Analog or digital and why?
BOTH. I love experimenting as much as possible, and I don't want to rule out anything that can potentially shape the sound the way I want to.
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I started recording my own music when I was 8. I seriously have CDs of music from 1998 with me banging the piano and pretending I'm the best singer alive. I've been working on my craft since then - learning from other artists, and listening to as many styles as I possibly can.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
I think if I could get in a room with Phil Collins, Chris Martin, Imogen Heap, and Kendrick Lamar, we'd have a pretty good time.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Pop, Rock, Alternative - anything that's catchy really.
What do you bring to a song?
I bring a strong sense of melody. I also listen to almost everything out there, and as MUCH of everything as I can. So I know how to not only work with a style, but how to experiment with it to make a truly unique sound.
What's your typical work process?
It totally depends on the song. I've started tracks with a simple piano riff. Some songs have begun with a song title, or a drum beat. Some songs have taken me all of 10 minutes to write, and some I've had on my iPhone in various states for 3+ years.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I work out of my fairly spacious room in Upper Manhattan. I have a lot of gear I've collected over the years that stems around my piano, guitar, microphone, a few compressors, a mic preamp, and 2 audio interfaces.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A lot of the time, it's recording my vocals for projects. I've recorded vocals for EDM, Ambient, Pop/Rock, & even Hip/Hop Background Vocals. Beyond that, I love mixing records for artists.
