Interview with Perry Barton
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: After we discuss the project, you send me 1) an editable document containing the lyrics, 2) an instrumental track, and 3) a guide vocal track. If available, the tempo in BPM is helpful. I then sing the first verse and chorus, and send you a draft-quality MP3 of track plus vocal for your review. Once we know we're on the same page re the vocal style, I sing the rest of the song and deliver another MP3 for your approval. If revisions are needed, this is where they happen. Once you have approved the entire performance and marked the job "complete," I deliver the uncompressed WAV file(s) of the vocal track(s) to you.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Listen, listen, LISTEN to the client!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, R&B, Country, Rock, Americana, and Jazz are a few of the genres I cover.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: The ability to interpret a lyric and "sell" it to the listener; range (baritone to high tenor); clarity/enunciation. The fact that I'm also a songwriter gives me a keen understanding of song structure, dynamics, mood/tone—all the things that make a song great!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: As my profile says, passion and precision! A vocal must convey emotion AND be performed with the right technique.
