Interview with Teddy Rycroft

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Whatever sounds GOOD. Whatever setup and situation allows for the greatest flow of ideas, ease of creation, and harmony of collaboration.

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

  4. A: Learn every single keyboard shortcut

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

  6. A: A rich understanding of poetry, lyricism, and innovative line crafting. Each verse, each chorus, each line, word; they’re all areas to infuse the song with one’s own voice, style, and persona. The same goes for melody. I have a deep understanding and feel for melody, what’s trending, what sounds good (not always the same), and am always looking for ways to create. When you speak from a deep part of yourself innovation is always the result.
