    Paul is a top notch guitar player and his professionalism is unparalleled. He is committed to finding, and recording, the best parts for the song he is working on. He is receptive to feedback and his turnaround time is astounding. His tracks always sound incredible, and only require you to simply drag them into your session. If you are looking for guitar work with amazing tone, great time and a seamless workflow - Paul is your guy.

    Paul is an incredible musician who is reliable and a pleasure to work with!
    I hired Paul to play electric guitar for a rehearsal and local show here in LA. He also charted several of the songs in my setlist for the band. He was timely, fully prepared, and came to rehearsal with thoughtful ideas and was receptive to any feedback. Also, the guitar tracks I've heard him record for projects I've been involved with sound TOP notch.
    If you want clean, accurate charts and tasty guitars, I highly recommend him for all of your music needs - from live gigs, to studio tracks, to song charts! :)

Interview with Paul Edelman Music

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

  2. A: I typically perform remote recordings of Electric/Acoustic Guitars and Electric Bass. You can send me an mp3 or your song or an entire Logic X or Pro Tools session for me to work in. I will record the parts and bounce them out to you dry and/or wet depending on your choosing.

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

  4. A: I really look up to studio guys like Tim Pierce, Pete Thorn, and others who have been able to better tracks with unique and high quality recording.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: My studio setup is perfect for guitars or bass. I run either Pro Tools or Logic and have a Universal Audio Apollo Twin with many of the UA plugins. I typically mic up electric guitars with a Sure SM57 and a Royer 121. I've got a Fender Twin and a Vox AC15 which are usually what people want.

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

  8. A: I typically ask that clients send the track and any reference tracks they want their project to sound like. That way I have a general direction of where to start. Once I send tracks back, I always stay in contact with the client to make sure they are 100% happy. I am happy to do revisions (within reason) to make sure you get exactly what you want.

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

  10. A: Many types of music! I typically work on Pop and Singer/Songwriter stuff, but do a lot of RnB, Hip Hop, Soul, Funk, and Jazz.

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

  12. A: Listen to your part in the mix! So often people come up with cool, creative, but busy parts that sound great alone but don't really fit in with the song.

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

  14. A: Oh man! Stevie Wonder because I really love all of his music and there's a good combination of rhythm and lead playing. I don't think I'd ever get bored with him.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: Soulful pop with some jazz influence.

  17. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  18. A: My laptop, Apollo Twin, Fender Strat, Gibson ES 335, and Fender P Bass

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

  20. A: Try to hire someone you are comfortable communicating with. Don't hire someone with an ego, make sure they are ok with recording what YOU want and making YOUR vision come to life. Not someone who thinks whatever they play is a gift from above.

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

  22. A: I like that I can work from my own studio that I built up and that I get to play on different styles of music. It's like being an actor in different roles on a daily basis.

  23. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  24. A: That you will get what YOU want on your record.

  25. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  26. A: Both. Analog is great, but anyone who has dealt with it knows there are struggles with keeping the gear functioning. Digital has gotten so good these days that I feel like I can use analog gear on the go with digital emulations.

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

  28. A: Lennon Leppert, Jared Atol, and myself!

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

  30. A: Currently I'm working on a bunch of different tracks with different producers and artists. Lot's of guitar solos and acoustic tracks for pop projects and commercials. Also bass on just about everything.

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