Brandon is an absolute professional, extremely talented and has the attitude to deliver! He needed minimal direction and only a little input to come up with amazing vocal melodies, for both lead and backing. The lyrics match the vision perfectly. He went above and beyond and delivered plenty of additional material to pick from. Totally exceeded my expectations and I'm so excited working on finishing the song using his material, that will just lift the song to the next level. Thanks bro!
This was my first experience using a professional via SoundBetter and it has been a wonderful experience. Brandon is a talented singer! I know it is difficult to ask an artist who do excellent work, to do it better and Brandon did just that.
Brandon was patient, responded quickly and I felt that he did my track justice. The vocals were clean, harmony rich and most importantly, convey the emotional feel intended. I would love to work with Brandon again, which may be soon.
Thanks again Brandon!

Interview with Brandon Yancey
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: EN ROUTE! I flew to Canada to get that done. The only time I have been outside the country for music. I wrote the song and convinced my girlfriend to sing it ( it was pretty tough). She killed it and loved to after! Probably the proudest moment I've had as a writer thus far.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: EPs. I prefer to live my way into my own music. I love to have something more to say than just the typical.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Quincy. Once you find him, listen to his samples, and hire him, tell him I sent ya lol
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. They both have their place in this new world.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: We will create a product that we love. I welcome criticism. I welcome open dialogue about any thing that I write, sing, or choose melodically. The truth I am here to perform a service. I would rather you be satisfied with what you are paying for.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: It's all about money. I won't lie, it would be great to be in a situation where I get paid enough to support my family off of music. But I love to hear how people connected to the stories because I really put my all in these songs.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What story do you want to tell? How do you want the listener to feel?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Please hire someone that will desire the resonance of your music. Someone that will care enough about the little nuances of the project, that you can rest easy. I worry about the little things. I worry about what a listener can identify with that will keep them going back to our song.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Warm Audio Mic, Logic Pro X, and an Interface.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I am currently a waiter by day and a songwriter by night. I have been doing this "song" and dance for a little over 3 years. I discovered I had a talent for writing when I joined a group. We needed to start making songs for our singles and I had never really written for anyone before. One of my group members told me to try and write something that hit home and it ended with a beautiful song. I have been writing ever since.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Current. I listen to a lot of music. I love to see whats happening now but I also listen to a lot of what was so that I can see whats coming. I love to mix in some modern with a old feel.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Disruptors. They are ahead of the curve. You can learn a lot by watching someone be different.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: RnB, EDM, Hip-Hop. I think these best suit my skillset and are the requests I get the most.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I think melodies are my forte. I usually find the words to fit the melody.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I am beginning to put my home studio together. For now I work on Logic Pro X. Warm Audio Mic and Interface. Nothing too fancy just to get the job done.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Conversational therapy that turns into a meaningful and thoughtful song. If you can tell me what you want to talk about I can pick the words for you.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Awww man. Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway are my favorite. Michael Jackson is transcendent through time. A person I look to for the blueprint on trying to tell the forever story. Jay-Z for his art of wordplay. Biggie for his story telling. Tupac for an overall mindful message.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I listen to the track over and over until I can hum a melody and then I try to picture what mood this puts me in. Then I brainstorm a topic within that mood and fill in the verses, then the chorus.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Cadences are my specialty. I try to mesh my flow with the songs flow. Sometimes disruptive, sometimes easy going.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always be open to post production. It makes the song sound cohesive.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The result. It forms from nothing but can become something someone can’t live without. It’s fascinating to me.
