I am currently living in France, where I have been a music producer and a mixer for several years.

My ambitions are without limits, I always search for new challenges and I am not afraid to travel the world to work and interact with different types of artists.

My culture and my travels (which include the USA, England, Iceland, Norway, etc.) have strengthened my influences and through them I have achieved my own sound.

People who offer me their confidence give me the chance to prove that their satisfaction is my priority.

I worked with Tom Coyne, UE Nastasi, Ted Jensen, Andy Vandette, Erik Ron...

My list of clients includes major labels such as Universal Music (Mercury), Sony Music (ATV Music), MyMajorCompagny and more.

    Working with Yann was a true pleasure! The song is inspiring and the sound is great. We quickly agreed on the demo of the arrangement, made little adjustments so that strings recording went smoothly and the result was great. Yann always replied promptly and in a very polite and encouraging way. Enjoyed this collaboration a lot!

    Yann was extremely easy to work, great communication and direction. I played on a really nice piece of music that was constructed and orchestrated perfectly. A nice, pleasant and productive experience.

Interview with Yann Marchadour

Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
I’ve worked on a French Pop artist’s album, Kinnie Lane. She is signed in a Major label (MyMajorCompagny). The project is still in process, but she’s talented which makes it very interesting to work on. My main role is based on the production but our collaboration goes further, the direction and the composition choices are completely shared.
What are you working on at the moment?
A lot of mixing and production, I’m collaborating with a Rock-Metal band for whom I produce the songs, we’ll mix the album at the end of the year in Los Angeles with Erik Ron, it’s a very long process because the project is consequent.
Analog or digital and why?
Both, in fact it’s important to take in consideration the actual shifting, nowadays technology plays a big role, it makes us able to go bewond our limits, but classics stay classics, nothing can replace the sound of a Neve 1073.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
To always do my best, and that they’ll never be disapointed.
What do you like most about your job?
Putting the technical side appart, I love to exchange with my customers, see them grow and evolue when the songs come out.
What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
Customer : Can you mix this song quickly and for cheaper ? :) Me : I can, but you won’t like the result !
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
I like to know the project’s goals, are they professional or amateur, indeed this can effect my approach. Nowadays it’s important to respect certain codes, especially for the radio or on TV.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
To have good songs, to be clear and precise on his requests, and to have faith in the person.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
Neve 1073, UA 1176, SonyC800G, Gibson Hummingbird, Rme UFX, and MacBook Pro (6 ;) )
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I started producing demos when I was 16 with my first bands, since then things just went on from their by producing independant bands, and collaborating with record labels.
How would you describe your style?
Modern and innovative.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
I would love to work with Incubus for the way they create their melodies, express their energy and emotions.
Can you share one music production tip?
The best tip I can give is to write good songs, if the emotion is strong, it’s easier for me to take it to the top.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I’ve worked a lot on pop, but also everything that is rock, metal related.
What's your strongest skill?
I quickly identify the client’s needs and easily adapt to their request.
What do you bring to a song?
I have always tried to keep the essence and the meaning originaly linked to the song, my role is to amplify this meaning to take it to the next level.
What's your typical work process?
The first step for me is to listen to the song, understand the structure, determine if the production is good, find out if there are any original problems with the song, because the musical quality depends on how the song is written. Then I take time to listen to each track, to correct, edit, clean and intergrate them at best in the song. I always finish off with an automation and adjustement work on the mix.
Tell us about your studio setup.
My configuration is a perfect mix between digital and analog, I work « in the box » but I use an analog summation, and a Universal Audio and Neve preamps, but also compressors such as DBC, CL1B, 1176, etc.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I have a lot of respect for people in the industry, this is not original but I’ve always particularly been in admiration for Chris Lord Alge, David Bendeth, Serban Ghenea’s work but also Dustin Burnett, Blake Harnage or Joey Sturgis, and of course « all star » producers such as Doctor Luke, Max Martin, Benny Blanco…
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Generally, I work on a song as the Producer, so that I can work on the quality of the song entirely by making the production and the mix. To my mind, this is the best way to offer a quality out come.
