As a musician & singer, I've opened for Leon Bridges, Nathaniel Rateliff, Houndmouth, Augustana, SUSTO, Hembree and many more. My music has been featured on several national podcasts and blogs. I love working on any compelling project!
Music: Solo musician living all over the country with 15 years of performing live & writing music. I love collaboration. I've sang my entire life and feel my unique voice can add a compelling characteristic to your track. I look forward to hearing your track!
Podcasts: I am best for cleanup! From my focus on vocals, I'm great at cleaning up podcast audio & bringing your voice to full potential. I'm hyper aware of how a voice should sound on podcasts. Audio clean-up can help substantially & I'll explain ahead of time what I'm able to fix or not fix. I have a film background, so podcast editing comes naturally as well. However, editing takes much more work depending on your vision, so the price will vary there.
I work in Logic Pro X with an SM7B and an Apollo Twin.

Interview with KENZI
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Russ - I feel like he's unstoppable in the studio. James Blake - he's elegant with his work. Otis Redding.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I had a folk-rock band for 5 years & did plenty of sing-songwriter work, but also love hip-hop and electronic work. I'm all over from John Prine to Kendrick & James Blake. I just love music with passion & feeling.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I specialize in adding emotion. I feel my voice has unique character that allows people to connect more deeply to a song.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Logic Pro X with an SM7B and Apollo Twin.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am great at adding in a chorus, but also incredible at ambient vocal layers if you just needs some vibes without words.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm producing constantly for my own music, but I really want to branch out to creating music for films - I love film so much & it would be a major accomplishment to be part of one.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Austin Leeds. Dude is so affordable, polite and will get your work done the fastest. Plus he isn't afraid the alter your mix & show you what instruments should shine.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Just express as fully as possible what you're looking for. I have to fully understand your vision in order to bring my piece.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, midi keyboard, guitar & enough to record vocals. I could live forever off that.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: My dream has just been to keep making music my life since I was 16. After years of performing I had to take a break & find myself in music again, but now I'm more active than ever.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: It's like... soulful folk with a slight country twang?
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always let it rest for a day - even when you're the most hyped you can wake up in the morning and immediately know what needs to be correct. I always give a rest day after I feel a track is done.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Adding emotion & being great to work with.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically I'll ask more about what you're looking for, i.e. what energy, what's the purpose and feeling of the project - I want to pin down the emotion first. Next I'll start workshopping melodies until I feel I have a good hook. Then it's adding on harmonies & making sure the track catches ears.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Andrew Bird, Otis Redding, Russ, James Blake - anyone who completely dives into their craft.
