Looking for sounds in hidden places.
I'm a hard working and quirky, 21 year old songwriter and producer. I'm not looking for clients, I'm looking for people to make music with. I started writing songs at the age of 10 (and poetry slightly later) and eventually started to learn about production and I can work in Pro Tools, Ableton Live and FL Studio but I can still work with people using other DAWs as long as they send me the necessary audio files.
Your music means a lot to you and I'm here to help you turn it into something great.
Send a message, we can talk, ask as many questions as you want to and we'll see if we're on the same page.

Interview with Nigel Rome
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Every book I've read, every tutorial that I've watched and most importantly, that musical moment that I find inside myself and inside whoever I'm working with.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Split the mid/side of your tracks and automate the volumes or just use a stereo imager. You are so so welcome.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My first beat, it was awful but it was mine and it was the moment that gave birth to all the other moments.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm gonna start a YouTube channel, tips for songwriters, producers, musicians, and anyone else.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Me... I'm just gonna say that like I'm kidding and not have a follow-up answer, I have no shame.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both, you realise that instead of arguing about which to use, you could actually just make music?
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I have more free revisions then anyone I've seen on this site, I want to give you everything that I have because I know that your music is the world to you and I can relate.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Music all day! I'm not good at other of things.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Them: Can you make this sound? Me: Done!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I have a good answer to that question (I don't)... I guess that I don't like people, I love people, it just has to be someone you can relate to.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Can you do this or that? You'd be surprised, I don't specialise in dubstep for example, but I could.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don't worry about if you're wasting my time, ask me a hundred questions and even if you don't work with me, I'm still happy because I got to talk about music. I don't know about the other people on here.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, headphones, audio interface and mic. Just those four, if you can't work with the least, you'll never know how to do the most.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I taught myself, I started writing at 10, learnt more and more from every source possible.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I have no style, I'm not a cool kid. But musically I push boundaries.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Adele... Are you really going to ask why?
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I'm flexible but Alternative, Pop, R 'n' B/Soul mostly.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Finding great ideas that some people can't see.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: As soon as it's a routine, it feels less artistic so I chase inspirational moments in the music, one leads to another and before you know it, we've made art.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It's effective, there are countless million-dollar record deal albums being made in home studios (seriously, just Google it) so I'm not after things that I don't need right now. I have a laptop, some great headphones and monitors, a mic, an interface, a MIDI controller and an assortment of amazing plugins.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Adele, The Weeknd, James Brown, Arethra Franklin, Ariana Grande, Michael Jackson, Lorde, Beyonce, Major Lazer, CHVRCHES... We'll be here all day if you let me go on.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: A lot of people will ask either for production or songwriting, it's hardly ever both at the same time.
