Interview with Eva Reistad
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: If you're looking for a song- have a few melody references, production references, as well as theme ideas for your song!
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Elton John- must I explain further?
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: You don't need all that reverb. You think you do, but you don't. While I'm on a reverb kick, you should use separate reverbs for different things so your mixes don't end up flat!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Oh gee- What kind don't I work on? Currently working a lot in film which I love because orchestral scores can bring any hurt soul back to life. Also indie-rock, acoustic, hip hop, pop, etc.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Singing ballads. Ballads ballads ballads. Also though- getting guitar tones.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: One thing I really bring is authenticity. One of my favorite music quotes is about how sometimes it doesn't matter how good the singer is- what matters is the emotion the singer evokes. Now of course to get paid you need to be a good singer, but for certain songs I really go raw with my voice- hold out certain notes until they fade out, sort of dance around the rhythm instead of nailing it perfectly on the beat. That also helps bring out the emotion with what I usually do, which is ballads and more of "Adele-esk" type of things.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Duet, Protools 12, SM7, Manley Reference, and my HR824s!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I do a lot of tracking, a lot of singing, a bit of mixing.
