Interview with Tordy
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I really liked working with Andrea Damante. The song we made is a hit and has over millions of streams.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Working on songs for Markus Shultz, Kapslap, Gazzo, Lash, Novaspace, Adrian Alter, and much much more.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both because one is just easier but one definitely sounds better
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: The song I write will be their post popular song.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love melody. I'm obsessed. I've been obsessed since i was a child.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How long is it gonna take? About a 3 days.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Sometimes I wont take on a project because I don't like the music. I will not write to anything. A lot of times the problem is within the music itself. The music may be too busy, or just not setup to be a hit.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What do you want your song to sound like? Do you have your own production?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: The song starts with a chord progression and a melody. If a writer doesn't say that, or they start writing a song with lyrics first, they don't know what they're doing. If a songwriter is writing down lyrics before melody, the writer is bound by those words.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, plane, knife, mic, acoustic guitar
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been doing this for like 6 years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Big pop record
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Astrid S. She's got a great voice.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Sometimes with chorus vocals ill tune the hard left and right panned dubs hard to make it seem like the vocal is more in tune that actually it is. It prevents the lead from sounding over tuned but still locks everything in nice and tight.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is vocal melody
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I feel like I understand what people want. Simple pop songs!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: If i'm making a song from scratch, ill start with a chord progression, or a cool sample. Once I have a basic outline of the song, ill begin working on the vocal melody starting with the chorus. After thats done, ill move on to the pre chorus followed by the verse melody. Once those are done, ill work on lyrics. After thats done, we get a singer to track. Finish the production, comp the vocals. mix the song and song is done!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Ive got a few mic pre's, an 1176 compressor, Manley reference (for those crystal clear vocals)
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Max Martin, Ian Kirkpatrick
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do is songwriting. There are a lot of producers, and there are a lot of producers that have a ton of instrumentals that they'd like to turn into full blown hits. That's what I do.
