Interview with Chuck the Show
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm especially proud of my single "Wipe Your Nose" that I produced, mixed, and wrote. I feel it was my most authentic song and I used a production techniques that I had not done before to create a unique sound.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm making beats every day and I'm currently working on releasing a techno inspired hip-hop project.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I worked on a song with Adam Kagan he was very easy to work with as an engineer.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital, it's what I learned and taught myself.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To communicate quickly and concisely about my progress and put my absolute all into the making the best song I possibly can.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Hearing all the indie music I get the privilege to work on. I could be helping create the next massive hit and that what motivates me every day.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Typically questions around price. I'll be straight forward about that there will be no confusion about or working arrangement.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I think it's probably the amount of time and effort I put into a given song or project. I put my everything into every song I've worked on both as an artist and a producer/engineer.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask them to tell me specific things they want from the song or project as well as how they want to be viewed as an artist. Ultimately the brand of the artist is equally important as making great music.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Tell me everything you possibly can about your art and your vision for your music. The more I know the better I can help.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, midi keyboard, headphones, mic, audio interface. All I'd need!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been making music for just over 2 years. I started out just rapping, then began singing/songwriting, and then taught myself how to mix/master and produce my own music and have been doing so for about a year.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I'd describe my style as quirky and alternative. Even though from a genre standpoint I work in hip-hop and pop I like to draw influence from jazz, EDM, rock, and country music.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: It would be a dream to work with Joey Bada$$. His music made me fall in love with hip-hop and music in general at a young age.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Know your influences but don't copy them. Use everything your influences taught you to create your own unique sound and voice.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Typically hip-hop and pop music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is my directional vision for a song. I think of songs on a macro level conceptually from a lyric standpoint as will as from an audio standpoint. The song itself is a product offering and I like to think about what this product is offering the consumer. What emotion or feeling is the consumer searching for? I try to bring that to life.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I always look to add or improve on an element that will make a song stand out from the generic expectations of the given genre.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For mixing I usually begin with fixing any harsh or outlandish sounds. From there I have a defined process of tuning each element to "fit" inside the mix. From there I either add my own personal flare to a mix or work with the artist to bring to life their vision in the mix. For production I begin my making a simple melody or using a specific sample/loop and build the song out from there. I like to have all of my melodic and bass elements in place before I add any drums. Once I have every audio layer included I then build out the structure of the song. I like to include beat and drum cut outs to add emphasis.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My audio set up consists up professional DAW (Logic Pro X) and Antares AutoTune plugin. I have one MIDI keyboard as well as a RODE NT1 Microphone hooked up with a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 audio interface.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: BROCKHAMPTON, 88GLAM, Joey Bada$$, Gus Dapperton, Still Woozy, IDK, Tyler, the Creator, Childish Gambino, Dua Lipa, Peach Tree Rascals, Kyle Dion, Frank Ocean, BENEE, Emotional Oranges.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do is beat making and mixing for up and coming hip-hop and pop artists in the Detroit area.
