Services

For over two decades I’ve been working exclusively with emerging artists on the development of their music, serving as a mentor for everything from songwriting, performance technique, individual artistic concept, personal branding to providing an introduction into the music industry and the business. Ive served as a GRAMMY U Mentor, and as a clinician for a number of international music competitions, and have experience in every aspect of the business. Artists that are a good fit are often signed to our label, Next Records and we are open to receiving and reviewing your demos, giving meaningful feedback, and helping in any way we can to get you to the next level as an artist.
