Luke Davids on SoundBetter

I'm a classically trained pianist and seasoned professional vocalist/performer and have played on countless records throughout all genres of rock and pop.. My love for songwriting helps me to approach songs tastefully, adding vocals and instrumental layers that help take the song to the next level.

    Luke was great to work with and I would definitely work with him again. Such a distinct voice and a real pro.

Interview with Luke Davids

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

  2. A: Piano tracks for singer-songwriter style songs. Adding extra layers of strings / pads / textures is also a common request.

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

  4. A: The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Ben Folds, Elvis Costello

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I work from my Nord Stage 2 EX 88 Key utilizing the highest quality samples around (Native Instruments, Ivory and Logic Pro).

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

  8. A: Typically I will listen to the song a few times, chart it out and start doing a few takes. It's usually pretty apparent what would serve the song best. I then go back through with the track tucked below the mix as it would be in the final mix and make sure it's adding and not distracting from the song in general. Then once I know it's the final take I go through and do any necessary tweaking or quantizing if requested by the client.

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

  10. A: My vast knowledge of music theory balanced out by my passion for songwriting. (I attended a classical conservatory in London, England called 'The Purcell School' as a young child and continued studying privately into my teens.)

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Songwriting and pianist

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

  14. A: Pop / Singer-Songwriter

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

  16. A: Less is more

  17. Q: How would you describe your style?

  18. A: Laid-back

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

  20. A: Started working as a session musician in Orlando, FL immediately after graduating high school. Continued doing that while landing a full-time gig as a performer at Walt Disney World. I played keys and sang in a band that covered anything people wanted to hear (Beatles, Rolling Stones, 80's, Funk etc) - I worked there from 2010 - 2015. During this time I was also writing and releasing my own original music which I continue to do to this day.

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

  22. A: Do your research - listen to examples and make sure it's right for your project.

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

  24. A: Being able to do what I love on a daily basis.

  25. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  26. A: Digital for ease, Analog for quality. Nothing like the sound of recording to tape if you got the $$$.

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

  28. A: My third album release and scoring for film & TV.

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

  30. A: My second album "Let Love" is very near and dear to my heart. It marked the turning point in my songwriting career where I decided that I wanted everything I put out into the world to be uplifting in some way. My role was songwriter, co-producer and playing the majority of instruments on the record (piano, guitar, keys, vocals, BGVs, post-production).
