Begin by showing me how the song goes. Even if you don't play an instrument, you can sing the melody into a boom box and we can start from there. If you do play an instrument, that's even better.
Give me an idea of the direction you have in mind for this song. What style is it? Do you have a particular artist in mind? If you have an example on CD or cassette, that will help us get there faster.
Decide if you're going to sing it yourself, or if you need to hear samples of professional vocalists who can sing it for you.
From there, I will work with you on ideas for the arrangement and chart it out. Next I'll quickly get a basic beat going and record the primary instrument that moves the song. Then we build the rest from there.
First decide on your purpose for this recording. The time you will take on your tracks and vocal performance will differ tremendously depending on the ears for which this recording is targeted. Record company A&R people are used to listening to master quality recordings, while a public audience at your live performance is not.
As we work out the arrangements I will be conscious of your vocal range and your stylistic center. I will try to frame your vocal so that it sits well in the mix but at the same time is understandable.
I will also work with you in a positive way to bring out the best performance you have to give and encourage you to put your unique individual expression into the music.
Discuss with me your direction, who your audience is, what effect you want your music to have on people so that we approach this project from the same point of view.
Not only will you need music tracks, but I realize you will need help with graphic design, a great web site, and coordinating the manufacture of your new product. My experience can help.
I realize that an album of material is a major monetary investment and I want you to be successful in recouping your expenses and making a profit. Beyond production, I can discuss with you ways to market your product to the audience you have right now, better utilize your contacts, and make your opportunities count.

"I have used two other studios in the past but Reveal Audio is my home. David quickly snaps in on what the songwriter wants which saves a lot of time and time is money. David works fast but not rushed which is another plus. He did a wonderful job for me on my latest CD Universal Love. I have won lots of awards with these songs and the CD itself. The production is first class and is very affordable." -- Eddie Rhoades, Marietta GA
