    It was a great experience working with Saniyah in writing and recording vocals for the track that I brought to her. Her contribution was the perfect energy for the song, and we were able to work together on notes to really dial it in.

Interview with Saniyah X

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: My most recent EP, Oil Slick, is something that I am especially proud of. Not only did I fund the whole project myself but I also wrote all of the songs and even produced one myself. It was truly a labor of love and something I am grateful to have made.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: Depending on the project, I either work with my engineer at TrackNation studios in Southaven or out of Crosstown Concourse in Memphis, TN. I most frequently record on Logic Pro but I also have access to Pro Tools, Adobe Suite and Garageband

  5. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  6. A: I'm always working on something! Currently I am working on a 10 track project called Since September and open to collaborations with other artists. I am also writing a mini series that I'm excited to start filming.

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

  8. A: The thing I enjoy most is the connection I make with people. Whether someone is inspired and relates to something that I've written or they are compelled to network and reach out, I love being able to swap war stories, battle scars and potential for the future.

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

  10. A: I don't have one set way of making a song. Sometimes I take a day to write, a day to record and a day to mix and master. Other times, I can do all 3 in one day. It really depends on how much time I have in the studio, how prepared I am walking in and how inspired I am by the music/topic.

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

  12. A: I am inspired by Michael Jackson, Missy Elliott, Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Childish Gambino, J Cole, Chance the Rapper, Justin Timberlake, Wondergirl, Gym Class Heroes, H.E.R., Daniel Caesar, Syd

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

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: I would describe my style as therapy lol a feel-good soul expression.

  21. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  22. A: I would love to work with Childish Gambino because his career has really shown how creative he can get and how his art really has no limits.

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

  24. A: Don't overthink it. Make sure it feels right.

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