  • "The Artist Development Program and Will have taught me early on in my career and helped me lay the foundations to what my sound is today. He is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to music production and has a talent in being able to explain and break things down to even the more novice producer."

  • “I created the Artist Development Program as something I wish I had access to when I started out as a music producer. I studied sound and music technology, I worked as a sound engineer, I shadowed other engineers and spent hours experimenting in my studio. Through this program I want to make that process easier for others and share my own journey as an artist.”
