Interview with Forbidden Fruit Audio
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: The promise is always you, your individual sound, your art, and it should never be anything else.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: is this a goal or a hobby? is this something you're willing to do whatever it takes for?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Know that, i tend to be unfiltered and upfront, i won't tell you all the pretty glittery things people want to hear choosing brutal honesty at every step.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is more on the unethical, unconventional side. everyone has a system that works for them and there is nothing wrong with that, i just tend to dance between realms.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: We serve all purposes. We build the song from the ground up, from composition to mastering.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: ALWAYS practice to a metronome. It helps reduce your recording time which means less time wasted in the studio
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I mainly focus on hard rock and heavy metal, but will work on all rock genres
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I would not call this a skill but its the guts to try different things, never play it safe, so long as it sounds great
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: The Vision! The goal is to bring the sound in the artists' mind to full fruition.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically, I start off by having a comprehensive conversation with the artist, we touch on key points to make sure that we are both on the same page and can achieve the goals we lay down. Afterwards, we get into the intensive work process. I help the artist pushes themselves to the extreme to capture the magic, to get that last ounce of energy we want the listener to experience. Once all is said and done, we move onto the mixing and mastering. Pretty straight forward, I maintain the artists' vision in mind and contact the artist should anything come to mind or if there is any doubt.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Using an iOS powered hybrid-mixing set up. For outboard gear, I use certain key pieces of hardware that were either chosen or highly recommended for adding texture and that richness that is chased
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Inspired by 80% of all music, production professionals that inspire me are Bob Marlette, Cameron Webb, Andy Sneap, Jens Borgren, Warren Huart, David Gnozzi, and Glenn Fricker
