    Working with Ryan was great! I mixed a cover song for him, and dang if it isn't stuck in my head permanently now...but that's a good thing, because it's a really catchy song, and a great vocal performance by Ryan. Excellent client!

Interview with Rkham

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

  2. A: Yes there is! I still actively work with them to this day. I'd be happy to share their accounts with whomever asks

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

  4. A: I promise Quality. I promise Dedication. I promise Understanding.

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

  6. A: I get to do what I love doing! Not a lot of people can say that they are doing exactly what they want to do!

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

  8. A: Where do I find Instrumentals, or Producers? How did you grow your following? & How do I get my Music on Platforms? 1. Sites such as Beat Stars, Fiverr, and SoundBetter are the best tools for finding Beats and Producers in my opinion. If you're not able to network a lot in person to find people, those are invaluable. 2. Networking with People, whether on Social Media or in Person. Proper Social Media Ads. Playlists. Creating Quality Content. And picking a few Platforms to do well on, and not spreading myself too thin. Oh, and do your homework on different marketing avenues!! Lots of scams! 3. I recommend DistroKid, but find a Distributor that gets your music on the big platforms.

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

  10. A: That it's easy! A lot of people can sing. A lot of people can Rap. A lot of People can Entertain. A lot of people can Market Themselves. Very few can do it all! That's why I ask Musicians what do they want out of Music, because yes, the Music is the Life Blood of an Artist, but it's such a small portion of everything that goes into being a successful one, depending on your definition of successful of course! You have to be mentally prepared for so many avenues of different things.

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

  12. A: What do they want this song or project to accomplish. I like to see where an Artist is at with themselves and their Vision for their Music. Seeing if they know what they want, or if it's more of a casual hobby. Now there is nothing wrong with Music as a hobby. Music is one of the World's best Remedies. I just like someone who combines their Talent with Drive. That's when I see the best products!

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

  14. A: Find someone who shares a true passion for your song, and in their pitch, goes in depth in to your song, not just a "Love the song! Let's Work", but a "Hey man! Really enjoyed your song. I especially liked the part at (insert time stamp here) where you said (insert lyrics here), I think I could really (insert production or vocal specific improvement here). Just that bit of extra analysis goes a long way and can put you more at ease paying good money for someone.

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

  16. A: I would definitely take a Mic, iMac (with Software of course), Audio Interface, Headphones, and a phone used solely for finding Instrumentals and noting Lyrics.

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

  18. A: So Music was never in the cards for me. I only began my journey through Music a few years ago, back in 2018. I needed an Outlet, an Escape. A "Home" if you will. And Music gave me that Home. So I've been working Independently ever since, carving my own Niche though the Industry, starting A Record Label, Media Company, and climbing my way to being the best I can be!

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: It's Very Distinct. Vey Melodic. Very Smooth. With drawing inspiration from so many decades and acts in music, as well as forming my own sound and style, people can tell right away when they are listening to an Rkham song!

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

  22. A: In any setting, I would love someday to work with Imagine Dragons! In this setting, I want to work with an Artist who's hungry to be the best they can be. Someone who has a clear goal of what they want their music to accomplish. Someone who wants to show the world what they can do!

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

  24. A: ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS invest in Post Production. The proper Audio Engineer can truly take your song to the next level! Never skimp on it. I'll take great Post Production over great Equipment every time!

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

  26. A: I usually work on Hip-Hop, Pop, Indie Pop, or Acoustic Music.

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: I believe that to be my Range of Genre's I am able to do.

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

  30. A: Truly an eye for Art. I bring depth to my Vocals and Lyrics, but at the same time, in a way that can make you vibe and enjoy what you're listening to. I use to do a lot of writing, but as I've developed, I've found it so much more beneficial to feel the music in the moment, and come up with lyrics on the spot, in order to really engage with the harmonies that the instrumental provides.

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

  32. A: My typical work process consists of mulling over the instrumental and the vision behind it in order to form what I want to say. Forming the Lyrics to provide a satisfying harmony. Record the Vocals.Work with my team for Final Production. If it's left up to my interpretation, I let the beat speak to me to get the most natural lyrics at that point in time.

  33. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  34. A: My Studio Setup consists of myself (of course lol), my Shure M7 Microphone, iMac, Studio One Software, and Apollo Twin Dual Audio Interface.

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

  36. A: I draw a lot of inspiration from 50s & 60s music such as Frank Sinatra, or Nat King Cole. 70s Classic Rock such as Queen, More Modern Acts such as Imagine Dragons, Post Malone, The Weekend, Khalid, Logic, and Thomas Rhett.

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

  38. A: Most commonly I'll provide either my Lyric Writing or Vocal Performance to a Track or Project.
