The services I provide include songwriting and male vocalist demos. Versatility in writing is key, and I can write R&B, country, contemporary, pop, hip-hop hooks, etc. I can help you strengthen your verses, bring depth to your harmonies and melodies, and make your chorus and hooks pop that much more.

Interview with PennDusko
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually write music to a produced instrumental, or to an acoustic arrangement. I love writing R&B, country and contemporary. Depending on the co-writer, there are plenty of times we'll start writing to a loop or a guitar melody.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Versatility. Being a songwriter in this day and age means you need to be a multi-genre writer. I have a comfort zone, but I'm also confident in my ability to write to any client's specific needs.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Once I receive a track/instrumental, I take some time to vibe with it. Music gives a feeling, and in order to communicate that feeling effectively via lyric, you have to feel what the track is telling you to write. It's good if a lyric or melody sound good, but it's better with it feels good. I try my best to make music that feels good.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I utilize a MacBook Pro with Logic, and I have access to Ableton. I have weekly access to studios and writing rooms, and I do a lot of writing and recording at home as well.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: John Mayer, James Fauntleroy and Kirk Franklin are my favorite songwriters. They know how to effectively convey a feeling and emotion in one quality lyric, and every lyric has a purpose. Quincy Jones is one of my favorite producers, because his versatility is what made him different. I believe lyrical versatility as a writer is what sets me apart as well.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I do mostly topline writing, which is basically writing on top of a beat that a client brings to me. Outside of the lyrics, I also create the harmonies and melodies around the vocal, and provide feedback on how to make the track and song itself better. However, I often create songs from scratch, with just a guitar, which is common here in Nashville.
