composing music for the stories that matter
2016 was a great year and below are 5 tracks (out of 200 in 2016) that I really enjoyed making. Cheers to 2017.
After spending months in Brazil, and crafting 10 songs in 5 days, I am pleased to say almost all of these tracks were used during the 2016 Rio Olympics and had some success during the Today! Show. Never thought I'd see Al Roker dancing around to one of my tracks! Here are a collection of all my World tracks:
With the popularity of Stranger Things, I dug deep and pulled out these fantastic synth tracks that to me express so much more than bits and saw waves, instead it screams being a teenager, going on an adventure in a dark forest, and pushing on.
Below are a collection of Future Bass / Trap / Urban Pop (and even Latin Trap) songs. These songs have been pitched for various commercials but all hold a dirty and gritty aggression to them that I love and think we all can relate to when we are motivated and grinding.
There is nothing I love more in this world than stringed instruments. Strings truly tug at my heart strings, and that is one of the reasons why I love working with them.
It was a pleasure composing the music for this powerful documentary about three young refugees looking to find their place in this world. Beautiful stories and beautiful cinematography by 4n Pictures
One of my passions is helping other producers finish more music faster. I fell into the trap that many producers and songwriters fall into, which is a hard drive full of 8 bar loops or some scribbles on a sheet of paper and no finished songs to show for it.
I would think about music, read about music, watch tutorials on music, anything EXCEPT actually making and finishing music. The shame, the guilt, and the fear of starting a new project ate me alive. It made me blame my girlfriend, my job, my parents, my gear, and any other reason imaginable, as to why I wasn't finishing music.
I pulled myself out of this deep frustration and I went from barely finishing one track a year, to ten songs a week.
I am now dedicated to helping others pull themselves out as well and finish more music faster.
Through weekly or bi-weekly calls, I give the personal support and accountability to help producers exceed their own expectations and fulfill their goals.
