10 year singer-songwriter with 5 albums released. I love creating and bringing original works to life, focusing on lyrical depth and dynamic vocals.
I can provide you an array of services particularly dealing with songwriting, vocal production and arrangement, and vocal comping. Lyrics and toplining are my specialty. I can attach thematic, honest, and/or catchy lyrics to already made melodies. I can create pop hooks and intriguing melodies for your lyrics. Or I can do both and add to the world of your production. I can also take vocal ideas and comp them for an alternate take of your own melodies.
