Richard Emery on SoundBetter

I'm an award-winning producer, songwriter, composer, and multi-instrumentalist based in Los Angeles. I've been fortunate to work at some of the best studios in the US and Europe and always love working with new artists! *For non Los Angeles based artists, I am able to run your session remotely through zoom so you can focus on what you do best!

Over the years, I've helped various singers and bands take their demo and help develop it into a fully produced track. Whether it's adding a rhythm section to adding strings to your track, I always approach with the mindset of what is best for the song! I've worked on Indie, Pop, Hip Hop, Jazz, Folk, Country, Rock, Gospel, and more!

With my clients, I always offer consultation as far as best release and promotion strategies. This is included with my producer fee. One of my recent clients just got over 150,000 streams in a little over a month with the implemented strategies.

Working remotely is not an issue. So, no worries if you don't live in Los Angeles. Feel free to reach out with any questions you have and I would love to hear about your music!

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

He is attentive and professional and never has a shortage of creative ideas to take your project to the next level. He has the ear, talent and drive that you want out of a producer and I always look forward to working and creating with him.

Interview with Richard Emery

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

  2. A: Make sure you find someone that you enjoy working with and will be patient with you. Making music is a very personal thing so you want to make sure you're comfortable with the person who is helping you out!

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

  4. A: Always do what is best for the song!

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

  6. A: I work in a lot of genres so I'm always open to working with various artists! Some of the genres that I've produced in the past are Indie, Pop, Adult Contemporary, EDM, Folk, Country, Rock, Hip Hop, Gospel, and more!

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

  8. A: Typically, I get a demo from an artist or band and I start building production around that. Most of the time it's just a voice memo but that is more than enough to get started. I usually ask if they have any references, other tracks they have, or what they have been listing to recently. We go back and fourth until the artists approves the production, then same thing with he mix, and same thing with the master!

  9. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  10. A: I have a studio in Los Angeles with top of the line mics, outboard gear, various instruments, tons of virtual instruments, and a lot of plug-ins. I am able to track vocals at my studio if you are local, but I have also ran sessions remotely via zoom if you're not in LA.

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

  12. A: I generally offer my clients an all in one package as far as full production, mixing, and mastering. It makes it easier, especially for new artists, to have someone walk you through all the different process if needed since it can be overwhelming at times. But I'm here to help!
