Interview with IvanaLee
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception about what i do is that I cant write in a variety of genres. That is completely untrue. I do have certain genres that I am best at but I believe that when heart and effort is put into a body of work it will come out the way if was always meant to be.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask prospective clients what they want to walk away with? What brings them to this situation? What inspired them to want to start their project and where do they hope for it to go.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with any artist who is open and willing to working with me. I think collaboration is a big deal in the music industry and I'm open to all of the possibilities across all genres.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I would say to just go with the flow, don't get to caught up on the technical side of things.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on my music which has a very melancholic pop feel. It feels like pop music but is also very in tune with emotion and clear with the point that I am trying to get across.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is songwriting.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring emotion to a song. I find that i'm able to show a very well internal and external dialogue. I use a lot of sense bound writing and metaphor in my songs.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When writing i usually start with a story , or an experience, and I write chords. Beyond that point something usually comes to me. I then begin to work on the rhyming , repeating phrases, and figuring out what phrases fit where. Before I know it , a song has developed.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I usually visit a studio to record. Other than that I mainly have a simple set up , I have my piano , My condenser xlr microphone, and I do a lot of producing on the go with garageband.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I feel really inspired by music artists who focus a lot on the songwriting. Taylor swift inspires me a lot with her doing most of the writing on all of her albums. A few others include Joy Oladokun, Mothica, Noah Cyrus, Chelsea Cutler, Holly Humberstone, Sara Bareilles, Alessia Cara, and Lorde.
