My job is to help to make your song the best it can be through the parts that I add.
I have been working as a session musician since 2005. After working in a variety of studios with clients in person (and continuing to do so), I decided to make my services available to remote clients as well with my own studio. I do a lot of live work too, but I find studio work the most rewarding: being part of that creative process and watching someone light up as their music comes to life.
The styles I get called for the most are (in no specific order): pop, country, americana, various styles of rock, funk, R&B, children's music, hip hop, contemporary Christian music.

Interview with Tyson Sheth
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Creating something.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I like to know about their influences. If a song has programmed stand-in drums, I like to know how married they are to those parts (and it's totally ok if you are!). If there will be other instruments added later that I won't hear while I'm tracking, I like to know as much as I can about that vision. In cases when there is a score of horn or string parts, I like to see those too.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don't be afraid to express your ideas in any way. I love having audio references, groove examples, written descriptions, anything to get the ideas across. That is the best way to end up with exactly what you want.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I began my career in music as a studio intern at SugarHill Recording Studios. About 15 years ago, I started transitioning from the engineering side to the performing side and have been there ever since.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I can change gears easily and not look back. I tend to not get attached to drum parts, patterns, styles, or sounds. If I'm asked to try something completely different, that's not a problem.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: In tracking live drums, I try to lay a solid foundation for the rest of the music to sit on. I also try to come up with little "hooky" things, maybe some ear candy, that doesn't get in the way of the song.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I typically start with a short conversation with the artist/client, followed by receiving a demo or a mix of what I would track with. If there is a chart or any written parts or rhythmic figures, I appreciate that as well. Usually a more detailed dialogue would follow regarding specific sounds and parts, along with addressing any questions on my end. Armed with the necessary information and all the proper files, I can get to the recording.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am inspired by musicians who do what I do at the highest level: people such as Jeff Porcaro, Vinnie Colaiuta, Todd Sucherman, Ash Soan, and many others.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Typically, I add live drums and/or live percussion to songs. The songs vary in stages of completion from just a scratch guitar and vocal to a fully produced song just awaiting live drums. I either reproduce a drum part already composed for me by the client, compose a part myself, or something in between.
