Interview with Upstate Music Studios

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

  2. A: "Durag" ft. Georgie Zaven by Sergio's Packpack Worked on from beginning to end with entire team.

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

  4. A: Working with record label on artist releases.

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

  6. A: Shane Bauman ("Sheux-Bear")

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital, faster and saves space. The difference between the two for my select genres is negligible.

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

  10. A: You'll leave with more than you paid for. I don't just press record, I educate and give feedback.

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

  12. A: Meeting new people and hearing new sounds.

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

  14. A: Often artists ask "was that a good take?" I've noticed, many need guidance. We offer that here.

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

  16. A: I'm not just a recording engineer. I'll give you feedback if you wish. I'll tell you if your song needs improvement, or if you just need a new song.

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

  18. A: What are your goals? Who are your influences?

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

  20. A: Try to make sure the studio you're looking for doesn't have an ego. It's hard to work with a producer or engineer with an ego.

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

  22. A: MacBook, iPhone, Headphones, Microphone, Apollo Interface

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

  24. A: Started song-writing in 2009 while in college and picked up the guitar. Began collaborating with other artists in 2010 in rap and hip-hop. Graduated from Belmont University with a B.A. in Audio Engineering in 2015. Shifted into producing in 2016 working with Pop and EDM artists. Started a music studio business in 2020.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: Transparent

  28. A: Kanye, due to his influences on my work, I'd like to learn more about his process.

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

  30. A: Focus more on production and less on mixing. Mixing won't save your song, it will improve it.
