4 ReviewsEndorse PennDusko
It was awesome working with PennDusko, not only a great voice on him but also very easy to work with and follows instructions well, plus gave his own flavor to the song! Definitely would recommend 10/10
When I heard this guy's songwriting ability and experienced the approach to his craft, I was absolutely amazed! Indeed, his wit is translated to lyric as he draws the listener into his story. Creating that kind of experience is an awesome skill to have in the songwriting world. It's of great benefit to get with this guy while he's as accessible as he is. His talent will surely launch him into the stratosphere not long from now. Don't sleep!
A prolific songwriter who communicates his visions and ideas for songs better than most industry songwriters I've worked with. My only regret is that I can't pay his actual worth as a songwriter. Highly recommended.
Award-winning music producer.
PennDusko is one of my favorite writers to work with. His lyrics are deep and witty to match his very good melody lines. I would highly recommend writing with this guy.
Interview with PennDusko
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.
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: 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'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: 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 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.
