Interview with Just Keith
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I work with a lot of upcoming artist, most that I meet either from events or shows that I put on and really enjoy my music. I tend to do the songwriting aspect and bring their ideas to life an really help formulate a great record.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Ne-Yo, Maxwell, Miguel are some of my biggest inspirations. My inspiration tend to change as time goes on, as of late my biggest inspirations have been 6lack and Khalid.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical work process varies but the base of it is usually sitting down with my producer and creating a vibe, reading what each other is into and organically build from there.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I definitely bring the R&B/Soul vibes to a song. I like to give it that smoothness of the 90's but also keeping it fresh and current to what we have in today's music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I would have to say my strongest skill is storytelling and creating a plot within the record. I like for my audience to feel what I'm saying and get them in a particular mood.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I mainly work with R&B/ Pop records, have a lot of experience with making top line records and playing with ideas for top 40 hits. I also dabble with hip hop records as well.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with Ryan Leslie, his production is immaculate and was definitely one of my biggest inspirations as an up and coming singer/songwriter.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is definitely rooted by R&B but I definitely have my touch of new school, if you like smooth records you would definitely love my music.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Before music I wanted to become a sportscaster, definitely knowledgeable when it comes to that field as well but I have been singing for 12 years and been songwriting for another 10 years.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: If you are looking for someone who can take a and idea and make a beautiful story out of it, if you're looking for someone who can really get a song to pop and make people catch a vibe, if you're looking for someone who has patience and really will take the time to give you a grade A product then I am the person for you.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is your inspiration? What direction are looking to head towards? Is there a bigger project? Where do you think you lack when making a record and how are you looking for me to help?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Biggest misconception is how long a good record can take, people think that it just magically pops in your head but it's the collaboration or taking a step back to really figure out what needs to be said and how it needs to sound in order to really make a great product.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Where do you get your story lines from? has to be one of the most commonly asked questions. The way I respond to that is, "Life". Realizing what is around me and what myself or other people go through really gives me the inspiration to make a great story out of every record I put out.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love the grind, I love the process of making something new and exciting every time I'm in the studio. I like touching someone's soul with my words and help make their day better.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise to my clients is to give them the best possible product in a timely fashion and not only give them a Grade A product but also provide a learning experience for them to get better with their craft and aspirations.
