Interview with Babalola
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am extremely proud of my band, The White Noise Supremacists. I do everything down to the booking and graphic design on my own. That project is my sole creative expression and it's been awesome to make exactly the kind of music I want to make and have it take me around the world and help pay my bills (Sometimes, lol.)
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Writing, Producing and performing The White Noise Supremacists debut album "The Scene is Dead"
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. They both have their pluses and minuses. I am not an audio purist and digital music has allowed me a great deal of flexibility and ability to self teach. For an indie, diy musician, without digital, I wouldn't be here.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Great product delivered on schedule.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Creating. Hearing what's in your head played out in a room.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That only males can do it.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Depends on the project. But I always aim to get a clear idea of what the client wants and what "feel" they are going for.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be as clear as possible in describing what you want. If it's unclear, provide as many links to clips of samples and ideas as possible. Always be respectful and communicative.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: My goal was always to be a recording artist who writes and produces for other artists as well. I have been writing and producing for almost 20 years. 12 years professionally.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Minimalist with a pop influence who can appreciate a wall of sound.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Build a strong foundation. Don't "improve" a song by adding a lot of bells, whistles and flourishes. If it is not an interesting song with only vocals and one other instrument, the song is weak and the skeleton of the song needs to be improved.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on indie rock, punk, and folk/singer-songwriter stuff. Also composing film music. But any genre is possible for me to work on.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Words, melody, singing, producing and songwriting. They come to me incredibly easily. I also am very good at self editing and building song dynamics. Knowing when NOT to is very important in building an emotional impact in a song.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Great ears and great ideas. A desire to experiment and challenge a listener.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Missy Elliott is a great producer.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Session vocals, Top line writing, lyric writing, beat making and instrumental track production.
