Im a 3x platinum songwriter who has created works for- Chris Brown, Marvels "Ant Man", August Alsina, 50cents "Power" series, How To Get Away With Murder, Armon and Trey, Dj Havanna Brow, Rich The Kid, Fox's Empire, and many more clients. I can write for a WIDE range of genres rather it be topline or melody. I look forward to working with you next.
When approaching a song, and upon receiving the track, the first thing I always ask my clients is "what emotion or message are they trying to portrait in this song"? Its always important to know what you're trying to say. But for me (as the writer) it also helps dictate what type of melodies and cadences that I will implement as a writer. Particular melodies help further express a message beyond words. As a songwriter one of my strong suits is being able to convey a given message or emotion in a clever way but also make it digestible so the average listener can comprehend and fully understand what is being said. Along with the message it's important that it is delivered in a way that makes people want to sing it. Melody choice is a strong suit of mine as well. When listeners think back on a song, the melody is always the first thing that comes to mind, so having a strong melody is very key when putting together a song. Lastly, my ability to deliver a finished product in a timely fashion is second to none. Majority of my jobs have a 24hr turn around. Time is very important especially from my experiences in the industry, rather that be working on albums, syncs for television shows, or soundtracks for films. If you are looking for high quality records with a fast delivery time, Im definitely your guy. I look forward to working together soon.

DiALO gave me the smoke, fire, and heat! I absolutely love his way of taking a track and bringing it to life. I was blown away after listening. We are going to do much more together.
Another amazing track by DiAlo. Doesn't matter what tempo or style i throw at him, he has such an incredible ability to take in the music and put something fitting, original, modern and memorable with great hooks. Can't wait to work with him again.
DiAlo again came up with and amazing song. His vision, interpretation and feel for any genre shines in whatever he does. Whatever i throw at him he comes up with something modern, fresh, relatable and with variety and passion. Couldn't ask for more from a songwriter and all this in a few hours. It's an honour to work with him
Once again DiAlo did a phenomenal job. I can't say enough about the quality, speed and talent that he has as a songwriter. I am looking forward to see what he comes up with next time. 10 stars
Awesome work! He did it really fast and precise. We will definitely love to work again! The singer EVA is more than happy!
DiAlo was a pleasure to work with and an absolute pro. I sent him a track and what he was able to come up with in a day just blew me away. His timing vision and melody was spot on and turned this track into something wonderful. He really got into the vibe and totally related to the story. To say i am overjoyed with the result is an understatement. Can't wait to send him another track.
If you are lucky enough to work with Dialo then you know that mans pen is touched by God himself. Working with Dialo has elevated our music tremendously. I whole heatedly believe nobody can write like him from his content to his cadences etc .... I’m blessed to have met him and honored to have been able to Colab musically with him. If you want a hit make sure you tap in with the bro #NoCap
Incredibly talented, always creates and conducts business in a fast timely manner. Love the way he's able to understand what you want to portray in a song and depict it within the times of pop culture to produce something catchy, good quality, and unique.

Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Im working on various artist projects, as well as companies like FOX, STARZ, and HBO for tv syncs.

Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is that the songwriting aspect is easy. Yes anyone CAN write a song, but not everyone is a SONGWRITER. Alot of the attention goes to the artist and producers (no disrespect to them), but it is the melody and lyrics that get stuck in everyones heads.

A: I always want to know what type of feelings, situations, and emotions are they currently feeling.

A: Just be ready to work. Always address individuals on their energy and not their resume.

A: I would take my Mac, headphones, mic, interface, and (I know its not gear but just as vital) SAGE.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Id describe my style as a fresh, original, yet modern and familiar.

A: Usually the client sends me over a record, and a brief (if any) explanation of what they would like the record to be about or feel like.

A: I not only have a in home studio, I also have multiple studios I work out of as I travel.
