I will have the artist create playlists of sounds and songs they would like to sound like. I have them create a Pinterest board to catch their overall brand and inspire themes through imagery.
If there is no connection to the material, an artist won't be able to put their soul into it. In my songwriting sessions, I will try and break down your passions, your trauma, your hopes, your love life, any experience you or someone you know has had or overcome. My job is to find the story you would like to tell. Even if it is a story that is made completely from imagination.
It is important for me to know your sound. Whether the artist is established and I can study their discography or we have a vocal session where I help develop an artists sound, taking into account what makes the voice of the artist unique is very important for writing them melodies and structuring a song.
