    It was the second time I have worked with Richard and after setting the bar high on the first time, he did not fail to impress yet again. We had quite a precise Idea of what we are looking for and Richard didn't stop till he hit the nail on the head. Thanks for your commitment and kindness again!

    Richard handled an incredibly difficult song to sing (octave and a half w multiple octave jumps) with ease. He is always great to work with and you get what you want quickly and correctly. Another tune down as we have done several together. Recommendation = HIGH

    Richard is an incredibly talented vocalist with a very sharp ear for amazing melodies and beautiful lyrics. Performance was exceptional, communication was outstanding, and the quick turnover was something that blew my mind. A total music package. Couldn't have asked for a better collaborator.

    Track #2
    - a great vocal track provided by the illustrious Mr. Farrell.
    - grunts and groans in all the right places
    - knocked the vocal out of the park

    It's not often you can match the perfect singer with the perfect tune. But there are those few times when magic strikes and everything seems to come together - as it was supposed to be.

    And that magic happened working with Richard on St. Peter's Roll Call, a bluesy, New Orleans inspired song. He was able to capture the emotion and anguish of a man about to die; yet delivers the song in a way that reveals the humor of the inevitable.

    An exceptional performance. Thanks, Richard.

    My first thought was that Richard’s vocal sounded like a final record. His voice is clearly incredible and unique but he interpreted the song so well and made excellent, subtle decisions in phrasing and timing, while always being controlled and on-pitch. I’m not used to vocals being delivered with this level of quality. Everyone has commented on how good the vocals are. It’s worth quoting one message - “We both had tears in our eyes and hugged each other, the rendering is so moving”. Thanks!

    When it comes to Richard's abilities I won't give my opinion or pontificate. I state facts - the guy is next level.

    He has the whole trinity of qualities I look for in a singer.
    Tuning, Tone and Timing. It's rare that a singer possesses all three.

    Richard owns every vocal he does and lyrically he's a demon.

    Richard is an incredible singer, he has soul, technique and passion in abundance. What makes him really stand out is his ability to capture the emotion of the lyric. I spent a lot of time on the lyrical phrasing of our last project and I assumed that when I hired a singer online I would have to go back and forth a few times to make sure the phrasing was right on, no revisions needed with Richard, nailed first time and doubled perfectly. Extremely prompt and a pleasure to work with.

Interview with Richard Farrell

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

  2. A: Trainman Blues. Singer and Songwriter. I am in love with Blues music and I think it's affect on modern and old music is immense. I would love to see a revival of blues. Soul and jazz music have progressed into new and interesting forms, I think this is possible with blues.

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

  4. A: Trainman Blues. A modern day blues project with hiphop production techniques and understated laid back feel.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Both. Analog definitely has a warmer and softer sound, it reacts in a natural way to what you put into it. It's definitely not as portable as digital equipment, as easy to set up or quick in finding new and interesting plugins, virtual instruments etc...

  7. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  8. A: Soulfulness, warmth, guts and attention to detail.

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

  10. A: Being able to work with different musicians, songwriters and producers form all around the world. Being able to express my self in an art form which comes very naturally to me.

  11. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  12. A: When can you have the track ready? That depends on how much guidance you give me, or lee way to be creative. Influences, bar numbers, vocals guides etc...

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: The true message behind the voice.....

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  16. A: What is the overall message of your music? Why are you doing it?

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

  18. A: Listen to the intention behind the voice, many voices have a clear and clean exterior but sometimes the singer does not bring the force of the subject matter/message into the music. I really live what I'm singing!

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

  20. A: A guitar, piano, a Ray Charles and BB King records, a bottle of whiskey and a note pad.

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

  22. A: I have been singing since I can remember. I began playing the piano from age 6. I started formally singing in a choir when I was 8 and received 5 years of music education in the choir school in theory, singing and piano which set me for life. I am 32 now, so I have been at it over 26 years now!

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Simple, understated, warm and gutsy.

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

  26. A: Bill Withers, a master of simplicity and soulfulness!

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

  28. A: If it feels good, and the ambience is right, keep it!

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

  30. A: Blues, soul, folk, electronic, hiphop and jazz music.

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: Listening to the client, vocal intonation and performance.

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

  34. A: Clarity, small details, soul and warmth. I try to bring the best qualities of blues and soul to any song I work with.

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

  36. A: Listen to the track on repeat until I have an understanding of the flow and meter of it. After absorbing it, I allow melodies to flow through me, letting my vocal chords loose and seeing where the sound takes me. I demo the track a few times depending on how happy I am with the melody/lyrics. After this process I am ready to record the track. There are many different routes I can take depending on the wishes of the client and his/her influences to give me guidance.

  37. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  38. A: I have a Mac book pro 15 inch Retina which I use Pro tools and a Focusrite 6i6 as my preamp. A shure SM7 is my go to microphone as it suits my voice best, I have other mics such as a Rode NTK and Behringer AT2020. I have vocal screen and pop shield to create clear recordings.

  39. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  40. A: Singers like Ray Charles, Toma Waits, Nina Simone, BB King and Nat King Cole are some of my favourites. Modern day producers and musicians such as Quantic, The Dap Kings, Jon Hopkins and Dan Auerbach really inspire me.

  41. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  42. A: I am a vocalist and songwriter, so I really embrace giving all I have when singing and writing songs. I really focus in on the small details, intonation, timbre, melody and lyrics, this where I'm most at home. With years of experience recording in studios and playing in various different outfits I am very adaptable and open minded.
