  12. A: Creative outlet!

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

  16. A: That people who have lots of Instagram followers or a recognizable name are somehow better that other people or have more love, joy, peace, etc.

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

  20. A: Just hit me up. I’m a friendly and easy-going person.

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

  22. A: A Bible, an acoustic guitar, a knife, a fishing pole and a satellite phone. Assuming I’m not recording music music while I’m there?

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

  24. A: I’m currently 33yo and have been in bands since I was 14, but have been making music as a career since I was around 19.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  28. A: Ya know what…I think Ruston Kelly. He seems like a genuine dude who seems chill and writes honest lyrics.

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

  30. A: For vocal recording, be sure the singer has a good vocal chain and likes the way they sound in their ears. You’ll get a better performance that way.

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

  32. A: A variety. As a songwriter, I’m more interested in a song that makes me feel something than I am in genre. I’ve been in rock/southern rock/pop-punk/punk bands since I was 14 (I’m currently 33) but I’ve been a worship leader in church, I’ve got a music degree in commercial voice from Belmont University and I’m originally from Arkansas so I love folk, bluegrass and country. That said, my older cousins exposed me to tons of hip-hop and R&B when I was a kid, so I’ve worked on a fair amount of both of those genres over the years in both writing and recording sessions. There’s nothing worse than a bad pop song, but it’s hard to beat a great one. Most of my singing these days is in the genres of Christian and Gospel because I love to worship Jesus.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: Songwriting/Singing

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

  36. A: When writing: Heart, honesty, a story, lyrics, melodies/harmonies, GROOVE, cultural relevance. When recording: A recorded piece of music that you want to listen to in your car with the windows down.

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

  38. A: I work on music full time from home and I love to do it, so that’s what I spend a lot of my time doing, day and night.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I recently moved to Nashville and I’ve got a music studio in my house where I have songwriting sessions and produce music, usually tracking midi instruments, guitar, keys and vocals. I also teach songwriting lessons, vocal lessons, guitar lessons and piano lessons.

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

  42. A: Johnny Cash, Chris Stapleton, Maverick City Music, Eddie James, UPPERROOM, Prescription Songs, Bad Nerves, IDLES, PUP

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

  44. A: Songwriting, Top-lines, Vocals (demo and final, harmonies, ad-libs, etc), Songwriting lessons, rhythm guitar tracks, piano tracks.
