Songwriter / Drum Programmer

Alex on SoundBetter

Hi, I'm Alex, I'm writing original, authentic songs adapting to your personality and sensibility. I've been writing songs for about 15 years. My favorite songwriters are John Lennon, Thom Yorke, Frank Ocean, Stevie Wonder, James Blake, .. Hi can also do top lines or program drums for your songs.

I can write melodies as well as lyrics for you. If you already have a beat or instrumental, I can also propose you some top lines and hooks.
You can listen to my solo project here (everything is recorded and produced by me) :

In order for the song to be meaningful for you, I like to know you a bit better and adapt to how you feel and what you want to talk about, so this can be a really personalized process. Also I won't accept your request if I feel that our styles cannot match.

So here is what I can do :
-Write a song from scratch (Melody+Chord Progression+Lyrics)
-Develop a song from an already existing idea that you have
-Build melodies/top lines on top of an instrumental
-Write lyrics for your already existing melodies

We'll agree on a direction before I start, and I can give you 2/3 propositions so you can have the choice.
The price and publishing rights splits will depend on each project.

If you need some Drum Programming, i can provide you with really well crafted beats (I programmed all the drums in my songs). So you can either ask me to fit a certain rythm or an instrumental, or start for scratch, and I'll send you the drum pattern you need. I am very careful about the sound of each element and how it gets into the mix.

I'd be glad to help you achieve your vision.
You can contact me for more information.
