Music Producers Play a Broad Role

The work of music producers (also called record producers) usually takes place behind the scenes, and is seldom recognized by the public unless the producer is actively guiding the career of an upcoming musician. But, today’s music producers have come to play a broad role in the music production process, with many of them supervising the actual music recording session and even mixing and mastering their own productions.

While the established musician will generally insist on complete artistic control, an unknown artist will be wise to rely on the music producer to oversee the selection and arrangement of music. In fact, a music producer may actually oversee the entire recording process. Some producers will use their skills to “create an image” by suggesting lyrics and melodies, mentoring the artist, choosing a personal stylist for the artist, and selecting the cover art.

In today’s popular music scene, music production companies and music producers are liaisons between the artist and his record label, or an artist and his manager. The producer’s main function is to discover new talent and sign musicians to a production contract. It is up to the producer to grant permission to the production company to press, promote, and sell the artists’ works. In this way, music producer can help grow the professional musician’s career.

With the advent of audio production computer software, musicians and music producers need not be allied with a production company. Teams of engineers and technicians are no longer needed to create professional recordings. Late advances in music software have allowed musicians to work independently, writing, arranging, performing, and recording their own music. The advantage for the artist is to enjoy complete artistic control over his own music, without outside influences. But, just because any musician can record in a home studio on a PC or laptop computer does not mean the role of the music producer is no longer necessary. Aspiring musicians should understand that a music producer has the experience and background to make knowledgeable decisions that could make or break a musical career.
