Bent Depui on SoundBetter

I have been studying music for about 5 years and been touring and recording for 12 of them. And I have been lucky enough to participate on platinum selling songs together with great artists. I have produced two of my own albums, plus that I have over a dusin songs being played on the radio, that I either participated on, or wrote myself.

I would love to make your song stand out! There is over 17.000 songs being released everyday on Spotify. And I would love to give you what your song need to be. Organically, modern touch or what you tell me to do!

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    Bent was an absolute pleasure to work with- his song was awesome and he had timely and clear communication throughout. I had a blast playing on his track and wouldn't hesitate to work with him again- highly recommended!

Interview with Bent Depui

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I worked as a producer for some rockbands, and one of my greatest moments was at their release show playing for 500 people going nuts over the song I like the best, that I helped writing :)

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: One dark ballade, two of my own albums, two remixes and making ends meet with the deadlines :)

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: I dont know so many here. But if you look at my reviews, you can see some of the people I like :)

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital. Its faster, easier to control and it's the future. I am saying this cos my two last albums were recorded analog. And its hell to go forward and back to fix something.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: That you will get a personal touch

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: That I can wake up and start making songs all day long.

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

  14. A: That I sing "pretty"

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  16. A: Look at the answer over :)

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

  18. A: Try to explain as much as you can what you want me to do for you. It's easier to meet your demands that way.

  19. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  20. A: Laptop, my martin guitar, a internet cable long enough to use from the island, my soundcard and my microphone. And hopefully make a powersource from the water

  21. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. A: I started out as a failed drummer in the local church and brassband. I soon got fired because I had "too" much me in the drumming :) Later on I started making my own songs by learning the guitar at an age of 14. My style always took me places I wasnt feeling comfy. So I tried develop a style that where my own, and not ruled by charts and others opinion.

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Rusty

  25. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  26. A: Tom Waits. I think we would have the best time together, and messing up every rule in music theory ever made!

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

  28. A: Try fattening up your vocals with sample delay just turning it a small bit to make your vocals bigger

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

  30. A: Mostly rock, ballads and folk music

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: Feeling

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

  34. A: A personal touch

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

  36. A: I love to analyze the idea I get, by going through all the parts in the song. If the song is without vocals, I start by making a melody and rythm before I write the lyrics.

  37. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  38. A: I have 2x Yamaha HS 5 montiors, accoustic treated walls, I use a Shure KSM 44a mic for vocals and accoustic guitars. I also have Logic X as a DAW, and Universal Apollo soundcard to record.

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

  40. A: I love watching youtube videos to learn new stuff. When it comes to other musicians, I try not to get to locked up in a bubble. My own style is too messed up and mixed into a big meshup at it already is :)

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

  42. A: I love singing rock and dark ballades. Most request people ask me to help them finish a song as well. Either if it is the lyrics or singing a new melody.
