Interview with Mimi Cat
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I was the lead vocalist on the closing track for the Sonic Forces Soundtrack. It's called 'Light Of Hope' and I loved working on it!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on a second album with a client. He has released the first album we did and now I'm playing a more creative role in it and I'm excited!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'm new to this platform so I will update this as I go!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I've recorded with both and both have their positives!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To deliver a high quality product. If a client wants changes I will always do my best to ensure they are happy with the final product.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Creativity, and working with like minded people, and then hearing the final product
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Usually the price I charge and if I can create backing vocal harmonies, which I can!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That recording is a really quick process. I am a perfectionist and I won't send final vocals to a client unless they sound great. No matter the price. It reflects badly on myself and the final product.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is the style of the track? What they require (lead vocals? harmonies? etc)? What is the timeframe?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Send me a message! Haha! I'm always open to chat through ideas!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, headphones, mic, interface, pop shield.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I studied at music school and have been in the industry around 10 years, recording, writing and gigging live (because you cant beat live music).
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: pop/soul with a jazzy edge.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: There are so many! Maybe James Blake as I love his style, and any of the old jazz icons.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: After a few hours on a project, take a break and go back and listen again with fresh ears!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Usually soul, RnB or pop. I often write hooks for house or EDM tracks.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Versatility. I have a strong stylistic sense for different genres, and I can replicate a style well. I trained in Jazz, contemporary music and even Musical theatre, my voice is versatile.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Client satisfaction! Some clients want creativity and others have their own solid idea of how a track should sound, so I work with that to create a brilliant finished product!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Depending on the brief, I start by getting a feel for the track, and communicating with the client to ensure were on the same page creatively. For tracks that are already prewritten I record the vocals and send a demo to the client to ensure they are happy and then I edit them before send the final vocals over. For lyrics or melody writing, I will get a variety of ideas sent to the client and work closely with them to get the track sounding great, before recording final vocals.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Rode NT1A Logic Pro X
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Amy Winehouse - her jazz vocals and lyrics are amazing. Ella Fitzgerald - her improv skills are unbeaten For style I like BANKS and Solange,
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly record lead vocals and harmonies on prewritten tracks for independent artists, but I also write lyrics and melodies for hooks and whole tracks.
