“The producer’s job is to get the artist’s vision onto the recording” – Bill Keis
OK…so what is a producer?
A producer has to have many skills and wear many hats. Often he/she has to work with the artist or band as a writer, arranger &/or musical director before (and sometimes during) the recording sessions. He/she should be knowledgeable about recording costs and be able to work within the budget.
An extensive knowledge of musical styles is invaluable as a producer, as well as a knowledge of recording techniques, good people skills and a list of good session players.
Often the producer will play on the recording, too. Sometimes he/she has to be a referee, sort of a peacemaker!
And today, the producer is sometimes the tracking, mixing & mastering engineer as well.
So where can you find someone with all these skills?
