Interview with The White Leaf Music Company

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

  2. A: It depends on the client, but I do like to hear what you're working on and how you feel about your journey so far.

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

  4. A: It's always changing, but I finished a mix and master for a Grammy Nominated songwriter and another master for a writer with a recent #1 on Billboard.

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

  6. A: Listen to the work. Go from there.

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

  8. A: That I'll always do the right thing.

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

  10. A: That it's a party all the time, when it's more like working in a doctor's office. It's quiet and people who come in excited lose patience and eventually just come back when the session is over. Watching someone mix or master is only fun if you do it also lol.

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

  12. A: Timbaland. Simply put, we are both crazy and something dope would happen.

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

  14. A: Let the music lead the process! You're really just there to be a channel for these inspirations floating around.

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

  16. A: Modern Music, but my portfolio ranges from K-Pop, Metal, Big Bands, and R&B.

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

  18. A: Mickey Shiloh.

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

  20. A: Helping.

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

  22. A: 5 cell phones so I could get back to my studio.

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

  24. A: Jimmy Douglass is my favorite engineer for the work he completed in the late 90's with Ginuwine and Aaliyah. He squeezes out so much emotion from the records he mixes. I appreciate Timbaland's uniqueness also.

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

  26. A: I listen to the record and imagine how the sound can be improved, if at all, and then I make those changes.

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

  28. A: "Did you do this?" "Yes"
