Interview with Tony Vincent
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Singing, arranging, vocal corrections and vocal manipulations.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working with artists and creatives locally, nationally and internationally.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. Digital is easiest and most convenient. Also, analog emulations in the digital world are incredibly convincing at this point.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will promise that they will be beyond satisfied by the work that I do for and with them.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I've done music for my entire life and feel blessed every single day that I am able to continually do so.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How much do you charge?— It all depends on time frame and what's involved. Is it just singing? Am I working with an outside singer? Am I correcting someone else vocals? Am I mixing your track? (Obviously there are many different scenarios— none are solved with just "one answer."
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I'm quite clear once communication happens with the client.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Time frame, feel and purpose of track and budget.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Know what you're looking to accomplish before looking to hire anyone for your project.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: MacBookPro, Apollo Twin, 2 SM57s and an acoustic guitar.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Check out the "about" page at: www.tonyvincent.com/about
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Brit-Pop— guitar driven with lush synth elements.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Roland Orzabal— our mutual appreciation and influence of The Beatles would make for a very interesting collaboration.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I'm a big believer in addition of random and interesting percussion to make the track groove and continue propelling the listener forward.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I mostly work on pop, brit-pop, brit-rock, indy tracks.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Singing, arranging, pitch-correcting and manipulating vocals (timing) are my go-to requests when being hired. I am frequently asked to mix tracks as well.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I'm a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist— I write as well as record/mix/produce. All can be done in-house at my studio SoundShop370. I'm always happy to work remote as well.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Every situation is different and I'm quite flexible. I've written alone as well as co-written with other writers. If there is a good song to work with, the production is much easier to sort out than working on an "average" track.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is centered around a BlackLion Audio modified UAD Apollo. I have a substantial mic locker— all going thru Neve 1073s and into Distressors.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Although it was a Beatles record that inspired me to pursue music full time, Martin Gore of Depeche Mode continues to be one of the most inspirational songwriters and artists in my trajectory. Along with being a major label solo artist (EMI & Sony) primarily known for my vocals, I'm a multi-instrumentalist and producer—having honed my recording skills from producers like Spike Stent, Roland Orzabal, Nigel Godrich and Butch Vig.
