What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Sound Resources charges an hourly rate. So the more you can tell me about your song or project, the closer I can come to giving you an accurate estimate.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I stay on top of the latest trends in marketing music and our engineer Fred Schendel stays on top of the latest in music software and gear. We are endorsed by a major manufacturer of studio / recording software.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Honestly, I was a musician who couldn't find a local studio capable of making a decent recording. This led to a home-studio, which led to a full blown record company, publishing company and recording studio in a very short time. That was in 1994. I never looked back.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We work with a lot of singer-songwriters who need studio musicians and sometimes a little help with their arrangements. We employ the area's top session players at Sound Resources and can put them to work for your project if you need them.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Sound Resources just finished albums for upcoming folk / pop artists Sydney Heath and Bailey McKee.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Listen to the studio's work before you agree to record with them. We always prefer to sit down and meet before taking on a job. That's mainly to allow the customer a chance to hear what we do and find out how we do it.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Serious songwriters need a producer and a studio. Home recordings are fine for making demos - to bring in to the studio! That's it.
