Interview with Brett Aaron Hammond
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A uniue quality is what I like to bring to a song. I love finding ways the melody carries the message of the lyric. Molding the sonic qualities of the instruments around the vocal to deliver an indisputable sound to the listener.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am lucky enough to have met and have as good friends many talented musicians that are a simple message away from joining in the fun, covering just about every instrument and great vocalists. I have been inspired by many great producers, Butch Vig, Rick Rubin, Bob Clearmountain, and Neil Dorfsman, they have all been inspirational.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I primarily mix and master for my clients remotely. I usually have several zoom meetings or enough to make sure that we are on the same page and we feel comfortable moving to the next stage of the project.
