    Zach is one of my favorite vocalists I've had the privilege of working with here on SB! Sounds a lot like Drew Taggart of the Chainsmokers to me in the particular key we used which was awesome

    Zach is awesome. Super talented. This was my second project with him and it ended up being more work than we originally anticipated in our collaboration. He was inspired, patient and diligent in making some great melodies! Rock on.

    It was a great pleasure to work with such a talented singer like Zach. His vocal performance of my song perfectly fitted into the instrumental I produced. Zach prepared professional vocal tracks and sang great backing vocals, harmonies and ad-lips, so working on their mix was very pleasant. In addition, Zach is a very nice guy. I heartily recommend and hope for future cooperation !

    What can I say? Zach was awesome. Turned a project around in not only a quick amount of time, but can tell he really spent the time to navigate the message of the song to create something amazing. Can’t wait for part 2 of the project- tremendous dude.

    Zach is a really talented man in terms of topline projects that we gave him. He has a lot of fresh ideas that are always great. Aside from that, he also submit his works ahead of time without compromising the quality of the project.

    Zach was more than professional, he was quick, mindful, and caught onto the job quick. Literally 2 hours into the job he was sending me 3-5 melody styles, soon after that helped with the verse and chorus. Zachs one of the most talented songwriters I’ve ever worked with and gives you much more than you pay for

    Zach has become one of our favorite collaborators over the last year! He brings such a great energy to anything he works on! He has a great ear for melody, and arrangement. His writing style is very modern, and his keyboard chops are sick! Out side of music Zach is a great fella! and has a great energy! If you want a great product, hire Zach!

    Zach is INCREDIBLE to work with on all things musical. Him and I have worked together for the past few years on various projects. He is great with all his vocals and is an amazing songwriter too. I am sure everyone else will get to experience his magic when they get to collaborate! CHEERS

Interview with Zach Sorgen

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

  2. A: Vocal - writing, recording (as well as comping, editing, maxing, mastering) and basic piano/synth pop chord progressions

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

  4. A: Love the pop side of Top40 (Maroon 5, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, etc.) Getting more into Urban (Drake, Kendrick, Rihanna) Love neo soul and nu disco (NAO, Oliver Nelson) Grew up on jazz (Hank Mobley, Charlie Parker, Miles)

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: Neumann U-87 mic running through Avalon 737 preamp into my Duet and through Logic Pro, where I have an incredible vocal chain which I tweak depending on singer and song key/tempo/style.

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

  8. A: I usually freestyle melody (and some sounds/words), then pick the best melodies and arrange them to fit classic verse/pre/chorus structure, then flesh out the rest of the lyrics and concept. Sometimes I start with a concept/lyric

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

  10. A: Swag, musicality, real emotion

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Everything. But I guess melody

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

  14. A: Popular

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

  16. A: All instruments should work well together as if they're having a conversation

  24. A: Computer, headphones, preamp, mic, keyboard, speakers. Shoot that's 6! Guess I could do without the speakers but I might need those to signal for help. Come to think of it, scratch everything... 1. cell phone 2. helicopter 3. flares 4. siren 5. my cat

  25. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  28. A: Musical references

  29. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
