StringStorm, as what he is commonly referred to by his peers, is your simple run-of-the-mill city boy. He makes songs, does voices and sound effects for a living. He's been at it since 2004 and even though he's had years of experience, he's still trying to make himself better at his craft. Personality-wise, he is a very quiet and reclusive person. But he can adjust himself well enough to be sociable if he needs to go with the flow.Due to his deep toned voice, his natural trailer voice is often sought after by different project directors. Even after all that, he is still honing his skills to be a flexible and proficient voice actor. Because of his baritone voice and well executed performances, he has taken up roles on a plethora of film and video games, some of them even from triple A companies.On the side, he likes to dabble on music, taking inspiration from well known symphonic metal bands. He likes cutesy anime idols along with his grimdark space marines, a bunch of RTS games, and pizza topped with pineapple.

If you want GOOD work, this is not the guy you want! But if you want GREAT work then this is the guy you're looking for! StringStorm took my mixed up thoughts and brought them to life! I will definitely hire his service again over and over since this guy is absolutely worth it!- Zigahopes
Communication was clear and open every step of the way and the finished product was so much more than I could have hoped for. Excellent work all around. I simply can't recommend Stringstorm's work enough. Superb job. I love it.- Too Cool for Tabletop
StringStorm did an amazing job with providing our official voiceover we use to promote our brand to thousands around the world. It was delivered in a timely manner, and not only that, but Stringstorm was willing to re-record and work with us until the voiceover was perfect!- #StopClickbait
I found StringStorm through a very fortunate series of events and I am so glad that I did! He produced very high quality voice overs for a very reasonable price, and kept the end product on schedule and on budget. He kept every promise he made and the end result was fantastic!- NexusCore
Stringstorm's low and growly voice was exactly what we needed to convey power in our character. Working with him was also easy and he was able to re-record lines until we were satisfied with the recording.- Funky Panda

How much would it roughly cost to commission a song, with lyrics and vocals?
Usually, the cost for an instrumental is $60 per minute. If you would, for example, commission a 3 minute instrumental, that would land you to a total of $180. Maybe more depending on the complexity of your song. Note that this is just for the instrumental. This doesn't include the cost of lyrics writing, the effort and time it takes for the lyricist to research about the song's topic, the vocal coach recording a guide for the singers, the recording done by the singers and their revisions, etc.The rates of lyricists and vocalists vary from talent to talent so I can't give an exact number. But if you want to commission a full song, complete with lyrics and singing, be ready to spend around $400+ for a 3-4 minutes song.
Why does my commissioned song have some similarities as your uploads/someone else's commission:
I don't have access to a whole lot of plugins and libraries so I have to make do with what I have on hand. I do try my best to avoid having similiarities but given that what I have is very limited as it is, it is incredibly hard not to repurpose certain elements in the song you commissioned for something else.Update: Because of the increased rates, I am now able to afford better software and virtual plugins. Even hire people to collaborate with me. Expect the similarities to still be there but not as frequently as before.
What can I do with the commissioned song? Who owns the rights?
The commissioned song comes with the permission to use it commercially short of selling it directly. That being said, you may use it for monetized content. You may also use it on your streams if you do livestreaming. The only thing you have to do on your part is to provide credit appropriately with a link to my channel somewhere.As far as ownership is concerned, simply put that you are the producer of the song while I am its composer. And as the composer, the song's owner is still me. As the producer, you essentially have the rights to use it for commercial purposes.If you've written your own lyrics, then the lyrics obviously belongs to you. But by commissioning, you are giving me permission to use your lyrics as an integral part of the songwriting process. The words, context, and meaning still belong to you. But any musicality behind them are my work.
What entails 'commercial purposes'?
As stated in the previous question, you may the song you commissioned on monetized content. However, you are not allowed to upload the song on its own to a distributor (Distrokid, Sounddrop, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, etc) as well as to sell it directly unless its been heavily modified (Remixing, sampling, singing over it, or having someone sing over it would be considered has heavily modified). Putting it up on youtube on its own is fine, though, as long as you credit me somewhere. If there is something I failed to mention here, I still get the final say whether something is allowed or not.Simply put:
- Uploading it on your YouTube channel? Good!
- Using it on your videos? Good!
- Playing it on your livestream? Good!
- Uploading it on soundcloud, spotify, itunes, etc. but its heavily modified? Good!
- Doing anything listed above without proper credit? Not allowed!
- Uploading it on soundcloud, spotify, itunes, etc. as it is? Not allowed!
- Unsure if something you're doing/planning on doing with the song is allowed or not? Ask me! I'm just an email away!
Why all this?
I'm not strict when it comes to enforcing the rules here. I only really enforce any of what I said when I know someone is stealing or plagiarizing. The only reason these rules exist is because I have been a victim of theft before because I operate on an honor system and still do. This means I have absolutely no way of preventing or defending myself from theft and plagiarism so the best I could do is to put some rules in place. Even then, I'm not entirely sure if these rules are actually enforceable but its better than nothing.At the end of the day, if you do good by me, I'll do good by you and more.
