Interview with FUNK STUDIO
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I do many demos for songwriters in Nashville.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Nashville and LA top producers. I grew up in the 90s and early 2000s with a wide range of music influence.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a Universal Audio Apollo 8, Logic, Pro-Tools. A vocal booth that I built and acoustic treated mix room.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Usually I start with a worktape of acoustic and guitar. Loading that into logic and stretching it in time to the grid. I feel this keeps some originality and allows some of the magic from when the song was written to carry through to the demo. Sometimes I build the beat first depending on the songs needs.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I have creative and forward approach to my productions, Concentrating on the feel, emotion and soul of the lyrics and melody.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Most artist have tell me that I have a way with vocals. I believe this is due to processing and philosophy on where they sit in a mix I see the story being presented to the listener.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Usually Country or blend of country and pop. I love all music though.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Make the song work as a machine that takes you on a journey for a few minutes.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Post Malone would be pretty cool. I love how his productions sound. Would be cool to do a country collaboration with him.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I try to Push the limits and produce with sounds that I haven't heard along with subtle things I have heard to bring a sense of familiarity to mix.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I plan to make producing and mixing a lifelong career. I've been producing for 11 years. It has been my full time job for over a year now.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Imac, Apollo, SM7b,
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Have a listen and let me know if you could see your song reflected in the work I do.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Reference mixes can help in the songs direction from the start. I ask if there are any songs they would like me to channel some aspects of the production in the songs they record.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Im not actually a mad scientist. However I have spent and still do spend so much time studying musical trends and physics of audio.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Can I release this as a Single... the answer used to be yes but I have recently been changing that. I have a Single rate and a Demo rate. I just have to be aware of the quality of work I release. I spend much more time mixing and going over a production with a fine tooth comb on singles to really make them stand out. My reputation is important to me.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I am literally living the dream. There is nothing else I would rather be doing.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: A mixture is nice. Digital allows so many new new ways to manipulate audio and push the boundaries of whats possible.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Some of the Nashville producers on here do great work.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I always make sure satisfaction is a priority.
