Interview with Elijah Gaynor
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Freedom of creativity and connections.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: You can’t polish a turd. If you have a bad recording with bad takes. No amount of mixing can fix that.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Help me help you. You already love what you’re creating. Let me take it a step further and create an unforgettable sound.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always have more than one body on a project. Your song might be good but you need someone to help you think outside the box.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I love rock. I always have and always will. Big guitars, big drums. It’s my favorite to work on
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I can mix the largest drums you will hear in today’s music. I’ve taken every artist or drummers sound that I love and tried to maximize on each part.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I believe in these days many albums that are released sound too over produced. There’s not much as far as organic sounds go anymore. I believe music is meant to give power to the listener. and for that to happen It should sound huge and raw and real.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I always begin with the rough mix. Listen to the song as a whole before I begin making changes. I want to know how the artist invisions their song or album and work from there. I then begin with a static mix of drums, bass and vocals. And build my mix around that.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am inspired by Aaron Gillespie of underoath. They’ve been a huge part of my journey. I believe Andrew Scheps is one of the most creative mix engineers out there, and I take note of a lot that he does.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I’ve mostly produced and mixed projects. I. Also an experienced session drummer for those who do not have the ability to track or get quality REAL drums.
