Brock on SoundBetter

I am a producer, singer, and songwriter from LA who specializes in Pop, EDM, Top40 and K-Pop. I've been producing and writing for past 13 years am confident I can take your music to the next level!

SERVICES:

VOCALS/TOPLINE:

If you're looking for an Adam Levine-esc Male Pop vocal for your track or beat, I am your guy. I will write both the melody and lyrics as well as provide mixed, professional-standard vocal recordings with harmonies. (Please note that I will not be credited on your work).

PRODUCTION:

Have a song you wrote and need production for? I am fluent in guitar, bass, drums, and keyboard and only require a topline to start making your track. No topline? No worries, we can do the entire song together from scratch. I am super flexible with edits and will work with you from conception to completion to make sure you love the final product!

ARTIST DEVELOPMENT:

Are you a talented singer and artist in need of a cohesive sound? I will work with you one-on-one to develop, write, record, and package your music for label pitch*.

Please contact me for more details.

    starstarstarstarstar

    One of the most talented people I’ve worked with, Brock can do it all. From production, to writing the song, to top lining, Brock is great with all aspects of the creation process, and has a superstar voice. Overall great dude and super easy to work with.

Interview with Brock

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Whenever I write a new song that I like I'm proud. Little wins keep you going in this industry

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I'm developing a few artists set to release in 2020 that I'm really excited about.

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

  6. A: Yes! Zach Striar is close collaborator of mine and a raw producer especially if you're looking for hip hop/r&b beats

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Analog instruments, digital everything else. EQ can fix a lot, but analog synths and instruments just have a more human touch.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: That I will put 100% effort into my work and will devote everything I have to make sure we are both completely satisfied with the finished product.

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

  12. A: I get to create something new everyday that never existed

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: How much is your rate? Email me.

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

  16. A: Time. Some great songs take a day to make, some shitty songs take a long time to make, and vice versa. There is no rule of thumb.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: What's your goal and what's your timeframe.

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

  20. A: Every producer, writer, topliner, etc. has their own style and sense of "what's good". It's important that lines up with you.

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

  22. A: Oh lawd...uhm, probably a solar generator, my Apollo, my laptop, the SM7b, and my acoustic guitar

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

  24. A: I'm from MS originally and moved to LA a little over 8 years ago to pursue music. All-in-all, it's been about 13 years since I started producing and writing music.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: My main instrument is guitar, and I love records that have a dance feel. I gravitate towards that.

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

  28. A: Adam Levine. I get compared to him a lot vocally, and I think it's time we settle the score (lol, jk, but seriously).

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

  30. A: LA-2A

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

  32. A: Mainly Pop, but I also have an extensive background in Alt Rock, EDM, and most recently K-Pop

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: I'd say my strongest skill is making a song catchy

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

  36. A: Great songs to me are catchy, so I strive to make a song as catchy as possible be it with the vocal melody, arrangement, or instrumentation

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

  38. A: Depends on what I'm doing. If I'm writing, I'll start with chords. If I'm toplining, I'll write melodies until I find one that really hits me. If I'm producing, I'll put on my headphones and got into the vortex until I come out the other side with a finished song.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I work off an iMac Pro and completely in the box. I have a range of guitars and run them through a Kemper for tones. For vocals, I use an SM7B or a Neumann TLM103 depending on the artist/singer and run it through my Universal Audio chain. I've got a full room fit for recording vocals and single band members - not a full band and no live drums.

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

  42. A: Max Martin is my all-time inspiration. His pop sensibility is unmatched and his career has been nothing short of legendary

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

  44. A: I do a lot of writing sessions and work with writers, producers and artists. I have a home studio, so most of my sessions are hosted at mine where I'll produce as well as write
