Interview with Logan Matheny

  1. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  2. A: I'm reliable, honest and always on time. I never phone-in anything. I want each project to be the best it can be and I'll work until we are both happy with the end result.

  3. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  4. A: I love watching artists create music that really excites them and makes them want to share it with the world.

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

  6. A: All questions mostly revolve around: What are we shooting for? What’s the timeline? And, how can I help prepare in the most efficient way so that when we get into the studio, we’re all prepared to make something great?

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

  8. A: Be honest about what you do and don’t like in the studio or the writing. That honesty is the best way to maintain your own enthusiasm for your art. Don’t settle for what someone else likes or thinks might work. Finding joy in the creation process is key, and surrounding yourself with people and tools that support that process is priceless.

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: It's important for an engineer and a mixer to not get in the way of an artist's vision, and to help serve that ultimate goal. So, in that light, I make it my goal to be intuitive, supportive, and encouraging.

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

  12. A: Ray Charles 1959, the Rolling Stones in 1969, or Van Morrison in 1972! All were top-notch writers/musicians, incredible singers, and recording them must have been a blast.

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

  14. A: The musicality of a songwriter, the ears of an engineer, and years of experience making records.

  15. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  16. A: Mixing Chuck Berry's final record was definitely a life highlight for me, not only because I was a huge fan but also because he influenced so many other artists whose work I love and admire.

  17. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  18. A: Digital is best for tracking, for speed and for cost effective-ness. Analog is great for mixing, for adding character and for how it allows me to get my hands on every sound.

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

  20. A: UA 1176 DBX 165A Neuman U67 Neve 1073 Studer 1" 8 Track Tape Machine

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

  22. A: Like many, I started out in a band, writing and recording our own music. I moved to Nashville after getting a publishing deal, built a studio for my writing endeavors, and then discovered that I loved engineering and mixing more than writing, so I began offering my studio to other songwriters which allowed me to focus on what I actually enjoyed.

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

  24. A: "Get to the good part!"

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

  26. A: Country, Indie Rock, Alternative, Pop, Gospel & Singer-Songwriter.

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: Engineering and mixing.

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

  30. A: Of course it always depends on the actual client or project to some degree, but the first order is to understand the scope of what we’re trying to accomplish, and then design a palette of sounds that will inspire an artist to help point them in the direction of their goal. Then it’s all about being as efficient as possible to keep the creative process flowing and exciting for all of those involved.

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

  32. A: Engineer, record and mix records.
