Noel Scott White on SoundBetter

Owner/operator of HUDSON STREET SOUND. Hudson Street Sound produces HUDSON STREET SESSIONS for WRNR, hosting many of todays top touring artists.

Touring for the past 15 years with artists such as Herbie Hancock and Sting has given me a unique perspective on the power of arrangements and dynamics. I try to bring that focus to all the projects I work on. Whether it be drumming on your track, or mixing it, I will always focus on the song as a whole rather than just making sure you have the fattest kick drum sound.

Interview with Noel Scott White

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Both.

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

  4. A: I will always do the best I can.

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

  6. A: Being part of the creative process with interesting people.

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

  8. A: Who are your influences, and what direction would you like me to take this song in?

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: I have a good game plan going into every session and I try to set up for any situation that might pop up. That way my style comes off laid back during the actual session.

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

  12. A: Hire the right musicians to work on your record and then trust them. Let them influence the session rather than expecting them to be musical robots.

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

  14. A: my drumming is very influenced by Levon Helm and Russ Kunkel. a few of my favorite producers are Daniel Lanois, Tchad Blake

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

  16. A: I work a lot with solo artists looking to achieve a full band sound. On the other side of the spectrum the studio really lends itself to live tracking so very often I'll have a full jazz or rock band laying down all their tracks at once.

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: Hudson Street Sound is designed with a lot of classic mic press going into Universal Audio converters. Sometimes I'll mix it in the box, other times I'll run it through my Gamble HC-40. A handmade late 70's console that resided in The Fillmore West.
