Interview with Chris App

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Digital because of the versatility and accessibility for a broader reach of musicians to deliver high-quality work without needing thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of dollars for equipment.

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

  4. A: I promise to put my heart (sounds cheesy but it's true) into the riffs and solos I create for your music because this is my favorite thing I could possibly work on, and while it takes a lot of effort, it's pure joy when the final result is reached.

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

  6. A: What is your song's chord structure? What style are you aiming for? Is there anything you have in mind for a solo or riff you would like me to aim towards?

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

  8. A: This is currently my side job but have been producing music for nearly 10 years.

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: I would describe my style as groovy blues with an upbeat indie twist.

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

  12. A: While a compressor can be very useful, it is not explicitly necessary if the track is recorded well and may better serve the song to avoid using it if possible.

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

  14. A: I recently released two of my songs, "Amethyst Kiss" and "Blue Water" that have been very positively received. I was the composer, producer, mixer, guitarist, and singer-songwriter for both of these tracks.

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

  16. A: I am working on my own singles that vary between instrumentals and traditional vocals.

  17. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  18. A: I absolutely recommend working with Nate Kohrs for music production and Brandon Chase for pop/country vocals.

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

  20. A: I would love to work with Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys since he works with many artists from different genres to create some really interesting tracks and ideas.

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

  22. A: I usually work on Indie Pop/Rock, Blues, Funk, and Lo-Fi songs.

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: My strongest skill is my knack for creativity and execution when making a riff or solo from scratch.

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

  26. A: I bring a unique ability to create catchy/memorable riffs and provide guitar solos that are tailored to each song (not shredding unless specifically requested). I take a lot of pride in my ability to create these melodies that enhance the song's energy.

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

  28. A: I receive the basic song structure, including chords, and then I send back the riffs/solos the customer wants. I offer 2 revisions per service unless there are major revisions required.

  29. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  30. A: I use a Pro Studio One 5 DAW, a Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 AI, & Boss ME-80 Effects Pedal. My guitar collection includes an American Ultra Stratocaster and a Taylor GS Mini-e Koa.

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

  32. A: John Mayer, KALEO, The Black Keys, Bruce Springsteen, Marcus King, and Eddie Hazel are some of my music role models.

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

  34. A: I love guitar work involving the creation of solos and riffs, but I also thrive with rhythm and chord structures. While I am relatively new to SoundBetter, I have worked with premium singers and producers on some of my own tracks, so I am familiar with the SoundBetter job process.
