What questions do you ask prospective clients?
I like to talk about bands and albums and styles they like. It helps me get a sense of the direction they want to go.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Communication is key. The more I know about what you want, the better my chances are of getting it right on my first try. (Reference tracks!)
How would you describe your style?
Adaptive. I also like to live by the 'less is more' motto when it's appropriate.
Can you share one music production tip?
Practice! The only way to get better is to keep doing it.
What do you bring to a song?
Passion! I'm constantly working with music in one way or another. It's my desire to make whatever I'm working on sound the best that I possibly can. Whether it's me playing drums and running sound for my own band or me mixing another band live or recording and mixing a band in my studio or running the board at church, the music gets my absolute best effort.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Recording and mixing and playing drums. I also do live sound locally and play drums in the Derek Davis Band which keeps me pretty busy.
