I spend more time at writing camps instead of at home.
I'm finally opening my resources so that I can start to help develop artists. After spending months at other writing camps and studios throughout LA, I've finally opened up my talents to be able to help others and share my advice with the world instead of being selective.
Anyone who's working on themselves to becoming a better artist is the exact type of person I'm looking for, preferably trying to build long term relationships instead of one time sessions.

Interview with MAXXX
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Songwriting including vocal producing, most people need help with optimizing their hook, delivery, flow and getting it to sound more catchy, I can't say I have a recipe but I do know when a song is right.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Daniel Laner, mixing engineer, a personal friend of mine who recommended me to sound better
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Your song quality will go up working with me and you won't want to go anywhere else
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: What would you want to start with? Whatever you want, I'm here to help you leave this room with a better product, whichever way is the most comfortable for you is the best way,
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I don't want to spill my beans :(
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital, it's 2020 and the diminishing returns on analog these days just aren't worth it, that being said if price isn't an option analog all the way because that's how the original tools were meant to sound.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to listen to music
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That it's stressful to do multiple things, it's easier for me if I don't have to communicate something that's easier to do myself, It feels pretty good to be in control of every aspect.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Why do you do it?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Give me an example of what you're looking for out of this session and I'll recommend you to someone else who could do it better if I can't, I'm not looking to take up all the clients in the world as much as I am trying to find the right clients.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Hi! I'm MAXXX.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I don't do favorites, every week it's different!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Songwriting, undeniably songwriting. While I have contributed to songs in other ways, I feel my most effective route is by being there with the artist to walk them through how we're going to explain their dilemma for the song.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Everything! I know that sounds like a lot but I've been making music my whole life a lot of the things involved came very intrinsic and natural to me, I've been in professional big budget sessions as an artist, songwriter, producer and even engineer. This came through a fight or flight instinct, I had nobody to do these things for me starting out, so I started the foundation and built it all from there.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Could be hectic, could be chill, I'm more of a fly on the wall. I've worked with artists who like to skip through songs and move on quickly but I also work with artists who take weeks on sections and getting their sound right, it's all up to my client to set the pace, it's my job to pick it up.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
