The newly released video for Dylan Owen’s single, directed by Brian Petchers, perfectly captures the nostalgic, and heartfelt message of the song. So proud to have produced this instrumental, alongside Skinny Atlas. Shout out to the songs mix engineer Billy Centenaro, for making my acoustic guitar sound so good!
“Touch Me” is the second single off of I’m Desperate For You by Motteo
As described by the artist, “Maybe you know this pattern as well as I do: you go out on countless dates and happy hours and house parties and coffees for months/years and yet you still go home alone feeling unwanted. Eventually, you settle for dispirited promiscuity with someone you’ve met online. The modern dating cycle. Anyway, these songs are a sort of articulation of that loneliness and angst. I’d call it the modern deficit of intimacy.”

Motteo is an emerging alt-pop artist releasing his first EP, I’m desperate for you, in summer 2019. Set to punchy synth textures with catchy pop melodies, Motteo writes about a deficit of intimacy. Fascinated by intimacy and relationships, the artist writes about his experience and what he’s witnessed in modern dating and social/online life.
I worked with Motteo in NYC in late 2018 developing his demos into fully produced songs. I also produced the vocal recording sessions and edited and mixed the EP’s vocals.
The first single off the EP is “Desperate”, which explores anxious longing for lost love.
