Brett has been a close collaborator with Phangs over the years and has been incredible to work with! Brett treats each session individually and provides a personalized touch to each track he works on!

Interview with Brett Truitt
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Proud of the Fly by Midnight song with Betty Who called Lovely. I’m a perfectionist and it’s very difficult to say “ahhh yes that’s exactly how I wanted it to sound” and that song is one of the few I wouldn’t change a thing.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Working on projects for TV/Film, an album with an artist Phangs, and writing songs for pitch.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Jon Santana
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Whatever gets the sounds from out of my head into the world. Both are great.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to try my best to reach the vision you have for a song.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I can express myself creatively.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Can you make the chorus feel bigger? A lot a times my answer is I can add more instruments but if the melody and lyric isn’t great me making the chorus bigger won’t make the song better.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I think probably sometimes people try to box me in as just a producer or just a writer. When I feel like I do both equally.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What has been inspiring you lately?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Ask lots of questions, everyone wants the best fit and best songs, and getting on the same page is the biggest contributing factor in that.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, interface, midi keyboard, guitar, microphone.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I’ve been doing this for 8 years. Tried to start a band in high school and no one would join. So I learned to produce and been making music ever since.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Bon Iver. Would love to watch and learn in the process of making a Bon Iver record.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Even though you might’ve worked really hard on a synth/guitar/bass part and it might sound great solo’d if it doesn’t work with the mix song. Delete it.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I’ll work on anything, typically don’t do metal or hard rock though.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Vision for a song and knowing when a piece fits.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: From songwriting, to instrumentation, to editing. I like to thing of myself as a jack of all trades
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to throw paint at the wall, just spend hours laying down tons of tracks and then stripping back to my favorites and what’s really needed.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I run a pro tools 11 rig with a RME UFC interface.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
