Producer \\ vs // Songwriter

As many of you know, I have been working on a little EP, which is developing into quite the musical project, and I love it. It started off with me wanted to create a tiny 3 song acoustic EP for me to use to market myself, and it is now developing into a thematic, artistic album, which I'm super excited about.

There is one thing different though, I've decided to join forces with my friend and talented producer Maurice Carroll of Stinkiface Studios. Maurice and I have worked in the past on original songs, that are off the beaten path, they always come out amazing.
Something happened this past week that has gotten the gears in my head turning, I have always played the role of Singer/Songwriter & Producer for my songs, I even produced a song for Sahffi Lynne's "Exceptions" album called "Heart Strings", so it was different for me to step back and let Maurice do his thing with my song "In This Place" from the Moon album I'm working on.

I already have 6 out of the 7 songs I want for the moon album, I sent Maurice a link to get his opinion on the tunes, and he liked "In this place", what happened next was beyond what I expected. I went over to his studio with my guitar, and with in 7 minutes, he had layed down a Neo-Soul / RnB vibe of drums and keyboard, that it actually lead me to play the song differently. I honestly think if someone else sang the Maurice version, then people wouldn't even KNOW I was involved with it. It kind of blew my mind how quickly it happened. With in an hour we had a song.

This leads me to believe that working with the right producer, can totally enhance your sound. Maurice is great with that, he opens doors that I didn't even know were doors, which allows me to explore the song I'm working on in a different way.
The possibilities are endless.

Moral of the story is, if your a Baltimore artist, I say give Maurice a call and see what happens.
I honestly can't wait to hear the rest of these moon songs through his ears!
By the end of each session, our faces are just hurting from smiling so hard!
This is creativity at its finest.
Awesome Sauce!

Go Create With Love
