DON’T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE THAT 99% OF MUSIC PRODUCERS MAKE
I see it over and over again — when a producer can’t figure out a solution for writing memorable music, melodies & chord progressions, they go back to doing exactly what they shouldn't do: tweaking EQs & compressor knobs, finicking with some reverb, or worse, not producing at all and blaming the music industry for being jaded, corrupt and backward.
Ugh. That’s the exact opposite of what you should be doing.
Don’t get me wrong, mixdowns are important, but people don't connect with EQ and compression. They connect with stories. They connect with vulnerability. They connect with honesty.
