Interview with Jason Haag
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: 1) In your mind, who do you think you sound like? 2) Who do you want to sound like? 3) What do you expect from me? What are you looking for, specifically, for your project?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Ask questions. So many producers put up a really nice front and it all looks good, but when you get towards the end of the project, the narrative changes. Listen to as many people's work as possible and find out who they are as a person. If you jive, your music will too!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Graduating college in Boston I left my internship and moved to Nashville. There, I spent three years working at the legendary Blackbird Studios watching and learning from some of the industries best engineers and producers.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Future Pop, Rock, Alternative
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would really love to work with Max Martin. He has written some of the greatest songs in history for almost three decades and still flies under the radar. Just one session with him would be worth it's weight in gold to me.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always try everything. My biggest pet peeve is producers who shoot down ideas without giving them a shot first. No, you may not end up putting a muted trumpet on your death metal record, but it could definitely lead to another idea that does fit and winds up being really cool! (True story... i swear)
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually find myself working on Pop or Country music. I'm pretty sure most of that has to do with spending the first part of my career in Nashville before relocating to the west coast. That being said, I have worked on all kinds of projects ranging from EDM all the way over to Hard Rock and Metal.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Client Interface. Although I did graduate with a four year degree in Music Production, nowhere along the line did anyone ever have a "Music Psychology" course. I feel that my strongest skill is getting even the most difficult to work with artists to let go and give a life changing performance to their track.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: So much more importantly than anything else, I bring an open mind and a very creative ear to any song I have a hand in. Whether it's mixing a final version or producing a track from scratch, I've spent 15 years honing my craft in both Nashville and Los Angeles and can guarantee you that we will create something really special!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically i do all of my writing in Ableton. I feel like the midi environment is so much quicker and user friendly than Pro Tools. Depending on the song, i'll start anywhere. Sometimes with a vocal, drums or a keyboard part. All depends on what i'm given as a starting point. From there, i'll bounce the session out of Ableton and pull it into Pro Tools for mixing and fine tuning.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a 2017 imac running Pro Tools 12, Ableton Live, and a ton of plugins/instruments/fx. Universal Audio interface allowing me to track at home through some fantastic mic pre's. Still rocking my original KORG Triton (although... only as a midi controller these days) with a MicroKorg and an MPC for a Midi Studio.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Max Martin, Benny Blanco, Stargate, Chris Lorde Alge, Andrew Schoeps, Rick King
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Music production and recording/mix engineer work. I love when clients bring me a scratch track and we sit down together and flesh out a full production around their idea. That's truly the happiest i've ever seen an artist get.
