Frequently Asked Questions
What is a music producer?

Great question!

Music producers are essentially project managers for recording-based projects. They work directly with the artist to navigate the recording process and ensure the finished recording is the best it can possibly be.

A producer’s duties will typically include:

  • Planning all logistical aspects of the recording process
  • Serving as the middleman between the artist & engineer
  • Coaching the artist to perform at their very best
  • Making suggestions to the arrangement & song structure

Many freelance music producers are also well-versed in other relevant skills, such as:

  • Engineering
  • Mixing
  • Mastering
  • Songwriting

Therefore, if you’re looking for an all-encompassing production process, be sure to include any additional skills you require in your project brief.

When hiring a creative, be sure to get a full overview of the videographer’s skills to determine whether or not you’ll need to hire additional personnel for your project (such as a director or a post-production engineer).

Why hire a music producer?

Here’s the deal:

After spending a significant amount of time writing a track from scratch…

...it becomes impossible to hear it from an audience perspective.

Similarly, if you’re focussed on the logistical and technical aspects of the recording process…

...this can pull you out of the creative headspace you need to be in to produce a top-quality product.

A freelance music producer serves as a fresh set of ears on your track, providing the necessary guidance to take things from demo-level to a commercially-viable product.

With a producer handling the logistics, you’re able to focus solely on being the music, leading to a better-quality performance.
