Interview with Iyashi

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

  2. A: What do you want your song to say? What do you want the listener to think about after hearing your song? What are you trying to inspire listeners to do/feel/think?

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

  4. A: I have been playing and writing for around 12 years. My production experience started to kick in when I started college about 5 years ago.

  5. Q: How would you describe your style?

  6. A: I have a style that very much focuses on combing different things to create something cool and refreshing. I stated above that I feel that nothing is truly original, but I do think expounding on previously done concepts can serve to make something new.

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

  8. A: I think working with BROCKHAMPTON would be the most fun for sure.

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

  10. A: The source is everything. Be diligent and be perceptive of things when tracking or editing. The "fix it in post" mentality can only go so far, and why even spend that time later when you can just solve the issue now?

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

  12. A: My most popular types of work are definitely pop and rock, or any combination of the two. However, I encourage anyone who wants to try something new and different to get in touch with me. I love working on all types of music, and I think my experiences with what I've done can be very helpful and create something very cool in a new musical endeavor or new client's style.

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: My strongest skill is definitely my ability to empathize and understand others' ideas. It's extremely important in songwriting to be able to feel what others are saying and express what they hear in their brain into my playing OR writing OR production.

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

  16. A: I bring a forward thinking attitude to songs in both writing and production. There is no such thing as "original" in my eyes, but I do think there are ways to really perk listeners' ears up that may be less conventional. At the end of the day, if you have a crazy idea, you'll never know if it's good or not until you try it. After playing many different styles of music at college, I also bring a versatility to your music that I think is unique. I just like to have fun, because in my experience, the way you feel during the process of making music can reflect into the music you make.

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: My setup is very modest, but I've always believed that less is more; and that means when given even more resources, the possibilities are endless. I work off of a custom PC build, Apollo Twin X interface, Studio One, and Adam Audio/KRK monitor system. My guitar and bass work is spearheaded by my Hughes & Kettner amp and Neural DSP plugins. Everything else is fueled by various VST's such as Serum, Arcade, and Arturia plug-ins. For vocal recording, I use my WARM 87 microphone in an insulated/dampened booth.

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

  20. A: I am most inspired by Incubus, Kero Kero Bonito, BROCKHAMPTON, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rise Against and many pop artists such as Carly Rae Jepsen, The Weeknd, and Young The Giant.

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

  22. A: My most common work is Songwriting, Performance, and Production. I enjoy producing, but my writing and performance work are my most common requests.
