Interview with Blake Pfeil | Songwriter

Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
I played keys on a track for the YoungArts Foundation -- it was a blast to collaborate on as a band member. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXugq-0Y-FA
What are you working on at the moment?
I'm currently developing a folk/rock musical adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA called SAIL.
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Rachel Gavaletz
Analog or digital and why?
Oooooo..... favorite question of this whole thing. Depends on what style you're going for and what you want. Generally analog, but for electronic music I'd definitely say digital... or if you're trying to save money, digital.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I will write a song that you want to sing every day.
What do you like most about your job?
I can't believe that I get to share my soul with people and help them understand theirs with music. It's a privilege.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Just be honest, concise, and straight-forward. I love musicians who know exactly what they want.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
notebook, pen, snacks, pillow, tape recorder
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
It's always to be half a songwriter, the other half an actor. I've been working professionally for over ten years now.
How would you describe your style?
Pop-infused folk with a theatrical influence.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Sara Bareilles. I want to write with her. I think she and I could bounce major ideas and progressions off one another.
Can you share one music production tip?
I always meditate before I write.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Pop, folk, rock, musical theatre
What's your strongest skill?
Melodies, specifically memorable licks.
What do you bring to a song?
It's a direct mixture of head and heart. I write with a pop sensibility and a lyric wit.
What's your typical work process?
It changes song to song. I ask that I'm given information on the song that needs to be written, and I go from there.
Tell us about your studio setup.
It's a small studio setup in Brooklyn where I do demo recording. Straight-forward tracks to sell to musicians for their various needs.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Jamie Cullum, Gavin DeGraw, Ben Folds, Sara Bareilles, Sia, Grace Potter
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I write songs for singers and bands to record. Pop, folk, and rock mostly.
