Bio

I love words and telling stories with them. Give me three and a half minutes and I'll tell you a story. I have an extensive catalogue of written material and try to write at least a verse everyday. I was born and raised in Arkansas and fell in love with music while attending Jazz fests. I love writing poem, lyrics and songs. I want to write songs with meaningful lyrics and melodies that will be played for years to come. As for instrument, I love the sax, haven't mastered it, but love to try and play it. Notice I do not list it as a talent.

On Kompoz, I love the collaborative atmosphere. When it comes to collaborations I create, I will usually accept most of the ideas and seps uploaded, that does not mean I will use them all. My process is to listen to the different seps alone and in combination with other ideas and see what "feels" right. After I get the pieces I like and that mesh together, I try to make the sound come together but keep the feel of the original thought I had for the song. I may only use a piece of a seps instead of the entire thing to make the feel right. I love keys and stings and the "drama" they bring to a track. This is my process. If I accept something, but don't use it does not make it not good, but it may have not just fit this piece.

I will usually, add a mix of me singing to a track, that is always to be used as a reference. I cant sing and you will never see me trying out for The Voice. But I've noticed that it gives real singers a chance to see how I am linking lyrics to melody. Don't judge the track on my singing ---- it is just a blueprint

This was collab heaven. I would like to thank Sha, great vox, Marco killed the guitar, Michel with bass was magic and Don "DT" bought it all together with his mixing, and everything else he added. It was great watching this one develop.

I want to thank my daughter Robyn for the vox on this track. Its hard getting your daughter to do what you want them to do. She did great though. Martin, thanks for the mix you are awesome.
Select
Thanks for the help on this one. You guys did great. Bobby your vox were great and the rest of you are, as always awesome.
Select
Thank you Mack and Sela, your vox on this are amazing. Martin you did such a wonderful job with this mix and the adds were spot on.
Select
This was one of the most personal songs I've ever written because the subject is close to home. I want to thank the following people for making this so special: Najib, Ben, Christine (super vox), Bill and Martin for bringing this from a ruff concept with a bad reference track to this. I hope it moves you

Amazed at how this turned out. Justin did an amazing job with the vocals.
