Interview with Calvin
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Right now i am working on a theme song for a world famous production company who are creating a new show.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: If you are looking for a Top vocalist I would highly recommend Tiffany Fred, as I am a huge fan of her songwriting skills and voice.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I have forever used digital as i create custom synths as well as replicate popular sounds, so definitely digital.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is to only take on board a track if i really believe it i something i can make great. If i feel it would be better to refer you to a more suited producer, I will. I wont take on a project just to make money.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love music , so obviously to be able to work with this is amazing!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How long will a project take. It really depends on how far the project is and what state its at.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Sometimes people will email me to master projects , i mix projects but very rarely master :)
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Id like to know exactly what way they want the finished project to sound like! Even if its vague!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: If you're looking for me to do a project regarding vocals don't be shy to show me a work in progress because that what I'm here to help with!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: MY MACBOOK, My microphone, my phone, Food obviously, and a power supply? :P
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Justin Bieber meets EDM
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Ariana Grande because her vocal flexibility is next to none.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Start slow and don't add unnecessary/irrelevant things to the mix. Give the mix time to breathe and it will come together itself.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Usually its Mainstream/Chart pop! Its can range to dance and EDM and sometimes i create soundtracks :)
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is most likely melody writing, i love the moment when ive created a nice emotional melody, i think one of most important parts of a song is the melody, but obviously every part is important!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I can sum this up in one word, I'm a perfectionist. If i think a song ive written is 'ok' i wont use it. I keep going until what i've written moves me in some way, then you know its gonna be good :)
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It depends on what Im doing of course. If its songwriting usually i come up with the concept , leave that and then try to create a really catchy/melodic hook. I am for emtional melodies good rhythm and pop based chords.Then the process just flows naturally.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My equipment ranges from 2 mac monitors with m-audio interfaces and state of the art mis including my new addition the MXL genesis, which is a little gem :)
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
