Jason Valentine has learnt to produce sounds through his own unique techniques and process. We were glad to catch up with the musician as we discussed how the platform has helped him pursue a career in music as he releases fresh new material.
#1 Tell us a bit about yourself and your background.
I am a Musician and Designer who believes in creating without boundaries. I strive to create energy filled content that has never been heard before.
#2 How’re you enjoying the platform, what benefits have you noticed so far?
I enjoy Music Gateway very much, especially the efficiency and control it gives you. There are other amazing benefits such as being able to open projects and have them met by a community of talented Musicians and Industry Professionals. I've met some amazing artists here and many of them are serious people who are looking to move their career forward in music. Another benefit is the Pro Members Packs. Within this, you can find Publishing, Legal Services, and other amazing opportunities. I myself am an independent publisher so to have all of these tools to assist and move my career forward is a BIG plus!
#3 You’ve done quite a few projects, are any of the results being released anytime soon for people to check out?
Yes, In December I will be releasing an EP called Apex and also will be releasing some of the Album that I'm currently producing with a few artists I've met on Music Gateway.
#4 What is your inspiration behind the unique sounds and music you create?
The inspiration for all my pieces is what I feel. It is both emotion and energy and sometimes could feel as though something is clawing to get from within me.
#5 What are the main advantages for you with running projects through the platform as opposed to working with existing connections?
The main advantages I would say are the amazing workspace and resources offered on this platform.
#6 How has the platform helped you grow/pursue a career in music?
Music Gateway has taken what I do to the next level. I now am working on a few albums and individual pieces which would have taken months to find the perfect candidate and coordinate.
#7 What advice would you give to other members looking to utilize the site to aid their career?
Make sure your profile which includes your bio, images and songs are up because one thing people look to see is if you have content, especially if you pitch without any examples. Pitch to projects but also host your own as well, you would be surprised how many talented people are willing to peruse business with you. Make sure to communicate, there are amazing people in this community and the way you present yourself in a conversation means a lot.
