A: Vision for your recordBudget/Royalty negotiationsDeadline
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Hire me for my craft, and not because you think I will sound good on your record. What I mean is... If you hire me for a service then I should not need to revise your song a zillion times, because you picked me for a specific talent I can provide. If you don't have faith in my craft I'd rather you move on to someone else.

A: Music for Tv/Film for my personal catalog, and House/EDM/Dance for my clients on Vocalizr.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Vocal arrangement. I get more love for my actual vocal ability then anything else. Not to say I dont get praise for my songwriting skills,but most of time people love how I sound, so I guess I can pay homage to my recording engineering skills as well.
