Interview with Joe Knott
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Frank Ocean, mainly because he is very genuine, is fresh in his lyrical and melodic approach and overall extremely talented.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: To get out of writer's block, do something different, gather your inspiration from somewhere you wouldn't usually look, try different methods of creative flow, like free form writing etc.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Typically I am working on my own music, of which I have a large back catalogue of waiting to be polished. My current solo style is of an R&B/Soul/Pop direction.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Inflection of singing to convey a particular mood, there is a very high degree of importance on how to deliver a line that can change how the message is received, two identical lines sung with different inflection can often make or break the intent.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I come from the idea of having a very personal aspect to each song, I don't appreciate a value in songs with no intent behind them.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I work starting out with a jamming process, if there is already a central theme agreed upon, or that jumped out, I will head in that direction to create a cohesive narrative based flow. Usually at first a small idea is found for either a hook or a verse etc, then expanded upon.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: A modest home recording set up, I use an AKG C414 XLII for recording rough ideas and fleshing out my own home demos.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: James Blake, Frank Ocean, John Mayer, an ever-changing list.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Combination of top-line melody writing, lyrical, and usually featuring vocalist. I work together closely with any intent that the artist already has in mind and use an involved collaborative approach.
