F L O W E R Z is a dark cinematic album I co-wrote and produced with a variety of talented female artists (Maggie Szabo, Annabel Lee, Alix Isom, Syd Duran, Kim Reader). It blends hard hitting beats and synths, with lush and sometimes distorted strings. Carrying the songs are powerful, gritty and airy female vocals. It is the dark side counterpart of a previous album I produced under the same name.
Syd Duran is a songwriter, recording artist and front-woman of LA rock band Valora. Signed to Hollywood Records in 2007 as a solo artist, Syd landed her first tour opening up for the Jonas Brothers.
She began her songwriting career co-writing with the industry’s top songwriters and producers including The Matrix (Britney Spears, Shakira, Avril Lavigne), Kara Dioguardi (Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Jason Derulo), Rock Mafia (Eminem, Zedd, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Mariah Carey, Justin Bieber) and many more.
Syd and I have had a lot of success with the song “Dust & Bone.” It’s been featured in the FIFA Womens World Cup 2019 promo, American Gods Season 2 promo, Total Bellas, and more. We’re currently in the midst of finishing up her new album. Coming soon!
Vibes Variety is an EP I produced for artist Mario Sterling. Mario is a Los Angeles singer-songwriter who blends Urban/R&B, Hip-Hop, Reggaeton and EDM. Having worked with Grammy winning producer Brook D’Leau (Miguel, The Roots, Mariah Carey) as well as opening for acts such as P. Diddy, Machine Gun Kelly, YG, Bow Wow, Kid Ink, Warren G and many others, Mario continues to prove that he is a force to be reckoned within the underground Los Angeles music scene.
MANHATTN is an EP that came together from opposite ends of the country. Co-written and co-produced with the talented Minnesota based songwriter/producer Drew Lerdal. We finished this EP through email without ever being in the same room. The songs are indie rock inspired with an anthemic, arena sound. Guitars blend with hard hitting acoustic and sampled drums. Catchy male vocals and earworm melodies will get stuck in your head. “Never Gonna Give Up” was featured in Buick Mexico’s 2019 ad campaign, and you can catch the other songs in a variety of TV shows including Ravens Home, General Hospital, MTV’s Catfish, Seista Key and more!
“Out My Way” is a song from a project I produced for LA based artist Katrina Stuart. Katrina grew up in Toronto and made the move to LA to pursue her music career. Now with a major social media following and newly signed record deal she plans on releasing an album later this year.
When I created the EP MODERN EYE I wanted to combine authentic songwriting with a new modern sound. Indie drums and synths combine with fun guitars and powerful vocals. “Brand New Start” was featured in Life Sentence and was the theme for the LPGA Tour and CBS Sports Spectacular 2016. Other songs off the EP have been in a multitude of spots and tv shows including Dunkin Donuts, Target, Dude Perfect, Undressed and more!
Truli was a project I created with LA based producer/songwriter Danny Burke. Massive synths, big beats and catchy hooks combine to create pop that has heart. The footage from the music video was shot in Iceland by Dan Huiting (Bon Iver, Sylvan Esso, Bad Suns) and you can catch “Don’t Take My Summer Away” in the movie WISH UPON starring Joey King and Ryan Philippe, as well as on the official soundtrack!
F L O W E R Z was an album I wanted to make after years of growing up on female based pop music. Being raised in a household with 5 women shaped my musical taste. I wanted to create something that was inspired by my childhood but was also modern. “Portal” was featured in the new season of Veronica Mars, and others have been in shows like Total Bellas, the UK Royal Wedding, General Hospital and more!
