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!

Interview with Bent Depui

Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
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.

A: Tom Waits. I think we would have the best time together, and messing up every rule in music theory ever made!
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
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.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
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
