Our StoryLab Producer of the Month for May is Myesha Crutch. Myesha’s entire family is musical, each having registered at StoryLab and worked on a project over the past two years. In just one day Myesha produced and recorded some original lyrics using Logic Audio and a little R&B attitude from her soul-spiration, Jhene Aiko. You will want to dim the lights and kick back in your chair for this one!
This month’s featured producer is Dayvar (D’Real) Johnson, who has recently had a significant increase in the number of hits on his Soundcloud profile.
