    Taylor has an excellent voice and did a very good job singing the song and making adjustments as needed. Would definitely work with again.

    Taylor was easy to work with. She is a creator herself and she understood what i was aiming for.

    Taylor did a perfect vocal first time out. Perfect pitch, and great interpretation. I hope she will be available to do some more songs in the future. She also completed it in record time, and was so great to work with.

Interview with Lory (Taylor) Ford

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

  2. A: Finishing my sophomore album with my band and preparing for lots of touring with Odie Leigh playing guitar!

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

  4. A: Analog delay, my 80s Aria SG, a vintage Ampeg amp, a fully analog synth, and a good pair of headphones

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

  6. A: I've been participating in projects, supplying background vocals, production ideas, and writing since freshman year of college (2014), and have worked on many collaborations since I've been living in Nashville (2018)

  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: Creative, flexible, and intuitive

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

  10. A: Nick Sanborn (of Sylvan Esso and Made of Oak). I’ve never felt more inspired than when I’ve been able to witness his performance and I would love to just be a fly on the wall in his studio when he’s at work on new music.

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

  12. A: I typically will sit with the song and sort of mediate on it before getting to work on a track. After sending the first draft, 3 edits are included in the price we agree on for the project. I’m not happy with it until you are!

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

  14. A: Vibrant vocal harmonies, vocals rooted in healthy vocal technique with a modern indie fluorescence

  15. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  16. A: Probably my current project, just because it's the first project I've fully produced on my own, which has been so liberating and I've been able to grow in ways I never thought possible.

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

  18. A: Not yet!

  19. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  20. A: Analog. It just feels different. I feel like that's a no-brainer for a lot of people.

  21. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  22. A: To do my job the best I possibly can - no short cuts, and revise it until it's absolutely the sound that they dreamed of.

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

  24. A: Getting to be in the room with other creatives

  25. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  26. A: "How long have you been singing?" Answer: My whole life. I literally can't recall a time in my life when I wasn't in love with singing and music. "Is this pitch-corrected?" Answer: nope

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

  28. A: Not sure that there are any misconceptions... yet!

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

  30. A: What artist would you compare the sound you're trying to achieve to?

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

  32. A: Go with your gut

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

  34. A: Stay focused, but give your ears a break when they need it

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

  36. A: Indie pop, indie rock, folk, americana/folk

  37. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  38. A: Pitch memory

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: Scarlett Solo with access to various mics

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