It seems like everyone and their husband are music producers these days. Since there’s no accrediting bodies for music producers, mix engineers, or recordings studios (which means certificates of training are not required), unfortunately for all of us, it’s perfectly okay to go around claiming you are one even when you lack the expertise and experience. Unlike other professional fields (e.g. lawyers or doctors) that need to be accredited and certified, working in the music industry requires nothing of that sort. The challenge is figuring out where to invest your money.
Picking a music producer for your music album\EP\single would define your sound forever.
Yes… This is as important as a lot of other decisions you make in your life (assuming you are a proffesional musician or want to be one) You should definitely take the time, and not rush into things.
