James Hill (Projectwhatever) on SoundBetter

For four years I was the pianist/keyboardist with the band Badbadnotgood. Now I run a music studio in Toronto where I compose and produce music across multiple genres. I have a wide and unique set of skills surrounding composition, production and performing that can help take your project to the next level. Shoot me a message anytime!

My name is James, and I work under the moniker Projectwhatever. I began my musical journey studying piano and contemporary music at Humber College in Toronto and now I own a small studio where I produce, compose, record, mix and master. After a brief stint teaching music at the Global Music Institute in India, I went on to work with Badbadnotgood as painist/keyboardist for four years—with whom I performed with many artists including Daniel Caesar, Charlotte Day Wilson, Jonah Yano, Little Simz, Denzel Curry among others. I spent years on the road performing at big venues and festivals, but I also spent a lot of time in the studio which is where I discovered my love for recording and production.

How it works:

I offer multiple services to help you with your musical project, including: Songwriting, structuring, composing the harmonic and melodic content of your music; Mixing, balancing and emphasizing important elements of your music so it's enjoyable to listen to; And mastering, in order to put the final touches on your music by bringing it up to modern music standards so that it can stand next to your favourite artists' tracks. Let me help you elevate your project by bringing a set of fresh ears, creative ideas and a unique and diverse skill set developed over 10 years of experience in the field. I specialize in Pop, Jazz, Experimental and Electronic music.
