Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
I recently finished and released my first album 'No Eyes' and it is available everywhere. I produced, mastered, recorded and mixed the entire album myself.
What are you working on at the moment?
I am busy working on my second album and making music for other people.
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
I just stumbled across this website so I have no idea of any other producers on here.
Analog or digital and why?
Analog when it comes to live instruments but I haven't really had a choice to work with analog because of my low budget. I believe as long as you know how to make something sound good it doesn't matter how much money you invest. All you need is the essentials and you're golden.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I will work to the best of my ability until you are happy with your creation.
What do you like most about your job?
I love everything about producing. From the creative side to the finer details. I love it all.
What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
Do you mix and master? - This is a very common one and the answer is yes I do.
Can I get a guitar on this track? - Of course you can!
Can you add vocals? - Most definitely.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
That not everyone can do it. With enough time and effort put in anyone can make a decent sounding track. You have to put in a lot of hard work though.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
I ask what type of vibe they're feeling because if they're on a wave I try my best to ride that wave and give them exactly what they're looking for.
I ask what genre they're looking for and if they're looking for an already made track or want me to tailor make them one.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Make sure you know what you're looking for. If you're looking to be moulded into a style then be honest about it. Same goes if you know who you are and what you want.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
My career path has always been musically orientated. Since I can remember I was singing. I'm a self-taught guitarist since the age of 9 and have been doing this up till now. I started playing the drums when I was 13 and quickly skipped grades as I was above average. When I was nearly 14 I got some recording equipment and i started recording my own covers. I qualified at Grade 6 for drums with rockschool at the age of 14. I got my first bass guitar at the age of 15 and quickly picked it up because of my guitar-playing background. In the early days of 2016 I had gotten extremely into production and would sit in my studio for days making music. in early 2016 I started learning to play the keyboard as well and learnt enough music theory to carry me. I have written hundreds of songs in many different genres and produced hundreds of beats. I recorded, produced and mastered my own album which is now released on the majority of distributors such as: iTunes, Spotify, etc.

I would describe my style as modern, mainstream and unique.

Always save your work.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Rnb, Hip-Hop, Folk, Alternative
What's your strongest skill?
My strongest skills are songwriting and beatmaking.
What do you bring to a song?
I bring realism to my tracks and I'm not afraid to stand for what I believe is right when it comes to a track. I'm very passionate about what I produce and I feel like I have many different skills and techniques I can bring to the studio.
What's your typical work process?
My typical work process varies depending on whether I am working to improve an older track or starting to create a new one. I am constantly digesting various types of music in order to always bring the best I can to the studio. I do not have a set work process as every genre is different and needs to be handled differently.
