A: Bruno Mars. I feel similar to Bruno in a lot of ways, mostly because I play multiple instruments and sing along with writing songs and producing.

A: Parallel-compression is a great tool that will bring any lead vox or instrument to the front of the mix without it being over powering.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Urban, Gospel, Pop, R&B.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Finishing. I say that because I get a lot of work from clients that have had trouble finishing a song or project.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: To be honest, as much as you want me to bring. Since I play/mix/arrange/produce/write there are a lot of things I can do, but I usually listen for what the client wants from me.

A: It depends on the project. the first thing I do with any client is meet and discuss what's expected and what's desired for the project.
