Les Callard is a long time client of mine, whom I’ve had the pleasure of producing 5 songs with. Hailing from an eclectic background of musical tastes and abilities, Callard has continually sent me great demos which we then turn into fully realized productions with our talented team of musicians and engineers.
Taking Your Songs From Demo to Full Band Production
Les is really great about sending over really promising demos and keeping an open mind through my initial suggestions. I like to take a listen down to the song with the lyrics in front of me so I can really get a feel for melody and phrasing and then come back to him with production ideas. I often help out with his song forms by trimming sections and giving the song an overall streamlined feeling to get his point across best.
Les describes StudioPros’ production process, “I was immediately hooked on the idea of using StudioPros to turn my songs into professional high quality demo tracks, to create a level of professionalism that I could never achieve with my own equipment, and so my songwriting process developed further. I would use my own equipment, sounds, and voice to produce scratch tracks, which I would then pass to the team at StudioPros to add their magic. The team helped me with structure, with identifying weak parts of the song before I even started, with choosing instrumentation, correcting tempo, and often then creating songs which wildly exceeded my own vision for what I had written.” (more…)
