Stel Furet on SoundBetter

I write great songs and have a knack for that special lyric combined with a perfect melody, that hook. I've been writing for over 20 years, though it was fairly recently that I heard one of my songs on the radio for the first time. I want every artist to feel the way I felt when that happened.

I've done co-writes, ghost writes, licensed songs, and released my own music with some commercial success. I top-line, collaborate, or I can write an entire song based on your idea. I typically start out with a zoom call, and go from there.
I understand what it means to be an indie-artist trying to figure out how to follow your passion in a world where the artist has been devalued and it's difficult to make money, yet everything and everyone seems to nickel and dime you just to get your music out there. So I try work for a reasonable fee, and am willing to work for splits.

I pride myself on being professional, and easy to work with. A song is words & melody, most any song can be put to any genre.

  2. A: Absolutely, Mike Butler (producer) and Alex May( Drums).

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Whatever is appropriate for the genre and the mood. Though personally I do lean analog.

  10. A: Bon Iver - I feel we've taken similar paths.

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

  12. A: Rock mostly, but lately more writing more Americana and collaborating with an EDM artist.

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

  14. A: I can write from a general idea or collaborate to improve. I have 30 years of lyrical ideas, inspirational assets and melodies I can pull from. Often a collaborator will have a small piece. I typically head down a few different of exploration depending on genre, and if time permits I like to let things sit with everyone for a few days. I work with each client to determine number of revisions based on their experience or circumstance and if it's not used I don't get paid.

  15. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  16. A: A 4 song EP of my own, and some topline work for a client.

  32. A: Laid Back, detailed, deliberate.

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

  34. A: When you get a vocal dialed in, snap pics of all settings on all devices, and keep a journal of as much of the studio atmosphere as you can. Makes it easier to recreate that same feel.

  35. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  36. A: Helping other artists realize their vision.

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

  38. A: Lyrical content, visualization set to appropriate melody, and stickiness.
