Hybrid Studios, Orange County’s premier recording studio and sound stage, recently interviewed client Mike Willson. When asked if being a musician lends any specific advantages to the field of production and engineering, Willson responded:
“Absolutely! It really helps with communicating and understanding what the artists are trying to accomplish musically, and it helps in working with them to get all of their ideas out and recorded the way they want to hear them. Being a musician helps a lot with the business side as well. I know what it's like to fund your own record, and I never want an artist's budget concerns to prevent good music from getting properly recorded and produced. I always want my clients to understand that I'm in three bands; I'm playing local shows, and I’m trying to get our music out there as well. I know what it's like out there, and I want to help bands put out the record they want.”
