Interview with Patina
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: As a songwriter and singer I think it is powerful to be able to record yourself and to deliver professional vocal stems. I have quite a basic setup, but I am looking forward to upgrade it, when I have enough gigs here on SoundBetter ;-) I am working with Logic Pro X, have a solid Rode NT1-A mic, a Focusrite Scarlett Solo audio interface, a midi keyboard etc. as I also produce my own demos.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop / Indie / Electro Pop
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'm very empathic, intuitive and I think my strongest skill is the ability to connect with the client's vision.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Lots of creativity, a rich and authentic vocal.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Of course first I need to understand what the goal of the project is / what the client needs. When it comes to toplining, I first record an intuition take that gets inspired by the intrumental track. Then, with the first melodic movements that come into my mind, the first lyrics come quite natural also. The crafting of the final lyrics takes some more time, but when I am convinced of the first draft and recorded it, I check in with the client to make sure we're on the same page.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am admiring Sia for her songwriting skills and also for her emotional voice. She has such an interesting biography and she reminds me to never give up. Energy goes where the energy flows.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: At the moment I am toplining a lot for producers who want to complete their songs with great lyrics and a demo vocal for potential artists. The genres vary from 80's / synth pop to EDM or jazzy stuff.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I toplined a jazzy music piece and as it is not my main genre I was surprised about the pleasant result and the great collaboration.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: At the moment I am working on some toplines for various pop and R'n'B tracks for a producer in LA. He plans to pitch those for other artists.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I am learning to produce myself from a great insprational woman here on this platform. Her name is Kris Bradley and she is so down to earth, has a great voice herself and also has a production company called BoomFox Productions.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital - all the possibilites!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise I will give my full focus to your project and keep communication flowing throughout the process.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love collaborating with people from all over the world. It still is surreal to me how many great people I meet through the internet that I wouldn't be able to meet otherwise.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Most common questions are turnaround time and price. Both vary, but my turn around time isn't usually longer than a week or two - depends on my workload of course.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I would say underestimating but at the same time overestimating the work behind it.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I usually ask them what songs and artists inspired the song they're asking me to work on.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: To help guiding the direction, give artist/song examples if you can!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: mic, interface, laptop, acoustic guitar, midi controller
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I was on stages singing and dancing my whole childhood and started writing my first love songs as a teenager after I got my heart broken for the first time. After studying media science and working for several years as a marketing sales manager I found my way back again to my passion for creating music myself and treat this as a business since 2019 now.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Pop and R'n'B influenced, but versatile
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Sia but there are so many inspiring artists out there!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Maping out a skeleton and having a vision in mind which kind of instruments fit the arrangement. Also a reference track really helps for inspiration.
