What's your 'promise' to your clients?
You will have a sound that is unique but also in the pocket for what is current and popular today.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
More so what their vision of the record is. What brought them to my page. and how can we bridge the gap to give them the best quality sound.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
If you're looking for a quality sound and a unique approach then I'm your guy.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I've played violin over 20 years and started producing in 2010.
How would you describe your style?
It's very hard to define. But all in all I would term it as "Cinematic Simplicity".
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Sara Bareilles, Alicia Keys, Drake, Thom Yorke. I've been influenced by them all. They're all unique and I have a bit of them in my music.
Can you share one music production tip?
Make sure your drums knock. And also view yourself as the one who paints the canvas. The artist paints the picture.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Aside from my artistry (through my group October's Child) I do a lot of pop, pop/soul, chillwave, hip/hop and r&b.
What's your strongest skill?
Strongest skill would be building soundscapes. The soundscape takes you on a journey.
What do you bring to a song?
I bring a unique cinematic ear to tracks. I love making things epic as music should impact you! Or at the very least you should feel moved.
What's your typical work process?
I typically like to build from scratches. I take a more so minimal approach and then fully produce the track out once the frame is built.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Jean Luc Ponty, Kanye West, Pharrell, Thom Yorke
