Indie Song Makers is an online guide designed for independent singers and songwriters who want to take their musical dreams and turn them into finished tracks. Whether you write your own songs, sing and record covers, or anything in between; I hope that this site provides all the tutorials and tips you need for success.
Who Runs This Site?
My name is Deane.
I’ve been writing lyrics and composing music for over 15 years in a variety of styles. In that time, I have published multiple albums, singles, instrumental beats, and covers. I create and produce music under several different artist names, including:
- Snarkboy (Indie Pop / LoFi)
- Wrecca (Alternative Pop)
- Nocturnal House (Synthwave / Darkwave)
- Gothic Fantasy Guild (Dark Academia / Neoclassical)
All of my music has been written, recorded, mixed, produced, and distributed just by me at home (in my bedroom) with no need for expensive studio space or hyper-technical audio equipment. I even run my own independent record label (Wry Records) that I use to release all my tunes.
With the wide assortment of music composition/production skills I’ve learned over the last decade and a half, I figured that some of it could come in handy for other indie singer-songwriters…like you. So I created this website as a repository of song-making knowledge: tips, guides, DIY techniques, and hacks that you can implement when creating your own music at home.
If you have any questions or comments, please fill out the contact form below and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
Please note that I do not accept unsolicited submissions of music for my record label.
