“There are levels to a sound meter just like there are levels to producing, your music deserves to be at its peak level” - Jay P Does It
I am a Music Producer & Songwriter located in LA. I've been placing songs as of recent on both my production & songwriting abilities on multiple genres of music. I work mainly on Pop, R & B & Hip Hop with artists like J.L.O, John Legend, D Smoke, Dribble2much & new acts signed to all major labors like Republic, Sony etc. I also got songs with Latin Artist such as Anitta, Leslie Shaw, Leli & more.
When it comes to my production I am very hands on, I am not a beat maker in the sense of making beats & sending them out, I prefer to get in the studio with the artist or writer and vibe out & create on the spot when its available. While Covid has made it difficult to get in my studio with artist & songwriters Ive been having a lot of success with FaceTime & zoom sessions with Artists & Writers as we go through the process of creating. All of the songs I work on I think melody first & I am a perfectionist in finding the very best melody.
I have a professional recording studio where I have all my analog synths, high end monitors for referencing & mixing, a Sony c800 microphone for recording detailed vocals that is available 24/7 or 24/8 as I like to call it. I like to have all my clients/friends work together & merge the 2 in perfect harmony, I mean isn't that why we are doing music to begin with.
