Interview with Boh Doran
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Kimera Morrell, another amazing vocalist!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will do my absolute best, I am professional and will really marinate in your vision while working.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: "Hello Goodbye" Beatles cover for the Mercari Super Bowl spot. I was the vocalist and it was a super fun project because the entire thing was just vocals and drums. We did about 8 revisions and got to try a bunch of different arrangements.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My full length record and a smattering of other co-writes
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I say both have their place, you can't beat vintage gear and tape recordings but everything these days ends up meeting the digital world. Whether it ends up being mixed digitally, listed to digitally... Also digital gear doesn't break as much! :)
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Working out of my home studio, and being surrounded by music.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: What key do I want to sing in. I usually try and see what works the best for the song!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: how many takes do you want, what kind of energy, what are your references, what is the tempo, etc
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Try to be clear about what you are looking for as far as references, but also know each person has their own uniqueness and you should be very attracted to that in and of itself.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Mellotron micro, taylor acoustic, tele electric, roland tr8 drum machine, moog sub37. If I got a 6th I'd bring a juno 60.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I began singing at 5 and playing piano in the 6th grade. In college I started writing and joined bands (in Washington DC) and performed at clubs such as the Black Cat and Rock and Roll Hotel. Shortly after getting my BA, one of my projects was signed to an indie label and I moved to Brooklyn. After a handful of years performing and making music n NY I moved to LA to pursue a solo career. My first single debuted on Spotify’s New Music Friday and hit viral #7 song. I then got more experience as a session singer & top liner, and went to school to learn how to produce and record myself. LA life has been a smattering of film/tv work, writing sessions and live gigs.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Dreamy, intimate, ethereal, ear worms
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would like to work with Butch Vig because he is responsible for the best of 90s alternative music, and he is also from the midwest (like me).
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: find one really unique interesting sound to start with, and let that guide you.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: indie rock, pop, dream pop, bedroom pop, alternative, r&b
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Staying at it until I find what is interesting / "right"
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring presence. I pay attention to what the words mean, the feeling of the music and I get inside of it completely.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: As far as vocals, I usually play what I am working with a bit to learn it before I jump in. After I feel like I get the material I jump in and record 7 - 10 passes. Then I comp together 3 options for the lead, after which I do any doubles//BGVS. For production and writing I usually make a track, then write the melody followed by the lyrics.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Right now I am rocking a minimalist set up as I have had to be mobile in the past. I have an Apogee duet, a blue microphone and I usually record in Ableton.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: A wide array actually! For contemporary pop I like what Sia, Lana del Rey and Dua Lipa are doing. I spend a lot of time listening to 80s new wave and 90s alternative music as well (New Order, Alanis Morissette, Third Eye Blind, The Cranberries).
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: It's basically split between writing/singing work for film & TV and writing/producing for my artist project.
