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

  38. A: It depends on the project really but as studio practice I write a song every 2-3 days. I spend an hour penning song titles, then once I have one an hour just finding ammo for that title.. then I'm off finding melodies, vibes, lyrics. and by the end of day 2 I need a song. Then my extra time is spent learning and jamming, and vibing cos that's where a lot of the good magic is found.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I've got an Apollo Twin, SM7B, Occasionally a C414 when I'm not on the road, a Gibson 330, Fender American Strat, Martin 000-15m, and of course the complete Waves bundle, and a way to big supply of plug ins.

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

  42. A: Professionally I take a lot of inspiration from guys like Ryan Tedder, Bruno Mars who are artists and writers. As a musician lately I've been heavy into Dermot Kennedy, and Productions by Sounwave, but that being said I listen to absolutely everything. I think everyone does because of Spotify.

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

  44. A: Usually I'm asked to write songs, topline, or just lyrics in veins such as Pop, R&B, Country, or Singer/Songwriter. That's the type of work that's most common for me, but the occasional outlier comes through and is always fun.
