I specialize in writing radio-ready songs and remain attuned to the latest musical trends. As a dedicated artist with a gift for crafting strong melodies, I believe a truly impactful song has the ability to evoke new emotions and compel listeners to hit the replay button over and over.

I make our workflow as efficient as possible. After you send an instrumental:

- I'll record a demo of a topline and send
- Lyric added when topline approved
- Will track final with Leads, BGV’s, Adlibs & Doubles (Mixed & Dry stems sent when finished)

Gear highlights:
Neumann u87, Neve 1073SPX Preamp, Apollo Thunderbolt, Mojave MA 201-fet, Nectar 3, Ozone, Waves full bundle, Dove Pro acoustic guitar, Fender Strat; most industry standard plug-ins

I'd love to collaborate with you and elevate your music to new heights. Let's take your sound to the next level!

    I had the pleasure of collaborating with Mariami on a recent music production, and I couldn't be more impressed. Her vocals were absolutely sublime, blending seamlessly with the track and elevating the entire piece. Mariami's lyrical talents are equally remarkable; she wrote lyrics that fit the song perfectly, capturing its essence effortlessly. Additionally, her professionalism shone through in her quick responses and efficient work pace. I highly recommend Mariami for any project!

    This was my second time working with Mari on a song, this time she provided me with feedback on my melody and lyrics but also assisted with helping me flesh out the chorus. Mari's expertise is always amazing and takes something from meh to GREAT! She has a knack for great lyrics and melodies that make sense! I can't wait to work with her on the next project!

    This was my first time working with Mari and she did not disappoint! Her creativity opened a door I didn't even know could exist. She was quick to send over her initial ideas and asked if I liked the direction through each step of the process. She was open to my very minor revision input and blew me away completely. She nailed it and I can't wait to work with her again. Thank you so much, Mari!

Interview with Mariami

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

  2. A: I pursued music at Berklee College of Music. At 23, I moved to New York City to launch my career. By 27, I secured my first development deal with an executive from Interscope Records, gaining invaluable insights into the path to becoming a successful full-time artist. At 31, I took the entrepreneurial leap, establishing my own production company. This move allowed me to craft chart-topping hits for artists worldwide, solidifying my presence in the industry. At the age of 36, I further expanded my musical endeavors by founding my own publishing company. Currently, I am pursuing a Master's degree in Music Business at NYU, deepening my understanding of the industry and honing my expertise.

  3. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  4. A: If I had the opportunity, I would choose to collaborate with Kendrick Lamar. His artistry continually astounds me; he consistently defies expectations, and develops new narrative styles that trail blaze a new path forward. The precision with which he composes his lyrics and delivers them consistently raises the artistic bar.

  5. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  6. A: Step aside from your own limiting inner voice. Allow your instincts to be your compass and silence your inner monologue. Embrace all aspects of the creative process without reservation.

  8. A: Pop, Soul, R&B, EDM, Dance, Acoustic, House, Rock

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

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: What story are you trying to tell? How do you want your audience to feel? What references or artists are you aiming to sound like?

  19. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  20. A: Creativity. I find things where things don't exist.

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

  22. A: Toplining, Lyric Writing, Vocal Performance, Recording, Mix & Song Arrangement

  23. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
