**ONLY TAKING PIANO/KEYS projects at the moment* Professional singer, songwriter, and musician since the age of 9. Take some time to listen to my demos here (with headphones).
Like many of my favorite artists, I earned my chops in church (gospel) where you have to connect with the lyrics of the song and then perform it in a way that truly delivers the message. Although I’ve branched out to other genres my work is rooted in the belief that I must bring soul to everything I touch. I’m very comfortable with r&b/gospel/hip hop/jazz/rock/pop keys.
Go ahead and contact me and we'll discuss your project! I look forward to working with you

Interview with MADE
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Whatever works for the job.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'm a perfectionist on all of my projects and I'll sing/write/play for you in the exact way I would do for my personal projects.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to do what I love and I get to work with people who are passionate about making their creations come to life.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is the goal for this project and what is the target audience/market? Do you have a rough mix or scratch recording? How much creative input would you like from me? What is the time frame for completion of the project?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be open to the process. Things are gonna be just fine.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Can you take a Bosendorfer to a desert island? Who would tune it? So many questions! A recorder and lots of batteries. Does a songwriter need much else?
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I like working with anyone who takes their craft seriously and has a professional work ethic.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Keep it real and let the magic happen. Oh, and don't over-demo the song(s)...get the best take possible and move on.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Hands down it has to be bringing emotion and melody. At the very heart of songwriting is the ability to connect the right lyrics with the right melody. Without that you're not really succeeding.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most commonly I'm called on to create a memorable melody line or to write based on a predetermined concept. Additionally I'll typically be asked to record a demo/scratch recording for reference.
