MATEI on SoundBetter

My main goal is to co-create with as many artists as possible - I genuinely enjoy turning ideas into art. Having started my own music journey not too long ago, I took all the time before to develop my skills and nurture my talents.

My first artistic love was painting - I was always a very visual person and a lover of aesthetic in every form. I transitioned to songwriting from poetry and kept the same approach to writing as painting - whether it's lighthearted and fun or something that requires digging a bit deeper to get the desired outcome (or lyric in this context!)

Writing and singing are my fortes when it comes to making music. I enjoy writing 'simple', catchy pop lyrics just as much as poetic, emotional ones and everything in between. My love of storytelling makes it easy to understand and create the perfect song structure. I was trained in classical singing for 3 years before doing a year and a half of musical theatre training and developing and strengthening vocal technique. I'm constantly working on my vocals, writing and music making skills. It still excites me to learn new things and enjoy the journey!

My song 'Without You' was a finalist in UKSC (UK Songwriting Contest - Pop Category) an received a five star rating! I've also written songs for sync that have been picked up by agencies in Europe such as BAM Music.

Looking forward to hearing about your project and how I can help :) Get in touch!

    Matei is a great guy to work with. Super easy, quick and understandable on what I want. Just a few changes he does make the whole work amazing and I love it. Would totally recommend.❤️❤️❤️

  4. Review by Ben Mclusky

    Matei wrote and recorded a top line vocal. The top line melody was just what the track needed. Matei was fast, responsive, happy to work on revisions and generally easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him.

    Mat is amazing. If I could I would give him 6 ⭐️.
    He’s fast and when I showed him some of my “unfinished work” and told him what I wanted he got straight to the point. I love his work and working with him❤️❤️❤️

    In our collaboration, Matej did a great job as a lyricist, approaching the project with sensibility considering the requirements we needed. He really went all-in to understand what the project is about, would definitely love to collaborate again

    I needed lyrics for a track within 48h and I was impressed with Matei's skills - not just the songwriting, but communication and efficiency! It was a small project but I'm looking forward to working with him again in the future. 5 stars.

    Matej wrote the lyrics for one of my songs. He was extremely sweet and cooperative, he took into consideration my opinion and any suggestions I had, and the final product was just what I was looking for. Very talented and creative, would love to work with him again!

    Matej did a topline for my project and he captured my idea really well. I felt like he immediately understood what I needed from him and communicating with him was really easy from the beginning. I enjoyed working with Matej and hope to have a chance to collaborate again!

Interview with MATEI

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

  2. A: I will deliver on time and work hard to achieve a result that you're excited by!

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

  4. A: Tell me as much as you can about your vision, but if you can't go into detail I will happily help you create something genuine.

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

  6. A: I've been writing for 6 years, singing for 9. Songwriting came from writing poetry and singing was my first love after I heard Mariah's iconic riffs and runs.

  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: I'd say my style is heavily influenced by visuals and storytelling.

  9. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  10. A: Turning emotions, feelings and ideas into lyrical stories!

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

  12. A: Emotion and value :)

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

  14. A: Depends on the project, but usually I always think of the meaning of the song first and what the artist is trying to achieve with it. I love creating melodies so I would start there and write after, although in moments of inspiration I always write down a phrase, word or lyric that's been in my head and that I think I could use at some point. I prefer writing with a pen and paper, that way I learn by keeping all the 'mistakes' and crossed out lyrics. Melodies usually come naturally and lyrics come easily if the idea and concept is set, so it generally doesn't take me more than a few days for songwriting!

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

  16. A: I'm greatly inspired by artists who have a full skillset - not only are they amazing performers and singers, but songwriters, producers and engineers as well and are heavily involved in all aspects of their art.

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

  18. A: Songwriting as well as co-production and vocal arranging.
