Songwriter Demos

Welcome to my demo production page.

For over a decade I have been honing my skills producing demos for fellow songwriters. I take great pride in carefully crafting acoustic and full band demos from my home studio near Edinburgh in Scotland.

I like to spend time with a song working out how best to approach the instrumentation, arrangement and production. As a songwriter myself, I understand how precious a song can be and I always treat songs as if they were my own.

Many of my productions have been used to pitch to major labels, publishers and artists.

If you have a song that you would like to hear as a fully realised production, or you want to chat about the process then please drop me an email at to discuss your project.

Client Testimonials:

I coach songwriters all over the world and many are focusing on pitching for Nashville. So many things can go wrong trying to capture the right kind of demo for country.
A client of mine played me one of her new demos before pitching it for the country market. I asked where in Nashville it was done . She told me it was this awesome guy in .... Edinburgh! I had to find out more and after talking with David I started sending lots of my clients to him for their demos . They have all a word ...awesome !
— Mark Cawley (Hit US Songwriter and Musician -Nashville, TN)
David Latto just finished the demo of a song I co-wrote called Time. He did an awesome job and I highly recommend him.  He is fast, courteous, and professional. Most importantly he is amazing! As a songwriter that has written with Nashville artists and had a major label cut I can say that David’s demos are perfect for songwriters that want to pitch their songs to publishers,artists, or just have their songs presented in a current and professional manner. I have pitched his demos to favorable reviews on Music Row in Nashville and will continue to use his services. Great Job! I love David’s voice and guitar playing!
— David Wade (Canton, OH)
David has a great ear, a fantastic voice and wonderful guitar skills. He has a way of “feeling” what the song needs and the ability to create it in his studio for a reasonable fee. I would recommend David for any demo, any time!
— Jayne Sachs (Dayton, OH)
I would like to commend David on his splendid work on the song, Those Winsome Irish Eyes. It is clear that the has put the same dedication, flair, abilities and guitar skills into the realm of Irish/country music that he has into other genres in the past. Beautiful music! As a lyricist I hope to use his services again.
— Ken Watkins (UK)
It’s beautiful. What I thought it could sound like, brought to life!
— Pat Giblin (Cincinnati, OH)
I have used many demo services here in the U.S. and I have to say that David ranks up with the best of the best. He understands what it takes to make a great demo. His ability to interpret a song and put such beautiful vocals and guitar parts in them is amazing. I can’t wait to pitch the two songs that he recently recorded for me.
