Brett the Writer on SoundBetter

What's up, everyone! Songwriting is my JAM... Pun Intended. I've been writing professionally for well over a decade! I have songs cut by Straight No Chaser, by the KYGO Monthly production class (learnmonthly.com), and by independent artists from all over the world. I would love the opportunity to help you bring your visions to life! <3

Hello!

Whether it's CCM, Pop, Country, Rock, Indie, or anything in between... I will bring your style, sound, and ideas to life.

Contact me if -

- You have a song that needs a rewrite because it just isn't hitting the mark

-You have a song idea, or theme, in your head

- You are an artist who needs stronger lyrics and melodies

- You have a tune you hummed recorded on your phone that you would love to see come to fruition

- You want to have a song for yourself or a loved one that you are proud of

Let me bring the music in you to life!

Cheers,
Brett

    Can't say enough about Brett! Absolutely one of the best to work with! From incredible lyrics that bring stories to life to amazing production. A song that I had been trying to write for 6 years needed a new ear. He was that ear! Brett took my story and blew my expectations out of this world! Brett is amazing, helpful and so kind! I am ecstatic to work with him again in the future! Thanks Brett!!!

    Brett is the real deal! I have worked with a lot of people and no one does it like Brett! He takes my ideas and visions, my melodies, the lyrics, and creates something I didn't think would be possible! If you are a pop, soul, or r and b artist-- He is your guy to bring your sound to the next level! I want him for every project I do!

    Brett is the absolute BEST! He takes your vision and music and creates a version of it that you didn't think possible! If you are looking for Pop, Soul, or R & B vibes, Brett is your guy! He is so kind and professional and so great to work with! I can't wait to make more music with him!

    I dropped the ball and forgot to fund the job. Brett was awesome about it, he was patient and flexible. I got way to busy at work and wasn't able to respond/fund the job for a few days. Brett sent me a patient and kind email once a day just checking in. After I funded the job, he was able to start working on the track right away. Very impressed.

Interview with Brett the Writer

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

  2. A: Yes, I have a great network of producers, female vocalists, etc!

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both, silly.

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

  6. A: My heart will be poured into our project <3

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

  8. A: YOU! You are what I like most about my job! You have a dream, a goal, a passion, and I get the privilege of helping you realize it!

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

  10. A: Mainly, I am asked if I have any advice for the song before we begin, and of course I am happy to answer honestly!

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

  12. A: That it's easy! HAHA! Nope! It takes a lot of time helping a client reach their goals. :-)

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

  14. A: Reference and direction, if possible!

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

  16. A: If you know exactly what you want, let me know and we will accomplish it. If you do not know exactly what you want, let me know and we will figure it out!

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

  18. A: Writing tools for sure, microphone, and my general desktop studio stuff.

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

  20. A: I was in a touring band for a number of years when I was younger, we played hundreds of shows each year! This lead to becoming a worship leader at church, and eventually becoming focused on songwriting!

  22. A: Methodical, passionate, intense!

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

  24. A: Shane Mcanally... Amazing!

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

  26. A: Creating the destination of the track , in your mind, before putting pen to paper. If we don't know where we are trying to arrive, the journey can get pretty bumpy... That said, I am a great travel guide, and I will be sure to help you establish the destination if you can't!

  32. A: Amazing sense of arrangement and melody!

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

  34. A: For session vocals- I take the time to listen to my clients reference tracks before diving in. I love taking creative liberty over melodic choices, but I am also happy to follow the demo they provide as well! For Songwriting- this is more involved... I need to spend the time discussing the goals for the track with my client before diving in. After we agree that we are on the same page I will typically create a skeleton for the song so we can review and make changes... After that, it's all or nothing! Time to make a KILLER song!

  35. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  36. A: I've got top of the line Neumann Microphones, a slick Ableton set up, a great pair of studio monitors, and a Focusrite interface!

  38. A: I'm not going to lie, the show SONGLAND is a massive inspiration!

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

  40. A: At this point, my main focus is male vocals or songwriting!
