Eddie was awesome! Super professional, quick turnaround time, and amazing voice. Even added some killer harmonies and ad libs. Would highly recommend!
Eddie is an amazing male vocalist. His sound is pure and back current. He did background vocals on oneiof my albums and did an amazing job! I’d recommend him to anyone that is needing a male vocalist.
Eddie Harrison is a wonderful communicator as a singer. He is a current sounding male voice who sings with emotion. And, just as importantly, he is a professional. He takes care of business. I'm happy to wholeheartedly recommend the vocal services of Eddie Harrison.
Interview with Eddie Harrison
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most commonly, I record lead and background vocals for songwriting demos or background vocals for other artist's feature projects.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm a huge fan of singer/songwriters. Anyone that has the ability to tell a compelling story and marry that to a memorable melody is an artist at the highest level. Lately, artists like Chris Stapleton, Ed Sheeran, Ryan Adams, John Mayer and James Bay really have my attention.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a small vocal and track building studio in my office with ProTools, Ableton, an Apollo Twin, Rode NT1-A and a Macbook Pro. I also have access to a larger studio with a Control24, ProTools, a larger mic collection and Barefoot studio monitors if the job calls for it.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to listen to the work tape a few times and then listen to the produced track to see how it may have changed from one stage to the next. Once I have a good feel for the melody and interpretation of the tune, I dive in and take it a section at a time until it's perfect. It's important to me to capture the emotion of the song in addition to getting it technically right.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I think I bring a unique tone and dynamic to a song. Whether it's soft and sweet or big and boisterous, I'd like to think that I can handle either approach with excellence.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I spend a lot of time working on gospel and worship music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Feedback is the breakfast of champions. Don't be afraid to ask someone for input and don't be too quick to dismiss it if you don't agree at first.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to sing with Little Big Town! Harmonies for DAYS!!!!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Easy! I would take my Macbook, the Apollo Twin, a great vocal mic, Barefoot monitors and a second Macbook for when the inevitable hard drive failure happens with the first! Ha!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to give every vocal 100% of my creativity and attention at that moment. Whether the song is my favorite or not, you will get more than what you pay for with me.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Check out Donna King for female vocals! She is incredible and....she's also my mom-in-law!
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I recently worked on Disney's Moana karaoke soundtrack. While I was part of an ensemble and didn't have any featured parts, it's still pretty cool to play it for my kids hear them say "Dad, I can hear your voice!"
