    Darren is an incredible singer and a great person. He felt that my song was missing a bass, so he added one with no extra charge. I definitely recommend him to any musicians looking for lyrics to put in their songs.

    Darren is a professional in every way. I would highly recommend him to any producer! Great vocalist and mixing engineer. If you want the vocals to sound professional and modern, just trust him and you will not be disappointed. What captivated me in his work especially was the most active involvement in the project. He gave me some interesting solutions, which in the end turned out to be really good and thanks to this the song sounds really catchy. I will definitely use his services again!

    Darren was an absolute joy to work with. Not only did he go above and beyond what I had wanted--supplying two versions of the song that we had asked him to supply vocals for--his vocal talents are phenomenal and his love for all things music really shine through. He is also quick and efficient in getting your work back to you. Just superlative in every way!

    With the song already written it just needed a the perfect vocal to lift it up to the next level and Darren's vocals did that perfectly. Spot on to the guide but with just the right amount of character to give it those little extras every track should have.

Interview with Darren Fewins

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I tracked, mixed and assistant mastered a track for a client about 4 months ago that ended up being released as a single. She was a fairly well known singer/songwriter in the New York scene. I tracked everything my self using a 64 channel SSL console. I mixed the track using the same console using all types of techniques like parallel compression with Analog compressors. I also performed and co-arranged Backing Vocals on the track with the artist. I'm very proud of the result that came out of that experience.

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

  4. A: At the moment I'm programming some music for a client. He needs backing tracks for his upcoming live performances. I am also helping a client put chords to his original music in a sort of pre-production phase of recording his single. We will be going into the studio to track live instruments in a week.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: If you need female vocals I can totally recommend my friend Bea Go. She does some amazing work.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Both have their uses. In most cases you can't beat an analog sounding unit but they are not always easy to get your hands on. Digital plug ins can make a process much speedier and also create a similar result if you are using the right plugins.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: I promise to deliver a high quality performance that leaves you satisfied.

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

  12. A: My job is in the music industry. I love everything about it. I think if I had to chose a favorite thing it would, being part of the creative side of things.

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

  14. A: How soon can you get this to me? My answer is. "When do you need it by" I always like to get things done as fast as possible. It's good for me to turnover projects faster and good for the client to have things back in a timely fashion. In saying that, I don't like to rush projects without putting the proper time and effort into it. I want my clients to come back time and again.

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

  16. A: That I can only sing pop music. I am flexible in my styles from pop to RnB, from County to Classical.

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

  18. A: It would have to depend on the material that they present to me.

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

  20. A: I can provide you with an extremely high quality performance whether it be a vocal performance or you need your song mixed. Whatever you need doing, I will deliver an extremely professional performance with a quick turn around.

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

  22. A: My guitar. My Neumann TLM 103, My computer with Protools. A set of speakers and a channel strip of some sort.

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

  24. A: I have been a professional singer since I was 13 years old. I am now 35 so I have been singing for 23 years. about 7 years ago I moved more into music production and Audio Engineering as well as continuing my singing career.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: My style is contemporary pop. Top 40. I try and create catchy music that sells.

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

  28. A: I'd like to work with someone like Justin Timberlake. I believe he is just brilliant. He thinks outside the box when he creates music and pushes the boundaries and it almost always turns to gold!

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

  30. A: The most important thing I've leant is to make sure your room is sonically sufficient. If your room is not treated, it is lying to your ears.

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: So many different styles. Not a whole lot of Heavy metal. Mainly pop, Rnb and Hip Hop.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: I've been a professional singer most of my life. So i would say my strongest skill would be my vocal ability. But I believe I bring a strong talent to many facets to the creation of music.

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

  36. A: I bring a professional vocal that makes your song stand out from the rest. I also have the ability to add any effects to my own vocals, your vocals or your mix. I can also tune any vocals that you need tuned either with Auto Tune for the T-Pain effect or Melodyne for that subtle, realistic effect.

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

  38. A: Depending on the nature of the project, I will listen to the clients needs and address them in the most professional way.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I work out of a Grammy award winning recording studio in Downtown New York. It's called Engine Room Audio. I have access to some of the best Microphones in the world. Professional tracking booths and multi platform plugins. We use Lynx convertors and a variation of speakers.

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

  42. A: Max Martin, Timberland, Im a huge Justin Timberlake fan.

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: Im predominantly a session singer, providing both Lead Vocals and Backing vocals. I am also capable of composing and arranging vocals for peoples projects.
