Interview with Jason Siler
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly do editing, vocal tuning, drum replacement, production and mixing.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I grew up listening to the Beach Boys, Smokey Robinson and Bob Marley. More recently I've been inspired by artists from Dave Matthews to Bruno Mars. I really dig the production and mixing from Andrew Schepps.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I got a project studio at home where I do a lot of the editing, vocal tuning and pre mixing. I will do full mixes in the box as well but I also mix and do production out of a studio I share with two other producers. I have tons of plug ins. The studio is equipped with outboard gear. Neve 1073's, API mic pre's and EQ's, Pultec EQ's, Manley Vari MU, Phoenix Audio Pre's and EQ's, Focusrite MKII Pre's, along with a Nuemann U67, Royer 121, Pearlman TM-1 and TM-2, Shure SM7B and instruments such as a Hammond B3, Yamaha Baby Grand Piano, Vintage Ludwig Drums and various snares, guitars, basses and amps.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: If I'm mixing, I got to get into the song first. I got to feel it. Sometimes a quick rough mix will do the trick or a good reference mix or even reference track. Once the mix is underway, I like to give the client a starting mix and see what they're liking about it. I usually go back and forth with the client a few times before the mix is complete. I like to have the client be apart of the process.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Editing followed by mixing. I've done quite a bit of editing for other producers. Cleaning the tracks up, fixing timing issues without losing the vibe, tuning vocals and putting together well balanced mixes.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: It ranges from Indie Pop/Rock to Country.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't rush! Find the sound you're looking for and don't expect to fix it in the mix. It's not always so easy.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: So many. I'm a big fan of vintage style music with the modern sound so people like Bruno Mars and Elle King come to mind.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Mixing wise, I'd say enhancing but transparent. I find what the different parts of the songs are doing to bring them out and enhance those qualities.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Professionally I've been doing this for about 5 years and another 15 years or so before that. I played pro ball and worked as General Contractor before that.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Working with someone that you can connect with on a musical level can really have great outcomes.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What kind of sound that their looking for.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That everyone I work with is famous.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to make music!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that every project I take on will be treated with the amount of passion that the artist has for their music.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. Great records can be made using either but the ease of use, the options and speed that digital provides is unmatched.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on a few things right now. Some pop tracks, a classical guitar and vocal indie project, a jazz duo and various editing and tuning jobs.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I produced, along with the artist, and mixed Lucy Gucy's album "Down Down Down."
