Endorse Sam Killeen
  1. Review by Danny Groenland

    Sam plays on 3 of my album tracks and he did an amazing job. The three songs are so different and yet he captured the vibe perfectly on each one, not just on a technical musical level but also connected on an emotional level, tapping into the feeling and the story behind each song. He will make your track sound better, guaranteed!

Interview with Sam Killeen

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

  2. A: I work on a wide variety of styles in live performance and in the studio. This ranges from pop, rock, folk, jazz, metal, rock, hip hop, electronic and traditional irish music.

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

  4. A: The most important aspect of the song to me is the meaning or story behind the music. Therefore I always ask clients to give me details about what the song is about and what it means to them so that I can align myself emotionally with the music before I press record.

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

  6. A: I usually work from 10 am to 6 pm in my studio. Either recording, writing, mixing, or learning material. Often times when a deadline is time sensitive I work well into the night until I've done all the work that is needed.

  7. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  8. A: In my home studio, I have a wide variety of valve amplifiers, digital amplifiers. Microphones, Electric and acoustic guitars. I record using Ableton. With this equipment, I can cover an extremely wide variety of styles and tones to suit most genres.

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

  10. A: Recording and touring.
