Ned Greenough on SoundBetter

Hello! I'm a solo artist, producer and award-winning songwriter. I love working one-on-one with people to find the exact sound they're looking for and getting extra creative in the writing process. If your track feels like it's missing something, I can surely fill that void. Let's work together!

I offer unique and artistically driven songwriting with specialties in all things rock. I strive for emotional driven music and lyrics, oftentimes revolving around some sort of story or narrative. Outside of my own writing, I've worked on all sorts of genres of music, from pop to punk and folk to fusion, as both a producer and songwriter.

If you need any sort of piano, organ, synthesizer, keyboard, or electric piano, on your track, I'm your guy! I'm very familiar with the nuances of each instrument and have been playing my entire life. There's nothing I love more than adding tasteful keys to any song you'd need them for.

As a producer, I can guarantee I can bring something unique to the table. So much of music today has started following the same trends and tropes, and it can be difficult to find something that stands out. I can ensure that our collaboration can create something that will help you stand out from the rest!

Feel free to contact me with any questions. I always love to get to know my clients and establish real connection with them to ensure great work. Looking forward to working with you!

Interview with Ned Greenough

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

  2. A: I produced Lydia von Hof's "Find Me There." It's an incredibly catchy tune and she was a blast to work with. It's songs like that make me really proud of what I do.

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

  4. A: Uniqueness in sound and a friendly face!

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

  6. A: I get to work on writing music everyday, what's not to love!

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

  8. A: A lot of people will ask how I write music or how it comes to me. And I don't really have an answer to it. All I can say is keep practicing and writing music. Every song is a good song if it helps you grow!

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

  10. A: It takes time and hard work. People think music is just kinda made overnight and poof you're a star. Every detail is agonized over and thought about. There are no accidents!

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

  12. A: What's your vision for this song? Why is it being released? What kind of instrumentation do you envision for it? What are your goals after release?

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

  14. A: The more details the better! Tell me as much as you wish about the track and your vision for it. The more I know, the better!

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

  16. A: I've been doing this for over 6 years now but am fairly new to Soundbetter. Looking forward to loving the platform!

  17. Q: How would you describe your style?

  18. A: I have a lot of influences all over the place. Somewhere between 1970's era Genesis and the pop rock style of R.E.M.

  19. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  20. A: I have a couple keyboards including a V-Combo-VR730, some presonus monitors, a plethora of microphones that can be used for instrumentation or vocals, and way too many plugins that emulate all sorts of brilliantly sounding classic keyboards and synthesizers.

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

  22. A: I'm currently finishing up another studio album of my own.

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

  24. A: Yes! Mount Olympia Mastering is fantastic. When your song needs mastering, go talk to Adam!

  25. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  26. A: Digital. It's much easier to edit in your DAW than cut tape.

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

  28. A: Probably a piano and some pen and paper. Sounds like a dream.

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

  30. A: As I mentioned before, I'm a huge Steven Wilson fanboy so that would probably have to be my answer.

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

  32. A: Record good demos! The demoing phase is REALLY important because it'll make your life so much easier when it comes time to prepare and record. The better your demo is, the better I can understand the sound you're going for.

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

  34. A: It depends. Recently it seems to be a lot more folk and progressive rock. They are all unique in their own speacial way.

  35. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  36. A: I'm a very communicative and easygoing person. Sharing music is a very vulnerable thing and can be difficult working with others if you're not used to it. That's why I stress relationships and connections so much. I want to know where YOU are coming from in your song. And the best way to do that is to establish a good connection and be open with you.

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

  38. A: I think I bring in another angle. It's easy to get attached to a piece of music and begin to overlook things that you wouldn't think to overlook in songwriting. I love to look at a song and think "what can take this up a level?" or "what is this missing?". It's all about keeping it fresh and interesting.

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

  40. A: For songwriting, I'm a big believer of music first so the lyrics can be tailored to fit it. I work very diligently and love to brainstorm as I go, thinking of lyrical themes that may fit different verses and so on. When it comes to playing, I like to improvise until I find something interesting that sticks and start working off of that.

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

  42. A: I'm a huge fan of Steven Wilson. Not only is he a fantastic musician, but he is an incredibly talented writer and producer. Everything he does is absolutely phenomenal.

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

  44. A: It's a mix really! If I had to choose, it's oftentimes some keyboard parts here and there or help with songwriting.
