Hollow

Producer & Songwriter

Hollow on SoundBetter

Producer and songwriter with a dark approach to modern popular music.

I’m a songwriter and producer with a love for all kinds of music but most specifically anything with a hint of emo/punk energy to it.

I write/record/mix for vocals, guitar and drums, as well as having much experience in sound design and programming from a history with electronic music.

Having worked with pop punk, metal, pop, hip hop/trap, edm and acoustic styles of music I have experience and an archive of skills useful for any project.

Interview with Hollow

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

  2. A: I am currently working on an EP for my personal project.

  3. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  4. A: Midoca, he is a fantastic songwriter/producer.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: I think this might be cheating, but a hybrid of both if ever possible.

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

  8. A: Being able to collaborate with other artists and combine our visions to create something that they can be proud to perform.

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

  10. A: Who their inspirations are, what songs they like from those artists. I like to get a feel for where my clients are coming from stylistically so I can go into the project from their creative point of view instead of imposing my own on them.

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

  12. A: My Gretsch G5260 baritone guitar (essential for the Hollow sound), Rode K2, Genelec monitors, any audio interface and I guess a laptop with a DAW on it(?)

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: Pop music with inspiration from emo, punk, metalcore and other styles of guitar based music.

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

  16. A: Nothing, Nowhere. or KennyHoopla since I feel they really come from the same mindset as myself. Or adversely I would love to work with Holly Humberstone to write something darker for her that she hasn't explored yet.

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

  18. A: Record guitar DIs as hot as possible without clipping. The signal that enters a real amplifier is always very loud and you should try your best to emulate this even with amp sims.

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

  20. A: Alt-pop music with darker inspiration.

  21. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  22. A: Songwriting and doing so quickly. Many of the songs I've worked on have been fleshed out within the hour they were started.

  23. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  24. A: Simple scarlett interface, genelec monitors and custom built PC running Ableton, Pro Tools and Reaper. Multiple guitars for choice of style and tone, as well as a bass guitar. Multiple microphones for different uses with the Rode K2 being my go to mic for vocals.

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

  26. A: Nothing, Nowhere., George Lever, Jordan Fish, Killstation, Trent Reznor, Travis Barker, KennyHoopla, Andrew Watt, Whethan

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