Interview with Elle R.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm super proud to have written and released this latest single called "Gold for Water". Cause it reminds me of Jamaica, which I am finally visiting after years of promising my family I would.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm co-writing with a couple of artists from the UK.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: You'll be happy with what I deliver. And if it's something I don't think I can deliver, I can refer you to someone else.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Creating something new.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Question: When can it be delivered? My answer: When do you need it?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That if I'm a professional I should be able to write faster, and it should be a hit every time. I did develop processes and tricks that help me craft quickly. My good songs were based on ideas. Some I found in 10 min and others in 10 hours.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: If you like what you see and hear then try it out! If you already have a vision in mind, give examples of similar ideas that exist out there and give as much information as possible so we can deliver a great piece of work you like, and that is in line with what you imagined.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My mic, my laptop, my phone, my audio interface, and a huge ass battery charger.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been songwriting since 2009, and working professionally since 2012 with production houses.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Ed Sheeran because he looks like someone I'd like to create with and hang out with.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Toppling writing. I'm very strong with finding several melodic ideas.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My perspective.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Since we have hired me for toplines more then anything else, I usually start with finding the mood, the melodies and rhythm patterns that gels and feels good, and then start crafting the lyrics with the vibe I got from what I composed melodically.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a vocal booth with my equipment and a creative room with my guitar and my keys.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love all of Stevie Wonder's albums, and I really like the way Ed Sheeran approaches songwriting.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I work a lot with briefs for pop artists, or I am hired to create a song for a commercial brand (clothing, perfume, lights, food...)
