2 ReviewsEndorse Maisie May
Incredible talent and very fast worker, took my song ideas, beat, and sketches and wrote beautiful topline melodies. Was very impressed by her lyricism and tone.
Maisie is amazing!! I recently had her do some harmonies and additional production on a track of mine. She went above and beyond and was super communicative through the entire experience. Definitely elevated the track.
Interview with Maisie May
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work at two different locations in Brooklyn, NY. I have a home-studio set up at my apartment in Williamsburg, and I also share a studio space in Bushwick. It is a shipping container that has been converted into a really cool artist space! I have my gear split between both places.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am proud of the 4 singles I released in 2020. It was a hectic year on all fronts, but I didn't let it stop my creative flow. I wrote, sang, and produced on all 4 tracks and I couldn't be prouder of the progress I made throughout the year. I can't wait to learn/grow more through the music I make in the future.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am currently working on releasing my first EP under my artist name, Maisie May! It's going to be called "Face it," and it should be done by early 2021.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Brandon Tong is an incredible producer and mixer. We frequently collaborate on projects and I would recommend him to anyone who wants help with production/recording/mixing!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both! Analog for the uniquity and digital for the ubiquity : )
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that I will do everything I can to fulfill your wishes, answer your questions and most importantly I will exert my passion into every job I do for you!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love using my talents to create unique/glistening soundscapes. Nothing lights my fire more that making something that I genuinely enjoy listening to!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What inspired their project? What artists are they hoping to sound like?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don't be afraid to ask questions and give me critiques! I want all of my clients to be happy <3
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Music has excited me in so many different ways throughout my life, and I always knew it was something I wanted to pursue. I have been singing and performing since I can remember, and when I downloaded Logic Pro X when I was 15 my enthusiasm for music grew exponentially. I dropped out of highschool to focus on music and went to the New School for Contemporary Music 2 years later. It was 2018 when I first started to shape my own sound as a producer and songwriter. This boost of inspiration is what led me to releasing music under my current artist name, Maisie May.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Caroline Polachek! Her career path and current project is so inspiring. I think she's really doing something special with her first solo album, "Pang."
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't be afraid to change up your order of doing things! (ex. try recording/programming drums last if you normally do them first) Sometimes that is how I make the most exciting/unique music :)
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on indie dream-pop/synth-pop music, but I look forward to exploring other genres! I think that the soft indie voice that I use on my personal tracks could blend really well with other genres like rap/techno as well.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Making memorable top lines, and harmonies to accompany them.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: If I am singing, I will bring glossy vocals accompanied by beautiful harmonies. If I am producing, I will bring a bubbly and dreamy soundscape to the track.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When I am working on a personal project, I am usually doing all musical aspects at a time: my writing inspires my production, which inspires my vocal performance of each track. It's really fun to let all three aspects of songwriting feed off of each other. If I am only working on one aspect of someone's track, (i.e. vocal recording) I like to treat it more as a professional studio session. I spend time warming up my vocals, keep hot tea by my side and take my time with each recording.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Caroline Polachek, Soccer Mommy, Ok Lou, Clairo, Okay Kaya and mannnny more incredible women<3
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Vocal recording and producing!
