Making a record is an intricate process.

Many pieces need to come together to make it successful, and to lessen the stress of one part of it, I wrote this article last year for, which is a great site for musician advice run by Cameron Mizell and Dave Hahn.

I cover the key parts of planning – (1) Knowing What You Want and (2) Hiring the Right People – as well as nuts and bolts about the session itself. If you’re getting ready to record any freelance musicians, you should read the article.
