A: Timberland or Pharrell Williams because their production is so creative and they create incredibly catchy hooks! Or Julia Michaels because she is an incredible song writer.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Nyman - he is an incredible producer and vocalist with an ear for what's catchy! Nyman is super talented and such a pleasure to work with! https://soundbetter.com/profiles/98991-nyman Christy Carey - he is an amazing and versatile producer! Christy is a super talented producer and musician with such a brilliant work ethic to create exactly what his client's envision. https://soundbetter.com/profiles/344761-christy-carey Chloe Blackwell - she is an incredibly talented and conscientious vocalist and songwriter that I have had the pleasure to collaborate with. https://soundbetter.com/profiles/192492-chloe-blackwell

Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I use a Neumann M147, Universal Audio Apollo Twin X preamp, Macbook Pro, Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO headphones and Logic Pro X in my home recording studio.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being able to sing and make music everyday. I get to do what I love for a living!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Know what vocal sound you're looking for and then find it through the audio samples provided on profiles. Different singers don't just have different tones and ranges but they can also bring a completely different energy to your track. Have a voice in mind first before finding it!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If you haven't received the BPM for a track on Logic Pro X, go to 'Metering' > 'BPM Counter to find the tempo. Once the track has been put in time, recording vocals is much easier in terms of editing and making sure everything is in time!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I will go over the brief provided by the client and then write the vocals if this is required. If not, I will record the written vocals (by following a guide vocal) in my home recording studio using Logic Pro X. Once finished, I will bounce the dry wav files and send them across to the client!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Vocally, I'd say my falsetto and in writing my strength is creating catchy hooks and being able to resonate with genuine emotions and experiences in others.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly write and record top line vocals.
