Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Listen to the vocals first on soundcloud, Spotify etc. Look up your artist and make sure the vocal fits your interests. Because nobody is able to fake his voice.

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

Q: Can you share one music production tip?

Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill are catchy melodies, in production as well as in singing.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring catchy melodies and simple lyrics, which are sung with as much emotion as possible!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically I listen through an instrumental a few times, and start to freestyle a melody and lyrics over it. From the freestyle I end up taking the melody + the basic theme of the lyrics. Then I start filling in the gaps and work out the freestyled lyrics into a whole song. After everything is written I start recording multiple takes, so I end up with enough to comp a solid lead vocal and have more takes as doubs ready. After comping I apply vocal processing to make the vocals sit in the backing track well.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My Studio is based in my own Cellar, it has great sound isolation and both my microphones are easily accessable. I record into a Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 3rd gen directly into FL Studio (since I don't have enough money for fancy analog gear :( ).
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Most inspiring artist are; Fred Again, Bruno Mars, Harry Stone
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly write Lyrics, try to keep them catchy and sing them with as much emotion involved as possible.
