Interview with Kway KZA

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

  2. A: The most powerful MacBook in the world, first aid kit because safety lol, headphones, Pen and Pad.

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

  4. A: I’ve been doing music most my life, as it’s been a hobby for me, but seriously I would say for the last 3 years, because I’ve taken the craft more seriously, in terms of writing, production, understanding the business behind it too.

  5. Q: How would you describe your style?

  6. A: I would describe it as transparent, gritty, free flowing and vibrant.

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

  8. A: I would love to work with Saba, because I feel like we have similar personalities but also I love how open minded, free flowing and transparent he is with his approach on music, you can tell he really has fun with it but it’s also a healthy outlet for him and I think we would gel well together bouncing back and fourth with ideas.

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

  10. A: Save time and make sure you have your presets ready to go whenever you want to try an idea.

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

  12. A: I usually work on Hip-Hop, RnB, Trap and Neo-Soul.

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: I would say my ear for pockets help me navigate how to best approach a song whether that be cadence wise or writing wise.

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

  16. A: I would say I bring, charisma, dynamism and energy to a song, I approach every song differently depending on the concept and how it makes me feel.

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

  18. A: I love writing to an instrumental because usually I’m able to captivate a feeling, and I never go against it, more time the feeling feels right the first time, then I would come up with a hook, bridge or verse, depending on the structure of the production. Once I have the pieces together, I go over it a few times to see if I like the natural flow and progression of the song, then I execute it when I feel ready to tackle it all.

  19. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  20. A: I have what I would say a basic home set up, it’s listed in my itinerary I hope, and it gets the job done.

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

  22. A: I’m inspired most by J.Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Saba, Isaiah Rashad and IDK, because they express theirselves so transparently but execute it in such a poetic manor, the ability to show their most authentic self, on production it would have to be Ron Gilmore, Robert Glasper and Terrace Martin, because of their soulful element and their ability to bring creatives into their world and align.

  23. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  24. A: I typically do a lot of vocal recording whether it be a verse or a hook, or co-write with other artist who want me to share my POV on approach and execution, I also send out loops for producers and mix Demo’s.

  25. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  26. A: Kente Kwame - A Quarantino Score, came out early last year. I was able to really show my personality on most of the project and the response to my ideas and my approach were very warming, it was the most fun I’ve had during the pandemic, we somehow managed to put a project together despite these turbulent times.

  27. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  28. A: I’m working on my 2nd EP at the moment which is coming along very strong, I’m happy about that and I’ve got a few feature verses that will be dropping this year too.

  29. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  30. A: Not yet, I’ll plug them once we connect.

  31. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  32. A: Both. There’s a lot both can’t do that the other can.

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

  34. A: I will always try my best when I take on a job, I’m not satisfied until you are.

  35. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  36. A: Exploring the wild deaf and craziest ideas that come to mind.

  37. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

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

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

  42. A: What their concept behind the idea is? Their expectation of the song and their expectation of me? What direction they would like me to go in if there’s any specifics? What genre of music is it?

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

  44. A: Nothing is complete until you are fully satisfied, period, revisions will always be free.
