Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
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. I’ve also spent years working on the business side of the music industry (since 2015) as a marketer, advertiser, manager and more for artists and groups (from underground artists <— my favorite, to household names and artists signed to every major label.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Ya know what…I think Ruston Kelly. He seems like a genuine dude who seems chill and writes honest lyrics.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
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.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
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.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
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.
Q: What's your typical work process?
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.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
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.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Johnny Cash, Chris Stapleton, Maverick City Music, Eddie James, UPPERROOM, Prescription Songs, Bad Nerves, IDLES, PUP
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
