Ghostwriting, the act of hiring a lyricist to assist with the composition of a song without giving them attributing credit, is an overlooked profession and an important contributing role in the mainstream music industry. The talented songwriters behind the radio-hits that billions of music enjoyers listen to every day are the genius minds that ultimately fuel the popularity of these renowned songs.
Carter Davis, known for his artist and rapper name NORD, was born in Oregon and is currently just eighteen-years-old. As a newly oriented college student who is currently studying the craft of audio engineering, Davis has made a rapid and major breakthrough into the music industry, being credited for the songwriting on projects released by the likes of Drake, 21 Savage, Ice Spice, Rebecca Black, Addison Rae, and many more.
