ORYN is a very hard-working, talented, and focused guy. I had heard him sing before so I knew he was a very gifted vocalist, but I was thoroughly impressed when I first saw him in the role of producer. A friend went to ORYN with a track and invited me along to see him work on it. From the start it was clear that he is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to all things production related. He added some killer harmonies to the song and really brought the best aspects to life with his mixing. I've had him help me out with my projects too and it's always great! Definitely check this guy out!
ORYN produced my first EP almost 10 years ago and that gave birth to a beautiful creative relationship. ORYN takes care of artists and really understands the process on every level because he, too is an artist overflowing with passion and it really shows on all of the projects he's involved in as a producer, singer, songwriter, , and engineer. I really respect his work ethic, his determination to get it right, and his ability to really pull out the very best in everyone he works with. Oh yeah, and he's an awesome guy, a blast to hang out with. Definitely hire him or GTFO.
Interview with ORYN
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always be real with yourself and the people you work with while creating. Good songs are a dime a dozen, but life changing music comes from a place of honesty.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: My main genres are Pop, Alternative, and Rock. However, I have produced and recorded Country, Electronic, Singer-Songwriter, and many more styles.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is my ability to adapt and grow my talents and abilities to not only match the needs of the project I'm working on, but find unique ways to use them to enhance the project.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: First and foremost I bring my own personal touch to any project I work on. I'm a creative, and music is my main form of expression. Secondly, I aim for pro level quality in anything I do. I want every project I'm involved with to reach the potential that the artist sees for it.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical work process really depends on the project and the project's needs. I work closely with my clients to figure out what best suits their project, and how to bring it to life in an effective and affordable way.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work in and own several commercial recording studios that record everything from Grammy nominated/winning artists, to studio first timers. We have a wide range of recording equipment available to fit just about any project.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm most inspired by the individuals who give their all to the project, regardless of project size or popularity. Although we all want to be successful at what we do, making sure that the foundation of what we're creating is built on the music and the message the artist wants to convey is the most important thing to me.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The 3 most common things I do for my clients are recording (including engineering and session work as a vocalist/instrumentalist.) I also do quite a bit of production, and mixing work. I love to build relationships with the people I work with where we see the project from start to finish together.
