Michael Arrom on SoundBetter

I've shared the world stage with Keith Urban and Steve Vai and I want to work with you! Your song and story deserve the best. I’m a top notch keyboardist and versatile musician with the tools and sensibility to deliver what you need. Let’s collaborate!

I believe music is all about connecting with a listener and telling a story. Your song and story matter, and I’d love to help bring your vision to life.

I grew up with a deep love for classical and rock ‘n roll. My hunger soon drove me to explore beyond, diving into pop, blues, R&B, Latin, country, and other genres. I love music, and I love collaborating with artists and producers who share that passion, regardless of musical background. After all, some of the most powerful music is created at the crossroads of two musical traditions.

I'm a top graduate of the USC Thornton Popular Music program, and I’m prepared to give you the professionalism you deserve. I’ve worked with everyone from students to major label artists; I bring passion and energy to every project. My work ethic and expertise have placed me on national television and the international stage with artists such as Keith Urban and Steve Vai. Major labels trust me to work with their rising artists such as Sofia Carson (Descendants), Noah Cyrus and Madison Beer. I understand the demands for quality and reliability within a short amount of time.

More than anything, I want to help spark your vision to life. Whether providing dynamic piano accompaniment or tasteful B3 organ, sculpting custom synths + soundscapes, or building an entire track, you can count on me to deliver what’s right for you and your song!

    Michael was referred to me by Sound Better and it couldn't have been a better match - I see him as a much younger version of myself in that we are both keyboardists and he understood and fulfilled my requests. We used a combination of the dialogue box filled with grid specifics followed by a chat and it was as close to the "shoulder to shoulder" type of record production I came accustomed to from my "rock star" days in the 70's.
    I plan on hiring Michael to complete my Rock-estra album.

    Michael nailed a B3 part for a 4 minute Americana song on the first pass. He had to work around guitars and horns to add padding and color without bloating the mix. It was the perfect blend of tones and textures- the kind of result that demonstrates intuitive songcraft and production skills. Also a great guy and communicator!

    This is the second song I've worked with Michael on, and I couldn't be more impressed with what he came up with. This time, rather than a straight piano track, which he provided beautifully for me last time, he layered a bunch of ambient synth and keyboard parts, all of which he improvised and which have since become indispensable to the final mix.

    His playing chops are superb, but beyond that, he's a true creative artist on the keyboards, and a great person to collaborate/correspond with.

    It was an absolute pleasure working with Michael on my song. He re-interpreted a very rocky guitar driven track of mine as a slower, piano-lead version and his subtle melodic touch and sense of dynamics were perfect. On top of that, correspondence with him, despite a Pacific Ocean time zone difference, was seamless. Will definitely work with Michael again. He is a world-class musician.

Interview with Michael Arrom

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

  2. A: Sir Paul McCartney, hands down. No need to explain further :)

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

  4. A: First, I do a lot of listening...listening to the music, listening for the meaning of the song and listening to my client. I'll ask thoughtful questions until I'm confident that I understand your needs. At that point, I'll listen back carefully to your stems to make sure I understand the structural elements of your song: chord patterns, tempo, dynamics, etc. I'll consult with you to select an appropriate voice (piano, organ, synth, etc) and then get to work creating your track. I record both audio and MIDI to allow us to fine tune the performance to your satisfaction. I'll bounce an mp3 of the entire song and share that with you for discussion and for any desired revisions. Once you're 100% satisfied, I'll send you both the isolated wav file and associated MIDI data.

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

  6. A: Don't be anxious about approaching me before you're certain of what you want. While it's usually easiest to just give you exactly what you want, it's more fun to help you develop possibilities you hadn't imagined before talking to me. I'm ready to help guide you through a creative range of options.

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

  8. A: I was invited by Michael Stoller's family to take part in a tribute to the late Jerry Leiber. Leiber & Stoller were the first songwriters to be inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame. Their work was legendary and helped launch the career of Elvis Presley with songs like "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock". I was asked to play Hammond organ in an incredible band that paid tribute to their work. Michael Stoller is a living legend and one of my heroes. I will never forget playing alongside him in a loving tribute to his friend and collaborator.

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

  10. A: I do a variety of work for my clients. The simplest is when I create a piano backing track for an existing song. From there, my work expands into writing original keyboard parts to complement your melody. I can also do an extensive amount of soundscaping where I add additional synth layers to give your song that radio-ready vibe. If you need a full production, along with lead sheets for your band, I'm ready to do that too.

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

  12. A: 100% effort until you're 100% satisfied. Professionalism throughout in my work, communications and follow up.

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

  14. A: Sharing my skills with other talented musicians to create something special.

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

  16. A: I’m currently splitting my time between work in Los Angeles and New York. I’m doing an eclectic mix of live gigs, music direction, session work, sound design, film scoring, production and musical notation work.

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

  18. A: Lily Marley and Katie Stump. Brilliant musicians with beautiful singing voices. They’re both very personable and professional.

  19. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  20. A: I love them both. Like any tool, you get the best results when you use the right tool for the job. Most music will be distributed digitally using a compression algorithm like mp3. For those applications, digital is the way to go. It’s very cost effective and can sound great. For piano work, I can use my MIDI controller and Synthogy’s Ivory plug-in for nearly lifelike results. My favorite instrument for live performance will always be a full concert grand. I love Steinway and I prefer the Hamburg pianos for the brighter tones that they bring to modern music. If you catch me while I’m working on the east coast and you want analog, I can bring you the best of both worlds. I have access to a Hamburg Steinway Model A piano. My recording chain for that is an Earthworks PianoMic followed by your choice of a Neve 1073 or a Telefunken V72 preamp. I bring it to digital using an excellent Apogee Rosetta A/D converter.

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

  22. A: I’ve been studying, performing and creating music for 15 years. I started performing on professional stages at 13. I got my first big breaks during my senior year of high school. First, the Grammy Foundation selected me to accompany Keith Urban on live national television at the American Country Awards. Just a few months later, I passed a grueling audition to play keyboards for Steve Vai on an international tour through Australia, New Zealand and Asia. I returned from tour to continue my music education at the prestigious USC Thornton Popular Music Program. I completed the program with multiple department awards and Summa Cum Laude honors.

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: A standard piano has 88 keys, but there is so much more that you can bring out of the instrument. The full name is piano-forte and that says something about the dynamic ability to express everything between barely a whisper and booming thunder. I have years of top-notch classical training to be able to express the entire range of dynamics to create an arc that complements and enhances the emotional content of your song. You'll rarely hear piano work like mine.

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

  26. A: I have a full professional palette of skills to bring to your music. I’m not just a pianist, but also a skilled producer and keyboard multi-instrumentalist. I know my way around a Hammond organ and all the synthesizer and production technologies. I use my skills to sculpt the perfect keyboard tracks around your music. I’ll always do that while paying careful attention to the message and feeling of your song.
