Will Shishmanian on SoundBetter

Singer/songwriter, musical theater composer/lyricist, and multi-instrumentalist who's been independently producing and collaborating on songs in an array of genres for over a decade.

My first writing and recording experiences were in the folk and singer/songwriter genres, writing and self-producing several of my own albums starting in my teens. I studied classical composition and graduated with a bachelor's in music from Ithaca College, where I began composing for musical theater and film scoring. My first musical "Addy & Dahlia: A Fairytale Musical", which I composed music and lyrics for, which premiered in NYC in 2019, and I was one of the composers for the off-Broadway musical "Camp Morning Wood" which premiered at Playwrights Horizons in 2019. I have recorded and co-produced for artists in the pop, rock, R&B, and singer/songwriter genres.

- Songwriting: I can set your lyrics to music in any of the styles I specialize in, or write lyrics/help you hone your lyrics for songs you're currently working on. Publishing splits to be negotiated.
- Instrumental/vocal recording: I have a professional quality home studio to record remotely for other artists projects. Work for hire.
- YouTube cover recording: If you're a singer needing a backing track for a cover video, I can record anything from a solo acoustic guitar track, to a full band for you to sing to. Work for hire.
- Podcast/TV/Film Themes and scores: I compose themes and scores for various projects. Work for hire, contact for pricing.
