Interview with Kendrick Fielder

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

  2. 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 in college.

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

  4. 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, I think it would be really fun to be with them on stage or in the studio.

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

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

  7. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  8. A: UA Apollo Twin MKII, Yamaha HS8, AKG 414, SM57, SM58, etc.

  12. A: Working on locking in with drums and the click

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

  14. 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.

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

  16. A: Marc Malsegna, Noa Vlessing

  17. Q: Analog or digital and why?

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

  30. 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.

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

  42. 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.
