Interview with Rebymel
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm especially proud of my latest personal projects 'I'm Here' (Acoustic Piano Version) and 'Colors in the Rainbow'. These songs really represent me right now. They're a sum up of all the process and progress I've done so far. For the first time, I can say that I've done all by myself. And I'm happy that I took part in a piano composition contest for Yamaha. It's a big achievement for me.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on developing my skills as a singer/songwriter and learning something new as a person. It keeps me motivated.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I don't promise what I can't promise. I do what I can do.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Question: Do you really do all by yourself? From the lyrics to the video of the song? From the copyright registration to the music distribution? Answer: Yes, I do.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Never judge a song by its cover.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Acoustic pop /rock.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: All at my hand.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Tommee Profitt, Jimmy Sax, Yanni, at the moment.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Anastacia because I was lucky enough to meet her and she's a warrior and a down to Earth woman with a big heart and an incredible artist. She's been an inspiration for me since I was a teenager and I can feel from her lyrics and her songs that we have something in common.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog for the old school music makers and digital for the new generations.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Creativity, expressing myself.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Ideas come to me suddenly. It might be a melody that I start humming. Or I might get inspiration from a catchy instrumental refrain or sample. Once I choose the tempo, the key and the chords, I write the lyrics. I play the song some time to bland the voice with the piano. I record it and while I play the acoustic version back, I think about the arrangement and if some background vocals could fit in. If so, I proceed recording the other instrumental or vocal tracks. I usually like to have all the tracks sounding clearly and naturally, but I sometimes use some effect, too. Last two steps are tracks automation and sound mixing. The audio mixdown is finally ready to play. (I maybe missed some passage.)
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, Cubase, microphone, keyboards, external audio interface. My basic equipment for my recordings.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been doing this since I was a young girl. I wrote my first lyrics when I was 12. I recorded my first original song at 20 years old. I attended a music school for 6 years. I was hired as a singer (soloist or member of the choir) in many classical operas. I was a vocalist in 2 rock cover bands for a total of 6 years. I traveled abroad and worked as a co-songwriter in some musical projects.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If you can feel that thrill when you have a new idea, never give up on it until your song is ready.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Just one? Ok so.... creating.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Original, expressive, communicative, moving.
