Interview with Daniel Franklin

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

  2. A: Lately I've been focused most on Jazz charts and rock songs. I enjoy playing covers and adding my own interpretation of the chart.

  3. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  4. A: Creativity. If the first beat works, I'll think of 3-4 more just to add some spice and play with the rhythm of the song.

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

  6. A: For singer-song writers, learning and understanding the lyrics are a big part of how I work. I believe the lyrics shape the tone of the song and inform my playing style.

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

  8. A: I'm a huge fan of Benny Greb and his ability to "speak" through his drums. He can sound musical even when playing by himself.
