  18. A: Sydney Simpson is the best vocalist I have ever. worked with.

  19. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  30. A: Be upfront and honest about what you want and your expectations, don't be afraid to tell me that I didn't do something the way you wanted. Your music is your art, and I want to help make it sound the way you intended for it to sound.

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

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

  40. A: I like to receive rough demos, and songs that inspired the idea, examples of works that the artist wants it to sound similar to. Then I will create a rough idea and start communicating back and forth during the process of building the song.
