    Excellent work by Danny. Second time working with him, and again very happy with the accordion tracks he provided.

  4. Review by Carlo Villegas

    Danny is a super talented instrumentalist! Delivered beyond expected and made sure that everything is perfect on my end before I completed the project. Only asked him for a simple instrumental and created something I didn't know I wanted. I will definitely come back for more!

Interview with Danny Peña

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

  2. A: Getting started on social media! I'm a late adapter, even for my age. Just started a twitch channel to play live music at twitch.tv/dannypenamusic

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

  4. A: That I'm only an accordion player. I'm also a very experienced regional Mexican producer!

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

  6. A: Chromatic accordion, Acoustic Bass, Acoustic Guitar, Bajo Quinto, and something to record on.

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

  8. A: Classical musicians inspire me to learn more, but pop musicians inspire me to enjoy more :-)

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

  10. A: Record accordion for a base track! Easily the most common. I wish I did more full production though!

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

  12. A: I'm proud of most of my projects, but the one that made me say "wow" is working with Damian Sanchez on a piece for the video game Temtem, it was the first video game I worked on and the one that stuck to me the most with the NDAs and all.

  13. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  14. A: Both, who cares what you use? Analog or digital are just tools, the line of 'quality' between them is getting more blurry each year too!

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

  16. A: I get to stay home :-) kinda lonely though.

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

  18. A: For my portfolio, I just redirect them to my website, although I really have to add more portfolio there as well!

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

  20. A: BPM, Samplerate, Bitrate, accordion register, references, if any of these apply!

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

  22. A: I've been playing accordion for a while now.. like almost 10 years, I don't remember really... I studied music technology.... and I record accordion for a LOT of people. Lately, I've been trying to get into social media a little more, but I definitely am a late adapter.

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Adaptable (⌐■_■)

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

  26. A: I think any artist that has a good work ethic is someone I'd like to work with :-)

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

  28. A: Don't over-compress!

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

  30. A: Lately, a lot of bosa nova, but anywhere from norteño to video game scoring!

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

  32. A: Some squeezeebox flavor!

  33. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  34. A: Some Owens corning on the home studio, stereo condensers, B&W802 speakers, computer with ProTools, Ableton, and Samplitude.

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

  36. A: Be open, great communication is the key to a beautiful project.

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

  38. A: Listen to the client, listen to the track (if there's one), and go from there.

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

  40. A: I don't know anyone on here :-(

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

  42. A: I'll keep recording until you're happy.

  43. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  44. A: I feel like a technology-driven audio engineer, so I think adapting is a strong skill :-)?

I usually allow as many revisions as a client needs to be happy with his project, and turn-around times really depend on how busy I am with current projects. Thanks!
