Interview with Evan Hopper

  1. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  2. A: Be very specific with what you are looking for. Communicate to your musicians clearly and expect the same from them. Possibly have midi or rough tracks provided for guidance. Provide specifics for fxs, like delay times. The more you provide before the studio musician even hits record, the better.

  3. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  4. A: My Music Man Y2D, Interface, MacBook with Logic, Neural DSP Archetype: Nolly plugin, and a good pair a headphones.

  5. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  6. A: I've have been teaching guitar for a few years now, and want to get into share my musical gift. I enjoy writing my own music and contributing to others music. I have limited experience as a Studio Musician, but I will provide a service you won't regret!

  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: My style is mostly rock centric, but I'm a sponge. I take my influences from any genre and try to add it into my playing style. From Finger-Picking on an acoustic guitar to lightning fast metal shred guitar. I don't discriminate!

  9. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  10. A: Neal Morse. He is incredible!! He writes some of the best progressive music ever created, and he does it so consistently.

  11. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  12. A: Never underestimate EQ! It's the most powerful tool you have.

  13. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  14. A: I typically work on Rock music. Ranging from Metal to Worship music. I can provide guitar for many genres, but rock would definitely be my strength.

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  16. A: My strongest skill would be providing a high level of technique without sacrificing melody.

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

  18. A: I bring cohesion to a song. I'm listening to all the parts provided and making sure I add to the song. Whether thats re-enforcing the rhythm section or creating more interest in a lead part, I try to fit perfectly in the track.

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

  20. A: I typically listen to the track to better understand what I'll be playing on. I listen for themes and certain parts that I can play off of. My main intention is to serve the song. I then loop sections until I have the part ready to record. I'll then listen back to my take to make sure I'm happy with it.

  21. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  22. A: I have a humble studio setup with a two channel interface and Yahama HS5 monitors. I'm running Logic Pro X for my DAW. I have Mesa Boogie amps, mainly a Mark V:25. I also have a great amp sim software by Neural DSP, so I can certainly dial in any tone you need!

  23. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  24. A: I'm most proud of my solo album entitled "The Journey". I did everything on the album. I wrote it all, programmed it all, played it all, and mixed it all. You can listen to it on most streaming platforms or on my YouTube Channel.

  25. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  26. A: Both. When you approach them as writing tools and use them to inspire you, you can't lose.

  27. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  28. A: I get a chance to share my love for music with other people!
