    Cora is such an awesome songwriter. The way she writes really makes the listener feel those emotions. Her writing is so powerful.

Interview with Cora Vasseur

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: When I got started I worked with several music directors in sketch comedy shows. They created the music and I created the words. I loved how we were in the flow and worked fast and the final products were in shows that made people laugh and were the highlights of their days.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: A series of singles.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Kris Bradley of BoomFox Productions. She's my mentor and amazing.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital. It gives you time and you can take as many takes as you need/want.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: I promise to give 110% to your project, to keep communicating through the process, and always make the deadline.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: I love the magic of creating something, collaborating and connecting with someone's vision to help them create what they hear in their head.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: They ask about turnaround and price. Prices are above. Turnaround varies, but it's usually never longer than a week and I always make the deadline we've decided upon.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: Artists are flakey and challenging to deal with. I pride myself on communication and listening.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: I usually ask what artists or songs inspired the song they're asking me to work on.

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Give artist or song examples if you can. It helps guide the direction.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: I would take my laptop with Logic, my mic, my interface, midi controller and my acoustic guitar.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I've done toplining and lyrics since 2010. I've been singing for 3 years.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: My style has been described as a girls night out with Kacey Musgraves and Joni Mitchell, fun and uplifting.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: I would like to hold a seance or time travel to work with Elliott Smith. I love his way with words and his recording techniques to create these simple, but powerful songs.

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: You have time. Breath. One of the great things about digital and recording at home is we can do several takes.

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: I usually work on a lot of "hyphen" genres: folk-pop, folk-rock, acoustic pop. If someone wants something to be heavily influenced by a genre, I can bring in that style. I grew up on music from the 60's and a wide range of rock.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: My strongest skill is helping people say what they want to say and how they feel.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I bring optimism, a quirky sense of humor, and different way of seeing things. I love making connections and creating unique metaphors. I bring patience and create space for an idea to come out and develop.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: I listen to the client, asking them what songs or artists they like, were inspired by or what sound/vibe they're looking for. I listen to the track and see how it makes me feel. I write an intuitive take with the client's inspiration in mind and fine tune until it's what the client wants.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I have a home studio that includes Logix Pro X, an Audio Technica AT2020 condenser mic, Scarlett Focusrite interface.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: There are so many from so many genres, but I really like Elliott Smith, Phoebe Bridgers, and Josh Ramsay.

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: My most common work for clients is listening to what they want, what they're looking for and creating a unique melody or topline for them.
