Doug V on SoundBetter

Songwriter for Feid, Yandel, Thalia, Lyanno, among others. I'll make your ideas come to life with the very best of my lyrics and toplines. Let's get to it!

Latin Grammy-nominated songwriter with 5 years experience in the music biz. I've been involved with music since I was eight, when I began playing the piano.

My focus is on Latin Top 40 sound, specifically —but not limited to— Reggaeton, Pop, R&B and more classic styles like Salsa.

— Spanish Flair, English Skill: I rock at writing and singing in Spanish, and I bring the same magic to English, especially R&B and pop lyrics.

— Melodic Fusion: My toplines blend the soulful vibes of R&B with the rhythmic energy of Reggaeton.

— Lyric Range: Whether it's catchy pop or edgy club tracks, I've got the lyrics locked down.

— Tuned into Today: I'm always in sync with the latest sounds, so you're getting that.

— Delivering Excellence: I'm all about results – your project won't be done until it meets your expectations.

I'm currently based in Medellín working alongside the genre's top figures. My songwriting catalog has productions by multi-platinum producers such as Icon Music, The Rudeboyz, Taiko, Magic, Noize El Nuevo Sonido, BeatDemons, DannyEBTracks, and the list goes on. I've also had the pleasure of working with highly successful artists like Yandel, Thalia, Feid, Manuel Turizo, Zion & Lennox, Piso 21, among others.

In a musical culture that can often feel driven by instant gratification and chart-topping success, Doug has admirably maintained his authenticity and values the care and connection that make musical collaborations truly meaningful.

    Collaborating with the talented Doug V on Sound Better was an absolute joy! His expertise in crafting Latin songs is truly exceptional. From the start, Doug's passion for Latin music shone through, and his deep understanding of the language made our collaboration effortless.

    Doug's ability to capture my vision and translate it into a mesmerizing Latin melody surpassed all expectations. His creativity and attention to detail transformed my ideas into a musical masterpiece that exceeded my wildes

    Doug was easily an amazing person to work with. His voice is clean and of amazing texture. I'm super happy I was able to settle with him. He was first to respond and I did not hesitate to having him sing my background vocals. I CANNOT WAIT to have him assist me with more vocals for my Spanish songs and also to produce something together. Doug is very disciplined and honours his word re delivery time. He's also professional in making sure the singer gets what is expected. Thanks Doug. 👍🏾👍🏾

Interview with Doug V

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

  2. A: Co-writing the track 13 for Feid's album "Ferxxo Vol.1: MOR" (El Cuarto de Ferxxo) has been so far my greatest experience as songwriter. That album was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award for Best Urban Music Album in 2020. Besides, we wrote the song in a Christmas Eve, which make it even more special for me.

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

  4. A: I started studying music as a classical pianist when I was 8. Then I switch to ballad-pop songwriting, and since 5 years ago I started working on reggaeton.

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

  6. A: Give me as much info as posible about the project, always being specific and clear about the needs and expectations.

  7. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  8. A: Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Elton John, Coldplay, Drake, Bruno Mars, The Weeknd, Justin Quiles and Feid.

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

  10. A: Yeah, Clever. Best producer in town https://soundbetter.com/profiles/68330-clever---david-marquez

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

  12. A: My songwriting/singing portfolio

  13. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  14. A: Both

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

  16. A: The talented people I have the pleasure to meet and work with.

  17. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  18. A: "Can you make me a song that sounds like _____ ?" I answer: "I can, but it's better to be unique". You'll get more value if you let the ones creating be themselves.

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

  20. A: "It's just reggaeton/pop lyrics, thats easy!"

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

  22. A: Previous works, goals and needs.

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

  24. A: MIDI key, PC laptop, interface, headphones and a power plant haha

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: A hybrid beetwen rnb and reggaeton.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: Definitely Bruno Mars, he's one of the great talents of this generations and I like the fact that we both start the songs in the piano.

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Make a playlist of songs you like and study them to the core.

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: Reggaeton, latin pop, dancehall / tropical, afrobeat and rnb in spanish, but I also write jazz for a hobby.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: Chords progressions and hooks.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: Musically, not matter the genre, I like to get great chords progressions taking influence from Jazz, RnB, and Soul. For the topline I have a special taste for pop melodies, and hip hop metrics. Lirycally, I focus on having a very defined thematic and good storytelling, also having a word selection that sounds nice to the ear, no matter the listener.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: Due to my academic music education, I like to start finding the harmony circle of the song in the piano. Then I create melody patterns or hooks, then I fill and structure with lyrics. Once the beat is done, I record the song with the performance I can.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I write home with just a laptop and some headphones but I record and have sessions in great studios with full setups.

  41. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  42. A: Songwriting, but I'm also in session because of my toplining and as a pianist

  43. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  44. A: Deliver the best possible song in the shortest possible time, with an unique but up to date style
