving it a try. The Bio is very important also and the Q and A section of this site.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Imac, Reason, Midi Keyboard for sure, Avalon Pres, Pro-Tools HD
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I'm just a lover of music. It's that simple. I'm not a very systematic person when it comes to my music career like some people are. Don't get it confused though, I stay on top my Biz as far as making sure I get compensated for my music. My focus is to make music that I feel in my heart and give it to the people through Digital Streaming, Youtube, Music licensing Companies, and more. I don't follow trends that much...maybe here and there. I've been creating music Pro. for 15+ years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: One thing I've come to realize about me is that, I truly create music from my heart and soul. I know that sounds cliche but, there are plenty of producers/beatmakers/writers who tend to bring more of a technical aspect to music making than the actual emotion of the song. Not saying that is a bad thing at all. But I stand by the fact that my music is very raw, unique, and rare more than it is technical. I always dare to do things musically that some musically technical musicians don't understand. But my fans do get it and constantly praise me for it. I'm just different and can't help it.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Tough One. There's so many I would love to work. I'll go with NAS though. His music is just so groundbreaking that it can't be denied. The way he tells stories through his rhymes makes you as the listener feel like your inside the Rhyme or song. He's one of the few artist that can rap over a Commercial type beat and still maintain who he is as a lyricist.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Quantizing Drums at 50% is a Tip that I abide by. I alway try to make sure my Drum Patterns don't sound to Robotic. This works well for me in Reason. Another great Tip is to realize that music is Math. You can take melodies, Drums, and more musical elements Speed them up Double Time or Slow Things up Double time to create some unique vibes. This is an idea I apply when making music. And it makes my workflow much greater and much easier to bang out tracks faster than usual.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip Hop is my Strong point for sure. But I'm well rounded in other Genres as well.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I would say Song(Lyrics) because I can knock those out pretty fast. Beat making and producing is a very strong skill of mine as well. It just takes a little more time building off someone else's idea.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Passion, 15+ years experience of skill, Heart and soul.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When it comes to Song(Lyrics), It doesn't take much for me to get things going. All I need is subject matter and a few ideas. I've been writing songs for years and can say I have perfected my craft and still getting better. I'm very fast at writing at this point. As far as Beat-making and Producing, I can approach it many different ways. I can make a beat based on subject matter, create a piece based off of an Acapella, I can take an existing Idea or Melody and turn it into a full Arrangement. Hell...someone can simply whistle a tune, record it and send it to me and I can turn it into a musical piece.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: As far as beat making and producing, My Setup is simple and effective. I Use REASON 11, FL Studio sometimes, and FIREFACE 800. I do all sequencing, arranging, and mixing in REASON software. I am not a pro mixer or mastering engineer but, final product is audible enough to translate to buyer. That being said, I provide Audio STEMS and SONG FILE for all clients so he or she can take song quality to the next level desired. When it comes to Songwriting, I use the good ole Pen and Pad and subject matter to build off.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Dj Premier, Mannie Fresh, Timbaland, Pete Rock, DJ U-Neek, Eminem, Kanye West, Dr. Dre, Neptunes, 9th Wonder, and more. I love all Genres of production. If it's really creative...I have no problem digging it.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Some of my musical skills include: Song/Ghost Writing(Lyrics), Beat making, Remixing, and the ability to take a simple melody or musical idea and turn it into a full-fledged arrangement. Hip Hop, Pop, RnB, Trap, House(light), and Soundscapes are some of the Genres I produce. Occasionally I like to take many genres of music and sort of mash them together to create a unique musical texture.
