As a composer for film and video, I've provided original music for international advertising campaigns with major organizations including the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Roots, and Frank and Oak; and for movies that have appeared in cinemas at major film festivals including Cannes. Additionally, I've worked as a sound designer, editor and mixer on several films, documentaries, podcasts and radio projects.

    From drumming to song writing , rapping and singing, I have 17 years of experience with music. Every lyric is calibrated to a bpm that is calculated, i'm very passionate about writing songs! I have mainly worked with hip hop artists, but have also ventured out to different genres such as rock, and pop. Music is a way for me to express how I feel deep inside when words aren't enough. It's always been an outlet for me to openly communicate my feelings, thoughts, and emotions. Besides being with my family, there is nothing else in this world I would rather be doing.

    I have a vast array of life experiences. I am a polymath. A jack of all trades. I have tried my hand at many things and all of these experiences have given me something to say. About spirituality, about the environment, about relationship, and about the connection between all of the above. I have a degree in religion, a masters in chemistry, a doctorate in health. I have started a nonprofit, adopted three kiddos, lived all over the world, fallen in love, lost and gained spiritual beliefs. I am bilingual. Now I want to use all of that experience to create art. I love to create lyrics that make your soul sing, and pair them with melodies and harmonies that make you close your eyes and give you goose bumps. I love to take an idea and make it a reality, from the simplest jingle or children's song, to the loneliest ballad. I love to create something new, to exceed expectations, and to bring a project to life. I also love sound editing. I have a passion for podcasting, from the opening jingle to the seamless transitions to the closing call to action. I have edited hundreds of podcasts and love to make the visionary's dream come to life through sound.

We are an integrated network of musicians, singers, voiceover artists, producers, and translators ready to collaborate with you and make your project unique and outstanding!

And then I created Inmix Sounds to provide not only the voice but also the music, lyrics and mix to many more brands, helping them grow in excellence and success. So far, we've been working for amazing and number one brands such as COCOMELON, Little Baby Bum, Blippi, Plim Plim and many more.

    As the lead singer and songwriter/producer of the Canadian hard rock band Rise In Vein, I'm used to working on both sides of the music, as an artist, and also a producer. I've been writing songs since a very young age and have continuously crafted my skills in many genres. Even though my musical career led me in the heavy rock genre, I've been writing, recording, and producing other artists from different genres such as pop, country, rock, and everything between. My writing style is very versatile. Owning my own studio, I can deliver professional production and mix up to the industry standards. My job is to help you bring your project to life. Here are some points where I can help: -We can start from scratch and create ideas and songs from the ground up -Already have something done?

    Well, I started out writing youtube scripts on Upwork 3 years ago, and so far am now among the Top-Rated Freelancers on Upwork that are specializing in YouTube content creation. I not only write engaging and interesting scripts, but I will also Edit your video, and if you don't have a Voice over, according to the type of niche you are in, I will refer you to one. ** Scripting ** Writing scripts for 3 years just on Upwork is not a joke. I have been doing this professionally. So, I understand what works and what doesn't. There is no need to pay me for a script I know very well won't grab attention on YouTube. This is one of the reasons you need to choose me. I don't just play as a Freelancer; you get a partner. Someone who knows and understands his work. One who writes interesting, engaging, and plagiarism-free scripts. A script that builds up suspense and is creative. And by the way, I have all the premium tools a writer should have, a premium Grammarly account, as well as a premium Copyscape account. Be assured of quality! Moreover, you get someone who will advise you on the kind of topics you don't need to focus on, on YouTube. I will share some topics that will be of much help according to your niche. ** Video Editing ** When it comes to video editing, this is one of the important sections of a video. The script might be well-detailed and interesting, and the Voice might be stunning, but it's all a waste if the video is poor. Moreover, if the editing has some copyrighted material, the same case, zero work. With my Youtube experience on the copyright policy as well as the YouTube terms of use, be rest assured you will get not only a professional video but also a video that hooks and grabs the viewer's attention. A video that no one would skip to watch later. They might probably rewatch it. I mean WHY not? Something catchy and fun to watch.

How to Hire Top Songwriters

What is a songwriter?

A songwriter is an individual who uses their creative talents to write music and lyrics for a finished musical piece. The best songwriters are capable of creating music and lyrics for a variety of genres, including pop, rock, country, R&B, rap, and alternative, and are able to do so for a variety of purposes.

How do you hire a songwriter?

You can source songwriting talent on Upwork by following these three steps:

  • Write a project description. You’ll want to determine your scope of work and the skills and requirements you are looking for in a songwriter.
  • Post it on Upwork. Once you’ve written a project description, post it to Upwork. Simply follow the prompts to help you input the information you collected to scope out your project.
  • Shortlist and interview songwriters. Once the proposals start coming in, create a shortlist of the professionals you want to interview. 

Of these three steps, your project description is where you will determine your scope of work and the specific type of songwriter you need to complete your project.

How much does it cost to hire a songwriter?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced songwriter may command higher fees but also work faster, have more-specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their songwriting services more competitively. 

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project. 

How do you write a songwriter job post?

Your job post is your chance to describe your project scope, budget, and talent needs. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

Job post title

Create a simple title that describes exactly what you’re looking for. The idea is to target the keywords that your ideal candidate is likely to type into a job search bar to find your project. Here are some sample songwriter job post titles:

  • Need a short song created for my pet goldfish
  • Technology company needs catchy jingle for new product launch
  • Recording artist needs new songs for upcoming album

Project description

An effective songwriter job post should include: 

  • Scope of work: From lyric writing to melody creation, list all the deliverables you’ll need. 
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project. 
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain genres, purposes, or styles, mention this here. 
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

Songwriter job responsibilities

Here are some examples of songwriter job responsibilities:

  • Write original lyrics to accompany new music
  • Create jingle for new product launch
  • Write original music for series of poems to create new songs

Songwriter job requirements and qualifications

Be sure to include any requirements and qualifications you’re looking for in a songwriter. Here are some examples:

  • Experience writing popular songs for popular recording artists
  • Portfolio of catchy jingles for product commercials
  • Ability to write catchy pop songs for K-pop audience
