Interview with Billy Coleman III
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I originally wanted to study graphic design, but I took a passion to engineering shortly before entering college. Now, I'm doing what I love, making 'something' out of 'nothing', with air.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I create what I like to hear. I create what I think sounds dope. The feedback 9/10 resonates the same sentiments. 1/10 the listener isn't within the artist's target audience.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Backup your files!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I typically work on genres ranging from hip hop to rock.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I can produce, record, mix and master a song in under an hour.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring the ability to make an artist's work sound professional & radio-ready with mixes that contend with major label releases.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on collaborations with fellow producers, along with my own works. I'm mixing singles for a few clients at the moment, nothing big but I'm enjoying the talent I'm being paired with.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog has its special place in music. I have an appreciation for both mediums, but I have to prefer digital. More than enough dynamic range, low noise floor, analog emulation, the list goes on for why I prefer digital over analog, in the production process.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I like being involved in what makes a song shine.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: A good provider will work with you until you are fully satisfied with your product. I've known of people who tax on every revision, and that clearly shows that those people are in this business purely for the money. Don't get me wrong, I gotta get paid as well, but I don't let the money blind my vision. This is still a passion.
