  3. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  4. A: The biggest project I've done was a record deal with a dance label that got us CD's and vinyl pressed, a review and release of the single in Billboard magazine.

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

  6. A: I am always working on instrumental tracks, if I can't get lyrics/melody for them then I get them licensed as is.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: I love analog but it's so expensive to maintain (I have a reel to reel). Digital allows for so much more flexibility and tools to create with.

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

  10. A: I'll finish it right or you can take what you brought to the song and find someone they're happier working with.

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

  12. A: Creating something new, it's personal and comes from me/us, no one else.

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: Artists want the producer to make the connection/record deal and that was a long time ago in a different industry. The music industry is more difficult to get into now, and pays way less than what it used to.

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  16. A: What are they looking to accomplish? How do they plan to use the music(sell it on itunes/online, make cds to sell at performances)? How would they plan to make it?

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

  18. A: Do your homework, listen to the finished product. I've know countless singers to get involved with a producer and get nothing accomplished or what they get is garbage.

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

  20. A: I've done this for a while, chased the pop stars only to get let down. License my music and hope that thru the exposure it'll take me/us to a higher level.

  21. Q: How would you describe your style?

  22. A: Mainstream electronic pop, if it can't sell or sound like it can then it most likely won't go anywhere.

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

  24. A: Ricky Martin, I hear he's grounded and I think we could work out some great tracks.

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

  26. A: Compression, learn it, it makes a great difference when used correctly.

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

  28. A: Mainstream pop, I'd work on rock but would need to rely on professional musicians to complete the project.

  29. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  30. A: music arrangement

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

  32. A: The music, arrangement production and polishing it off to a finished product.

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

  34. A: I generally have the music track ready and give it to the singer so that they can write lyrics and melody, involving them in the creative/writing process and including them in on the songwriters shares.

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

  36. A: I love the guitar, sax and violin even though they're very rarely used in pop music (unless it's pop rock).

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

  38. A: Arrangement of music, production and mixdown to the final product.
