    My first thought was that Richard’s vocal sounded like a final record. His voice is clearly incredible and unique but he interpreted the song so well and made excellent, subtle decisions in phrasing and timing, while always being controlled and on-pitch. I’m not used to vocals being delivered with this level of quality. Everyone has commented on how good the vocals are. It’s worth quoting one message - “We both had tears in our eyes and hugged each other, the rendering is so moving”. Thanks!

    When it comes to Richard's abilities I won't give my opinion or pontificate. I state facts - the guy is next level.

    He has the whole trinity of qualities I look for in a singer.
    Tuning, Tone and Timing. It's rare that a singer possesses all three.

    Richard owns every vocal he does and lyrically he's a demon.

    Richard is an incredible singer, he has soul, technique and passion in abundance. What makes him really stand out is his ability to capture the emotion of the lyric. I spent a lot of time on the lyrical phrasing of our last project and I assumed that when I hired a singer online I would have to go back and forth a few times to make sure the phrasing was right on, no revisions needed with Richard, nailed first time and doubled perfectly. Extremely prompt and a pleasure to work with.

    Working with Richard was amazing. After trying to work with other singers, and not satisfied with the results... and almost reaching the budget... I decided to try one last time with him. And since the first second he became singing, I got shocked !! His voice is incredibly powerful, but nice to listen as well as the same time. And he gave a lot of feeling to the vocals, also the cool atmosphere I was looking for !! I could not have found and worked with a better singer for my last song.

    It has been a great pleasure working with Richard, who is an award winning blues singer in Europe. He was very patient in providing me with retakes as the vision of my song continued to develop during production. He is extremely well versed in the technical aspects of recording, and gave me great sounding tracks. Great communication.

Interview with Richard Farrell

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

  2. A: I am a vocalist and songwriter, so I really embrace giving all I have when singing and writing songs. I really focus in on the small details, intonation, timbre, melody and lyrics, this where I'm most at home. With years of experience recording in studios and playing in various different outfits I am very adaptable and open minded.

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

  4. A: Singers like Ray Charles, Toma Waits, Nina Simone, BB King and Nat King Cole are some of my favourites. Modern day producers and musicians such as Quantic, The Dap Kings, Jon Hopkins and Dan Auerbach really inspire me.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I have a Mac book pro 15 inch Retina which I use Pro tools and a Focusrite 6i6 as my preamp. A shure SM7 is my go to microphone as it suits my voice best, I have other mics such as a Rode NTK and Behringer AT2020. I have vocal screen and pop shield to create clear recordings.

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

  8. A: Listen to the track on repeat until I have an understanding of the flow and meter of it. After absorbing it, I allow melodies to flow through me, letting my vocal chords loose and seeing where the sound takes me. I demo the track a few times depending on how happy I am with the melody/lyrics. After this process I am ready to record the track. There are many different routes I can take depending on the wishes of the client and his/her influences to give me guidance.

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

  10. A: Clarity, small details, soul and warmth. I try to bring the best qualities of blues and soul to any song I work with.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Listening to the client, vocal intonation and performance.

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

  14. A: Blues, soul, folk, electronic, hiphop and jazz music.

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

  16. A: If it feels good, and the ambience is right, keep it!

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

  18. A: Bill Withers, a master of simplicity and soulfulness!

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: Simple, understated, warm and gutsy.

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

  22. A: I have been singing since I can remember. I began playing the piano from age 6. I started formally singing in a choir when I was 8 and received 5 years of music education in the choir school in theory, singing and piano which set me for life. I am 32 now, so I have been at it over 26 years now!

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

  24. A: A guitar, piano, a Ray Charles and BB King records, a bottle of whiskey and a note pad.

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

  26. A: Listen to the intention behind the voice, many voices have a clear and clean exterior but sometimes the singer does not bring the force of the subject matter/message into the music. I really live what I'm singing!

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

  28. A: What is the overall message of your music? Why are you doing it?

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

  30. A: The true message behind the voice.....

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

  32. A: When can you have the track ready? That depends on how much guidance you give me, or lee way to be creative. Influences, bar numbers, vocals guides etc...

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

  34. A: Being able to work with different musicians, songwriters and producers form all around the world. Being able to express my self in an art form which comes very naturally to me.

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

  36. A: Soulfulness, warmth, guts and attention to detail.

  37. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  38. A: Both. Analog definitely has a warmer and softer sound, it reacts in a natural way to what you put into it. It's definitely not as portable as digital equipment, as easy to set up or quick in finding new and interesting plugins, virtual instruments etc...

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

  40. A: Trainman Blues. A modern day blues project with hiphop production techniques and understated laid back feel.

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

  42. A: Trainman Blues. Singer and Songwriter. I am in love with Blues music and I think it's affect on modern and old music is immense. I would love to see a revival of blues. Soul and jazz music have progressed into new and interesting forms, I think this is possible with blues.
