Interview with Vince Nantes
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My friend August Rigo's EP, "1243." I was a co writer on the 3 track EP. It is not everyday you get to co write with someone that's written songs for Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, and Kehlani.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Artists projects, EP's and full albums, but I can't say who.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Anyone I work with on SoundBetter I would recommend. That's another great feature about this platform, building a community.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital, because that just the learning platform I grew from.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To deliver the most honest & top quality songs I can possibly give you.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being able to work with creative people like me and YOU. The process is fun, especially when you like the people you're working with.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Publishing questions after the song is completed. But I leave all that up to my lawyer.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Thankfully, none thus far.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: When do we get to work?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Everyone can tell you what they can or can't do, and give you all the reasons to do so. My confidence is no different, but I would rather you LISTEN to my work & then decide from there.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My laptop, Apollo Twin, my mic, a midi keyboard, and my cellphone.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been doing this for over 10 years. Music has always been my main focus.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My own.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: We all have that artist or artists we would all love to ideally work with. For me, it's being able to find & work with an artist from the ground up. Developing them into that artist everyone wants to work with.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Use your ears.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, R&B, Hip Hop/Rap
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Being able to write & produce a full song from beginning to end providing a fully mixed vocal demo.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Melodies & Toplines
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I don't have a general formula with how I work. I base everything of instinct and feeling. Sometimes the words come first, and sometimes it's the music.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a home studio set up. A dense room, fitted with professionally installed acoustic panels from top to bottom. Logic Pro X is my preferred DAW of choice as that is what I use to produce and record vocals. Aside from MIDI keyboards, I run everything through my Apollo Twin Duo, Yamaha HS8 monitors, & Avantone CV-12 Mic.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I tend to get inspired by similar people I work in the room with. I find myself always doing research on who wrote and who produced songs of today & yesterday. From there I gain my inspiration.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Songwriting full songs or top lines are the main types of work I do for my clients. I am capable of writing and producing full songs, but again, the need or want of the client comes first.
