- My role as a music producer means doing whatever it takes to capture an artist’s ideas and create a successful record.
- When making a record, I draw from both my creative and technical backgrounds.
- I work with artists and their songs to fill-in the blanks, either by doing it myself or bringing in my talented friends in to help.
- My goal as a producer is to marry together an artist’s music with an unique sonic aesthetic that enhances the power of their record.
- Mixing is one of my favorite parts of making a record – it’s the last opportunity to add (or subtract) energy to a song’s production/arrangement.
- Although it can seem like it, creating a great mix isn’t just a technical process. It’s all about presenting the songs in a way that elicits emotion from the listeners.
- It’s all about maximizing the impact of a song and directing the audience’s attention towards the best elements of the production.
- I continue to cut my teeth in NYC as the house engineer at multiple studios, working with a wide array of artists on a daily basis.
- My approach when working as an engineer on a project is to make the raw recorded tracks sound as good as possible, as early as possible.
- When working as both the producer and engineer on a project I’m able to begin establishing the shape of a song from the beginning.
- Once you’ve recorded a balafon, uilleann pipes, tubas, and tablas everything else seems like a piece of cake.
- I team up with artists, companies, fellow music producers and engineers to brainstorm, strategize and implement creative ideas.
- As music producer I understand the importance of social media and know how to maximize its impact.
- I enjoy studying and analyzing trends in all facets of the music business.
- By having worked with not just artists, but also record and publishing companies, manufacturers, lawyers and promoters, I have gained an unique perspective and a wealth of contacts in the industry.
