    Anna provided me with a wonderful track for "Gravity" by Sara Bareilles for an upcoming talent showcase. I can't wait to use the track for the performance, and I'm excited that it has a very professional quality.

    Anna was very responsive and had a quick turnaround time for the track and any revisions, and I would love to work with her again :)

Interview with Anna Yarbrough

Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Yes! If you need guitar/mixing work, hit up Rowan Garmon. He's the best.
Can you share one music production tip?
Listen to what your song has too much of, rather than not enough of - it's easy to overload your mix by constantly pushing everything up, when often there's just something too prominent in the first place.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
Quality!
What's your strongest skill?
Technique. I have worked hard to really refine the technical aspects of my playing in a large number of styles. It lends a real advantage to this line of work, where quality is so important and everything is time-quantized - it's essential to authentic-sounding tracks that flow.
What type of music do you usually work on?
When it comes to playing piano/tracking keys, I work all over the board - there is usually a lot of variety in what I do! My main areas of expertise include classical and contemporary piano, pop, and singer-songwriter. When it comes to songwriting (especially for myself!), I'm most often working in the Americana/singer-songwriter and electro/alt-pop genres.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Paul Simon, John Mayer, Ryan Tedder, Jason Isbell, Banks, Joy Williams, The Allman Brothers Band
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
I would love to work with Ryan Tedder, frontman of One Republic. I love his versatility, and greatly admire his ability to deliver a strong story so succinctly. He has a gift for honing a song to its greatest potential.
