A Chat with Star Factory Artist Development
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Star Factory is a training ground for singers and recording artists of all ages. [The studio is] operated by artist-development expert Brandon Smith. Our clients are guided along a comprehensive artist-development experience that consists of voice development, stage-presence [training], media training, and songwriting.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
All materials, including our vocal methodology, exercises, and song lyrics, are provided to students. Students are encouraged to bring a voice recorder and a room-temperature bottle of water with them to each class.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We wanted [to be] more than just a vocal school because we’re more than just vocal coaches. We are artist-development experts. We studied the process that Motown put their acts through and thought it would be really awesome to bring back this full-scale development service to the talent of Metro Detroit.
What do you love most about your job?
We love seeing our students come alive when they gain confidence and begin to reach small goals that we set for them in improving their singing voice and performance ability.
