Interview with Tyler Nigro
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Chill R&B, Alternative Rock, Melodic Hip Hop. Things like Post Malone, Drake, The Weeknd, etc...
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Idea generation - starting from nothing and creating a vibe.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Melody ideas, backing tracks and mixing. But that is just the job requirement. I bring a unique vibe to any song that I work on, as well as dedication to making the song the best that it can be.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I will often send simple instrumentals to artists who will write and record a song over it, then I build out the production and mix the song after.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Helping artists get from an idea (or no idea!) to a finished song.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: One thing that has worked for me is to listen to the track extremely quietly in mono to get a birdseye view and a sense of the overall vibe of the song. It is a fantastic way to check if the changes I make are heading in the right direction.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a hybrid home studio in my basement with a control/mixing room and a live room - although most recordings are just done in the control room! I love to collect preamps - and have a solid list of sonic flavors to choose from. I am a long-time Logic Pro user and I have a solid selection of plugins for creative producing and mixing.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Kevin Parker (Tame Impala) is a huge inspiration to me, especially the work he did on Currents. Top-class songwriting, playing, and production done by one person. Daft Punk and their work Random Access Memories is a constant source of inspiration. I am a fan of Men I Trust, especially their bassist Jessy Caron for his incredibly smooth basslines. I look up to producer Dan Nigro for his journey going from the frontman of As Tall As Lions and for transitioning into a successful production career making Olivia Rodrigo's incredible sounding Sour album among others - and he also has my same legal last name Nigro, which is not very common!
