Musician's Survival Guide to a Killer Record

Musician's Survival Guide to a Killer

You're a musician. Like most musicians these days, you write songs. And when you write a song that you're all excited about, you record it. And if you're like most musician's, you probably love the song. Which brings up a very important question. Are you happy with your productions? You can be. It takes many years to excel at recording, and if your goal is to become an engineer then that's what's required. But if you're a musician who just wants to garner a reaction for you song, then you don't have time for that. You need to make a Killer Record right now. But how? First, stop thinking like a recordist. Who am I? I'm Mixerman, a multi-platinum and gold award winning producer, mixer, and recordist. I'm also a published author, and I have a number of very popular books written on the recording arts. I was in precisely your position at the early stages of my career. I was a musician, frustrated that I could write a good song, only to feel the record itself fell short of it's potential. Over the course of my decades recording, I noticed that the performance and arrangement had a far greater impact on the sound than anything I did on the engineering side. The stated goal of this book is to convert recording decisions into musical ones, and technical decisions into practical one...

The Gospel According to Luke

The Gospel According to

The outrageous and often hilarious autobiography of legendary session musician and lead guitarist and singer of Toto.No one explodes one of the longest-held misconceptions of music history better than Steve Lukather and his band Toto. The dominant sound of the late ‘70s and ‘80s was not punk, but a slick, polished amalgam of rock and R&B first staked out on Boz Scaggs’ Silk Degrees. That album was shaped in large part by the founding members of Toto, who were emerging as the most in-demand elite session crew in LA, and further developed on the band’s self-titled multi-platinum debut. A string of massive hits followed for Toto while Lukather and bandmates David Paich, Jeff Porcaro, and Steve Porcaro also served as creative linchpins on some of the most successful and influential records of the era, including Michael Jackson’s Thriller.In this incisive memoir, Lukather tells the complete Toto story. He also lifts the lid on what went on behind the closed studio doors, shedding light on the unique creative processes of some of the most legendary names in music: from Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, and Elton John to Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Don Henley, Roger Waters, and Aretha Franklin.
