Interview with Alena Simmons
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am new so I am proud of the singing I did onTikTok where I came up with lyrics I think are genious and sang in a mcdonalds bathroom stall. I was so proud of myself afterwards.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Developing my vocals, a few beats, coming up with lyrics.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: No not at the moment.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital cause not only is everything becoming more digital, bur analog sales have dropped alot in 10 to 15 years so why bother with analog. Like physical sales are almost nonexistant anymore
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Always be unique, bribging sonething different and new to the table, with quality as a must.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to sing and share a beautiful talent with the world. Hope someone out there benifits and helps them go through thier day. I get to hear my vocals and know I created that.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: I am newer, but I had one person as me once where I got my glasses from.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest one would be people see singers on tv, on thier playlist, on youtube and think its easy to sing or that they can practice a few lines and go like they don't understand it takes time and like a million things like changing your diet, no parties, vocal practice every day, no yelking, bo whispering, can't do drugs like smoke or drink tgen think singing for a moment you are guarinteed sucess after damaging your vocals. Sucess is not guarinteed its worked hard for. Basically vocals and throat are a complex organs and its not easy just cause you got feel good chemicals or a friend or family member said the vocals were good for mental health that you should run out there. People might hear me and think well they feel that they are or should be more accepted in society, or thier friends group is stronger, or they are a fitter person as a whole, and jystify that as means to say they can sing better than me in a miment with little effort just cause of people being nice to them not saying anything more. Vocals are not the photography world, like you csn't learn steps and directions in a couple of months then run over someone you like or don't like for whatever reason cause te peson who gas spent a very long time developing her sound has actual singing vocals. Theres actually alot to this. On the surface it may look easy, but because most of the hatd work was done and is dine behind the doors, so alk yoy see is whats now not hard for the singer to do, but how you get to that point isn't easy and requires alot of stuff. Most people stop at well I don't get to hang with friends 24/7 or go where ever whenever and don't want to make a durrastic lifestyle change and never get past a week or two of singing.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are you looking to get from this? What do I get that helps me accel forward? What are your thoughts on peoples vocals in general?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Vpcals are unique and fagile, understand vocal development takes a long time to master and everything is taken with great caution when it comes to vocals.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A condencer mic, a dell xps 15, stroopwaffle minis(cause its the best snack and I concider it a piece of gear), tripod for the mic, a great camera for recordi g myself singing.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I was workibg at mcdonalds as my first job and quit due to being treated badly and getting hours cut for no reason. Worked at mcdonals for 3 and a half years. So I am currently job searching. I have always sang since I was a little kid and made family and others cry singing in the bath tub as a little kid. Ihave been working on developing my vocals for two years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Unique, vocal twists, and dynamic range like being able to change how I sound while singing at any time.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I listen to alot of Ariana grande and she has unique vocals that are hard for most to achieve like her high end can get rediculously high. Its definately an art and maybe one day I gwt to meet her.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: A big one people may not know is that you have to eat a certain way, like when the sun goes down don't be eating drinking more than water and trails mix as most foids eaten late produce silent reflux, which is acid reflux that creeps up in your throat when you ate in the middle of sleeping that causes irritation and temporary damage. Can't eat alit of foods abd porportion sizes matter. No tomato, no junk foid, chocolate is a no no, milk and cheese can make your saliva harder to work with in mist people, stay away from consuming high fats all the time, too much salt, too much sugar, no caffine, no drugs or alchahol. Bread is good as it is harder to digest so your body increases moistyre abd saliva in the throat. Fruits like canilope, graps, strawberries. Fruits in general in like a smoothie. Warm or room temp water. Herbal teas. The list goes on and on. Basically your eating lifestyle is usually the biggest thing like if someone has vocal issues its usually just a matter of chainging up what how they eat and drink.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I make sone beats, but I love pop music, it just feels so close to my heart.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is being able to learn something quick and then do it better than most people ever could like when I worked fast food I learned every position and would do it perfectly.
