3 ReviewsEndorse Robbie Hutton
Working with Robbie was a great experience. He's a great communicator and works hard to help you achieve the vision you're looking for. Highly responsive and delivers fast. I will definitely be working with Robbie again in the future.
Robbie is a very talented and professional vocalist and topliner, I worked with him many times, he understands your approach and what suits your instrumental, he is very quick and amazing in his work, I will definitely work with him more in the future
Robbie is very professional. He understands very well what the song needs and knows how to write original melodies and lyrics. His writing style is as unique as his voice. You'll definitely have a blast working with him!
Interview with Robbie Hutton
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a lot of emotion and a poetic touch to the song, regardless of the Genre. I always strive to give the listener that "goosebump" feeling so when I have achieved that, It's a fact that the song is good. I use that as a landmark.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When Toplining, I fire the Instrumental up into my DAW, sit with an SM58, play the song on a loop (in small chunks at a time) and hum through a melody. I'll do this until I am 100% convinced I have come up with the best melody. I'll then move away from the Mac for 30 mins/an hour then come back with fresh ears and make more adjustments. Then, I'll scratch down some rough lyrics and get a feel for the song, usually using those lyrical notes as a foundation for the actual lyrics. Once the song is finished, I'll usually sleep on it and let my subconscious mind mull on the Melody/Lyrics I have written, so when I come back in the morning I can change/add bits necesarry to finalise the song. Then I record the final vocal tracks and send back to the client!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a Mac, Logic Pro X (DAW), Focusrite Scarlett pre-amp (upgrading to the UAD Apollo Twin very soon), Roland JUNO_Di keyboard, Waves bundle/Soundtoys bundle/Melodyne plug ins. These plug ins work wonders when I process my Vocals for my clients - a professional standard of Vocal is always achieved when I process them!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Before I started doing Toplining as my main profession, I mainly performed with my band in the Indie/Pop genre, so my influences are now some what scattered! If I were to go right back to my roots though, the likes of Cat Stevens, Dire Straits and James Taylor were my heroes. Getting older, I got right into Robbie Williams (Guy chambers is a songwriting genius), then on to bands like Oasis, The Fratellis and Paolo Nutini. Now I get a lot of inspiration from Artists such as John Martin, Bonn etc for the type of work I do now.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mainly do Toplining. I specialise in Pop/Progressive house but I have also workd on Trance/Future Bass/Future House tracks, and even Troplical House. A Future House track I recently worked on has been signed to KIWISTAGE.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on a few Toplines for EDM tracks. That has been my main focus during these uncertain COVID times with Live Performances being almost non-existent, but I am loving the Topline work none the less!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I would recommend my EDM Producer friend "Achilles". He is such a hard working guy and his professionalism is top tier.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to only class the song as "finished" when you are 100% happy, and I will do everything from my end to help get it signed to a label with the contacts I have, if that is what you are looking for.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love that feeling of finishing a track knowing it sounds absolutely amazing. The icing on the cake is when a decent label decides to take the track on too! I have contacts in that field so thats also something to consider when thinking about hiring me!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: If you hire me you can rest assured I put 100% into every piece of Music. Above everything, Songwriting is and always has been my true passion and I take incredible pride in the work I create. Nothing ever gets signed off unless you are 100% happy with the final result, so I don't do revisions. - I happily work on the project until you are completely satisfied :)
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Im assuming this Desert Island has electricity! I would take: 1. My mac 2. My Rokit 5's 3. My Rode NT1-a 4. My Acoustic Guitar 5. Pen and paper for lyrics
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

I started out singing in a choir, then moving on to play Acoustic Guitar and wiritng my own songs. I also played in Heavy Metal bands and Punk Pop bands (one of which were televised a few times) through my youth. I am now 27 so its been a grand total of 16 years so far!
