Interview with iszy

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

  2. A: I'm currently writing songs and adding them to my song bank for sale or on hold for a future country album.

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

  4. A: I love being able to hear different projects and getting to be apart of a community that encourages diversity.

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

  6. A: What is your writing process like? I usually force myself to sit in my music room and talk to myself until I write the first two lines. Then I can just tell the story. I let my emotions take the wheel at that point.

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

  8. A: What sound are you looking for? What emotions do you want to bring out or highlight?

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

  10. A: I would advise customers that I am extremely laid back and I absolutely love constructive criticism, so PLEASE give it when you can!

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

  12. A: I would bring my ukuele (island vibes), my guitar (so I can finally find the time to learn it more extensively), my phone to write lyrics and record, and my capo!

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

  14. A: I started out on YouTube as a singer/songwriter when I was 16. My fanbase then grew and I went through many changes throughout my life causing me to go on a hiatus until I was 19. I began writing again and decided that it was what I loved. I have geared my writing towards country music because it allows me to tell a story and speak to the listeners about my experience. It's really helped me open up my mind to new songwriting horizons.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: I am a mixture of country, pop and urban. I love to mix sounds and genres when I get the chance.

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

  18. A: Always play your song on repeat so you can hear every little detail you may have missed during production.

  19. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  20. A: I have great communication skills and love to work on different projects.

  21. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  22. A: Blue Yeti Mic and Garageband.

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

  24. A: Toplining, harmonies, vocals, hooks, and songwriting.

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

  26. A: Tori Kelly, Meaghan Trainor, Dan+Shay, Maren Morris, and Kelsea Ballerini.

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

  28. A: Country and Pop.

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

  30. A: I prefer talking over Skype or Facetime about your needs for your song. I would also write down details you want included in the song and send you over samples of the song for your personal revision.

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

  32. A: I bring originality and honesty to my songs that I write. I infuse real emotion and stories together to create a song that can make an audience feel connected to it.

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

  34. A: I would love to work with Kelsea Ballerini or Maren Morris because their songs always inspire me. I would love to know their writing inspiration and process.

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

  36. A: People think that country music is all about tractors and corn fields. It's not. The beauty about country music is telling a story about something that feels pure and real to you. It's about being in a world without social media and all this craziness that the world provides.

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

  38. A: I promise to make a song that you will love! If you don't love it, I'll give you your money back!

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

  40. A: I have had the privilege to work with many talented artists who I am proud to call my friends. I've had Bea Go on my first EP doing harmonies and backing vocals and we've written songs together. My best friend Amanda Yang and I are constantly writing and singing. We make the best duo. There are many more talented artists i've worked with but those two top the list!
