Interview with Hollow

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

  2. A: For mixing and mastering please try your hardest to find a reference. Even one song that you like the sound of can be enough for an engineer to get an idea of what you are going for.

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

  4. A: I am currently mixing and mastering music for a band called Opal and releasing my debut album under my solo project.

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

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

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital, but only because I can't afford analog yet.

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

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

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

  12. A: Who their inspirations are, and what songs they like from those artists. I want 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.

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

  14. 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(?)

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

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

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

  18. A: Nothing, Nowhere. or Bring Me The Horizon 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.

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

  20. 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.

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

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

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

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

  25. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  26. A: 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. Various microphones for different uses with the Rode K2 being my go-to mic for vocals.

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

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

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

  30. A: Instrumental production, songwriting, mixing and mastering.
