    Studio Providence is a great space for music making, recording and creativity. Top notch gear and pro attitude of its owner will make you feel good about your choice right away.

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

  24. A: I started playing guitar at the age of 6 and piano around 9. I moved away from my native France to London for five years, to pursue music as a career. I studied at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London. Graduated three years (Bachelor of Music Degree as a session guitarist). After some time I drifted away to the music production side of things and recorded / produced my first album (Orava - Behind the Wave) between France and England throughout three years. In the meantime, I got a job as an assistant at Soup Studio (London). This is where I learned most of my recording / mixing skills. After the COVID crisis I had to go back to Paris, where I opened my own recording studio (Studio Providence) in January 2021.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: Alternative!

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

  28. A: Phoenix! A French band that earned international success with their albums as much as their shows. I love the way they blend acoustic and electronic instruments in their songs. Their melodies are great as well.

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

  30. A: Get in touch directly with your listeners, do not focus to much on the "100" promo" type of stuff.

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

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

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

  36. A: A professional sound and balance. A technical and creative added value brought by my years of experience as a producer and recording artist. I have also released my first album (Orava - Behind the Wave) in November 2020, which was all self-produced.

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

  38. A: I like working with the artist / client as much as I can. Getting all the instructions he has in his head to get as close as possible from the actual result he was expecting.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: My studio is a mix of analog and digital gear. Throughout the years, I acquired varied types of instruments from various ears. I like the warmth of vintage synthesisers as much as the strength a today's Vsts and the possibilities they offer as a creative tool. My studio was built as a mastering studio in the 1980s. I started running this place a bit less than a year ago. (January 2020). Overall, it is a professional equipped space that would suit most kind of requests in terms of quality delivery.

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

  42. A: I am very inspired by producers and sound engineers that became inherent members of the bands that hired them. It shows how much of a positive impact an external ear can have on a project. People like Philippe Zdar, Rick Rubin or Andrew Watt.

  44. A: I have 4 different types of services. Recording, Production, Mixing and Mastering. My most common type of mission equally be one of this four tasks.
