ZIA – Topline writer, Vocalist, Bassist, Guitarist, Producer / Composer

“Hi, I am a Topline melody writer, track writer, lyricist, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. I write in many different styles including acoustic, electronic, pop, dance, rock, funk, RnB, blues, country, ballads, sound design, and songs for children. I write whatever (I term) “the muse” delivers as a download to me to share with you.

I am interested in collaborating with a variety of people and project types so that includes international DJ’s, Producers, Brands, Synchronisation agents and companies, Publishers, and Major Label Artists and Record Labels in dance, pop and other genres.

I use Logic Audio with UAD plug ins, Apollo Interface, Beesneez Elly microphone in my home studio, leading software virtual instruments, utilising Skype, Dropbox and We Transfer for production and delivery. I very quickly come up with melodic ideas (Toplines) over dance and pop tracks and 85% of the time I write my acoustic songs, both the lyrics and melody, within the hour.

How I like to work with people:

Using clear communication, follow through, understanding and delivery of deadlines, agreements / contracts delivered for clarity and assurance of details for everyone involved, flexibility, enjoying the excitement of the creative and collaborative process = great work + good fun!

Working with DJs:

Standard Remix Contract signed

To create a Topline for you – Send me a track and I will write the Topline lyrics and melody, and / or add keys and synth lines if required, record, and send as an mp3, and if approved will deliver files to you in high quality wav file, to mix.
Standard agreement regarding writing of top-lines agreed upon before commencement.

 

Working with Publishers / Label Artists:

– Send me the idea, Skype together, create, Skype.
– Send me the idea, meet in studio, write + record = viola!
Standard collaborative co-writing agreement / contract regarding writing of Toplines (lyrics and melody) and all music parts agreed upon before commencement, reassessed on completion of track release.
