Interview with Carah Wes
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I always promise my best quality work, a high level of professionalism, clear communication and a quick turnaround on any project you give me.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That songs come from thin air. It's hard work and often emotionally taxing. Consumers take that for granted so quickly.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Allie X is making some incredible, left of center, new-retro pop music that blows my mind. She'd be a dream to work with.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Work with the equipment you love, the one that gives you your favorite sound, not the one that's the most expensive or the most sought after. You're going to make better music if you do!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Lyrics, always. I was a poet before I was a songsmith, and I've studied poetry and songwriting ad nauseam. It's my passion.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I love to leap into a project as soon as all of the parts are in my hands, which for me means tackling the faster things first. For song projects, I'll write lyrics/melody, then I'll jump right to arranging (usually on guitar) before going to record. I have a sense of accomplishment when I finish a project quickly and with a high level of quality.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm a big fan of Hozier, Leland, and Josh Ramsay as far as writers go; I think they're super creative and amazingly talented in their work. But I'm especially inspired by my friends and colleagues who work in music and production as well!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Usually, clients will contact me about writing original lyrics or lyrics based around ideas they already have. I love the freedom and collaborative energy that goes into both kinds of requests; either way, it's fun for me!
