Interview with Sheldon Ferguson

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

  2. A: Making great music with great people. I love meeting new clients who are passionate about what they do and helping them bring their visions to life.

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

  4. A: Keep things simple. Utilizing space allows the song to breathe and makes it easier for the listener to both digest and retain.

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

  6. A: I specialize in making songs memorable. Creating strong instrument parts is key to do doing this so I play and produce from this approach.

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

  8. A: My biggest influences for recording guitar include Nile Rodgers, Charlie Handsom, Tomi Martin and Paul Jackson Jr. to name a few. For creating parts I studied a lot of classic R&B records by bands like the Isley Brothers and Tony Toni Tone. I came up listening to classic rock as well so guitar virtuosos such as Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Slash and Jimmy Page had a big effect on me as well.

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

  10. A: My most common requests include recording guitar on top of a produced track and creating loop packs.
