This is my second time working with Darren on a song. Once again, it was an outstanding experience. Darren delivered (over-delivered!) a wonderful vocal arrangement and production for my song. He is creative. His tracks sound excellent. He pays attention to the little details that elevate a track and comes up with great ideas and harmonics for the song that I would not have thought of. I am very happy with the results of our collaboration. Thank-you, Darren!
Darren crushed it again as always! Awesome work, fresh ideas, and quick turnaround... looking forward to next time!
Words can't explain!
He is THE go to guy always. If you have a tight schedule he will hook you up no doubt. He has even fixed one of my songs I needed a fix on or I’d go back to the studio to re-record. Nope he duplicated my voice on the wrong sung line and saved me so much time and effort? Who does that? Yep it be Darren, always the best!
AMAZING! Absolutely stellar vocal skill and creative work executed by Derren. His creativity took the song to a new emotional level. The blend of his vocals with my own gives the song diversity and fullness, SO AWESOME!
Thank you Darren for you great communication, professionalism and of course you bada$$ creativity and vocal prowess
Beautiful work as always!!! Don't sleep on Darren
I am working with Darren non stop, I hope I am one of his top clients. He know exactly how I operate and always willing to elevate all of my music. I can't imagine a better partner to work with on a consistent basis who gets it right every single time.
Darren is amazing! He is awesome to work with, and was determined to understand and accomplish my vision. 10/10 final product and collaboration process. Already looking forward to the next time.
Darren is a awesome vocalist and songwriter.... amazing...
I hired Darren for his vocal tone and to my delight, got so much more. Given free rein to create a complete vocal production over the track, Darren exceeded my expectations by a good bit. He was easy to work with, produced a great vocal and just as important, delivered an extensive package of lead, doubles, harms and adlibs that were so easy to mix with. I’m very happy with the work we did together, would certainly work with him again, and recommend Darren unreservedly.
Darren is a fantastic professional, he made an excellent work! Thank you, Farren, and I'm looking forward the next time we have a deal!
I enjoyed working with Darren for he is a great singer ! He sang on a remix and I really like how he sang in a different way from the original singer, adding some nice chorus !
Always dependable, Darren delivered everything to the T despite a busy schedule and an incredibly fast turnaround. Incredibly talented - would definitely work with again!
Collaborating with Darren was an extraordinary journey through melody and emotion. His voice carried a rare depth that intertwined seamlessly with mine, creating an almost magical resonance long after the music ended. His sheer passion and emotion he infused into every note were not just heard but felt, weaving an intimate connection between our voices. He's helpful and patient, and this is an attribute most artists look for.
It would be not fair to just call Darren a good pro. He is a GREAT pro and unique talent, very musical , creative, great harmonies and ad libs added, fast, easy to work with. Highly Recommend! Thank you for your great vocal tracks. CA
Always love working with Darren. Amazingly talented artist
Simply fantastic. Can’t say better two word’s except maybe…absolutely marvelous or unbelievably talented. Haha. He added bgvs to a layered intricate arrangement and his vocals tied in perfectly. Very difficult to blend so perfectly yet he does such so seamlessly. He’s your vocal guy! Go no further!
Great job as always. Quick and precise! Thanks.
I honestly can't say enough about Darren, words can't come close to achieving the praise he needs for his pure talent and ear for back up vocals in my case. He is so good I handed him a lead vocal only and had him go to town on a Beach Boys like song. He simply nailed it and saved me so much time in doing my own arrangement and did other parts I couldn't have imagined. He makes your project better. In my case I decided one singer was enough because he did so well! Incredible singer!
Very professional, great voice and quick delivery!
Interview with Darren Fewins
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I tracked, mixed and assistant mastered a track for a client about 4 months ago that ended up being released as a single. She was a fairly well known singer/songwriter in the New York scene. I tracked everything my self using a 64 channel SSL console. I mixed the track using the same console using all types of techniques like parallel compression with Analog compressors. I also performed and co-arranged Backing Vocals on the track with the artist. I'm very proud of the result that came out of that experience.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: At the moment I'm programming some music for a client. He needs backing tracks for his upcoming live performances. I am also helping a client put chords to his original music in a sort of pre-production phase of recording his single. We will be going into the studio to track live instruments in a week.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: If you need female vocals I can totally recommend my friend Bea Go. She does some amazing work.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both have their uses. In most cases you can't beat an analog sounding unit but they are not always easy to get your hands on. Digital plug ins can make a process much speedier and also create a similar result if you are using the right plugins.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to deliver a high quality performance that leaves you satisfied.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: My job is in the music industry. I love everything about it. I think if I had to chose a favorite thing it would, being part of the creative side of things.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How soon can you get this to me? My answer is. "When do you need it by" I always like to get things done as fast as possible. It's good for me to turnover projects faster and good for the client to have things back in a timely fashion. In saying that, I don't like to rush projects without putting the proper time and effort into it. I want my clients to come back time and again.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I can only sing pop music. I am flexible in my styles from pop to RnB, from County to Classical.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: It would have to depend on the material that they present to me.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I can provide you with an extremely high quality performance whether it be a vocal performance or you need your song mixed. Whatever you need doing, I will deliver an extremely professional performance with a quick turn around.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My guitar. My Neumann TLM 103, My computer with Protools. A set of speakers and a channel strip of some sort.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been a professional singer since I was 13 years old. I am now 35 so I have been singing for 23 years. about 7 years ago I moved more into music production and Audio Engineering as well as continuing my singing career.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is contemporary pop. Top 40. I try and create catchy music that sells.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd like to work with someone like Justin Timberlake. I believe he is just brilliant. He thinks outside the box when he creates music and pushes the boundaries and it almost always turns to gold!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: The most important thing I've leant is to make sure your room is sonically sufficient. If your room is not treated, it is lying to your ears.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: So many different styles. Not a whole lot of Heavy metal. Mainly pop, Rnb and Hip Hop.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I've been a professional singer most of my life. So i would say my strongest skill would be my vocal ability. But I believe I bring a strong talent to many facets to the creation of music.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a professional vocal that makes your song stand out from the rest. I also have the ability to add any effects to my own vocals, your vocals or your mix. I can also tune any vocals that you need tuned either with Auto Tune for the T-Pain effect or Melodyne for that subtle, realistic effect.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Depending on the nature of the project, I will listen to the clients needs and address them in the most professional way.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work out of a Grammy award winning recording studio in Downtown New York. It's called Engine Room Audio. I have access to some of the best Microphones in the world. Professional tracking booths and multi platform plugins. We use Lynx convertors and a variation of speakers.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Max Martin, Timberland, Im a huge Justin Timberlake fan.
