Interview with Dr. C. (Terry Campbell)

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Digital, because you can hone and modify your creations. For me the digital work is a workshop filled with amazing opportunities. However, I love acoustic sound, just using the digital work to capture them.

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

  4. A: If they do not like what I have done... there is no charge. I want people to be totally happy with my efforts and art.

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

  6. A: Simple, what do you want? What is the target audience for your music?

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

  10. A: My acoustic guitar, accordion, ukulele, flute, and my favorite girl singer, my wife.

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

  12. A: I have always been a musician... It was my first vocation. So I made money doing gigs and worked my way through college. I have toured with lot people and on my own. I taught music in the public schools and now continue to do lots of shows every week.

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

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

  18. A: Learn something from everyone you encounter and be open to new pathways and discoveries.

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

  20. A: I find myself working on singer songwriter material... sometimes this becomes more jazz, or more pop and sometimes more country. I really don't like the idea of specific genre but rather what the song demands.

  21. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  22. A: My wife would say my voice, or my live bass playing. However, I love the piano. Music has been such a gift and has taken me so many places, I am not sure which would be my strongest.

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

  24. A: My heart and soul, years of experience and listening and learning from others. I have a love for the variety of musical styles that fill my life and try to find the soul and quality in each one. There is a magic that can be captured given the right amount of openness and inspiration. I strive to find that magic.

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

  26. A: Getting to work on a new piece, I try to understand the place where it is coming from. What is the message trying to be expressed? What is the emotion, the mood, the spirit that must emerge from this piece. I play with a new song, on guitar, or piano, or accordion, and try and find how it speaks to me. I try and discover what I can do to make a piece come to life.

  27. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  28. A: My DAW is Logic X with the most current updates. I augment this with the use of Melodyne and WAV studio effects. I have great acoustic instruments including ukuleles, banjos, classic and flattop guitars, Les Paul electric guitar, great Gibson Ripper bass, and a classic 80 year old accordion. This is my art, and this is my love.

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

  30. A: Both my mom and dad played on live radio, so I grew up with music. As a kid I played in a rock band in high school and then went on to live in Nashville and played in various traveling shows including Roy Clark's band, LeRoy VanDykes band, and the Stamps Quartet. I have a B.M.E from the University of Nebraska and a Masters and Doctorate from Kansas State University. Lot of musical experiences all my life and now my wife and I are doing shows in the Portland Oregon area.
