Interview with Dan Berk
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My "promise" to my clients is to treat every project as if it were my own. I only take on projects that I believe in, so I invest the best of my time and talent into the projects and people that I partner with. I always am honest with my clients because I care more about the song being the best it can possibly be then just rushing through something to get it done.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The music. Singing and music makes me feel whole. It's an indescribable feeling. Also, the collaborative process to creating music is always so inspiring and fulfilling for me.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How much my services cost, and every project is completely unique so it varies. Reach out and let's get a conversation going!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Make sure you're 100% comfortable with the provider and confident in their abilities. Don't be pressured into a project or partnership that you don't feel good about.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is definitely my voice. I really feel that I have a very unique/special quality to my voice and it's very commercially sound. I am also a very emotional singer and I think that really cuts through on all my records. All of my recordings are very dynamic.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring interpretation, tone and experience to a song. What I bring is a seasoned point of view, a lot of talent/hard work, and the ability to help you get to that next level you always wanted to reach.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For a vocal session, the first thing I work on is the topline. I record all vocal parts to really get a sense for the track (doubles/triples, harmonies, octaves, ad libs) to provide plenty of material for the producer to be able to pick through, stack, and layer as they feel best. I work with an incredible engineer/producer that helps all the projects really come to life. We Melodyne everything on our end to ensure the highest quality of vocal possible. My engineer will then make a reference mix to send over and give an idea of what the finished product could sound like. Once the project is marked complete, you'll have edited, radio-quality, clean/dry vocal stems sent to you that are ready to be dropped straight into the project!
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My demo work for a NYC songwriter called Mr. Sterling Fox. I demoed vocals for him and it was a really amazing experience because I got an inside look at the songwriting process and realized that I really enjoyed this type of work!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: It's very soulful and pop driven. It also has elements of acoustic singer/songwriter vibes.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: John Legend because he's such a role model and his level of musicality is like no other.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, EDM/House, R&B/Soul, Acoustic.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work at 2 different professional studios in NYC, so I'm incredibly fortunate to have access to top of the line gear.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Tori Kelly, Ariana Grande, Sam Smith, John Legend, John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Carrie Underwood, Bruno Mars.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Tons of Pop/Acoustic/Cover topline & session vocals, and demoing vocals for other artists and commercials. I also work with music jingle houses in NYC.
