I'm a songwriter and producer from Los Angeles, CA. Open to work on some tracks in my free time. Message me for availability and send me your music.
I can usually find some time to write lyrics, melodies, and chord structures. I'm not taking on a ton of new production clients at the moment but I'm always open to listen to some demos to see if it would interest me!

This guy is the real deal. He steps into the time or where everything took place, and writes it down on paper in ways that makes feel like you're back there in that moment. He is a genuine dude, and just easy to work with. Thanks J!
Jack and Meg (on this instance) have been a joy to work with. I asked them to cover a track and bring it to life, they have indeed!! Great results, quality, creative and understand that making a piece of art takes chipping away at! Thanks, I hope we do more.
Best person to work with on this site. Instant chemistry and was willing to give opinions not just robot work! Already planning more work .
Working with Jack & Meg is a DREAM. These two have the best energy. Whether you’re needing songwriting with dope melodies and lyrics, or production, they’re the team for you! Their open, creative minds make writing songs so fun, comfortable and magical. They are wonderful at bouncing ideas back and forth, and won’t settle until the finished product is something you’re in love with. They’ve brought my concepts, lyrics, and melodic ideas to life with each song we’ve worked on. I plan to work with Jack & Meg for a very long time! Create with them, you’ll definitely be thanking yourself.
