Interview with Brigham Hollywood
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: As an artist, you have to ask yourself the hard question, "if I stripped everything from this song; the drum track, the bass, the effects - everything down to just one guitar or piano and one vocal - is it still a good song?" If the answer is yes, you're on a winner. If the answer is no, then you need to cut your losses and move on. Fancy production and effects won't save you if the song itself can't stand on its own merits.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mainly electronic, pop and a bit of R'n'B/soul.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: An ear for knowing when to fill space - and when to create space.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I only need four items: my MacBook (running Logic Pro, of course), a decent 88-note keyboard and a sustain pedal - because a lot of people forget the pedal - and headphones!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Production and arranging, to hear what a song needs to take it to the next level, or what it needs to do without to take it to the next level. Sometimes that's just as important.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: As a producer and songwriter, all I need to get a project off the ground is my MacBook (which runs Logic Pro) - and a keyboard. However, when working on my own or other people's material, I'll use a number of dedicated studio facilities for various aspects of the project as required.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I like to see someone as an artist first and a client second. Production and songwriting is what I focus on the most, taking a song and collaborating with the artist to create a very specific sound and vibe.
