    The way Sheldon interprets music isn't like I have ever seen. I'm super picky, but I always give him creative freedom (without sample songs, etc), because I know he would blow my mind with how his mind interprets my song. He is a super talented dude and a great producer. It typically takes him a little more time to get work done because of how busy he gets, but he always comes back with a banger. He is yet to disappoint on a project we've worked on. I'll definitely work with Sheldon again.

    Sheldon is a special musician! Not many people are as talented, musically diverse and proficient in so many different styles of music. Everything he is apart of musically is beautiful and honestly, just RIGHT.
    We have worked together in many formats and this guy adds to anything he is involved in.

Interview with Sheldon Ferguson

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

  2. 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.

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

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

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

  6. 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.

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

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

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

  10. 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.
