WRITING FOR SYNC
Writing music that evokes emotion while following a formula music supervisors crave is my specialty. When I’m not writing for pitches, I’m executive producing sync projects for artists. The idea is to help artists create an additional stream of income while elevating their careers with high-profile ad/TV/film/promo placements.

WRITING FOR ARTISTS
My success with artists revolves around writing a solid top line. I enjoy writing colorful, thoughtful, and clever lyrics that are universally easy to understand. See clients on 'credits' list below.

My workflow is straight-forward, thorough, and always inspired. Turnaround time depends on the breadth of your project. If you're on a tight deadline, contact me for expedited pricing.

Let's get to work.

    Always a pleasure working with Ashley! Building on the original idea and exploring melodies to elevate the work. In addition, love the extra notes on production and vocal performance. It's like a mini artis boot camp every time. Super fun and productive! TY Ash!

    Ashley is truly gifted. Love working with her. I trust her editing eye. I wrote a very wordy song and she helped refine and simplify but still kept it relatable and fun. I feel like she gets me, I couldn't ask for a better collaborator! Thanks Ash!

    We had a country pop tune that needed to be punched up lyrically. We shared our goals, deadlines and direction for the song, she asked some great questions, and then she got to work immediately. She embraced it like it was her own song, and returned something that truly exceeded our expectations. She is talented and a real pro. Look forward to working with her again very soon!

    Ashley is stellar to work with. Not only does she have in-depth industry knowledge, but she is also a master at her craft and has a wealth of valuable ideas. Ashley is very professional and easy to work with—she brings an energy and enthusiasm that is key when creating and collaborating. Not only did Ashley give me key tips to start out as a top liner/sync artist, but she also provided invaluable feedback on songs I have been working on. Work with Ashley—she is amazing!

    I shared demos/drafts of a song I've been struggling with and the next thing you knew, I had a hit song! I have been a fan through the RPDR girls' work. I knew that she was the right lyrical and melodic genius to help me crack code. She took my ideas and elevated them yet, still stayed true to the original concept. Got it done in one draft and even recorded a demo for me! I am definitely looking forward to working with her again! She's an icon, she's a legend and SHE IS THE MOMENT! Luv u Ash!

    Working with Ashley was a wonder. She is such a professional that she was able to help me completely rework and revamp my song in our hour session. She creates a safe space for all involved, and she has such a welcoming and warm presence that writing with her came naturally. Not to mention how talented and hardworking she is. The melodies, the story development, the lyrics, and just the guidance. She has everything required that you would need to take your song to the next level.

    Ash is the queen when it comes to writing hit songs! Finding her is one of the greatest things that has ever happened to me in my whole career producing music because she turns my tracks into smashing songs every time. We've worked on countless songs together, and even though I'm now having a little break from making music as I have all I need for the timebeing, I WILL be back! And I'll be back to work with Ash because she is the best you can get! Ash, I have so much love for you! You rock!

    Ashley is an absolute delight to work with. She helped me take my songs and my general songwriting and arranging skills to a whole 'nother level. Her approach is very personal and I felt so comfortable working with her, which is extremely important when working on your songs, as it's a pretty intimate process. You can tell she really cares. A very genuine person.
    Thank you, Ashley, for teaching me soooo much and also for being such a kind and supportive person!

    I think the amount of jobs and 5-star reviews I have left for Ash says it all. She's my go-to-girl, my number-1-hun, my everything-I-ever-wanted-in-a-songwriter songwriter! Every time, she turns my track into a hit. I can't express enough how kind, incredible and truly special she is. Ash, you're one in a million!

Interview with Ashley Levy

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: 9 times out of 10 I'm working out of a boutique recording studio in Los Angeles that I share with my production team. I work in ProTools and Melodyne on a Raven console. The outboard gear is a Neve 1064, UA LA-2A, and a U-47 mic inside of an air-tight isobooth. I have a mobile base for when I'm on the move consisting of an Apogee Duet, Slate VMS L1 mic, and an Aston halo reflection filter.

  3. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  4. A: Always be crystal clear about what you want. Providing references is key! We are music wizards, not mind readers.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Yes! If I think they fit the needs of a project, I'm happy to refer them.

  7. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  8. A: My career started in Music Therapy, working with autistic children in New York City's most low income special needs schools. I was always co-writing with local music artists, too. While I was in grad school, I was asked to write for some high-profile artists in Los Angeles. Great opportunities kept presenting themselves on the West coast, and I eventually pressed pause on the Music Therapy track and took a chance on myself as a professional songwriter. Here we are 10 years later, and I'm still very much in love with music.

  9. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  10. A: Assuming I have some solar power panels -- MacBook pro, Apogee Duet, Fender Standard Strat, U-47, Aston Halo Reflection Filter.

  11. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  12. A: Recently I wrote a children's album for RuPaul's Drag Race superstar Nina West. She wanted an album geared towards modern families in the LGBTQ+ community, which was uncharted territory in the children's music world. It was a unique challenge that was received with so much love and support, and I'm so proud to have been a part of it.

  13. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  14. A: Day-to-day I am working the sync world, but I always make time for artists I connect with and believe in.

  15. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  16. A: Analog will always sound warmer and more alive, but digital is easier on the wallet. Waves has a collection of bundles that imitate analog tape beautifully and I use them on pretty much everything.

  17. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  18. A: It feels like I get to be in a different band every day.

  19. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  20. A: It might look like I'm slacking off on my phone in a writing session, but I swear I'm in a shared note working on lyrics!!

  21. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  22. A: What is the deadline? Do you have any sound/vibe references for your project? What do you want to feel from the vocal performance?
