The role of a music producer is very varied, with many tasks needing to be performed. They do some tasks themselves and manage the completion of other tasks, sometimes outsourcing and sometimes working with an established team.
The function of a music producer can start with the initial ideas and concepts, putting together thoughts for a song or album. This often involves working closely with the artist(s) to decide what tracks to use, in the case of multi-track albums, deciding which songs or musical pieces to use, thinking about improvements, considering the listing order and album arrangement, etc. Lyrics and instruments might be changed around on the advice of a music producer. Songs may not be original recordings; they may be cover tracks, for example. A producer might actually write songs, including lyrics and musical pieces.
A music producer often takes on the role of coach too, advising musicians in the studio to get the best sounds. They ensure that a music recording is polished, clear, and pleasing to the ear. They may use equipment to mix sounds, or they may use an audio engineer. Work doesn’t only take place in a studio though; in the case of live albums, a producer might work at concerts, festivals, and in a variety of locations. In producing music, the professional also needs to ensure that budgets are maintained.
Music producers may work with sound engineers, video producers, session singers and musicians, and the main artists. Networking is, therefore, essential!
The record production industry is highly competitive. It can also be very lucrative with the right deals. But, how does one get their name out there and find gigs? One major way is with a website!
