I'm a modern musician based out of New York who specializes in all styles of popular music. I played guitar at Carnegie Hall's The Lead Belly Fest alongside the likes of Buddy Guy and written, produced and mixed songs that have been synced in commercials for Neutrogena, Victoria's Secret etc. Signed to 25th st/Raleigh Publishing

I'm capable of making tracks and mixing them in almost any style in my home studio, as i do a lot of for hire commercial work. With songwriting and singing being my first love, I can also top line or write lyrics and melodies on tracks that are given to me. I'm also a professional level, touring guitarist and keyboardist. My abilities on bass are very adequate and i can program or record drums

Yes.
How would you describe your style?
Chameleon
What type of music do you usually work on?
Pop from any era, but pop in the old sense of the word meaning popular.
What's your strongest skill?
Passion
What do you bring to a song?
I bring the ability to be objective. I've been called "pinch hitter' because i will do whatever is needed and nothing that isn't.
Tell us about your studio setup.
Modern and modest, i have alot of great mics, instruments and software i run through logic on a 27 inch iMac. I run and Apollo interface with Event 2020 speakers in a sound treated room in my apartment. I use mostly Addictive, Battery, Vengeance and THATSOUND drums, a variety of softstynths, mostly Sylenth, Waves Codex and Arturia. Also have endless guitar gear and software.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I like a little bit of everything from all eras but i mostly look up to the way Ryan Tedder can do ANYTHING. Produce, write, sing, perform, shred on keys, so thats what i aspire to some day...tall order
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Most of what I do involves either starting writing a song from scratch or taking a song written by me or an artist and producing and mixing it for them
