Interview with PATH P

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

  2. A: I executive produce all my projects, from beat selection to feature selection to walking through the full mixing mastering process through to the final production with the engineer. But I have to say just one of my proudest projects would have to be my most recent album release, "Revolution & Legacy, Vol. II: The Legacy." I just feel like it was probably my most personal and also my most lyrically courageous project yet. I wrote all the lyrics (except for other rap features) even for the vocalist performances, as well.

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

  4. A: Lots more beat production and getting into engineering, so I'm working on pushing out lots of music to share with folks worldwide, regularly.

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

  6. A: That I truly care about creating a great product and delivering at my best! I'm really down to talk it out and be in tune with the vision to be more than a collaborator but to be a fan/supporter as well.

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

  8. A: That I only make "conscious" sounding music over old school samples, LOL. I run the gamut and am up for the challenge folks! If I remotely sound like I do it, I probably do, I'm a lover of music and passionate about making great art, no matter the genre (I may suck at death metal though, haha).

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

  10. A: I like solid asks, dates, expectations, all the details up front, so I greatly appreciate when folks have that info ready. Gimme the deets off top!

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

  12. A: Beats Studio3 Headphones, my macbook pro, my Akai MPK Mini, Scarlett 2i2 interface, and AKGP220 ... provided an outlet is magically available, hahaha.

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

  14. A: I've been writing and performing music for almost 9 years now. I started writing with producer friends in 2011, then started performing on stages across NYC in 2012 and have been evolving ever since. I've worked mostly with local producers who are good friends of mine now, and have been performing with a bunch of artists from across NY, DC, Texas and other states.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: Soulful, uplifting, thought-provoking, eclectic.

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

  18. A: Timbaland, Lupe Fiasco, Black Thought, Kid Cudi, Kendrick Lamar, Dan Reynolds (Imagine Dragons), Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic), Jill Scott, to name a few.

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

  20. A: Have fun with it and don't be afraid to experiment with sound and break molds.

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

  22. A: Most of my career has been Hip Hop, with a bit of infusion of soul/R&B. My more recent works are leaning more towards alternative and pop, genres I also enjoy just as deeply.

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: Songwriting is the consensus I've gotten from fellow artists and producers.

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

  26. A: I'm passionate about substantial content and lyrical quality, complex yet fun & thoughtful wordplay so I do my best to bring those traits to every song I'm on, whether it's my own or featuring with other artists. Words matter & I believe they hold great power so what comes out in the song is important and I try not to waste one lyric.

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

  28. A: My inspiration tends to come at a moments notice and usually starts with the lyrics. They come to me in bits so I'll write them down in notes on my phone; I could have the hook first, or it could be what sounds like a possible 2nd verse first and build from there, it all depends on how it makes sense in my head, haha. Depending on how inspired I am by the beat and/or concept - if presented to me by another artist for a feature or songwriting - I can finish writing sometimes in as quickly as 15 min, a half hour, maybe an hour. From there once the full song is solidified in writing, I book the studio time and try to get at minimum that song recorded ideally to completion, or I may record a few songs per session (usually 3-4 hours) if I'm working on an album and depending on the complexity of the song. I usually insure I've memorized the song first & have it as tight as possible before getting in the studio so I can lock it down in as little takes as possible, if not just one.

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

  30. A: Lupe Fiasco, Black Thought, Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, Rakim, Sevendust, Mos Def, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Maxwell, Timbaland

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

  32. A: Feature verses and songwriting support.
