Interview with TonyBoi
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Sorry don't know anyone on here.
Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
This track called Lil Bit I wrote, produced, mixed, and arranged by myself.
What are you working on at the moment?
Turning to finish up this 5 track EP due out this September.
Analog or digital and why?
Analog because I love to actually push the buttons and turn the knobs when mixing or producing.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
That you will get what you ask for.
What do you like most about your job?
That I'm able to do what I love to do.
What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
How much do I charge? I tell them it depends.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
That all I do is play music all day. They don't realize I'm analyzing the music.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
What do you want your idea to sound like? Are you willing to let me help you with your project?
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
I would tell them to look for a hardworker and someone who would help you with your idea.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A laptop, a midi keyboard, some headphones, a daw software, and speakers and I'm set.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I didn't think I would make it in the business industry when I was younger. It wasn't until I started excelling at it is when I took it seriously. I've been doing this for about 6 years now.
How would you describe your style?
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
On a national level it has to be Justin Timberlake because he knows how to be himself with his music. Now locally I would honestly love to work with a group called God's Chosen because they are family and I've always looked up to them.
Can you share one music production tip?
Yeah be yourself. Don't try to sound like anyone else.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I work on Pop, Rock, Hip-Hop, Gospel, and R&B.
What's your strongest skill?
My strongest skill is my ability of being original.
What do you bring to a song?
I bring my unique style and preference to a song. I live outside the box musically so I'll add different sounds to a track.
What's your typical work process?
I just basically come up with a concept or idea and work around that.
Tell us about your studio setup.
Since I'm always on the move I just have my laptop, my midi keyboard, and my headphones.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I really look up to Timbaland as a producer but all my mentors are local guys like Aaron Neager, Matt Curry, and Leon Price.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
The most common work I do is live sound and mixing.
