Very talented singer!
a terrific vocalist and super pro
Tae really delivers he is super
really excellent singer and puts the vibe you want!!!!
I've had the pleasure of working with Tae on dozens of studio sessions that I have directed, in person and remotely for final production tracks. I even trust Tae to get the sound and performance I need undirected. He's a great talent with a mammoth musical IQ. Tae always brings top tier quality to each album I hire him for.
Tae Brooks created my intro/outro jingle for my YouTube channel http://youtube.com/lamarrwilson back in 2013, and to date it is the singular most popular thing on my channel that people come back to hear and feel happy with. It is something I will use for years to come.
Interview with Tae Brooks
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Either. Not a diehard either way. I've heard great songs done both ways. to me the equipment isn't the most important part. It's how you use it.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I don't make promises. I also try not to take on projects outside of what I know I can do.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That it's easy or not worth a certain dollar amount.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I usually just listen to what they send and ask enough questions to get a feel for what they are wanting. And I try not to take projects I don't think I'd be good on.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Not really a gear head. I'd already have my vocals with me, so probably something to play music on and to record ideas on.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Not a producer but I would just say to make sure you have the right vocal tone and key for the project.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My EP and demos for others
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Making an idea become a reality.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Give me the most detailed description of what you want. The more I know the better I can do on your project.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been singing since I was 10, so 11 years now. I did years of covers along with original music. I am currently growing and figuring out what the next stage of my career will look like.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, urban, hip hop. I can also do ballads
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Versatility. I did covers weekly for over a year and I learned to be super versatile.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to make sure I'm using the right voice for each song. Every song deserves a voice or vocal tone that makes it stand out.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Once a client notifies me about a project I make sure I'm clear on what they are looking for. If I have questions, I ask, otherwise we get started. Usually I can schedule a session that day or the next day. If longer, I'd let the client know. Changes will be made on the same time frame.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: We have a personal studio so I have access daily. My brother is a producer/engineer and will be running my sessions. We produce high quality projects so I can guarantee the quality will be there. He's also great at vocal comping etc.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, Bazzi, Post Malone
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Demos, top liners and co-writing are my specialty.
