Interview with Jay Webb

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: Doing what I love everyday!

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Why can't you provide me with your catalog? Answer: I don't want to lead you to false expectations of what I can make your music sound like. This is why I give you a FREE Song before you work with me. This way you can see exactly what I can do for you. Other people could have recorded with better or worse gear than you. This would lead you to be mislead about what I can do for you in particular.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: That you have to have a degree. Look at the best in the game, many are super talented with no degree. It's music, not math.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: Are your recordings clean, and are you ready for me to help you become a professional?

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Make sure they can promise you the quality you're looking for. Lack of confidence leads to bad music.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: laptop, monitors, interface, DAW, and mic.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I'm currently doing this full time and have been making music for 7 years. I'm 20 and I was only 13 when I got my first DAW and Laptop.

  26. A: I try to make my clients happy. Whatever they are looking for, I can usually do for them.

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

  28. A: Kanye West, I love the creativity he brings.

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

  38. A: Open my DAW and import the files and get to work. Each project is different and deserves to be treated like so.
