Papa Satch (Bob Sachnoff) started playing guitar at the age 14 and never looked back. He is a singer/songwriter/producer who’s played on numerous albums with numerous bands. He started his music career as a founding member of the bands “Black Horizon” (during his teen years), “Blank Stare” and “Mercy Hit.” He was an integral member of the seminal rock band “Spoof.”. As producer, he wrote, sang on and organized the critically acclaimed “Actress, Doggin It” album, and has produced and     coproduced the last four Papa Satch’s Albums. In past years he’s toured many of the         top clubs in the N.Y.C. Metro area, and is the winner of the 2007 ‘Best Acoustic Rock Artist ‘ for Svens World Radio . Steve Ronsen is a versatile singer, songwriter, and musician who clearly defines his own unique brand of guitar-driven pop/rock.  He is    also an award-winning musical director. This talented multi-instrumentalist began playing piano, guitar, and drums at a very early age.  Influences include Elton John, Billy Joel, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, James Taylor, Led Zeppelin, and more.  Often compared to the Goo Goo Dolls, Jason Mraz, and John Mayer, Steve Ronsen boasts a guitar sound and vocal combination that are undeniably fresh and original. He is a founding member of the wildly popular band “ Quikdraw.” In the last couple of years they collaborated on the last two Papa Satch Albums, “So Far ’til Now” and now “Soulful Intent.”

“Papa Satch is a Long Island-based Rock duo consisting of Bob Sachnoff and Steve Ronsen. Their newest single, “Shallow Waters”, is a nice guitar-driven tune off their latest LP, “So Far ‘til Now”, which consists of ten well-crafted songs that combines classic Rock, Folk, and a touch of Country. Fans of 80’s Pop or admirers of Tom Petty, The Black Crowes, and REM will love “So Far ‘til Now” because it’s right down their musical alley. Nothing off the grid, just straight up Rock ‘n’ Roll that you grew up loving.”

List the names of those that have supported you so far in your music career and use this opportunity to thank them.

Narrate your experience while recording in the studio or while touring.

I really enjoy the actual recording process. Usually Steve Ronsen and I will listen to a song I’ve recorded at home and begin to set the structure up. We start to lay down the rhythm tracks, followed by the drum tracks.  Next, we layer up the various guitars, bass, keyboards and percussion as we go along, always creating different accent lines. We wrap up by putting in the lead vocal, followed by backup vocals and harmonies. The final step is mastering the track.

Discuss your songwriting. 

I like the experience of songwriting. Usually it starts with me playing different chords on the guitar. I start hearing that certain patterns go together and try to tweak the patterns to tighten up the structure. Then I hear different melodies that go along with the pattern. I start tweaking (experimenting all the way) to create a melody that makes sense to me. I usually structure the song along a verse-verse-chorus-verse- verse-chorus bridge, verse chorus out – but not always.  I then free-associate on the lyrics where I sing along different ones until I come up with a central theme, at which point I start to properly set the lyrics to rhyme. There’s a lot of experimenting and tweaking all along the way.

.

Elaborate on your future projects. 

I plan to promote “Soulful Intent” for most of this year. I will start the process of putting together a band to tour over the summer. In October I want to start recording a new album for release next year.

Tell us what you are doing to increase your fan base.

I am trying to get as much airplay and write-ups in various zines and magazines. I’m already getting a good amount of airplay on the internet and have been happy with the amount of airplay I have been getting on college radio, too.

.

.

.

 

Tell us that point in time you wanted to give up on your music career.

I have thought about quitting numerous times, but I really believe in my songs. I really like them!

.

.

.

 

Go into detail on how you make your instrumentation or melody.

As far as melody, I usually start with a basic idea and keep tweaking until it makes sense to me. That doesn’t mean it can’t be changed. Sometimes I have to walk away from a song and come back to hear a fresh take on it. With instrumentation, it’s the process of layering up the different instruments, tweaking and modifying them as you go along.

Music Licensing is where a song is licensed to a movie, commercial, TV show etc., to be used for the specific purpose, and is basically guided by different rules.

Tell us your favourite genre of music 

My favorite genre of music is Rock.

.

.

Tell us the theme of most of your songs. 

Most of my songs are about relationships: good and bad.

.

Elaborate on this song. 

On this song I wanted to show that I think of the many questions that I contemplate.  These are intertwined with my care for my girlfriend and all these things are a mystery that life doesn’t always explain.

Discuss digital distribution and streaming.

Digital Distribution is where music is distributed to various stores and streaming services so people can buy or stream different songs. Streaming is where a song is played but can only be heard (or in a movie or TV show) without the capability to download and own the song.

.

.

.

 

Tell us numerous ways that artists can boost their revenue. 

There are many ways to boost their revenue. One is to play live and record their gigs for future play (on YouTube, for example). You can sell songs by CD and /or digital stores. Royalties can be gained by getting enough airplay on radio and YouTube and streaming services. Licensing for a movie or other purposes can gain some revenue, too.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your opinion on self-training and enrolling in an educational institution to study music. 

Both have their merit. In studying at an educational institution, you have the support of, and access to all sorts of information from, your fellow students as well as the teachers and staff. The downside is that it can create a rigid structure that can put a damper on the creative process. On your own you might have less access to much of the science of music but the freedom to open up the structure that can limit your exploration of different ideas.

.

.

.

 

Go on at length on what it takes to write a hit song.

That’s a tough question. In my mind a hit song is a song I want to sing along with or one that moves me. It can be a great verse or amazing chorus or a catchy bridge. If I can relate to the lyrics, coupled with a melody that’s catchy, that’s a hit. I think a great song pulls you into it. I try to write my songs to be hits, of course – and I hope I’ve achieved that sometimes.  If I feel one of the verses, choruses or bridges is powerful I think I’m on my way. It’s something I am always striving for.

State the official date of release.

The Official Release date was March 12, 2018.

.

.

.

 

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

The artists name is based on my last name. My last name is Sachnoff and I’ve been known as Satch (my nickname) since I was a child. In high school my friends would call me “Papa Satch,” so I decided to call the band something I was familiar with, and that fans would recognize too.

.

.

.

 

State the title of the song and the meaning.

“Think About It” is about contemplating different aspects of nature, including how my personal life is intertwined with my inner thoughts and my thoughts of the world around us.

.

.

.

 

State the title of the album and the reason for choosing the title.

“Soulful Intent” is based on putting a little soul into the album and my intention to do that.
