    Stephen is a great communicator, and vocalist! He understood how important the song was to me, and he made sure he took his time with it so he could deliver, and he really did! He really went above and beyond, and I will definitely be hiring him again for the next project! I had a blast working with him!

    I still haven't had Stephen sing on one of my songs.
    I look forward to that happening one day.
    Stephen is more than a talented singer, he is an amazing producer and engineer. He is a talented musician period.
    He cares about his client's needs, taking
    time needed to reach one's final result.

    I hired Stephen Sims for my remake of George Michael's "Father Figure" and he over delivered! 30 tracks of leads, chorus, and double performances all organized perfectly. A wonderful performance by a consummate professional. Thank you, Stephen! Bravo!

    Stephen is awesome! Very kind and accommodating! He has a great ear for melodic production as well and really helped bring my song to a new level. This was my first time working online for a production and I highly recommend Stephen Sims for any project you may have, he really is that musical. He really went out of his way to insure I was happy with the final product and I very much enjoyed and appreciated his talent and professionalism! Thank you Stephen! Hope to work with you again soon!

Interview with Stephen Sims

  1. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  2. A: My strongest two skills are production and vocals. I have been a vocalist for many years now and I pride myself on knowing how to deliver the vocal you are after. I know the time needed to create commercially viable recordings and to achieve it. This has come from years of working with top vocal coaches and with producers in studios globally.

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

  4. A: I bring my creative inspiration, talent and versatility. Every vocalist and producer has their own unique vision. I would say I can bring an honesty and truth to pieces. I like to create music that really speaks to people in different ways regardless of genre.

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

  6. A: I like to start with finding out exactly what the client wants with the project. I can then see how we can both move forward. Before any full production stage, I like to take the piece back to scratch and find out what I need to bring to it. This differs with each project but I like to update my client as I go. I think its good to see a natural, progressive workflow.

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

  8. A: With my TV/film pieces I am extremely inspired by Hans Zimmer, who I believe is a genius of sound design and instrumentation. Melodically I am a huge fan of Danny Elfman, I also have a love for his smaller orchestral arrangements. For contemporary music, I am inspired by Ryan Tedder, George Michael, Depeche Mode, Hurts, Pet Shop Boys and Elton John. I like melody and soul within music & if that can be married with a great production - I want to get on board.

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

  10. A: I've been lucky to have varied work. From session work at high-level quick turnarounds; collaborating on tracks as a featured vocalist - writing the top-line, lyrics; composing for Tv, Film & Game and producing artists E.P. It's always been different. Which I think is musically and technically good for any musician/producer. I think it also shows my artistry, professionalism and versatility well.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: I have a small but well-equipped studio set up. I also use a local studio for further detailed mixing/mastering. I use a Neumann TLM 102, WA -87, a Se 4400a all into an ISA-ONE Focusrite Pre-amp. Logic PRO X is my main DAW. I have all of the latest top quality VST'S including Orchestral Tools - Spitfire Audio - Cinestrings - EWQL - WAVES - Spectrasonics and more. The studio is well equipped for what I need to execute big projects.
