WHAT IS A PRODUCER?
Music producers are often defined as the unsung heroes behind the scenes in popular music. In the beginning of the music industry, a producer was a bank representative to assure that the budget was actually allocated properly and the music was going to "hit the spot" so that it would eventually sell to the masses. In the music industry today, the music producer serves much the same role as a director in a film. It is the music producer’s job to make sure that in the end the finished product is as good as it can be. In some cases this may simply involve making it listenable, however in other cases this means making sure the song is a hit, or at least has the potential to be a hit. Their job is essentially to make sure that a song is well-recorded and well-produced. Producers are also the overall coordinator to help orchestrate all of the resources to get the final product!
