Interview with Sam Norris
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I operate out of my apartment studio. I typically record direct and use software for amplification, EQ, etc. Pedal steel rarely needs to be recorded through a hardware amp.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am heavily influenced by steel players such as Bobby Black (Commander Cody), Buddy Emmons, Sneaky Pete Kleinow (Flying Burrito Bros.), Bruce Bouton (Ricky Skaggs), Weldon Myrick and Hal Rugg. I played guitar for many years before I picked up steel, and am still inspired by slide players such as Derek Trucks, Sonny Landreth and Lowell George.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Typically I am provided with a track and simply asked to play steel on it using my own discretion. I am happy to fill out a song how I see fit but always appreciate direction from producers I work with.
