I started working in music studios when I was 16 years old. At 21 I started my own production company in Tulsa Oklahoma to serve the needs of artist and local musicians. I've worked out of some of the best studios in the country including Quad Studios - NYC, The Boom Boom Room & The Compound - Los Angelas, Fifty Fifty Studios - Dallas and more.
I make high quality music production, beat maker and singer/rapper. I provide a quick turnaround time on all of my work. All of my vocal and music production services include my own mix (wet/dry stems are sent upon last payment for vocals). I have over 10 years experience recording and mixing my own songs. I can also provide mixing, vocal tuning, arrangement and editing for others as well. I'm also an experienced cellist, pianist, and orchestral composer. No I'm not just a beat maker, anyone can make a beat, it takes skill to make a song.

Interview with Bryant Lamar
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Recently published a song titled "How Long?" in Response to police brutality and the killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Abrey, and many others.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently I'm working on two hip-hop mixes, and finishing up production, and starting video production on a personal album titled. POPS.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Mickey Shiloh.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Sometimes I'm on the go, and digital is key to capturing ideas quickly without having to plug in a lot of things. Nevertheless, there are just some things that a computer cannot replace. I'm lucky enough to be born at a time that analog is still in play.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love learning about new plug-ins, or trying out new software. I even like doing production exercises, I call it going to the gym.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Can you play cello on my song? Yes I could, but I have friends that do it better.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I just make beats or one style of music.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What inspired this project? What is the overall vision and emotion you want to be conveyed?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Provided examples, communicate expectations, don't be afraid to ask questions. Trust me
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Extra large water canteen, hatchet, sunglasses, straw hat, extra water bottle.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started as a student at a trade School, earning my certification in Broadcast & Sound Engineering. I later started as a intern at a local church and at 19 was hired on as Band Director. While attending school on a cello scholarship I worked nights as an studio engineer at a local studio and eventually gained the trust and ear of enough clients to go into production for myself. As a producer I traveled from studio to studio and worked on project to project. I moved to San Diego to be closer to L.A. opportunities and am now a part owner of record label in Houston Texas and freelance as a music producer/project management consultant.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I like to make music that makes people feel. I want to bring emotion out of you, I want to get your heart moving.

A: Tori Kelly, her tone is unique and versatile. She can give you power and soft tones all in the same breath.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Play until it feels right. Just because your first idea didn't fit doesn't mean your second one won't. Even if you have to take break and come back, you'll know it's right, you'll feel it.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop/and Hip hop usually because thats what comes. Occasionally I'll get a chance to work on soundtrack or cinematic pieces.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I understand how to take the ideas and translated that into the production and composition. This let's clients feel included and excited to be apart of the project.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Creativity and out of the box thinking. Cinematic approach.

Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Quincy Jones, Barry Gordy, Pharrell Williams, Ryan Tedder, Bruno Mars. People that did more than make beats, they made songs.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I create custom music compositions for artist looking for a commercial sound.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Regardless if I am working with a client or making music for myself my first approach is always to listen. Listening to my heart and trusting my instincts to know what sound express the emotion that I'm trying to convey right now.
