Interview with Kendrick Fielder

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: UA Apollo Twin MKII, Yamaha HS8, AKG 412, SM57, SM58

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

  4. A: I like to listen to the track closely to get a sense of what the producer wants. I might make a chart depending on the song. Then I'll set up in my studio and begin recording keeping in mind how I can achieve the best results.

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

  6. A: When recording or performing, I tend to think like a producer. I'd like to be able to showcase the track/song without overpowering it with guitar/bass/etc. The song is #1 and it is my job to help it sound its best.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: I feel I am often called back because I listen. I use my ears to make sure nothing is overplayed or overcomplicated.

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

  10. A: I like to call myself a 'Pop' musician, but I've done work with big bands, orchestras, and film/TV scores. I'm most comfortable in contemporary genres and am happy to work on any project.

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

  12. A: It's not about how many plugins you have, but how you use them.

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

  14. A: I'd love to work with Ariana Grande or Demi Lovato, especially with their most recent albums having more of an old school approach to writing, I think it would be really fun to be with them on stage or in the studio.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: Funky R&B with Blues and Gospel influence, and a touch of Jazz and Rock

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

  18. A: I was classically trained on Piano since age 3 and picked up a guitar at age 13. I've been gigging/ recording since I was 15 and began producing at 18.

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

  20. A: Macbook with Logic/Protools/Kontakt/etc. Nash Guitars Strat Fender P Bass Taylor Acoustic UA interface

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

  22. A: Be straightforward and honest. Theres no such thing as too descriptive. The more I know about your expectations and style/sound you are looking for, the easier it is for me to produce the results you want.

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

  24. A: I'll often ask for a soundalike or an example of what they're looking for. I'll also ask about the turnaround time and other services if needed.

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

  26. A: It's not a hobby.

  27. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  28. A: What is your turnaround time? 2-5 business days depending on the project.

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

  30. A: That I am able to support myself playing and recording.

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

  32. A: I promise to deliver excellence to the best of my ability.

  33. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  34. A: The technology today is crazy enough that it's hard to tell the difference between the two, but if I had a choice it would be analog.

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

  36. A: Marc Malsegna, Noa Vlessing

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

  38. A: "Leave Me Hanging" by Bryce Mathyer is my favorite song I've worked on so far. I produced, mixed, wrote lyrics, recorded guitar and bass on it. I'm very happy with the final product and I love that it captures an old school style with modern elements.

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

  40. A: I'm mainly requested to play electric and acoustic guitar, then Music Directing/Arranging second, and production third.
