Interview with Stephanie PHM

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

  2. A: The biggest misconception is that people don’t see how the right singer can really enhance the material they have written. The vocal delivery can really change the song.

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

  4. A: I need to know their deadline, How long the song is, how demanding it is vocally, how many vocal tracks are they needing. Do I need to do any arranging, and what specifically are they looking for style-wise.

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

  6. A: I would say to be very clear in what kind of vocal delivery you are looking for and use female voice references for style, timbre, and mood. This is very helpful.

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

  8. A: Mic, Interface, DAW, noise sheild, laptop. The rest I think I could make out of some palm leaves and coconuts 😂

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

  10. A: I have been a professional singer for about 15 years but I have learned to record myself in the past year and a half.

  11. Q: How would you describe your style?

  12. A: I think of it as Lady Gaga meets Amy Winehouse, meets a 1940s jazz chanteuse. I can play more into each one, depending on what the project asks of me.

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

  14. A: I would love to work with Bruno Mars as I really respect his song writing and he is a dynamic performer.

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

  16. A: Don’t stand too too close to the mic if you are going to really pronounce your plosive consonants. This will cause popping, even through the pop filter.

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

  18. A: I like to work on pop music probably the best right now but I have been a pro musical theatre, jazz, and classical singer in the past.

  19. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  20. A: My strongest skill is my ability to sing whatever the client needs me to sing. I also love to arrange harmonies.

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

  22. A: I bring versatility and personality. I am classically trained in music so I can understand the construction of the song and how that relates to the demands of the vocal. I am also a professional performer so I understand how to inhabit the character that needs to sing.

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

  24. A: I typically will spend some time learning and practicing the piece. Then, when I feel solid enough, I will do a take all the way through to check levels and test my knowledge. Then I will look over any rough spots and either take the whole song again or conquer sections at a time. I like to sing it all the way through whenever possible for continuity and so I can catch unexpected moments that might surprise me for the better. Then I target the spots that need extra attention. I like to do a couple of takes with different choices for variety. Then, when I get a good understanding of the shape of the lead, I will focus on doubling it with as much accuracy as possible.

  25. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  26. A: I have an AT2020 mic with Focusrite Scarlet Solo interface. I use Studio One DAW and I have Melodyne.

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

  28. A: Adele, Lady Gaga, Dua Lipa, Mama Haze, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Michael Jackson, Nina Simone, Annie Ross, Etta James, Stevie Wonder

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

  30. A: I love to bring songwriters’ songs to life with a stylized vocal. I love to sing in many different styles.
