Now, let’s talk about how to find a music producer who will get the most out of your music.

Ask other musicians

The fastest way we know of finding a local music producer is to ask around the local music scene.  Talk to local performers. Ask for recommendations. Go into depth on this, ask specific questions i.e. what do you like about a particular producer, or are they easy to communicate with, how they mix music, or do they deliver the goods in a timely manner?

The local music scene is really a tight-knit group.  The music artists in that scene are usually pulling for each other, and more often than not they will give advice when it is asked for.  They have been there, done that, and you can generally trust in their advice if you ask for it.

Ask at recording studios

Another good source of information/recommendations are at your local recording studios. That is where the recording is done in the local scene. There will be people there who know people, who know people, and you will have no trouble obtaining recommendations about music producers, or a songwriter, or musicians who play specific instruments for sessions, or a touring musician.

We strongly advise you to spend as much time as you need with this approach. Talk to as many people as possible. This is an important decision, choosing a music producer, and it should not be rushed. If it takes you months of asking around, so be it.

Listen to recordings which have the sound you want

Without a doubt you have favorite recordings you listen to. What is there about those recordings that you like? Would you like that sound replicated on your recording?  Who did the producing on those recordings?  If you like it that much, you’ll like it enough to call around and find the music producer who produced it.  This may take a little more time, but it will be time well-invested if you marry up to the music producer who can perform magic with your material.

The bottom line of all this advice is this: there is no hurry!  Finding the right music producer for your music is a process which should take time. It should require a lot of effort.  Your music is important to you. It is a statement about who you are.  It is your message to a large, impersonal world.  Keep searching until you find the individual who can make your message come alive.
