I’ve already given Joel a review, but i wanted to give him one more seeing that he’s consistently, timely, and professional 100% of the time. I’ll definitely be working with him again.

Interview with Joel Isaac
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do consists of writing lyrics to songs, creating arrangements, and writing melodies to projects; but writing lyrics is the number one thing I do.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Matt Healy from The 1975, BlackThought from The Roots, Micheal Jackson, Chris Martin from Coldplay, Quincy Jones, and Chris Greely (Bethel Music Producer) have all played huge roles on influencing my musical taste and style.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I’m operating with Logic on a laptop, and am using a steinberg mark II interphase to hook up to my midi keyboard.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Oh, it really depends on what I’m doing. If I’m writing lyrics then I like to keep an open space and my laptop open so I can be listening to different songs that may spark different ideas as far as phrasing.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: To be frank, it depends on the song. Everyone has their own unique way of doing things and viewing the world, so in that sense when I’m working on a song I bring the truest version of myself, because I don’t know any other way.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I’m pretty good with arrangements, but there is always room for growth.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: As of late I’ve been working on some post rock projects with some 80s pop influences.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I know a lot of people just go straight to EQing, but I like to level everything out before hand just to make the process easier for myself. Usually when I do this I even find that what I was going to EQ actually sounds fine.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I’d like to be a ghostwriter for “The 1975” just on one song. Mostly because I want to see how Matt Healy comes up with his amazing lyrics.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Relaxed, yet sophisticated, precise, and accurate.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I’m pursing psychology right now actually, but I’m wanting to network more to eventually find people that want to be in a band so I can play drums. The drums are my number one passion.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Assuming the desert island wouldn’t have electricity, I don’t really know. I mean, if it’s an actual desert island then it wouldn’t really make sense to bring any gear (electronic wise) I mean, unless you brought a generator. Honestly. I would just bring a five piece drum set; does that count?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Make sure to keep your options open, and even though people may be really nice their style may not exactly fit your project, including myself; so it’s important for both the client and provider to be clear with what the former specifically is looking for and what the latter will intentionally provide.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: 1. What kind of sound are you looking for? 2. What artists would be close to that sound? 3. What’s the end goal? 4. What’s the inspiration behind this idea? 5. What exactly do you think hiring me will help with on your project?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception about what I do might be from people who think Music Production isn’t an art form.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Question: How long have you been doing this? Answer: For about five or so years.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love having the freedom to make my creative mark on a project not only for my benefit, but for the joy and benefit of my clients.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Art made with care.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: It depends on the project and how much time I am allotted. Digital is definitely a bit easier to use, as far as location wise in general, but depending on the project (as stated above) Analog can be very very fun to use.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Callan Searcy and Christian Lester are two people on SoundBetter I would highly recommended. Callan is a Producer Christian is a Session Drummer
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I’m working on a personal project, but I’m finished with the music. I’ve actually been trying to figure out what visual art I can add to it.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Last year I had the opportunity to create, mix and master, write the lyrics to, and play all the parts to my own song. It was a great experience and I hope to continue.
