Marcus H. on SoundBetter

Hey guys, I'm Marcus! I've worked with Grammy Nominated Producer/Engineer Doug Fenske as well as 4x Grammy Award Winner Brian Kennedy. I've also written songs for ExileTribe The Rampage which received millions of streams on YouTube peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 Japan. My music has also been featured on campaigns by AWA and McDonalds Japan

I've also written closely with Multi-Platinum Producer Dominic "DOM" Rodriguez on multiple projects and campaigns for SM ENT. and AVEX Music Publishing in the Asian territories. This ultimately led to me signing with Audity Music as a songwriter.

In August 2018, I signed with Fr8 Train Music Publishing/ Westlake Recording Studio in Hollywood, CA.

I always push myself to meet the goals of my clients. What means the most to me is when my clients can have the song they've envisioned. For that reason, I always ask for reference tracks that embody and capture the essence of what my clients are looking for.

Pop Vocal Style (Justin Bieber, Usher, Jason Derulo)
Urban/ R&B (Frank Ocean, Chris Brown, Tory Lanez)
Rap/HipHop/Trap (Big Sean, Future, Drake)

I record in Pro Tools and provide post-editing in every project. Vocals are recorded at Westlake Recording Studios writing suite with Apollo Twin & Z5600a

    It was truly an honor and a privilege to work with Marcus. I needed a song written, and usually when it comes to having people write for me I don’t really trust them because they don’t know my style, but Marcus was able to bring my song to life and created a amazing flow for my song I truly appreciated his time and effort to turn my song into a masterpiece definitely would recommend him to anyone💯

  6. A: Right now I'm working on writing songs with Mechi Pieretti

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: It really depends but I'd have to say Analog. Nothing beats the warmed of analog.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: My promise is that you'll get maximum effort for every job. I promise a turn around time that is more than reasonable for the job given.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: I love the fact that I can be creative and that my customers usually give me room to be as creative as I possibly can. I don't feel constricted.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Usually customers ask about splits and what my turn around time is like.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: The biggest misconception is that it is easy work and that it happens overnight.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: I ask what it is that their looking for. What is the overall vibe? What artist inspired the track. What songs (if any) can I use as a reference.

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Trust your ears. Work with someone open to seeing YOUR vision.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: I would take my trusty AT2020, my mbox (never let me down), Snowball for mic isolation, Headphones

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I've been writing songs since 2011. I went to school as Full Sail University for Audio Engineering in 2012. I eventually moved to Los Angeles from New Jersey in 2015. I attended Cre8 Music Academy in West Hollywood in 2017. I now am in-house writer at Westlake Recording Studio

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I would describe my style as vibey and fresh yet contemporary at times. It really depends on what the record calls for.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Write what you would want to hear in a song as opposed to what you think other people would want to hear. Listeners and since genuine emotions and authenticity.

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

  32. A: I usually work on Pop, Urban R&B, and Trap records. I'd say that rap/trap has become heavily melody driven which makes me able to use my strongest skill ever more often than years prior!

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: Ability to write strong, catchy, and interesting melodies that keeps the listeners invested and never bored

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

  36. A: I bring a very unique tone first and foremost. Starting in music with Rap/hip-hop, I've always been more lyric-oriented. It wasn't until 2014 where I can say melody writing became my strongest skill

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

  38. A: I typically get a track to work on by my clients and after loading it into pro tools, I make sure my key and bpm is set and matching the instrumental. Then I record a series of melodies for each part of the song (Verse, Pre, Hook, etc.). While a lot of people like to work from the hook first, I like to work from the first verse first.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I have a small studio space/ Production Room that I work out of at Westlake Recording Studio. I use a Mbox preamp and AT 2020

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

  42. A: I'm inspired by writers like James Fauntleroy, Frank Ocean, Ester Dean, Eric Bellinger, Ryan Tedder and Daniel Caesar. A few Producers that inspire me are Brian Kennedy, Harvey Mason Jr., Timbaland, Pharrell Williams, Calvin Harris, Ludwig Göransson and Diplo.

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

  44. A: I more commonly write Pop R&B and Urban songs. Verses Pre-Chorus and Hooks. I also sing demos for other writers very frequently
