There are only few artists and bands capable of producing their own music. A good producer keeps a certain distance and is not involved with the love affair an artist can have with arrangements and sounds. A producer is objective and musically impartial which can really help an artist. For many musicians it’s very helpful to have someone who’s not in the band to coach them and spark new ideas or insights. Good producing means amplifying that which is great, truthful and unique about a group or individual. Taking that which is already there and making it better, rather than turning it into something it is not. The dynamics between and artist and producer can be of great value.
