Production Assistant Alessa Ray Show Take Aways I was very spoiled and I had a luxury lifestyle, what I was lacking was love from my parents since they were very busy. So I had to figure things out on my own, I’ve always been a curious monkey and learn on my own. I always had interest in art, music, playing. In Asia it was considered working class being an entertainer. I had to find my journey and ways since my family was not happy with things that I was passionate about. When I got to Hawaii I started my modeling and music career. I got invited to sing to the cherry blossom festival. I came to LA for acting. I thought LA was glamorous. I did a modeling gig in House of Blues. I had nights sleeping in my car when I was in LA. I think God has the best interest in me, so whatever I’m going through I want to leave up to god but still live the best I can in life. My book is about people I met and their stories as well as mines. Every chapter will be a short story. You can’t fail if god gives you his instructions. Always seek God. We have to connect with our creator to know the purpose. Keep that dream alive. You can’t be a positive person if you don’t know crisis.

26: Artistry & Vision - The Sonic Writers
Do you have the courage to quit your 8-year day job to follow your passion? What is your unique fingerprint as an artist? What is your creative workflow? In this podcast episode, Philip from VisionQuest Sound talks to Shaun Day and Matty Margallo of The Sonic Writers. Producers Shaun Day and Matty Margallo, will share with us their inspiring story of how they got started, but besides that, they will share some tips of how versatility and the power of collaboration can unleash your creativity as a writer, producer or band. They are a duet who work and collaborate with different artists taking their songs and vision to the next level. Episode page https://visionquestsound.com/radio-show/ep-26-the-sonic-writers/ https://visionquestsound.com/artist/sonicwriters/ https://www.instagram.com/thesonicwriters/ Music featured: Sylvia Bosco - Ride, Maggie Bushiri ft Aaeidi - Swing Your Body,  The Sonic Writers ft. Anika Grey & Trevor Augustus - Give Me a Break Show Producer: Philip Garcia | Production Assistant: Alessa Ray Show Takeaways After I quit my 8 year day job I met Shaun Day because I needed some help mixing, and that is how everything started”- Matty Margallo The one thing that I learned is that no one can do what you do as long as building a niche of what’s unique about you and your personality; I think that’s the most important thing as an artist and creator. Regarding to our sound, I don’t know if there is a particular style that we go for, but we try to make as organic as possible. We do R&B, dance music electronic pop music, country. We are a diverse duo to work with; we’re all over the place. We have artists that come with only lyrics, or with full songs, most of the times they come up with songs and it’s up to us to elevate it. We try to work as efficient as possible because of the artist that are compensating us; we want to make sure it’s worth for them. We work in Logic, but we’ll start things in Ableton sometimes, or Protools we go back and forth. Once the producing is done we go to recording with the artists either in a home studio or a studio of their choice and we do the vocal production. After this is done we start with the mix and do check in with the artists to see if they like it, then we send to master and we’re done with the track. With lockdown we do daily live streams to break down songs and to answer questions, since it’s a very strange time we try to keep ourselves as positive and creative as possible. – “I try to build a routine of writing in order to stay active”- Shaun Day. Instagram is the new business card nowadays. Just create. Wake up in the morning and be able to create. Trust the process. Be open to work with other people, reach out, be able to learn and be a creative sponge. Putting the time to master your instrument or your DAW, there’s a lot of resources out there and just being able to reach out to those resources.

This time we have LA based indie singer-songwriter, Masha Alexis on our show. Based in Los Angeles, Masha and her band - The Fam  - are juggling multiple projects as well as preparing for the launch of multiple singles this year. “Our music is all about telling a story and taking the listener on a journey with us.  I truly believe that music, real music, has the power to change the world.  If it’s honest…whether it’s raw vulnerability, childlike innocence and wonder, or a passionate lustful rage. When the music is true, it just feels right.” Masha wasn't allowed to listen to the radio growing up. Instead, she spent her time listening to old 50's and 60's cassettes and all the vinyl records she could get her hands on. It's no wonder you can hear the flavor of smoky blues bars.  But don't be confused, this band is as contemporary and energetic as they come...

02: Mixing Tips For Artists, Get More Emotion From Your Song
On this episode, Philip from VisionQuest Sound recaps our blog from our advice article, 5 Tips to Get More Emotion From Your Mixes by Andrew Samples. Whether you’re finishing a demo at home or releasing a track to the world, one of the most important final steps is The Mix! A good mix is one that pulls the listener into the song, into the performance, and greatest of all…into the EMOTION. Mixing a song is a creative process unto itself. I’ve heard it said that it’s a lot like cooking: You start with all the ingredients, but the end result is about the balance of those ingredients that creates a dish worth celebrating. Too much garlic can ruin your spaghetti, but just the right amount is essential to its success. Let's get it!
