If you have listened to any of my solo recordings, you may note that on almost all of them were self-recorded and self-produced in my own studio.
Owning my own studio and studio space in my home, I do hire myself out for engineering, tracking and production on outside projects. My studio includes a Pro-Tools platform system, a wide array of high end mics and pre-amps and an extremely quiet basement studio for tracking. My upstairs area has 15 foot arched ceilings which make for great results in tracking live sounds.
In addition to my own solo recordings, my production credits are also significant with Azigza and with Lisa Lynne.
My first full foray as a music producer an a recording project other than my own was with Lisa Lynne and Molly Pasutti for the Two Worlds One: Still the Moon CD. Featuring lush orchestration and a full array of acoustic instrumentation, I am extremely proud of this achievement and will happily send you along a sample of this CD to demonstrate my production skills.
The producer's job in a recording is to oversee a recording and an artist's music, to develop and shape the overall sound and feel of a recording project and to see the inherent vision of a musical project see its full potential. Working "behind the scenes," a music producer is something like a director of movie, coaching the musician(s) to get the best performances, perhaps helping to select the best tunes, recommending how much or how little "production" should go into a song or album, helping oversee the recording sessions, directing and assisting the engineering, editing, and mastering of a recording to find the right "sound." A producer may find the right instrument and the right performer for your music; may help score and arrange parts, may help you develop a piece from a few basic ideas into a fully worked out piece of music. The producer will help find for you the right mix, the right master, and help you package your music into a saleable product.
