Interview with Jan Erlandsson
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I start by listen a lot to the current music genre, in order to find in the right mood. After that I start to sing along to the actual tune to get ideas of riffs or backgrounds. Next step I decide what instrument will be on lead. If I arrange for others I put everything in notes (not necessary if it's only me playing). I often put harmonies in the section , but I can equally keep it simple and unison.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Most of the productions from Dr. John, Delbert McClinton, Willy deVille, Muscle Shoals productions and also old school rock and rhythm & blues like Fats Domino, Wynonie Harris, Neville Brothers, Professor Longhair, NRBQ, Ann Peebles, Bettye LaVette...
