SOuLO

Check out and share our SOuLO Interview. This interview is part of our new Producer & Engineer Q&A Series. In this interview series we feature exciting producers, mixing and mastering engineers from all walks of life. As always: Share & Support!


Please introduce yourself real quick. Tell our audience about your background and how you go into doing what you´re doing right now.


My name is SOuLO and I'm from St. Louis, Mo. I graduated from the Ex'treme Institute with my associates in Music Production and Management. Every since graduation I've got the opportunity to work with some amazing people such as Alonzo "Zo" Lee, Adam "Wyshmaster" Cherrington, Wayne Adams, Lydia Caeser, Bryce Green and Carl Nappa to name a few. My partner (Darryl "dB" Bennett) and I developed a production team known as Noisey Neighborz and you can check out some of our work at NoiseyNeighborz.beatstars.com !


Please tell our audience what projects have you been working on in the last years?


We create R&B, Hip Hop, Trap, Pop and tracks for TV/Film. Our goal for each track we create is to be able to tell a story without words and I think that is what separates us from most. We want you to see the vision before you even write a single word.


What are you currently working on? Do you accept clients and and what kind of projects/work fits your profile?


We are currently working on our artist "Jones Boy" EP. On our website (NoiseyNeighborz.beatstars.com) you will find over 50+ beats that you can listen and purchase at! We are also looking for dope singer/songwriters so if you know someone or you're that person you can contact us at: noiseyneighborz@gmail.com.

How do you get gigs? Can you share any tips?


I've found that depending on what style you play you can go to your local clubs and bars and ask if they need bands. Some will pay and some wont but sometimes its about getting your foot in the door and might have to do it for free for a little bit. But if people enjoy the entertainment they'll come back to see you.

Do you have good promotion tips for other musicians?


I use social media my top sites I use are Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. I feel like I can reach more people. But also being consistent with posting is a huge key. it wont have overnight but if stay consistent your fans will always be looking for your that new song you drop every Friday at Noon.

Once you discovered new music, do you tell others about the new music/artist you discovered? If yes, how exactly?


“Yes if the artist/music is dope I share it with others, ill send them the link or soemtimes ill make a post saying to check this song out!

What is your number one tip to improve your music production or songwriting skills?


I would say really study your craft, do some research for example, for beatmakers read the manual about the software you use, Try to learn every shortcut, every quick key. You want to know the software from the back of your head! For producers and artist/songwriters listen to the billboards chart and pick songs from it and see what made it a hit, study the sound and try to recreate it to even get a better understanding of the song.

What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?


When you struggle with finishing song take a break from it, every now and then you get writers block and that's normal. But take a break from music and do something that inspires you! It could be taking hikes, watching other producers, artists, musicians create! Whatever inspires you go do it and then come back to the track and that'll help you get through your song
