This was originally a comment I left in one of the songwriting groups but I thought I'd turn it into a quick blog. Ok, after reading at least 1,345,677,853,576,643 comments in these groups I am going to explode if I don't say this lol.
I keep hearing a lot of people in the songwriting groups referring to pop music in a very negative way. It's as if they are stripping any amount of musical credibility from the whole genre.

I see these "r

I am approached by upcoming, as well as very experienced and established, music producers/engineers on almost a daily basis and 9 times out of 10 the question is asked "How do I get a producer or engineer to pay me to work on their material?".

I have put together 2 complete home studio bundles from the best equipment you can get on a super low roman noodle budget to a middle of the road setup that gets amazing sound for the money.
Prices can go way up

From time to time I find myself working in my studio in Memphis, Tn and while doing what I do everyday (producing, recording and writing music for clients and myself) I think "hey, I should blog this little tip when I get a chance. It may help somebody". Well, instead of waiting until I have time to make an in-depth post I decided to do these little quick but valuable Quick Tips whenever I have the thought.

Musicians, Singers, Songwriters and Producers:
Aren't you tired of just blending in?
Oh, "My band, my music, my album is unique. There's nothing else like it" , you say?
I say BULL. That is a big stinky pile of BULL POOP.
If that were true you would stand out and be successful.
Hey, it's probably not your fault that you don't stand out and that your music gets no sales or attention.
I have found that 9 times out of 10 it is because you don't know how to produce your mu
