Producing the person

Hey Jacquire, thanks so much for your time.

I was wondering if you could provide any insight into how you approach the working relationship with an artist you are producing. For instance, how do you go about presenting ideas to them, whether it be about changes to their song, orchestration or adding parts? How do you start your relationship off on the right foot?

I first try to understand what they are after and what if any vision they can share with me that they have.. I ask them about the ideas behind the songs, What is the inspiration, feeling they have for things... it's not that I'm going to do exactly what they are describing but just getting a sense of their ideas... I express my desire to partner with them and lead them through the process... it's about trust and establishing communication and that is different for each person, it really is a personal interaction and that is very broad.. I always try to be veery respectful and open in conversation and only assert an opinion of controversy in the most constructive way I can... but also you have to be forthright and truthful... It's just about communication... You have to be connected to the process fully...

I hope something I said helps...
