We Are Casella

I PRODUCE ALT POP FOR AUTHENTIC ARTISTS AROUND THE WORLD

EVERYONE THINKS THAT TO BE SUCCESSFUL YOU HAVE TO JUMP ON A TREND..



..WHICH IS WHY SO MANY ARTISTS SOUND THE SAME NOWADAYS 😴

You're fed up with this sheep mentality too, right? It's time to break the mould and make music that sounds like YOU.




It is possible to have both originality and

commercial viability in your music (please stop with the vocal chops and predictable drops).

Songwriting

All the big artists have a helping hand in the writing process, and you should be no different!


I can help you with lyrics, chords, arrangement, topline - let's finish some of those ideas you've been sitting on for years.

Production

Ok so you've got a song. Now what? Here's where we add the parts that are going to make your song truly unique.


Programmed or live drums? Bass or synth? Keys? Guitar? How about a kazoo? Whatever it takes to make your song the best version of itself it can be.

Mixing

AKA the clean up! Let's make sure this song sounds great in as many environments as possible.


People listen on headphones, in a car, on a phone in the toilet.. These finishing touches are the last essential part, making a good record a great record.

ABOUT ME

(but more importantly.. how it helps you)

Hi, I'm David Kyle Payne.


I own and run Casella Studio, a remote production business based in London, UK. I also run a sample pack label named Casella Sounds.


I worked in the live music scene for many years as a session musician, but to be honest I'm bored of other people's formulaic and uninspired musicI want to help you be the weird and wonderful artist you truly are, and make the indie music scene a more interesting place.


I know what makes songs commercially successful (I spent the last 10+ years playing them every week) but I combine these principals with leftfield and alternate style productions.


If you like Lorde, Frank Ocean, Lana Del Rey, Imagine Dragons, St Vincent, The Japanese House, Tom Waits, James Blake, Christine & The Queens, The XX, Robyn, Elliot Moss, Rina Sawayama, Bleachers.. get in touch!


If you like NONE of these artists, please don't..
