Engineer Spotlight : Dave Clauss
Dave Clauss has been a good friend of the SweetSounds team for some time now, and is now available here at SweetSounds for sessions! Dave has a decade of experience under his belt, and in that time has been awarded 3 Grammys. Over the years, Dave has also been able to work with tons of notable artists, some of which include : Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Shakira, U2, Paul Simon, John Legend, Janet Jackson, and Ludacris, along with many many more.
Recently, we asked Dave a couple questions about this upcoming year and what it takes to be successful, here's what he said :
Q - "In your opinion, what are a couple key components to becoming a grammy winning producer/engineer?"
A - "The hustle!! But endless long nights in the studio learning, trying, and asking questions. Experimenting in every type of music possible. Just putting yourself out there in general..."
Q - "What is your outlook on 2016? What are you wanting to accomplish this year?"
A - "Probably more full length projects. Finding more talent in the NYC area. Making more great records!"
Q - "What advice do you have to new artists?"
A - "Focus on great song writing. You really need to be prepared and super rehearsed for the studio. It will save you so much time and money."
Here's a song that Dave recently tracked and mixed here at SweetSounds with one of our extremely talented artists, Ish Vitale :
