The Music Producer Music production in itself is an art and is usually unknown to the listening public. The majority of people who listen to music do have their favorite artists and bands, but few dig deep enough to see who is responsible for the song and the overall sound of the record. Have you ever listened to a record and got drawn into the emotions of the record, so much so that you could actually feel what the artist is feeling at the time they recorded it. It is more often then not the producer who pulls that emotion out of the artists or bands they work with, and makes sure that is the emotion that ends up on tape at the end of the day. The music producer is usually overlooked and is, at times, nothing more then a by line in the song credits. It is the music producer that makes the record sound as it should. The producer also takes a lot of risk because it is his decision in the end that could make the song a hit or make the song a flop. A lot different then a movie producer, the music producer is more like a director. Although there may be some other elements to the job, including, administration, management and sound engineering. The most coveted producers are those that bring to the session a great deal of creativity and insight. There are many ways a producer can work their way into the field, and many different levels a producer can attain. Anyone that has a love for music can use their talents to produce records. A producer with no musical ability could be a great people person able to coax an artist or band into giving a great performance. A timid songwriter might be able to spot a potential star and have the uncanny ability, flexibility and humility to collaborate on the next hit song. And some rather stay in the shadows but are never done without leaving the album or record with that golden touch. When you get to the more experienced producers they lead every aspect of the album creation. They write most of the music and lyrics, they play some of the instruments, and even mix the record giving it that signature sound. Then there is the producers whose name and ties with a new act could ultimately be enough to catapult them into the charts. Whatever your style, whatever your genre, the music producer should take center stage because it is the music producer who will make or break a song. So the next time you are listening to your favorite songs have a glance at the credits, you would be surprised at how many of the same people are involved in creating many of your favorite hits.
