I am known for bringing the best out of and artist and singer. From Tracy Chapman to Joe Jackson, I was early with digital but learned all of the fundamentals of Analog. In a time when pop music is almost exclusively electronic, I specialize in creating emotion in my productions “Fast Car” for example. I love arranging, structure, development.
I specialize in artists with a message and emotion.I love to work with real players as well as electronics and my records sound real. I know how to get the artist out in front to feature their vocals and not bury them in a mix as an"extra added attraction" an afterthought to the track. I am known as a great song man
I have earned over 75 international Gold, and Platinum Albums; specializing in new artist discovery and artist development. I worked with or discovered many star recording artists; including Duran, Duran, Supertramp, Janet Jackson, Cat Stevens, Tracy Chapman, Bryan Adams, Joe Jackson, Peter Frampton, Laura Branigan. I was a Senior Executive RCA Records, A&M Records, Morgan Creek Films/Music. and have a long history of finding, developing and producing new talent. At A&M Records, as Vice-President of A&R, I oversaw iconic artist rosters including; The Police, Bryan Adams, The Human League, STYX, OMD, and many others, signing and developing star-artists. As an independent producer, I worked with Tracy Chapman, Duran, Duran, Tori Amos, Cat Stevens and Supertramp among others.
There’s not a lot of producers around today with my type of experience and background. I can work either in studio or long-distance via skype.
