Interview with TheTruthWithJuice
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I produced a single for a mysterious artist that goes by the name of H.I.M and the song is called HYMN. Its on all major platforms and I am proud of this because I was able to successfully blend my background of gospel, R&B Soul and urban music together. It's doing very well.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I recently released my artist's R&B EP which is doing really well. I am also working on an artist's EP from Australia. As well as working with established artist projects signed to Good Music, Universal, Interscope and others.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Yes. Guylare Leon! Amazing vocalist and songwriter
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. It depends on what feel I am going for which plays a major role.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I stand behind my music and will put it up against anybody. The rest is up to you!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: It's what I love to do and always dreamed of doing.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Can I make it sound like what's out and I tell them I can make it sound better.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is that we can make someone who can not sing sound like a famous artist. There is so much I can do as a producer but to make you sound like Adele but you tone deaf.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are the intentions for this project? What is your deadline? Who is mixing the record and do they have a reference of work that I can hear? How would you like the project to be delivered?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: To be clear about what they want and be able to articulate that prior to work being done. If you have a reference track that always helps. Also don't expect the producer to mix the song because that is what an engineer is for and that is an additional fee.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Mac Laptop, Akai mini midi controller, my portable external hard drive, Beats by Dry headphones, and acoustic/electric guitar.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started out as a church musician and then touring musician. I have been in music for over 10 years
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is tailor made. I have an eclectic musical background and my style varies depending on the artist I am working with.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Beyonce, Rihanna, Jay Z, Drake, Adele, Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran and Justin Timberlake
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always keep an up to date catalog of fresh drums and sounds. The quality is just as important as the content. The song could be a great song but if it sounds low quality then it brings down the entire value of the record.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: R&B, Pop and Hip Hop
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Blending unique sounds together and make the end product sound radio ready.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring life to it. Normally a song starts off as a vision and I am able to bring someone's vision to sound just like a painter does on canvas.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I normally start with whatever inspires which is normally a sound that I scroll through or a drum groove in my head.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work mostly on my 17in Mac laptop, with an MPK 49 Akai Controller, Apollo Twin interface, I have a Fender Bass Guitar and strat. I have the Adam a7X monitors and the yamaha HS8 as alternates.

A: Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield, Timbaland, Dr. Luke, and Darkchild
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
