from our Fans
  • Are there any other music supervisors you particularly admire? Anyone out there doing great work?

  • What is your personal favorite music genre?

  • What inspired you to become a music producer in the first place?

  • I would think it would be difficult to obtain the rights to all the music you would want to use. How much does that hinder your choices or are they opening their catalogs to you?

  • How has the fact that Vinyl is about a recording label affected your process for selecting the music in this series and how does it compare to other projects you have worked on?

  • When choosing music do your prefer songs that match the mood of the scene perfectly or using a song that has an opposite vibe to create a feeling of conflict?

  • Do you design each piece yourself? Or do you have the actors dress in a mix of vintage finds and your own designs?

  • With so many songs to choose from, how do you narrow it down to the few select songs you will use? Is there a March Madness bracket system?
