  14. A: Can you add more reverb? Sure, I got you.lol

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

  16. A: People think this is easy and its not. I have to pay my dues and put in alot of time for free.And people think this isnt a business when the music industry is actually a 12 BiLLion dollar industry(google away for verification.lol)

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

  18. A: Deadline a few references of what direction they would like to go so I can execute what they desire. If they say Lady Gaga or 21 Savage there is a HUGE difference in style obviously. Be specific!

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

  24. A: I am on year 8. ive eclipsed my 10,000 hours of mastery for sure. More like 25,000 to 30,000 now because 80 percent of sessions I have i am co writing, producing, engineering,vocal producing, mixing and mastering.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I make music that sounds like you should be wearing a versace robe on yacht drinking expensive Champagne. I make the music that accompanies that experience.

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

  28. A: Beyonce. Im from Houston. She is a god to me. Her work ethic and ability is unmatched.

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

  30. A: Write to chords and produce around the SONG.I am a producer but we sing cadence and lyrics of songs and not drum patterns. that high hat is important but not nearly as important as an infectious hook that we want to sing over and over while we dance in our living rooms!

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

  32. A: I usually work on R&B

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: My strongest skill is Songwriting.And a close tie in with that is vocal production. I think they go hand and hand.(Topline,Harmonies and adlibs,Melodyne,editing,comping etc etc.)

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

  36. A: I bring the best of out people I work with. I bring my unique aesthetic and taste to music. I have synesthesia and perfect relative pitch so i often see colors when I create.

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

  38. A: I sit and have a conversation with the artist about what they want to say. We have an actual conversation about it and im taking notes the whole time. Then Ill play a chord progression that matches or speaks to us. We freestyle melody for about 3 minutes. I come back and vocally arrange the most fitting and compelling parts. Then we put lyrics to the melody. Once the song is dynamic and compelling I will then produce around it.Once we both like that then i will Mix and Master.

  40. A: I have Protools, Auto Tune,Melodyne,an Apollo Twin, and a Neumann TLM 102
