Interview with Christopher Weeks
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is that I will do everything to ensure that whatever project I am involved with succeeds. I love what I do and every ounce of that love gets poured into each project.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on jazz projects, particularly classic jazz such as swing and big band music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: That I'm not just a singer. I'm also a very experienced multi-instrumental musician and have worked extensively as a musical director, as well as an arranger, pianist, guitarist, bass guitarist and trumpeter! It gives me a great insight into all aspects of a song.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a great understanding of what the song is trying to achieve. In every bit of work I do, I look for the story first and everything then comes organically from that. The phrasing becomes much more impactful because it all has a meaning and a purpose
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I'm currently in the middle of a UK tour so I don't have a big studio that I'm using a lot. I am doing most of my work from my MacBook Pro, using an audio interface and my trusty Shure SM7B mic, which is great for recording on the road!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Quincy Jones is a big one...he was a great trumpeter first and toured with various bands, then became a fantastic arranger (working with Sinatra and others) before becoming a legendary producer. I find his ability to reinvent himself (as well as his all round musicianship) extremely inspiring.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The majority of my work is singing lead lines on songs, as well as creating and adding harmony and contrapuntal lines that complement what is already there.
