Vikram Bam on SoundBetter

From punchy beats to mellow acoustic arrangements, I'm who you're looking for if you have an idea you want to see grow into a full-scale production.

Every song starts with a great idea, the idea that you've already had. I'm here to take your idea and fill it with melodies, instruments, synthesizers, live musicians and in the ever fervent hope that the right project comes along for this, animal noises.

I'm a graduate of Berklee College of Music, 2019, with a degree in Professional Music concentrating in Contemporary Writing and Production and Songwriting. (That's a really long and boring sentence, but there's 4 years of work that went into being able to type that out, so I'm hoping that it is at least mildly impressive).

My production instincts are a marriage between Indian, Rock, Dance and Jazz. I work on Logic Pro X, have a production suite set up with all kinds of fancy equipment which should be displayed on the side of my profile, I am trained in writing for string ensembles, jazz ensembles and I have over 5 years of professional studio production experience. I am a guitarist by nature, a vocalist by second nature and those who hear me play the piano call me a freak of nature. Whether that's a good thing or not I leave up to you.

They say don't judge a book by it's cover, I say don't judge a producer by his ability to write a bio. Head over to one of my reference tracks and if you like what you hear, hit me up and let's get to work!

    An up and coming guitarist with great ears who is flexible to adjust as the song evolves. He can read music, can add different styles to your song and is patient.

    It was a great experience. Vik brought in a fresh perspective to the track and that too well within our deadline. I think he understood what was our expectation and delivered that and some more. I especially liked the guitars that he played on the track. Wish him the best and will definitely work with him again.

Interview with Vikram Bam

  1. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  2. A: Rock, EDM, Beat Music, Pop.

  3. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  4. A: Definitely layering guitars to create an 'orchestral' type sound and I do love to do rock solos in songs. Brings me pure joy :P

  5. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  6. A: I pull from a lot of influences to create a unique sound. I like to bring a sitar-style playing to my soloing if that's something that you're interested in having in your song! I generally try to approach every song differently and try to bring something new to each project, whether it be a unique tone, style of playing or if there's room for it, even solo line!

  7. Q: What's your typical work process?

  8. A: I typically do a 'spotting session' with the client to get a better understanding of their needs when it comes to the track and the guitars. I then go on to layer guitars to set the foundation for the song. If there is a solo involved, I go through about 7-8 takes of improvisation and then comp where needed. Then I go for the 'filler' lines in between words!

  9. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  10. A: I play either on my Ibanez AZ series or Fender Strat, 2017 Mexican make. I record into Logic Pro X either through Amplitube 4 or my pedalboard that includes an OCD Distortion pedal, a Flashback Delay, a Corona Chorus and Messa Boost through an impulse response, through my Scarlett Interface. I listen on Genelec Q studio monitors and have an Oxygen 61 Midi controller.

  11. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  12. A: I'm inspired by a host of instrumental guitarists like Guthrie Govan, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Kurt Rosenwinkel, B.B King. That's a big part of where my sound comes from!

  13. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  14. A: The job I'm doing most often for clients is filling a track with guitars. This usually involves a lot of layering and some soloing. What's really fun is when I get someone who wants to build their track from the guitar - up, that way we can really craft something unique and interesting!
