    Rachel and Hanzy - I Saw You

    Rachel and Hanzy - I Saw You

    The song "I Saw You" which was release 19th November 2019 was inspired by "Yemi Alade - Johnny". It is meant to be funny and relative. This song is a mix between afro-beat and pop genre. It tells a story about infidelity from both a man and woman's perspective. The UK Singer-Songwriter "Rachel Babatunde" and Nigerian Producer/artist "Chibuikem Onyinanya" came together to make such a unique afropop style for the very first time. The song is under xxdestinedstarzrecordsxx and available in various distribution websites i.e spotify, tidal, itunes etc.

    Session Recording Saviour

    Session Recording Saviour

    I work as a session musician for a large portion of my job as a full time cellist. With countless studio sessions under my belt there is a small set of tools that have saved me time and time again, keeping those expensive studio hours efficient for both me and my clients, and making sure I present myself in the most professional manner.

    How to write music.

    How to write music.

    The first thing I usually get asked as a composer is, where do you start when you write a new piece? Unfortunately there is no definitive answer to that question as each piece is uniquely different. In my second ballet, La Feuille Qui Tombe, I started writing 3 minuets into the overture specifically for bassoon, clarinet and cello, but for my massive tone poem Levensverhaal I started halfway through the second of two parts with a solo organ. Needless to say there is no set way to write a piece of music. This however doesn't mean I can't walk you through the necessary steps.

    Music For Human Beings

    Music For Human Beings

    You could listen to music non stop without repeating a song for the rest of your life and never come close to hearing everything that’s ever been recorded. The flip side of this is that it’s pretty much impossible to make the drive from your home to your place of work without hearing the same three annoying new releases played at least twenty times.

    Songs for the Aching Mother

    Songs for the Aching Mother

    Heh, I wonder what The Glorious Sons would say if they saw my eerie spin on their album cover "Young Beauties and Fools". A lone woman riding a one-eyed old spook in the twilight - his empty eye socket visible to the observant viewer. Making this little twist made me feel like I was back in high school art class, completing an expression piece.
