    My first time with Michael. And not my last !!!
    As a producer you usually have a rough idea of how you want the vocal to be. Well, Michael tried a different direction that was amazing. He truly interpreted the song beautifully.

    Michael was a pleasure to work with. He is clearly a fantastic metal singer, and I challenged him by having him record vocals for progressive ballad for an album I'm recording, which requires a very wide range and starts out much softer than other tracks I'm working on. He really stepped up to the challenge and produced a great track. He followed my instructions perfectly. Michael is a true professional!

Interview with Michael Gildner

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: I'm working on my first singer/songwriter publication.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Hannah Montana said it best: "It's the best of both worlds!"

  5. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  6. A: -How many vocal tracks do you want(lead, backings, ad-libs)? -Do I also topline for your project? -Can you provide a guide track with vocals and one without vocals in sync to the tempo of the song? -Do you have preferred method in data-delivery?

  7. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  8. A: Be vocal. Tell me from the get-go what you want. Communication is the most important thing I will gladly answer you in great detail =)

  9. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  10. A: I'm doing this for over 14 years now and started 2014 to work professional for studios and producers.

  11. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  12. A: Myles Kennedy. Always dream big!

  13. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  14. A: I do vocals in different varieties: lead vocals, backings, ad-libs, spoken word.

  15. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  16. A: Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge is a big inspiration for me. A great singer and musician overall. In producing it's Chris Lord-Alge and Dave Pensado. Two incredible creative professionals.

  17. Q: What's your typical work process?

  18. A: I record multiple vocal tracks including doubles, backings and ad-libs. Afterwards I edit everything, clean up all tracks and deliver everything through an archive-file.

  19. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  27. Q: How would you describe your style?

  29. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  30. A: The creativity and challenges that come with it. I love working on different kinds of songs, because every songwriter works different and if I can add my creative input to that it is the most amazing feeling!

  31. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  32. A: Santo Clemenzi. I provided lead vocals for his project OUTERBURST. He writes everything and does a great job producing. He is amazing!
