What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
My biggest misconception is that I am artist. I am a vocalist/songwriter. People hear my voice and automatically assume I want to get exposure and be a artist. Ive already been down that road,Im 32 with a family and overweight. My goal is to make a decent income for what I love to do, so if your not about business I can care less of how major you are.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
Vision for your recordBudget/Royalty negotiationsDeadline
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
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.
