I was sitting on my deck listening to an album I hadn’t listened to in a while. My first impression of the music was the impression I always have when I hear new, well-produced music.

It felt big. It felt larger than life. It had energy.

Then I started listening to it like a mix engineer.

And I ruined it. Let me explain. Read more »

I had an email exchange with a client earlier this week I thought I’d share with you.

Mike has hired me to mix and master a few of his songs as well as record and produce some from scratch. As with a lot of my clients, Mike doesn’t live in Nashville, so we do all our work remotely. Mike expressed to me in a recent email that while he loves writing and recording songs, he hates “the drudgery of long hours of filling a song out with virtual instruments when I can’t play the real instrument at all or very well.”

It was over dinner the other night. Pam and I were at the table with our three kids (ages 6, 3, and 3). Lyla, one of the twins, was singing at the table. While I love it when she sings, I told her she needed to stop singing and eat her dinner.

Her reply?

“I have to sing.”

As soon as she said it, I thought to myself, “Me too, sister. Me too.”

Chances are you’re the same way. Maybe for you it’s not singing, but there’s something. There’s a reason you got into music and recording. But with all the plugins and tutorials and microphones and YouTube channels, it’s easy to forget. Read more »
