Hey there! My name is Melaku, and I am a super focused and effective singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. I run Mowbray Studio in Santa Cruz where I have demoed and recorded songs with and for many many artists and producers. If you are looking for vocals, songwriting, or production, I look forward to working with you!
Here is a breakdown of what I do:
1) Singing: I have been singing my entire life, and have studied voice at CSSSA, Columbia University, and The Vocal Workout School in New York. I am able to sing in many genres: Pop, R&B, Soul, EDM, Rock, Singer-Songwriter. I am accurate and highly aware of the details of recording, and consistently record and engineer myself.
2) Songwriting: I have written songs for myself forever, and have written songs for other artists and with producers since 2011. I have written for clients at my own studio in Santa Cruz, CA, as well as for many artists that you have heard of on major labels. I have also been in industry writing camps. I am very fast and highly creative with songwriting, and am very good at figuring out structure fast.
3) Production: I have produced songs for myself and clients for many years. My production style tends to lean more organic, with real instruments like guitar, bass, drums, strings, horns, etc. I'm not an EDM or Electronic producer, although I do use a lot of those same synths. I am also good at mixing/mastering. Most clients I have come to me for a one-stop shop.
