I don't believe in cutting corners Im here to make magic. Trusted by one of the biggest producers around - Tommee Proffitt for session guitar work and editing. Ive produced songs on ABC's Greys anataomy and other ABC promotions. I love all types making music but my unique gifting probably best seen in the pop, indie pop, and alternative world.
I started out with Christian music producing and working for several Christian artists. After cutting my teeth in some of the biggest churches in the US I diverted energy to diving into recording and producing guitars, keys, bass, and programming drums for all types of projects. I focused mainly on pop, indie pop, singer songwriter, and alternative vibes. I am proficient at vocals, keys, guitars, bass, and programming. I work in Ableton, Pro Tools, and Logic. I have been playing music for most of my life, I started seriously writing songs, producing and arranging about 5 years ago.
I can offer full production of song from 0 to being able to release ready. I can cut guitars, keys, bass, or vocals for your song, I have great gear so if you are in Nashville I can also offer recording as well.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
