Interview with BADtheProducer
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Client work, my own personal projects, you know...music stuff obviously!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: That's a tough one since my clientele is so diverse! I will say this though...whatever you're looking for I'm sure SoundBetter has the music professional for you!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digi-log because a creative blend of the two yields the best results in my opinion.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I, Bradley Denham, promise if you hire me that I will never disappoint and will always leave you ecstatic with my results!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That it's not really a job...music is a lifestyle!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Can you do 'xyz'? I can do that!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: No I don't click in notes with a mouse and keyboard on a cracked version of Fruity Loops!!! GAHH, that's not a true "music producer". Let me ask you this...how can you make music if you don't know how to play an instrument? Or sing at least?
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Why do you make music? What can I have the pleasure of helping you with? Are you ready to rock? I am, let's do this!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: If there is even the slightest shred of doubt in your mind, chill. Talk is free so please feel free to shoot me an email and I'll respond as quickly as I can!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Hmm, if it's a desert island it doesn't matter what you take if you don't have any power...just sayin'
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Well it started with a gift from my great grandmother, a laptop for "school" (ahaha diabolical laugh), and a father that has been playing music his whole life. What can I say, I'm blessed and so so thankful! 7 years strong, that's how long I've been at it!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Chameleon-esque shape shifter music ninja.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Hmm, I'm not sure...you perhaps?
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: How about a few tips!? Snare effects are huge if you're looking to add dimension to an otherwise simple drum beat. Try adding reverb or delay or even the combination of the two to specific snare hits to add some extra coolness to the track.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Anything from indie rock to chick pop to recording metal bands and making hip-hop beats. Who know's what I'll be working on tomorrow?? No matter what I'll give it my all!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Determination to reach our goals.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring the "muse" to music!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Ask, ask, ask. Get to know the artist, his or her vision, their tastes, what direction they would like to see the song go...then execute.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: A sweet little home studio for the moment with a custom desk of my own design that I even helped build!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Old school? All of the Classic Rock icons for sure! New school? The hit-masters like Max Martin.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I take demos from artists and turn them into songs!
