A: To become a professional touring musician and Producer. I have been doing this for over twenty years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: “Seth Jeremy has such an eclectic music mind. His creative approach is raw and UN-orthodox, yet refreshingly simplistic. Seth is a pure artist and has a incredibly-open, objective ear. He is open to all types of music, which gives him a deep gene-pool to draw from. I see SJ only growing as an artist as time goes on (Darryl Swann, Grammy producer).
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: So many but probably someone like Beck, or The Postal Service, or a hidden gem local artist that is willing to be molded and take chances.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: That the vocal performance is the most important, that the emotion is there, that it's polished enough but not too polished. Sometimes in our decade the imperfections are missing and that's sometimes the best part because that's where the emotion lies.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I've worked on all genres there's nothing that's off limits
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Caring about the product, song and quality of my work whether that's as simple as a couple chords or a crazy synth part to how a vocal sits in a mix.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring an emotional approach to each song, treating each one like it's a baby that's being shared and being taken care of. Meaning I wonder what the song needs and what it doesn't need. Does the country song really need to have electronic drums?(sarcasm induced) or maybe it does..... At the end of the day the writing/structure/song message of a song is the most important aspect and with that it will make any production or re-mix shine.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Each work process is different whether it's working on ADR, or vocal tuning, editing, vocal coaching, producing, writing horn parts, recording piano, finding drops for a hip-hop song. I tailor each session to the needs of the clients goals and what needs to be done
