Interview with The Blacktop Heroes

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

  2. A: What it means to be a producer, because people all do it so differently it can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people.

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

  4. A: A computer, some speakers, a LDC Condensor, An Apollo Interface, and some snacks.

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

  6. A: We've been working in music now for for a combined 15 years starting as gigging musicians and slowly moving our way over towards producing and songwriting. Weve been working together as a team for a bit over a year now.

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

  8. A: Vocal is king. Thats it!

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

  10. A: Pop Music and Singer Songwriter stuff

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

  12. A: Modern pop taste. We love and live modern pop music. We try to keep things youthful and inventive with respect to the music we grew up on.

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

  14. A: Once the song is finished we like to cut a great vocal and get it in place where it can drive the bus. Most people really only hear a vocal, so its the most important part and the thing we like to highlight. Then we work out whats supposed to be going on in the rest of the song bit by bit.

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

  20. A: A lot of taking a song idea or part of a song and helping move it to a finished product for an artist.
