I first approached Kevin as I was having trouble getting my productions over the finish line. I wasn't sure what to expect but after working together for some time now its safe to say I was really impressed! Kevin really listens to your vision and how you want to achieve your goals and brings you there. He does not impose his own ideas of how your sound should be but instead guides you to where you want to go based on your needs while offering constructive help and advice along the way. Kevin is easy to work with because he makes production/mixing a fun process while getting the job done.
Accept no substitute! Total pro. Fun guy to be around too.. almost didn’t feel like work and yet at the end, he handed me 2 huge sounded tracks for my EP. Comin out this summer! Big up Ke,v Big up Wavefarm familia, We Out Here
Kevin is my go-to sound producer. We used to work on T.V. and music, most recently it's podcasts and government events. Whatever the setting, the sound is superbly crisp and I get a super professional finished product.
I have worked with Kevin on various projects for nearly 6 years now and have thoroughly enjoyed doing so. He gets very involved in the piece you bring to him as well as you as an artist and really thinks about how to get the best out of you. He is always enthusiastic about trying new and/or difficult things and knows how keep things simple when they need to be too. He's also not afraid to just tell you when simple is better! Many times I've been blown away by a relatively strange idea that turns out to be exactly what the song needed too, from compositional notes to mixing.
I have worked with Kevin on a number of projects over the years. He is a truly talented musician and producer who always offers a variety of creative solutions and great personal care and attention in his work.
Interview with Kevin Brennan
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I primarily work out of my studio, a fully equipped and treated room. I particularly like working on final mixes in my own studio as I know the sound of the room and the speakers well. With production and recording projects I use other studios depending on the clients needs.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I just try to find out exactly what they are looking for and how I can help with that.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started my music path making my own music and playing in bands when I was young. I went on to study sound engineering, then I studied music Production at Windmill Lane Studios in Ireland. Since then I have worked in a number of studios as well as my own here in Ireland with a variety of clients. I have been professionally working in sound and music for 8 years now.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common type of work I do is production, arrangement, mixing, editing, creating instrumental parts.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: It depends on the project, and what the reason for going analogue or digital may be. Most of what I do is digital, I can achieve a very convincing analogue sound through digital means in most scenarios, though there are certain times where its best to stay analouge, such as in the case of certain synthesizers and recording to tape for example.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on a range of projects at the moment, with a few different artists and organisations, as well as on my own personal projects.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: No client I work with is any more or less important to me, I give the creative vision of each client the same level of respect and will always do my best to create something special.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The excitement of creating something me and the client are proud of really drives me. I also enjoy the challenge of problem solving and creatively finding solutions. There is such a great feeling at the end of a project when you know that you have given it your best and created something special and unique.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I have been a musician since I was young, and I have worked on many different projects across different genres, each time learning something new. I have made it my ambition to understand how to craft and shape sound to achieve the results I am looking for.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical work process involves getting the best idea I can of what the client is looking for, then through revisions narrowing it down to the final piece of work.
