5 ReviewsEndorse Marc Bosserman
Marc is nothing less than the best. He played on my song "Do You" and added the xact style and sentimented need. Stellar and highly recomended!
I hired Marc for a few keyboard sessions for an album I was producing. He was super professional, great attitude, easy to give ideas and get creative useful keyboard parts back that fit the song very well. And he showed up with great gear and good sounds!!
I have hired Marc twice now--once to do a piano track, the other time to assist me in sequencing a string arrangement. He us easy to work with, knows his equipment, and can play damn-near any style on piano. He's got a great, soulful voice too (think Cat Stevens, Ray LaMontagne, etc.) Lastly, he gets great sounds out of his home studio.
Marc is a total pro. Great feel and just seems to know the right things to play for the song. And he sings his ass off too! I've hired him for live and studio and he always delivers.
Marc was a real asset on a recent recording project of mine. His mastery of multiple keyboard styles and genial personality make him a pleasure to work with.

Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love music. I love creating, performing, seeing the effect music has on everyone around me.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How much do you charge? I'm competitive, I would offer here that I'll bend on my rate if the client is on a tight budget. But I'll also take tips. How long will it take? Honestly, for me, it's usually over before I have too much time to think about it. So, I think it's fast.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I'm going to make everything sound like Jazz. I love to play and sing with a jazz vibe but I love rock and understand pop can't be overplayed.

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

Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Make it musical and alive. No matter what it is art it has to communicate above all else.

A: I've worked mostly with singer-songwriters in the indie or soft rock vibe. But I've also worked on some more pop productions.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Just being about to communicate with people and understand what they want and then of course being an amazing pianist that loves to create and play. But I'm also totally about the artists vision more than my take.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I'm all about the vibe and the communication and that little bump that makes it, wow!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Listen to the track, get with the client to get an idea of what's wanted, I love to get a reference of the perfect sort of vibe the client wants and then just sit down and bang out two or three passes. I usually work really quickly and almost never get to do more than that becuase they like the first or one of the alternatives.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
