Interview with Jonah Bobo

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

  2. A: Cohesion and Clarity.

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

  4. A: A fulfilling creative experience that will leave you desperate to get back into the studio to make more music!

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

  6. A: Robert Glasper has always been one of my favorite musicians and composers, and I think an opportunity to work with him would not only be musically enriching beyond my wildest dreams, but also a really fun time because he seems like a hilarious guy.

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

  8. A: I usually begin by meeting and working with the songwriter to get the fullest sense of the song before recording anything. We talk about the potential directions a song can go in and how to best achieve the effects we're going for. Then once the recording begins, it's all about having fun and experimenting; trying to set each song apart by giving it it's own unique character, and infusing that spirit into the recording and process.

  9. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  10. A: All I need you to come with is a melody and lyrics and I can do the rest: help you come up with the chords, arrange the song for whatever instrumentation you want, record all of those instruments, and produce the final product, mixing and all.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: I've got everything you need in my studio -- and whatever I don't have here, I can get for you. I challenge you to find an instrument I can't get on your track.

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

  14. A: I am most inspired by artists who self-produce and track all or most of the instruments for their records on their own. The top of this list for me is my biggest influence and idol, Stevie Wonder. Between 1972 and 1980, he had 6 number one albums, and he played the majority of the instruments on every single track (many of the tracks were entirely recorded by him with no additional players or vocalists). Other artists I look up to who have done similar things include D'Angelo, Kevin Parker of Tame Impala, Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes.
