Why Ableton Live?

Ableton Live is a powerful software that revolutionises the way you create music. Its loop-based ideation abilities allow you to build and experiment with song ideas quickly and flexibly. 

With Live's Session View, you can improvise without the constraints of a timeline, making it perfect for capturing spontaneous creativity. The software’s flexible workflow lets you switch seamlessly between different stages of your songwriting process, ensuring that you stay in your creative zone without getting bogged down by technical details.

Ableton Live is a fantastic tool, and while some songwriters find it intimidating, you can rest assured that I am here to help you tame this software beast to do your bidding, and in the process become self-sufficient in making your music your way!

    Precision editing and mixing ensure your song is polished, balanced, and ready for release. We’ll work on refining every aspect to perfection.

Hiya!

I'm  Ayden Graham,

Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer. My music blends hopeful melancholy with raw rhythmic edge, whimsical storytelling and poignant lyricism, chamber music elegance and grooves from rock, jazz, and funk, set against an eerie electronica backdrop.

I was honoured to receive the prestigious Helene Wurlitzer Foundation songwriting artist-in-residence grant for 2020/21 and earned my MA in Songwriting from the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at the University of Limerick, Ireland, in 2023.
