Discuss how you find the sounds that fit your vocals.

I experiment.  I usually find the sounds and work the vocals in.

Tell us how you come up with ideas to create your lyrics.

I think I’m a little bit different from other artists on how they create the music.  For me, the music creates the lyrics.  The music puts me in a mood.  I derive emotion from the mood, and then put the emotion in a setting.

Tell us how you ensure the music producer balances your vocals with the instrumentals properly.

The mix is always fluid.  I think because of my unorthodox style of writing and developing the music, it can be difficult to find the balance.  I feel we’ve done a really good job with ‘Dispirited’ and the other songs that can be found on the website.

Discuss the recording process of this song.

I start all the songs on acoustic guitar and then move them to the computer in my home studio.  Once I’ve figured out the “canvas”, I move it to a studio to add the analog and vocals.

Tell us your experience recording the vocals.

I don’t sing…I wish I did, but I wasn’t blessed with the gift.  I’ve been blessed with working with some very talented vocalists as is the case with ‘Dispirited’ where Katie Shorey lent her amazing gift.

Tell us how you ensure your songs sound well.

It’s a process.  We mix…I take them home and listen and listen and listen…make notes and bring back to the studio.  It can go quick or slow.

.

.

State the best means of generating income in today’s music business.

Generating income at an independent level is extremely hard.  Having access to social media, internet, etc. helps to some extent.  I think it’s having a unique vibe to your offering.  I’m hoping that through the video series I’m creating on the website will allow a visual presence as well.

.

.

.

 

State the people involved in creating this song and their roles.

I wrote and laid down the instrumentation for ‘Dispirited.’  Katie Shorey provided the beautiful vocals.  Robert Eibach from Del Oro Studios engineered, mixed and helped with the production of the song.

.

.

.

 

Explain how you get involved in music.

I’ve been around music all my life.  My parents always played various instruments while I was growing up.  I always wanted to do something with music no matter how large or small.

.

.

.

 

State your favourite song and the reason.

It’s hard to state a favourite song because that varies with my emotions.  If I’m happy, I like more upbeat music.  If I’m down, I like more solace vibes.  I’m all over the place.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your opinion on the use of digital effects on vocals.

I like using effects on vocals.  I look at vocals like any other instrument.  I think you can be creative with them, but again, you can have too much…just like any other instrument.

.

.

.

 

Explain the relevance of creativity to music.

I think it’s important to be creative in all aspects of art.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the steps to take before going into the studio to record.

As mentioned earlier, I like to have a song ready to go before I record.  I have the “canvas” ready and then put the colours on in the studio.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you know about your fans.

 They have good taste in music!

.

.

.

 

Tell us if you see music as a rewarding career.

I don’t see music as a career…I see music as a necessity for my sanity.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you will do apart from music.

My family is my other focus apart from music.  I love them dearly.

.

.

.

 

Tell us if you will prefer to watch a movie to listening to music.

I like both mediums and it also depends on my mood.  However, there’s nothing like going on a long drive with a great playlist.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the song.

‘Dispirited’ is a rather obvious song.  It’s about a love breakup and the pain that goes with it.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

Hendrix, fortunately enough, is my last name.  I would be a liar if I said I wasn’t trying to capitalize on the familiarity of the name.  On top of that, I like the logo that was created to go with the name as well.
