My name is Music by Calm and I am a songwriter from St. Louis, MO!! I love the process of listening to an artist vision and creating a song out of it. When I create a song for an artist I become the artist as a person to fully capture every emotion in the song. I am 110% confident in my ability to create music for ANY GENRE!!!
I compare the amazing process of writing a song to the art of building a car. There are essential pieces that must be present for the vehicle to function but the creativity is what will ultimately determine the value and appeal of the song. As a song writer, my primary goal is to get as much information and background from the artist as possible so I can fully capture the various emotions of the song. My strength is having the ability to create abstract melodies and flows within the structure of a song. My goal when writing a song is to push the artist to their full potential to create the best song possible. try me out and i guarantee you will be satisfied. LETS WORK!!!!!
