James Paolano on SoundBetter

I specialize in music production and bass guitar. I have participated in many projects as a producer or writer as well as written to custom brief to picture. For performance credits I have opened on bass for acts such as Ripe, Smash Mouth, Better Than Ezra, Mount Joy, as well as shared the stage with legendary hip hop artist Kurtis Blow and Voice C

I have a large background in music to bring to the table. I grew up playing jazz (and classical) extensively and continued my study of music by obtaining a Contemporary Writing & Production Degree at Berklee College of Music.
I have much experience in the realm of popular music and rock music. This experience involves demo prep for submission to major labels as well as having performed and recorded with The Voice contestant Delaney Silvernell (Times Union Arena). I have experience mixing and producing live recordings as well as music recorded in a studio setting. I also am proficient in writing scores and am available to write vocal parts as well as instrumental parts to your demos or tracks.

    James worked on my first single release "Loving and Losing" and was such an amazing person to work with. He is highly motivated and has an amazing ear. James's skill with not only production, but instrumentation and writing as well, is such an asset to any project. James has assisted me in numerous projects since and always enhances the art from start to finish.

    James was very proficient and excited to produce my song! I was new to songwriting and James was very thoughtful while bringing my song to life. Highly recommend him as a producer and bass player. He is very unique, works hard, and gets the job done.
