okay...WHO THE F#*K IS WILLIE CORTEZ?

 

A life long musician, I have formed my very first rock'n'roll group at age 10! (we were playing originals...yep).      

Nine years later I moved to London where I joined a few indie bands on drums. This led me to travel quite a bit, touring Europe, the UK and the United States all the while meeting very cool and talented people, some of them would end up writing their own little share of rock history...


At age 27 I got a contract with EMI Records to compose, produce & perform my debut solo album titled 'FARSUCT' which means "FromAReliableSourceUCanTrust".        

It took 3 years of hard work before its release in 2004.

I fluked out in 2006 and met french film directors Julien Séri (Night Fare), Franck Vestiel (Eden Log) and Cédric Jimenez (La French) who gave me my first shot as a film score composer.

I teamed up with my brother Alex and we composed a handful of original scores, under the mysterious and oh so hard to remember moniker 'Seppuku Paradigm'. I guess our big break was Pascal Laugier's controversial and hard hitting MARTYRS, which I am very proud to have been part of!

In 2010 we won the 'Best Original Soundtrack' award at Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival for the french/hong-kong production 'Red Nights' (dir: Julien Carbon & Laurent Courtiaud).

Today, as well as staying creative at all times and working on personal projects, I am still involved in the film and music industry, as a multi-instrumentalist (drums, bass, guitar, keyboards), vocalist, music programmer, composer, producer and mixing engineer.

Experienced, creative, and very versatile as a producer I will work towards what truly sets you apart from others rather than making you a radio friendly copycat of the flavour of the month. 
A true music lover, I take my work to heart. 
I operate from home where I've set up my hybrid analog / digital studio.

As a professional I will adapt to your project specifications and budget while offering multiple options. 

  • Full Production / Mixing. 
  • Remote Mixing. 
  • Song writing. 
  • Arrangements. 
  • Top line writing. 
  • Vocals (backing or lead - remotely or on site). 
  • Programming (drums, keyboards, effects etc...)

I also work with a team of musicians, programmers, composers and mixing engineers that can be brought in to your project depending on your budget and needs.
