Interview with Studio 222 Recording
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently, I'm working on my acoustic EP!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Either one. Digital is becoming more common and rivaling analog. Not one is better than the other, however. Both have their own unique benefits and sounds. It just matters how you craft with the tools at your disposal and what sound you want to achieve.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Structure and energy! Every song is unique so you need to treat them in different ways. Often times, the structure and transitions are weak points of songs. For some reason, they become after thoughts with many people when they should be some of the strongest parts of a song. It's like a bond between molecules except with chorus, verses, etc.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Brew a cup of coffee and hit the computer. Focus on one project then move to the next. I will say though, sometimes flip flopping projects doesn't hurt. You may figure out a different technique to use in another project that you may have not discovered with just one project.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: A modern, simple, yet, efficient setup. Multiple monitors with 7 different ways to cross check mix translation.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: There's so many to choose from! My first ever influence was Richie Blackmore (guitarist: Deep Purple, Rainbow, Blackmore's Night). After being raised on classic influences, I graduated to modern metal, Avenged Sevenfold being the gateway to even heavier genres. As of recent (year or so), I have found myself loving the mixes from Nolly GetGood, Eyal Levi, Henrik Udd, Andrew Wade, and Jordan Valeriote. There's plenty more, but those are the one's that come to mind right now. For musicians, Aaron Marshall is my favorite guitar player followed by Tosin Abasi. Again, so many more, but those are the two that come to mind right now. My favorite rappers: Kendrick Lamar, Royce, J. Cole, and of course, Eminem. Again, so many...
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: My mainstays include: mixing, mastering, editing, and vocal tuning. Without a doubt, these are the most requested services from my clients.
