Dave Wood on SoundBetter

I've been a touring/studio guitarist for Andra Day, Dua Lipa, Jessie J, Jennifer Lopez, Common, Sabrina Carpenter, Jonathan Butler, Lil Wayne, Hilary Duff, Jesse McCartney, Marie Digby and Norah Jones. Produced/performed songs for Cars 3, Ben Hur, Batman 'Soul of the Dragon', Big City Greens, The US vs Billie Holiday, Hyatt, Genesis and Coca-Cola.

My passion has always been going the extra mile. The extra little spice in a guitar part - tone or texture that gives a song a signature sound.

I love the process of collaboration - finding the right character for a song. I also think my years of production, arranging and composing work adds alot to the end result.

Interview with Dave Wood

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

  2. A: Every day is different. Every job is different and presents new challenges. Also watching clients grow and become better humans through music.

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

  4. A: My production partner Daniel Capellaro and I formed XIXI Music Pro in 2021 catering to anyone interested in creating music - from initial concept to finished product to help with sync placements.

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

  6. A: How can I get my music into the land of TV/Streaming/Movies? My answer: having great music sync reps/music supervisors are attracted to - knowing what that takes, how to make it translate in your music - and reaching out to people with connections to the right people.

  7. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  8. A: Nerdy detail here but lets just say 14 year exploration to get sounds from my head to tangible form. Custom made power conditioner and cables to HIGHLY modified pre's/mic's/converters for the cleanest signal path possible.

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

  10. A: All over the place from acoustic strumming to screaming leads to counter-point guitar lines to hey I need banjo & mandolin on this track. Love the challenge in changing it up.
