Scott Jacobs on SoundBetter

An experienced, yet unique songwriter, topline writer, and session vocalist who will strive to capture exactly what your looking for!

I am an experienced songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist who has been recording and writing music professionally for the last 10 years. I hail from Vancouver, Canada but offer my services to clients worldwide, while recording with top of the line gear (Neumann, Apogee, Universal Audio) in Vancouver. I have released one album of my own music, but now mainly focus on lending my talents to the projects of others.

I work in a few different genres. I am highly comfortable in the Singer-Songwriter/Folk realm, but also work in the Pop, Rock, Country, R&B, and Americana genres. I offer top quality Songwriting (Complete Arrangement, Top Line, Lyrics), remote session recording of male vocals, as well as guitar and piano tracks.

Interview with Scott Jacobs

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

  2. A: 16th note tambourine parts makes any chorus sound bigger.

  3. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  4. A: I love to work on singer-songwriter/folk. This is where I seem to feel the most comfortable. But I listen to and work in, a few other genres.

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: I think my voice and songwriting are my strongest musical abilities.

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

  8. A: Again, I try to focus mainly on the vibe, and emotion of the song. This has to be established first, then I can move on to actual lyrics, and definitive melodies.

  9. Q: What's your typical work process?

  10. A: I like to begin my songwriting with the question of where do I want the song to take the listener? Before I even begin to think about lyrics or melodic ideas, this has to be considered.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: I have a few great mics, but always find myself going for my U87. It seems to work well on everything. I run it through a UA Solo 610 Preamp, into an Apogee Ensemble, straight into Logic Pro X.

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

  14. A: I love the work of Ryan Adams. It's amazing how much great music he has put out.

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

  16. A: I usually do songwriting, but I am just as happy doing session vocals, guitars or keys.
