Top Record Producer Quotes

Record Producer Quotes By Stevie Jackson

Lazy Line Painter Jane - it was an insane way to make a record! It was just in a church hall, no separate rooms for instruments, and a crappy digital desk, and I think it's fantastic. I think it's one of the best records we ever made. But if you actually said that to a professional recording engineer or producer they'd laugh at you. — Stevie Jackson

Record Producer Quotes By Smokey Robinson

My philosophy on writing a song for myself is that I always, always, always want to write a song. I always want to write a song. I realize that as a record producer or a singer or whatever I might not, if I recorded on myself or someone else, the first time out I might not give it the right treatment, so that the world or many people will accept it and it'll be a public hit, or anything like that. — Smokey Robinson

Record Producer Quotes By Waylon Jennings

You know, in the days when I started, if you had Chet Atkins' name on your record as a producer and it was on RCA, you could work the road. It didn't have to be a big hit record, it just had to have that on it. — Waylon Jennings

Record Producer Quotes By Quincy Jones

I'm just a musician and a record producer. — Quincy Jones

Record Producer Quotes By Bart Millard

Our whole intention was to make a record of songs that we grew up with and change them up a little bit, but we kind of stumbled on writing "Joseph's Lullaby." The irony is when I originally wrote the song, it was called "Mary's Lullaby." I wrote it from Mary's standpoint and it was in a higher key, a real falsetto, and it just wasn't right. One day, the producer's wife said, "Well, it's kind of odd that you're singing from Mary's perspective, being the guy. Why don't you do Joseph? — Bart Millard

I was like a wonder kid at Uptown. The first record I produced sold two million copies - and I'd only produced it because the producer didn't show up. — Sean Combs

Record Producer Quotes By Jewel

My second record I used a producer, which was frustrating in a way, because I think a lot of the punky spirit and provocative nature of the lyrics didn't come across - the music was pretty. — Jewel

Record Producer Quotes By Todd Rundgren

While I used to make my living principally as a record producer, as time went on, I had to depend more and more on my live performances because of the evolution of the record industry, which has de-emphasized what made it possible to make a living. — Todd Rundgren

Record Producer Quotes By Johnny Mathis

When I do an album I try to find a producer that's excited about something that they want me to sing, and I check with the record company to find out what they think they can sell - which is their No. 1 priority. — Johnny Mathis

Record Producer Quotes By Reba McEntire

I was singing a lot of waltzes. And I was with Jerry Kennedy, my producer, and he was playing me some songs, and he said, hey, I want to play you this song that I'm going to get Jackie Ward to record. — Reba McEntire

Record Producer Quotes By John Frankenheimer

But I really am very active in the choice of the line producer with the producer of record and the distributing company, because I've had some terrible, terrible experiences with some line producers, particularly in cable. — John Frankenheimer

Record Producer Quotes By Tony Visconti

Record Producer Quotes By Phil Ramone

The record producer is the music world's equivalent of a film director. — Phil Ramone

My responsibility is to the artist first. There's something that artists intrinsically know about their music and their fanbase that neither the record company nor the producer really knows. — Nile Rodgers

Record Producer Quotes By Chris Blackwell

Record Producer Quotes By Travie McCoy

The first record we put out on Fueled by Ramon, 'The Papercut Chronicles,' we had no idea what the term 'producer' meant. It was just us writing songs, and we are trying to go back to that - singing in a room and vibing off each other. — Travie McCoy

Record Producer Quotes By Suzy Kassem

Just because a man is dressed in a clean white robe does not mean his heart and hands are clean. Any man who neglects his conscience is a dangerous animal. Never judge a man by his image. Images can be bought or produced by any Hollywood producer, marketing team or fleet of stylists. Even kids know how to wear amazing costumes for Halloween. Always judge a man by the coloring of his heart and only his heart. Truth can be found in his record of actions, not intentions. — Suzy Kassem

Record Producer Quotes By Sean Lennon

I did a record with a producer, and the good producers eat up the budget, so I didn't have any budget left to produce this record. I had to produce it myself. — Sean Lennon

Record Producer Quotes By Bono

What turns me on about the digital age, what excited me personally, is that you have closed the gap between dreaming and doing. You see, it used to be that if you wanted to make a record of a song, you needed a studio and a producer. Now, you need a laptop. — Bono

Record Producer Quotes By Geddy Lee

It's a battle between record company, between producer and between mastering engineer. Because the louder you make your record in a digital process, the more dynamics are squished out of it. Nobody knows exactly what happens, but the dynamics in the performance disappear, and everything is at the same volume. — Geddy Lee

Record Producer Quotes By Steve Albini

I do not want and will not take a royalty on any record I record. I think paying a royalty to a producer or engineer is ethically indefensible. The band write the songs. The band play the music. It's the band's fans who buy the records. The band is responsible for whether it's a great record or a horrible record. Royalties belong to the band. I would like to be paid like a plumber. I do the job and you pay me what it's worth. — Steve Albini

Record Producer Quotes By Paul McCartney

My record producer [David Kahne] said the major record labels these days are like dinosaurs sitting around discussing the asteroid. They know it's going to hit. They don't know when, they don't know where it's coming from. But it's sort of hit already. With iTunes, and all of that. — Paul McCartney

Record Producer Quotes By Jerry Harrison

Most bands have a sound that they're already identified with, so for the producer it becomes a process of helping them find their muse in the studio to make a record that will not only satisfy them artistically, but will also do something in the marketplace. — Jerry Harrison

Record Producer Quotes By Pras Michel

People in the record business would say, Well, Pras, you know, you haven't been out in a while, maybe you should get today's hottest producer or rapper to do something. — Pras Michel

Record Producer Quotes By Leon Redbone

I got out of the music industry many years ago. I had a charlatan for a producer who I wanted nothing to do with. He's dead now, so I guess I can't beat that horse any more. It left a very bad taste in my mouth, so I just went on about my business doing what I do and not involving myself with record companies, except for distribution. — Leon Redbone

Record Producer Quotes By Todd Rundgren

People have always said that I could have been a highly successful pop artist, if only that were my intention. It never was.

And I made a record for myself just so I could have an outlet for my musical ideas. — Todd Rundgren

Record Producer Quotes By Benmont Tench

Record Producer Quotes By Todd Rundgren

By the time my first solo record came out, I was making a handsome living as a record producer. I had worked with the Band, Janis Joplin and all of these other artists in the Albert Grossman organization. So as my so-called solo career evolved, I never felt pressure that I had to come back and top when I might've done before. — Todd Rundgren

Record Producer Quotes By Joe Craft

With a proven track record as a reliable, low cost producer able to meet the needs of our customers with a diversity of operations, coal qualities and transportation options, we believe we can continue our record-setting performance in the future, as the Gibson South and White Oak mines reached their full potential. — Joe Craft

Record Producer Quotes By Mose Allison

[The producer told me:] "We can try one more record, and we'll see how that one does." Those records never did anything. My music never got mentioned. My color got mentioned. — Mose Allison

Record Producer Quotes By George Harrison

Although I have guitars all around and I pick themm up occasionally and write a tune and make a record, I don't really see myself as a musician. It may seem a funny thing to say. It's just like, I write lyrics amd I make up songs, but I'm not a great lyricist or songwriter or producer. It's when you put all these things together - that makes me. — George Harrison

Record Producer Quotes By Tony Visconti

Today a record producer is even more involved and is often the production's sole musician, one person playing all the instruments one-by-one. — Tony Visconti

Record Producer Quotes By Rick Rubin

I never made beats to make beats; I only made them when there was a record to make them for. That's one of the things that has changed in hip-hop that's made me like it less. It feels much more like it's a producer-driven medium, where there are all these tracks that are completely interchangeable. — Rick Rubin

Record Producer Quotes By Tori Amos

I produce the records. I don't hand over control to some really expensive producer who then talks to the record company and then tries to bend me to their will - for commercial purposes. — Tori Amos
