Interview with Barrett Jones

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

  2. A: Production, engineering, mixing, arranging, and musical collaboration.

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

  4. A: Drummers: John Bonham, Stewart Copland, Dave Grohl. Guitars: Andy Gill, Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page. Keys: Benmont Tench. Bass: Paul McCartney, John Paul Jones, Grahm Maybe. Producers: George Martin, Steve Lillywhite, Gill Norton.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I've owned and operated Laundry Room Studio since 1985. It started out as a 4 track 1/4" reel to reel studio and progressed over the years to 2" 24 track and then Protools. I'm now in my 10th location in a house in Seattle. laundryroomstudio.com

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

  8. A: A strong understanding of what works and what doesn't. I have always been able help make any song better then it was.

  9. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  10. A: My strongest skills are coming up with hooks, harmonies, and "ear candy" for songs. I also have very good strength in helping a band solidify their individual parts of a song.

  11. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  12. A: Punk, indie, rock, bands, music...

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: I like to capture the energy and essence of a band playing live, and will work to make the best recording possible within the talents of the musicians. I'm laid back and easy to get along with in the studio.

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

  16. A: I started playing in bands when I was 15, and soon after started to record myself with cassette players. I bought a 4 track Tascam tape machine in 1985 and officially opened my studio. I continue to play in bands and have been recording and producing music for 35 years.

  17. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  18. A: Use the "hi pass" filter! with the exception of bass, kick drum and maybe some keyboard sounds, there is no need for any frequencies below 200hz, and will just "muddy" up a mix.

  19. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  20. A: Both! I love analog and it sounds better, but once it's in the computer it stays there.
