" I originally retained him to produce my first CD project, on which he has been instrumental in achieving a better quality than even I envisioned. I highly recommend this man to command and guide any business relating to recording, the producing of recording artists, creative project leadership, or the structuring and negotiating of win/win deals." -- Guitarist and recording artist Don Karg

Why do top artists work with producers?

All studios arenít the same. Most supply free coffee, but no producer. An engineer records what you play. A mixing engineer makes what you play sound great. A mastering engineer puts the final polish on the whole project.

These are all important, but a producer does so much more. A producer helps match the talent with good songs, makes good songs great, assists in capturing a stunning performance, and knows how to make everyone achieve the impossible. An artistic producer also often writes and helps with the arrangements. A producer will also supervise the mixing and mastering.

The successful producer will balance the artistic and commercial considerations in your project with diplomatic, supportive and good-humored efficiency.

The Beatles worked with George Martin. Sting relied on Hugh Padgham. Mariah Carey had Walter Afanasieff... If top talent depends on producers, shouldn't you?
