    Thomas gave us a perfect vocal first time out. Not only was his vocal beautiful, but it was the perfect balance of pop/country that I tried to convey to him that I wanted. He made the song sound like a contemporary hit. He was also wonderful to work with. I hope he will do some other songs of ours in the future.

    Brady was a total pro and completely nailed the feeling that I was hoping he would do on my recording. He went way above and beyond my expectations with his performance. Looking forward to using him again in the future.

    Brady's body of vocal work speaks for itself with many dynamic performances across genres. His raw talent sets him above the majority of vocalists I have worked with. What may not come through as clearly to the listener is Brady's professionalism. After a few sessions with Brady, I am blown away by his ability to consistently translate his capability as a vocalist and guitarist into gorgeous recorded parts. I love mixing songs with Brady's vocals in them and wholeheartedly endorse his vocal abilities and overall musical talent.

Interview with Thomas Brady Lee

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

  2. A: I typically am asked to track vocals for projects. I am often brought into a project to contribute to the songwriting process and then cut the vocal track. One of my favorite things to do is topline; people bring me loops and tracks and I get to be influenced by the music before writing the melody and the lyric. That's super fun.

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

  4. A: I am amazed by people like Jonah Nilsson (Dirty Loops) and Clark Beckham. These guys are a caliber so far above the rest; the way they control their voices is just jaw-dropping. I could listen to them all day. I also love the production behind the latest LANY and Joan records; thick synth soundscapes like that just have a way to my heart. Moreover, I'm always inspired by the creativity coming from Mutemath, the 1975, and the Killers.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: Something cool about my setup is that I work for a church, so I have access to a beautiful live room Monday-Friday. I can give you as much of a live room sound as you'd like, or keep things tight and dry using my Aston Halo. I've got a few different mics to choose from, depending on the track needs. We can use my Charter Oak SA538 Tube Mic, a Lauten Audio Atlantis FET condenser, and Shure SM7b, or a Slate VM1. I've got other weird mics that I've collected over the years, just in case we need to get weird! I'll also typically track through a Neve 1073 or an API 3124 preamp for an analog character. I grew up collecting guitar gear. Aside from a wide range of guitars, I've got a wide breadth of real amps and an ax-fx III. We'll get you the sound you're looking for. I also track through the UAD Ox Box for incredible guitar results. I track everything through my UAD apollo setup into Logic Pro and have more plugins than I probably should, so we can get whatever sound you're going for.

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

  8. A: I'm a very collaborative person because I want to nail your heart and vision. My goal is to bring you genuine and creative tracks every time. Secondly, I want to deliver those tracks as fast as possible. My process isn't hurried or rushed, it's authentic and a breath of fresh air.

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

  10. A: Something I do differently is that I strive to get the performance in front of the mic right, as opposed to fixing takes in post-production. I believe that kind of authenticity translates to listeners. I bring passion and enthusiasm to songs. I want every person I work with to walk away feeling like I gave everything I had.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Vocals are my sweet spot. Then songwriting and toplining are a close second.

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

  14. A: I've been working on a lot of Indie Pop tracks, specifically with a band called Coastlines. I've also been doing a lot of demo vocals and songwriting for CCM.

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

  16. A: I'd say always be up to take a chance and be vulnerable. It translates.

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

  18. A: I'd love to work with Bono because the guy is just a legend.

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: I'm a guy who grew up listening to Queen, U2, Goo Goo Dolls, OneRepublic, and Coldplay. Somewhere in that mix is my style.

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

  22. A: I'd bring my computer, apollo twin, gretsch falcon, sm7b, and neve preamp.

  23. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  24. A: I think tools are tools. In my opinion, analog is way more fun to work on, but digital can get you there!

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

  26. A: I've worked with a mix engineer named Justin Ginn about 10 times over and absolutely love his process. Another guy I've worked with is Chris Gala, who gives amazing production tips that bring a song to life.

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

  28. A: I started making music on an 8 track Tascam out of the basement of an old church building around the age of 14. It's been a wild journey. Throughout high school, I just kept making tracks. I spent time in theatre, performing in off-broadway type stuff, then in a pop-rock band for about 4 years that toured through middle and high schools for school dances and special events (yea, it's as awful as it sounds). Then I toured with a post-rock group called Native Tongues for about 4 years, until settling down with my wife and two boys in Milwaukee Wi, where I serve a local church as a music director, writing and recording songs through the week.

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

  30. A: My advice is to have a vision for what you want, but keep your mind open. The reality is that everyone brings something to the table in the creative process. Find someone you really click with and use them often!

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

  32. A: I don't know! Maybe that perfect takes are a real thing? The only way perfect takes happen is through compiling multiple takes, pulling the best from each, and fine-tuning each moment. I try to get as close to perfect as possible, but perfection just isn't a real thing until it goes through the editing process.

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

  34. A: Meeting and collaborating with new people!

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