Absolutely loved working with Zack for one of my songs. He's very very professional, patient and efficient with his work. He completely understood the vibe of the song and took the song to another level - with the perfect sound selection, ear candy and a natural instinct towards modern pop/R&B/Hip hop as well as other international genres. Will definitely work with him again.
As a brand new artist just getting things started, it was a big deal for me to entrust Zack with working on my first and second singles, the first music I will ever release, and he did an incredible job on both tracks. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Regardless of whatever feedback I had and how anal I got over every little detail, Zack was always kind, patient, and professional. Hope to have another opportunity to work with him in the future!
Zack is an amazing producer with an original touch. He transformed my track with great mixing and a cool vibe. Highly recommend.
Zack is a talented producer! He was very kind, flexible, and dedicated throughout the process. I worked with him on a pop song and I am extremely satisfied with the results. He was open minded in addition to having many creative ideas, which made working with him easy and fun. I would highly recommend working with Zack!
Zack is an incredible producer. I have never heard my vocals shine and pop as they do for the project he worked on for me. If you're looking for a professional, highly skilled and easy to work with producer, I can't recommend Zack enough. I will definitely be working with him again soon.
It was a pleasure working with Zack. When I sent him the song, he understood the vision behind it and got right to work. We worked remotely and went back and forth with the production of the song. He was always happy to incorporate my notes into his production and always willing to try things out. He is professional & organized with his approach and made sure I was happy with the final product before we closed the project.
Zack is such an amazing producer. I could not be happier with the experience that I had with him. He does everything that he can to genuinely understand your vision and will stop at nothing to make sure that that vision is achieved. Super professional while still making you feel totally comfortable and at ease. Will 100% be working with him again in the future.
Zack is one of the most naturally gifted producers I have had the pleasure of working with. Even sending him a muffled voice mail never stopped him from being able to immediately hear the concept and vision I had for a song. I don’t have a technical music background, so I really appreciated the patience and guidance he has given me with every project. Zack is the best!
Zack is incredibly masterful at taking really bare bone ideas (voice notes, shitty demos) and transforming them into radio ready recordings - He's patient and collaborative, attentive and reliable. He also has you covered for mixing!!
Made my first song and have been working with Zack for about two years now. Zack always is able to take my ideas and bring them to life musically. Aside from that he is always available and willing to give advice and help through any questions or concerns you have. I would definitely recommend anyone working with him, you will not regret it.
Working with Zack is always the best experience. Zack is incredibly creative and knows what needs to be done. My studio sessions with him are always so comfortable and efficient. He is professional and to the point - all while being the nicest and coolest guy ever! Whether its producing, mixing, mastering, or songwriting, Zack covers it all and puts all of himself into the project!
Interview with Zack Burke
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That I will work tirelessly to ensure you are 100% happy and excited about your song and our final product.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I recently worked on a song for the artist Vincent that I am super proud of. This song is so special because we created and wrote it in my cowriter's living room in his apartment in North Hollywood. The setup wasn't anything crazy or high level but the song that came out of the session is something I still think about to this day. It was our first session together and we were able to bond and write something so honest and personal that has become of my favorite things I've worked on. It also makes me proud because since it's release it has amassed over 6 Million streams on Spotify - which is far beyond any of us could have dreamed of in that living room a year ago.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am a huge fan of pop producers like Max Martin and Shellback (Maroon 5, The Weeknd) who are able to make songs sound so full while being simple. They give artists a canvas to do their best work on the song. I also am a huge fan of urban producers like Louis Bell (Post Malone) and Oak Felder (Kehlani) because they always find a way to make their productions interesting without distracting the audience and taking the focus off the vocalist!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Yes, if you're looking for an amazing songwriter to help you craft your songs I would highly recommend Dylan Emmet who is incredibly talented and has a great work ethic.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working with artists who are signed to Sony and Warner Music Group on upcoming singles, which I'm really excited about. As well, a lot of my work is with independent artists because I love becoming a part of an up-and-coming artist's team and building and breaking into the industry with them. That's the most exciting and fulfilling part of working on music for me!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital, because we can do everything we need with creativity and a computer.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love meeting new people and learning about their stories and the inspiration behind their songs! For me as a producer, it is so inspiring to work with other creative people and creating something new with others that didn't exist the day before.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My guitar and 4 friends to be with because the best music is made my people who are having fun and enjoying themselves. I firmly believe that listeners can hear if the artist and writers were enjoying themselves and having fun when listening to music.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I grew up playing in bands throughout high school and college but never knew I wanted to do music for a living. I went to school for Business Marketing and was initially planning on working in the business world but after starting to produce for artists in my classes I knew that music had to be my career. After college, I started working my way up to larger and larger artists and made music my full time career in 2018.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Keep it simple and authentic.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Listening and understanding what it is a client wants. I'd rather spend time on the phone and have a conversation before starting so that we are 100% set up for success to make a banger!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My own musical sensibility and style as well as the ability to look from a birds-eye view and highlight the best part of an client's ideas and make the absolute best version of their song.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I start by speaking to an artist to understand their vision and what they're looking for musically. I love chatting about references and where they hear their project going. Then I translate that vision into a reality and provide you with a banging and amazing song!
