Think About Who is Listening
Tuesday, 3 April 2007
Over time it has been well documented that occasionally record labels will direct artists into a style of music not so familiar with the artist’s usual style. Why? In most, if not all of the cases the record company wants to target a specific market, a market that has a larger slice of purchasing power & is more accessible with the product or a marketplace more acceptable to the artist’s image.

Formation of a Song
Thursday, 7 December 2006
As industry insiders, we sometimes forget that when discussing the recording process, the rest of the world really has no idea what we are talking about.
