Interview with Christina Galligan
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been serious about music since I was in high school. I attended Berklee College of Music and I was mainly focused on singing jazz. But then I became interested in pop and electronic production, as well as songwriting. There, I started editing vocals. I find it meditative to comp and melodyne vocals. I recently moved to LA and within my first few months of being here, I got a call to sing background vocals in a recording session for Sia. I was able to work with Labrinth (producer/co-writer) and Kuk Harrell (vocal producer) in that session. I interned in music publishing then started working at Kanye West's studio. I mainly write almost everyday (by myself and in writing sessions).
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: For my own music, folk/singer-songwriter lyrics and melody meet pop/electronic/hip-hop production.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Billie Eilish. Love her writing style and overall aesthetic.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I am very confident in my ability to make the people I work with comfortable. When writing a song, it's important to feel like you can say anything. I love creating a story whether it's something I personally connect to or
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically, I have writing sessions with at least two writers and one producer. I like to schedule my sessions early in the day (around 12 or 1), so that we have the whole day to write the song, produce the song, and record the demo. I like to leave each session with a recorded demo.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a fully functional at-home studio setup. I have several recording microphones, as well as a top-of-the-line interface with the best preamp plugins. I have a keyboard as well as three guitars (two electric and one acoustic). I have an akai midi keyboard that producers can work on, as well as mackie monitors. It's the ideal setting for writing/production sessions and tracking vocals.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Billie Eilish - such an amazing writer, vocalist, and performer, at such a young age. Blake Mills - my favorite producer who has his on artist project that's extremely different from his production for other artists.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly write in songwriting sessions and sing demo vocals.
