    Anthony is an amazing producer to work with - he really emphasizes trust between the artist and producer so that we can work without any hesitation. I loved how creative, fun, and inspiring the sessions were. He is my main producer now because of his work style, and ethic.

Interview with Speaker Damage Productions

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I've worked extensively as a Producer/Mixer with an artist named Stefni Valencia - she is quickly rising in the Latin Rock market, and has had quite a few of the songs we worked on together considered for nomination for a Latin Grammy.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: At the moment i'm working on an album of Lo Fi tracks for licensing and playlist pitching!

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: BoomFox Productions. Kris Bradley is absolutely kick ass.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Both. There was a time when one was clearly different than the other, but that time is basically over. it's all just flavors now. It's really a "salt or pepper?" kind of question now.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: I will do everything I can to provide a quality track that you will be proud of.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: The ability to meet so many new and upcoming artists, and be creative with my daily "job".

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Q: Will you work for free/exposure? A: No, but I will consider a part of the royalties or a discounted rate. Q: What do I do once the song is done? A: I can help you with distribution and promotion as well, let's talk after the track is finished! Q: When will the track be finished? A: Depending on the work you're hiring me for, turnaround time is usually 3 days.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: That it's a party 24/7, and no real work is involved - music production is fun, creative and amazing work, but it's still work.

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

  18. A: 1. What's your budget? 2. What is the timeframe for completion of this project? 3. Do you have any reference tracks? 4. Do you have a demo? 5. Dogs or cats?

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Do your homework and pick the producer you honestly feel will be the best for your project - it's easy to let your budget dictate who you work with, and to a certain extent, it has to - but most producers are willing to figure out a way to work with you. Remember that and do what you can to get the best personnel possible involved with your music - it will be completely worth it.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: 1. laptop (Mac or PC - doesn't matter) 2. Audio Technica ATH-M50x headphones 3. Slate VMS 4. Fender 5 string Jazz Bass 5. WATER!

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

  24. A: My career path has been quite winding - I originally began as a musician, touring and recording. I then transitioned into A&R for a while. After that, I decided I wanted to produce, and have been producing for over 10 years.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: My style as producer is a very supportive, but truthful partner in your project. I believe that for any project to be truly successful, the artist - producer dynamic needs to be one of trust. Honesty is key!

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

  28. A: There are a lot of artists I'd like to work with - I think my top 3 would be Anderson .Paak, MGMT, and maybe Foo Fighters. And Ariana Grande, and MGK, and thousand more!

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

  30. A: Use reverb and compression on a buss to make your drums sound HUGE!

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

  32. A: I actually split my time between woking with full rock bands and producing Hip Hop and Pop records; I can produce EDM and have done so, but the vast majority of my work has been in the aforementioned genres.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: My strongest skill is the attention you'll receive as my client - you'll know you're in good hands because I will be there with you all the way until your project is done.

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

  36. A: As a producer, I bring a wealth of knowledge of the small details that make up a given genre - I can produce a song that sounds like it can compete with the heavy hitters on the radio - not one that is good, but "missing something". As a bass player, the same applies - I can bring a sense of finesse to the bass line; if a moment in your track requires a virtuosic "lick", or a moment of pause, I can do this and I know exactly when each is needed.

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

  38. A: I like to get a feel for a potential client with a quick Zoom meeting, then use references the client has provided so I can get the vibe needed for the project. I'll get a preliminary track done, send to the client to make sure I'm on the right track, and adjust if needed.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: Currently I use the Universal Audio Apollo Twin as an interface, and mix with a combination of the Slate Virtual Mix Rack and Waves plugins, along with some UA plugs and others. For projects where an analog feel is called for, I use my Allen & Heath GL2400 console. I have some other gear as well, but these are some of the highlights.

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

  42. A: I'm inspired by professionals in working in different roles - Rick Rubin is a huge inspiration, because he was able to work in two different genres and became an icon in both. As a bass player and musician, I'm inspired by musicians like James Jamerson (Motown), Rocco Prestia (Tower of Power), Nile Rodgers, Daft Punk, and really a thousand more!

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

  44. A: I do a lot of different work for clients, but the majority come to me for music production. After that, I get a lot of requests for bass guitar recording.
