Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Machine Head. I love the timbral intricacy that every section of their music offers. Really mellow and intimate, to stadium sized rock show.
Can you share one music production tip?
Don't lie to your recording artist. Always be critical (and polite!) of what you're recording and if something sounds off just say it.
What do you like most about your job?
I get to contribute to the most beautiful art form in the world.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
That it's not needed. Proper recording techniques and knowledge, good mixing practices; that's indispensable in music.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
I ask to skype or come to a practice so I can listen to the music first. I think it's important to be able to describe your style using three bands and have you fall right between them. My first track is always free, it's a "I can take your music seriously and respect it" - Then we go from there...
