  1. Review by Thomas D.

    Awesome writer and performer, both in talent and professionalism !

  2. Review by Cory H.

    Merty really helped out with creating a story for my song. I told him what it would be about and the lyrics sounded amazing. He definitely knows how to write lyrics and catch a good flow for a song. I’d highly recommend you to work with him if needing lyrics.

  3. Review by Vivek A.

    Merty is an excellent lyricist - I worked him with a new song, and he spent the time to get to know me as an artist to better understand my goals; since we are both full-time musicians, we both take the creation process very seriously with the respect it deserves. He was always responsive, worked very well remotely, and iterated well so we could get to lyrics that could really make an impact on the listener. I plan on working with him again and would recommend him enthusiastically.

    Creating new fire every time. Merty Shango always coming through with the energy to take your project to the next level.

  18. Review by Ally V.

    Merty Shango, delivered everything I asked for and more. He's professional and delivered the song within a fast turnaround, at a great price. I liked how he immersed himself in the beat because not everyone can write to non-trap gritty beats. I will definitely return for more songs.
