Marcello Laksono on SoundBetter

Asian songwriter/producer specializing in indie/bedroom rock, pop and experimental genres. Primary artist in Cellosux, a project currently finishing my debut album. I like working with artists who aim to break boundaries and push the envolope further than they can ever.

Hi my name's Marcello

If you're looking for someone who is both eloquent and artistic in vision, you'll probably like working with me. I've worked with 88rising, wrote and produced for the indie scene in Indonesia and currently in progress with finishing up my debut album Down in The Dumps. I like to take a genre-less approach with writing music, I like getting to know the artist to have a good grasp on their background and what they stand for and I try write and produce for the song and not for my ego.

Most of my clients are budding musicians who I believe are doing it for the art form and I hope that you can see that I pour in 110% my work because quite frankly, I love doing this.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
