  24. A: My tastes and my personality. I like what I like and those preferences and choices are my sonic fingerprint.

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

  26. A: I listen to the demo I've been given and then try to work out the harmony and melody on the piano. Once I understand what's going on musically I can then start to make some production decisions. If you've given me a reference track I try to create something similar or If not I'll start experimenting with different ideas until I've got a finished song

  27. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  28. A: I work out of small home studio, It's basic but it does everything I need. I use Reason 10 for generating the ideas and creating the track and then I can use Pro Tools for the mixdown. I've got a few guitars here and a drum kit and I've also got a few microphones for doing vocals.

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

  30. A: I like the sonic palate of producer MJ Cole, love the musicality of Jacob Collier, the realness of Mark Ronson and the creativity of Kevin Parker.

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

  32. A: I create the instrumental tracks for a lot of singers learning to sing. They might have ideas for songs they have written on the piano and the guitar but they don't know anything about recording or production. That's where I step in and help the artist create the songs they have written.
