Jason Pilling

Session Musician and Producer

Jason Pilling on SoundBetter

Ego free singer-songwriter eager to collaborate on your project. I like to make indie-folk with a touch of jazz, prog, and sometimes rock. I'm good at mucking around with ideas to produce an interesting twist to level up the production. Offering all-in full collaboration deals for compatible artists, or just tracking as needed.

I've recorded 30 songs of my own. I self-engineer tracks in my home studio with good quality gear. I'm not a grizzled veteran of 100's of sessions, but I know how to get a good recording from my voice, and my instruments, in my room.

I'm friendly, reliable, and business-like. If you send me a proposal, I'll respond...no ghosting. I'll produce a high quality track, clean output, edited without any pops or clicks, and I'll do in within the timeline I said I would.

I've got a variety of high quality instruments to give tone options that are suitable for your song. Multiple guitars, fretted and fretless bass, banjitar, ukelele, analog synth, and my vocal range are all on the menu.

My "Producer" offer is a single price for a full collaboration on a song. A full collab deal is at my discretion, and it's dependent on being compatible as artists. If agreed, this means I'll do whatever it takes to finish the song under your leadership. Your fee buys all my tracks and my publishing rights, and you'll own the final result. However, I'd like to be credited.

If not a full collab, then my prices are by the track. Base level assumes I need to put a little bit of compositional creativity into it, or I'll play what you ask. I don't do guitar solos - get a specialist for that.

Interview with Jason Pilling

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

  2. A: Solo songs with multiple collaborators.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: A real pre-amp and top quality interface. I think everything else can be digital.

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

  6. A: If you want pure hits and booming sub, I'm probably not the right person. I like to connect with lyrics and enhance the emotions of a meaningful song.

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

  8. A: Part-time musician off and on during school and during day-job years. Full-time music since 2020 and committed to growing as a business and an artist.

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

  10. A: Knowing how to use the gear you have is better than constantly buying more gear.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Bass among specific instruments. Arrangements in general.

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

  14. A: creativity and experimentation

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

  16. A: I experiment for a while and record when it's settles into something good.

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: I have a one room studio, acoustically treated for quality tracking of vocals and acoustic instruments. I usually record electric guitars through a cab-simulator. I have one good channel, but I generally rely on plug-ins instead of a rack of gear.

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

  20. A: anyone who experiments with different sounds and combinations of instruments, but usually within the setting of a relatively simple song.

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

  22. A: serve the song
