I haven't understood a bar of music in my life, but I have felt it. - Igor Stravinsky -

Your best mixes are going to come from the best productions, and the best productions from the best songs. - Mixerman -

The true artist knows he is unlike other people and, ultimately, must walk this road alone. - Michael Beinhorn - 

Creative things happen to creative people when they don't allow themselves to be paralyzed  either by overthinking or by laziness. - Questlove -

So you want to work with me?

Dear Visitor,

  • Take your ego off the table. I'm a team worker.
  • Making a record is not an accident.
  • If your skills are mediocre you will need an extraordinary amount of luck to be continually successful. No one has that much luck.
  • Discipline is the most important value to focus creative energy. 
  • A hit is not a hit because a few people believe in it but because many fans like it.
  • A good idea is about ten percent and the rest is hard work.
  • If you pretend you can do it, you can do it every day, any time.

Dear Artist,

  • Humans are always having ideas, it doesn't make you special. Real artists are able to capture them.
  • Your vision is based on your absolute and only interpretation. Be open to other peoples interpretations of it.
  • Being observed or critiqued will lead to a greater level of creative freedom and expression.

Dear Singer,

  • Sing every day.
  • Learn your lyrics don't read them. Don’t be a stranger to your own song.
  • Sing for the listeners and don’t loose them for a second.
  • Pay as much attention to the way you end words and lines as you do to how they start.
  • You are central to the success of the project. Ask most singers about their studio experience and they will tell you that their vocals were done in a rush, late at night. This is about as wrong as you can get.

Dear Musician,

  • Shut up if you can't improve the silence.
  • Groove is the air between the notes when you don't play.
  • Rehearse each day with a click. Maybe you will not need it in the studio then.
  • Come into the studio well rested, clear headed, and ready to work. Recording is a physically and mentally demanding process.
  • Don’t invite guests to your sessions. Stay focused on the task at hand.
  • Your favourite sound might not help the song. Trust the producer.
