Interview with Kyle Crawford
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: For me personally, its not so much the music being the actual 'thing'- but the vessel in which I communicate best. Making music is basically communicating for me. Talking. Rapping. I can feel where someone has been or where they are about to go. Who they are, who they once were. All kinds of information through tones, volume, delivery. It is how I talk.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Eclectic. Unique. Original. X-factor. Money.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Use your ear. Follow the instruments.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Studio psychology. Knowing when the artist is over-exerting themselves-artist fatigue. Paying attention to the overall vibe, mood, and direction of a particular session. Sensing and capitalizing on the emotional reaction. Compromising and communicating with the artist. Internalizing the material, listening to what the artist would like to achieve and at the same time describing to the artist what I need to obtain it. Studio psychology.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring whatever is necessary. I bring enthusiasm. Enthusiasm for the whole process. Producing, recording, mixing. It's my job to be lit and encourage whatever vision is being presented. I want the artist to feel free, have confidence in knowing that with my ear and experience, I'm here to help and have nothing but the best intentions for them as a artist. Not only for them, but for myself. Also reassure the artist(s) that the end result will blow their expectations away.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Well basically, I used to record for artists and then mix when they left. At a point in my life I had lost my studio and personally, myself, had to record elsewhere. During that time I would make sure I would finish the song completely in a timely manner so I could have it with me, because I did not know when or where I'd have the opportunity to mix or record again. That being said, I developed a habit of finishing the song(s) right then and there in a timely manner. I've recorded and mixed 10 songs in a night. I like to work with speed, I find that if I spend too much time on something, it gets redundant and I over-do the mix. I'm aggressive with how I approach the mix, and make steadfast decisions- in a sense I let the art just flow.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Recording vocals, producing beats, arranging the song. Creating the song in some cases. What I mean by that is, sometimes I might not be recording a inexperienced artist and they just need to be free on the track with no judgement and be able to vibe however is natural for them. In that case, I will literally construct the song with takes they gave me creating a song.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is a space with different lighting, different tones of light. Canvas art everywhere you look. Comfortable couches, open space. Some of the equipment I have been using lately consists of Miktek CV3, Baby Bottle, Aston Origin as far as mics, RME Babyface interface, and Protools. As far as production I use Native Instruments Maschine Studio. I use everything to my advantage. Space & equipment whether good or bad.
