Zach Alwin on SoundBetter

I've written, produced and/or sang on hundreds of songs for myself, other artists like MAX and Gnash, commercials, etc.

Good music makes you feel something, so if it doesn't feel right, it's not right. I'm an experienced writer, singer, producer, session musician and a graduate from Bob Cole Music Conservatory in Jazz & Classical Voice. When you hire me, more than my vocal chords, fingers, rhyming ability or technical knowledge, you're paying for my artistic sensibility and taste. I take that seriously and do my best to emotionally invest in every project I take on while keeping a professional and complimentary attitude.

I can work with any deadline as long as I'm told ahead of time.

Contact me through the green button above and lets get to work.

    Zach was my first experience with SoundBetter. Couldn't have worked out better. Needed a fresh take on lyrics and Zach jumped right in with some great ideas. He was also able to do a reference vocal for rhythm/melody which helped quite a bit. Quick turn and great communication!

Interview with Zach Alwin

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

  2. A: Clients often think that they can get better results by giving me less direction and more freedom but the opposite ends up being true. As much as I try not to, I tend to play it safer when I don't know what a client wants.

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

  4. A: Laptop, Interface, Mic, Keyboard, Guitar .... anything else is just really just icing on the cake.

  5. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  6. A: Whatever it needs.

  7. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  8. A: A new R&B solo project.

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: YES. They both have their place.

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

  12. A: Having cool songs to be proud of at the end of the day.

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

  14. A: Know what you want. If I'm confident in the direction I need to take a song, it allows me to focus more on making it kick ass.

  15. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  16. A: Do less but do it better.

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

  18. A: I like to work fast. Get the idea out as quickly as possible and then fix whatever isn’t working after. Momentum is your friend.

  19. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  20. A: It’s all about workflow... making it quick and easy to go from idea to record-ready execution. You can find my note-worthy gear in the studio highlights section.

  21. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  22. A: I like a lot of the classics & new talent as well. It’s important to have a map of where we’ve been to try to see where we’re going. Singers - Van Morrison, Ray Charles, Jeff Buckley, Nate Ruess, Khalid Writers - Fiona Apple, Bruno Mars, Ben Folds, Drake Producers - Porter Robinson, Max Martin, Jon Brion, Jeff Bhasker, Neiked

  23. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
