It has been a true pleasure collaborating with Monk/Pichya!
Communication was great and I think that even if we haven't met, she really felt what I was looking for and went beyond that and elevated my melody line. Looking forward to working on more songs together!
I worked with her on two tracks together.
And it's turned into some really cool tracks. :)
I delivered only the mood and concept of the song to her without much detail.
and I want to let you know by writing this review that she surprised me twice. :)
You'll enjoy the whole editing process after receiving the vocal track from her.
It was great working with g3arboi. A talented producer and beatmaker. She helped me a lot with my song and helped get me started on my musical journey.

I had a great time collaborating w/ Pichya. Nice lilting songs, wide open tracks to play around w/ pads, rhythms & simplemelidies. Would love to work together again!
g3arboi is the best collaborator I have worked with by far. Her vocal tone and sensibilities are amazing. Her understanding of structure and unique style and broad music taste influence every project she works on. She is great at creating ambient soundscapes and innovative beats but also at adding lyrics and catchy melodies to instrumental tracks. She is chill, organized, understands all genres and is really fun to work with.
