Interview with Ethan Martin

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

  2. A: Kiana Corley - Bottled Up. She is an amazing songwriter and came to me with an acoustic demo of her song. We produced it into the heartfelt jam that it is today in my home studio. I produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered that song.

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

  4. A: Mixing an album for a duo, a couple singles for a rapper, my own releases, as well as some sample pack work sprinkled in between.

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

  6. A: Off the top of my head, there is not.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital. Cheaper, faster, and more efficient for the average home studio.

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

  10. A: I promise you'll be more than happy with the results of our collaboration and that I'll be excited with you.

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

  12. A: I love helping people bring their musical visions to life. I also love to make songs that people love to listen to.

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

  14. A: I don't think I have a question other than what else has been asked here.

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

  16. A: That producers and songwriters are just about the job and not the connections. If we make a good song together, and it comes out for public release, I'd love to stay connected and show support.

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

  18. A: Should I plan to mix my work before I send it to you or are you having someone else do it? What is the deadline for this project? What artists music do you really like the sound/quality of?

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

  20. A: Make sure to have song references for your end goal, so that I know what specifically you're looking for. Please have listened to my work to know that I am a good fit for your project. Be ready to be excited on your end result!

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

  22. A: Acoustic guitar, a mobile recorder, any microphone, any nice headphones, and if I can swing a laptop...

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

  24. A: I started out playing and singing in rock bands. After touring, recording in nice studios, and meeting others in the industry with more experience, I decided I wanted to pursue a career on my own rather than with a group. It's been over 10 years since I began my musical journey and I have picked up skills in every aspect of music production and songwriting along the way.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: Smooth, chill, and emotional.

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

  28. A: Frank Ocean. He has one of the most interesting ears for songwriting I've come across and has inspired me so much in my music.

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

  30. A: If you start with high quality sounds, you will save yourself a ton of work down the line in a project.

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

  32. A: R&B and all varieties of hip hop. Occasionally some pop that crosses over.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: I would say it's my taste in sounds. I find that the ideas I like and decide to go with are often received well by listeners, whether it's me performing or for someone else to perform.

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

  36. A: A unique blend of hip hop and R&B that you wouldn't get from other talented producers in the genre. I am decisive in what I like and have worked a long time to be able to translate my ideas effectively.

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

  38. A: I always start out by checking out song references for the job I'm working on. For songwriting, I try to start with a hook idea, but it's whatever idea inspires me the most that gets me started. For beat production, I always start with a simple chord progression and then really dive into the drum groove before I come back to add the rest of the music.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I use Studio One Professional as my DAW, with JBL 8" monitors and a JBL sub. For an interface, I most often have been using an Apogee Duet 3. My mic choice varies, as I have several to use, but I like to use the Slate ML-1 or the Aston Spirit.

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

  42. A: Beat production, whether custom or licensing out of my store, and songwriting.

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

  44. A: Daniel Caesar, Frank Ocean, Sza, and Ari Lennox.
