    On top of having an amazing voice, I appreciate his extensive communication towards the end product. If you can creatively push Colton in the right direction, he will exceed expectations! Best of all, he is not afraid to make his own creative decisions for your song. I honestly improved as a songwriter because of his decisions. Looking forward to our next project later on!

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

  38. A: It depends on the project really but as studio practice I write a song every 2-3 days. I spend an hour penning song titles, then once I have one an hour just finding ammo for that title.. then I'm off finding melodies, vibes, lyrics. and by the end of day 2 I need a song. Then my extra time is spent learning and jamming, and vibing cos that's where a lot of the good magic is found.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I've got an Apollo Twin, SM7B, Occasionally a C414 when I'm not on the road, a Gibson 330, Fender American Strat, Martin 000-15m, and of course the complete Waves bundle, and a way to big supply of plug ins.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: Professionally I take a lot of inspiration from guys like Ryan Tedder, Bruno Mars who are artists and writers. As a musician lately I've been heavy into Dermot Kennedy, and Productions by Sounwave, but that being said I listen to absolutely everything. I think everyone does because of Spotify.

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

  44. A: Usually I'm asked to write songs, topline, or just lyrics in veins such as Pop, R&B, Country, or Singer/Songwriter. That's the type of work that's most common for me, but the occasional outlier comes through and is always fun.
