Eddie was very professional, He asked me questions right away for him to brainstorm the concept and he really knocked the ball out of the park with this project. Will be a repeat client so if you guys are second guessing yourselves then don't because he is a hidden gem on SoundBetter I'm just glad i found him now before he is super busy! Look forward to doing more work with you Eddie!
Eddie was really easy to work with, he has a versatile stile of rapping and he has very good return response and work ethic.
Another well done job by my man Eddie.
He is truly a very skilled & versatile writer.
Eddie is a very talented song writer and I look forward to working with him again soon.
Interview with Eddie Royal
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My first full album. I was able to work with various producers and portray my musical vision in the process.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A few clients on Soundbetter's website and my next personal album.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I don't know anyone on this site
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. It's just mainly how I learned the craft and it's ever-changing. Being able to go back in years later on things you've done with the ability to improve them with less work is a phenomenal feat in my opinion. Plus it's helping music artists get music out faster and efficiently.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That each process isn't just a job to me. I actually want to take pride in the music that I provide to all of my clients.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Working with new talent
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Can you write me a song like "XYZ" artist flow from "XYZ" track. Normally my answer is yes.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That everything is easy.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are you going for in your music? What type of feeling are you looking to portray? Where do you pull your inspiration from as far as artists?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be specific in your requests if you want them to write more from your feeling and concept. But, if you are allowing them to create something for you then you have to be open to following their process.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Solar Powered generator, Laptop, Microphone, headphones and Speakers.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Always wanted to be an artist as the doorway into the music business. It's been about 14 strong years of pursuing music and the music business.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Jhene Aiko, Kehlani, H.E.R., Drake, J Cole and Jay Z are at the top on my list of artists I'd love to be able to work with.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Sometimes less is more. Try not to over saturate your work whether it's writing or music production.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip Hop & R&B music are my most genres worked on. I can also write Pop Music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Writing is my strongest skill.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Feeling. I bring feeling whether it's energy, happiness, sadness, etc.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For my own music and writing I like to draw inspiration from the production first. How it makes me feel and what I want to write about from that feeling are big parts of my process. I take the same approach when I write for someone else. We talk about what you want to portray on the track. What's your concept, etc? Then we build from there.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Seemingly standard setup: PC Desktop Pro Tools FL Studio Studio One Rokits 20" & 50" monitors Behringer Mixer MXL Mics
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm inspired by Jay Z's business approach to the music industry as well as his lyrical abilities. I also am inspired by Drake and how he has changed Hip Hop/Rap for the current age. A lot of my songwriting inspiration comes from people like The Dream, Neyo, Brandy, Brian McKnight, Tank, just to name a few.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Song writing and engineering
