If you want a hit make sure you tap in with the bro #NoCap
Incredibly talented, always creates and conducts business in a fast timely manner. Love the way he's able to understand what you want to portray in a song and depict it within the times of pop culture to produce something catchy, good quality, and unique.
Interview with DiAlo
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Im blessed to have been apart of some amazing shows and albums. So to prioritize one over the other is hard for me. Im beyond blessed to do what I absolutely love consistency on a high level..
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Im working on various artist projects, as well as companies like FOX, STARZ, and HBO for tv syncs.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Quality analog. For the aspect of time saving, digital.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: We will always create great music.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The different energies I get to interact with. I love interacting with people and hearing about their journeys, and God willing, be able to be apart of their climb to success.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: What is it like working with big artist? Its no different, the love, passion, and excitement they get when they find a song they love is just like yours. Because there is no feeling like when you're working on something that you want to share with others.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is that the songwriting aspect is easy. Yes anyone CAN write a song, but not everyone is a SONGWRITER. Alot of the attention goes to the artist and producers (no disrespect to them), but it is the melody and lyrics that get stuck in everyones heads.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I always want to know what type of feelings, situations, and emotions are they currently feeling.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Just be ready to work. Always address individuals on their energy and not their resume.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I would take my Mac, headphones, mic, interface, and (I know its not gear but just as vital) SAGE.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Id describe my style as a fresh, original, yet modern and familiar.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I love Stevie Wonder. The way he was able to structure his records, the way his melodies and notes married with the music (that he played and structured as well) was pure brilliance.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Create from a place to express not to impress.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I truly enjoy working on any genre.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is creating music!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring original, tasteful, modern melodies that match the style of the record. Also a pen that is ALWAYS clever with word play and schemes, but also hard to match lyrically.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Usually the client sends me over a record, and a brief (if any) explanation of what they would like the record to be about or feel like.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I not only have a in home studio, I also have multiple studios I work out of as I travel.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: To be honest im inspired by ANY and EVERY type of music. When I hear music, no matter the genre, I listen for (sounds, melodies, vocal performance, structuring, production, etc.) that I feel I can incorporate into my sound.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I provide melody, top-line and record structuring.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Ive been a fan of creating music since 2002, but have been creating professionally for 10 years now.
