Interview with Jessica Chertock
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Writing for The Spinners has been my proudest moment so far. I wrote a few songs that will be on their upcoming album and helped them with vocals and harmonies in the studio. It was an honor to work with such a legendary group and to bring a new and modern sound to their catalog.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on a huge catalog of EDM toplines with my collaborators that we pitch to producers around the globe.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Eddie Jonsson has become a great friend and collaborator of mine over the last few months. I would definitely recommend him to any of my clients for writing, vocals, or production.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital for me. For what I do currently, analog gear isn't practical for me.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that you will be happy with the final outcome of your project, and to have open and clear communication with you throughout the process!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The freedom to express myself and do what I love most in the world every single day is truly a blessing.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Most customers ask me about a turnaround time. I'm usually able to work on your schedule and can turn around a completed song in a week or two, but this wholly depends on active and clear communication with my client and making sure we are both on the same page about what is being written.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I would say that the average person who isn't in the music industry just generally doesn't understand anything really about what goes on behind the scenes. I think they think I go to these giant studios everyday and once I write a song it's just done and I'm able to release it the next day when in reality there's so much work involved and so many steps to go through in order to bring a song to life.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask questions that really delve into what my client is looking for in their projects. "What types of songs are inspiring you right now? Do you have a story you want to tell?" Even questions like "How have you been? Do you have anything going on in your life you might want to talk about in a song?" Can really help me get a story going.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be confident and open minded. Don't be afraid to describe what's in your head or bring something to the table in fear of it sounding unprofessional. My job is to help bring your vision to life!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: 1. I would absolutely need my laptop for sure. 2. My interface (focusrite scarlett solo). 3. My microphone (Rode NT1A. 4. A good pair of headphones. Speakers would be too difficult to travel and survive with. 5. A solar powered portable charger for the laptop.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started songwriting when I was 12 years old. When I was 14 I asked my parents for a guitar, and by 15 I was working as a freelance songwriter in Manhattan. I was frequently the youngest person in the room, but I had a great support system around me that encouraged me to not be intimidated, and to believe in myself and in the work I was doing. At the start of 2020 I got invited to do a session for an EDM producer looking for a topline. I ended up as the vocalist on that song and it ended up getting over a million streams rather quickly. That song was "Frontlines" that I released with MKJ, and wrote with two friends of mine. My EDM career continued to snowball and take on a life of its own after that.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style varies to dark and sinister to happy and upbeat, but always with a unique story to tell.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd love to get the chance to work with Charlie Puth one day.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't tire out your ears. You can always come back to it tomorrow. In fact, more often than not, whatever you're working on will sound completely different to you tomorrow.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Normally I work on EDM music, but I like to bring unique and interesting lyrics to the table.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is my ability to write a compelling lyric.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I first and foremost bring a story worth sharing. Secondly I bring a melody that is sure to get stuck in someone's head all day, and the vocal skills to bring that story to life.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I typically like to get an idea of what type of song my collaborator is looking for or inspired by. I ask questions like "Is there is a certain story you want to tell?" or "Is there a certain emotion you're trying to get across to the listener?" and I start writing from there!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a small setup that I am able to travel with easily. it's just my computer, interface, and microphone!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm really inspired by people I consider "storytellers" when it comes to song writing. People like Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, and Olivia Rodrigo.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I most commonly write toplines (lyrics & melody) for my clients, as well as vocal recording.
