With over a decade of recording as well as touring I know what its like to be an artist trying to put your best foot forward. I've been you and can help you make what's in your head a reality.
With over a decade of recording as well as touring I know what its like to be an artist trying to put your best foot forward. My goal is to offer quality services while also not killing the bank. I'm open to mixing, putting full production behind your acoustic recording, (Drums, Bass, Guitar, Keys, Backing Vocals, ect.). I can also master and give you the finished product. If you're a writer and want your songs to come alive, I can arrange them and demo them for you. If you're a singer looking for songs I can write along with my group of writers a song that fits that niche your going for.

Interview with Corey Hunt
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Tyler Hatley - Uwharrie Mountain EP. This was the first project I have recorded and produced that wasn't myself as an artist. I learned a lot and think we made something special that I'm super proud of.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently working on a record for Justin Clyde Williams
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Kyle Mann
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both - Digital has come a long way and at the end of the day, performance is everything.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That I will do my best to deliver something you can be proud of and that I'll treat it as if it were my own.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Making something original.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: What do you charge for one song? Can you send me a demo, and what instrumentation do you think would fit it?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That once you hit the Record button its done.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is an example of the sound you are going for?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Make sure the provider has experience in the sound you are looking for. Be sure that what they fully understand you expectations and you fully understand theirs.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Acoustic Guitar/ Sm7b/ Mac/ Apollo Twin/ LA-2A
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: At 21 I was living in Nashville touring full time as an artist. I spent a decade playing music all over the county and slowly building up my own recording equipment. In 2017 a friend of mine asked me to help him make a record, we did and after that other people seemed to want me to do the same thing.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Country rock and roll - Tom Petty meets Bruce Springsteen meets the Band.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Tyler Hatley because he's one of the best songwriters I know and he's very easy going in the studio.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't over think it. If you do 10 takes, the third was probably it.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I was successful as an artist in the Texas red dirt scene so the country rock/americana folk style music runs pretty deep in my blood.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Songwriting and arrangement.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I have a decade of touring and being a artist in the rearview, so I bring a understanding of what it's like to be an artist trying to make it. Each recording/record feels like the beginning or the end to an artist, these things to me are that important.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to listen to the demo a few times and then play as if I were the artist. From that I start to build ideas around the acoustic guitar and piano.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a large live room/control room with a vocal booth. I great space to do drums and track multiple musicians at the same time. I'm running two universal Apollo's x8p's and have a small collection of outboard analog gear.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Jay Joyce is my favorite producer of all time. With that said I really enjoy Eric Church as an artist. I've worked with Kyle Mann on many projects and he has mentored me and taught me a lot of the ends and outs of making recordings. I hope to one day be as versatile as he is in creating sounds for the artist instead of cause the artist to sound like him.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most commonly I take an artist who has just acoustic demos and create full productions.
