The Story Behind Confessions of a Small Studio Owner
Hi – when you’re a songwriter, almost always on a tight budget, you have to become very resourceful. You have to write, play, sing, produce, mix, build the website, do the marketing (or not), post on social media…..and keep learning because there is always something new happening that can help you do your job better – and technology does get outdated. I wanted my blog, as it were, to not just be about me as an artist, but about everything I do. I have a small studio – I connect with other small studio owners and we study mixing, and so on. This blog site (which was really a podcast site but I had spent so much time making it pretty I didn’t want to scrap it), is about ALL the things that go int making records (shows my age….)
Am I ever going to stop talking about myself......?
Hi – I’m a small studio owner, mainly to fuel and support my ambitions as a singer, songwriter, guitarist (which are giving way to my desire to do very good mixes). Here’s me in a lovely (not small) studio in upstate New York on a very expensive microphone (which didn’t make a lot of difference to my singing hahaha) putting down a vocal to Cold-Blooded Killer on my latest solo effort. Probably the last time I’m going to be spending lots of cash on a studio – I’m now a DIY guy!
So, this blog might wander into the chapel perilous – the space between our ears – and find out what it is, or isn’t, that is the invisible barrier to accomplishment (success is so overrated).
