    Working with Stephen has been amazing from the very beginning. The musicality, beauty, and production quality that Stephen brings is far beyond what I could have achieved on my own, and yet he does a great job keeping (and augmenting!) the original spirit of the music. Stephen is talented, professional, and a pro at timely communication. I already am planning to work with him right away on another piece.

    Once again Stephen nailed it! A true professional with killer vocal chops. If you want seemless integration then Stephen's the man. He's so easy to work with. And delivers in a timely fashion with updates and progress reports. I highly recommend him.

    Google says that there are 5.23k really good singers on planet Earth. This may or may not be true depending on your own definition. No matter how many there are, I choose to have Stephen record my songs! He is a master of the craft. There is no one better!
    Thank you Stephen for the many years of outstanding quality!

Interview with Stephen Sims

  1. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  2. A: My strongest two skills are production and vocals. I have been a vocalist for many years now and I pride myself on knowing how to deliver the vocal you are after. I know the time needed to create commercially viable recordings and to achieve it. This has come from years of working with top vocal coaches and with producers in studios globally.

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

  4. A: I bring my creative inspiration, talent and versatility. Every vocalist and producer has their own unique vision. I would say I can bring an honesty and truth to pieces. I like to create music that really speaks to people in different ways regardless of genre.

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

  6. A: I like to start with finding out exactly what the client wants with the project. I can then see how we can both move forward. Before any full production stage, I like to take the piece back to scratch and find out what I need to bring to it. This differs with each project but I like to update my client as I go. I think its good to see a natural, progressive workflow.

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

  8. A: With my TV/film pieces I am extremely inspired by Hans Zimmer, who I believe is a genius of sound design and instrumentation. Melodically I am a huge fan of Danny Elfman, I also have a love for his smaller orchestral arrangements. For contemporary music, I am inspired by Ryan Tedder, George Michael, Depeche Mode, Hurts, Pet Shop Boys and Elton John. I like melody and soul within music & if that can be married with a great production - I want to get on board.

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

  10. A: I've been lucky to have varied work. From session work at high-level quick turnarounds; collaborating on tracks as a featured vocalist - writing the top-line, lyrics; composing for Tv, Film & Game and producing artists E.P. It's always been different. Which I think is musically and technically good for any musician/producer. I think it also shows my artistry, professionalism and versatility well.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: I have a small but well-equipped studio set up. I also use a local studio for further detailed mixing/mastering. I use a Neumann TLM 102, WA -87, a Se 4400a all into an ISA-ONE Focusrite Pre-amp. Logic PRO X is my main DAW. I have all of the latest top quality VST'S including Orchestral Tools - Spitfire Audio - Cinestrings - EWQL - WAVES - Spectrasonics and more. The studio is well equipped for what I need to execute big projects.
