I'm in Austin with Waylon. It's a forced vacation. He's at camp. I'm not at Bonaroo. Isn't that where I should be? Dancing in the sun? Pawning my wares? Pushing my brand? Telling all who will listen and possibly hire me that I'm one of the best mixers out there? I'm a great producer too but no one calls for that anymore. People send me recordings to mix knowing I'll put all of my production skills to work in the mix, adding more than just a blend and a balance. I'm waiting for the producer/artist who is in fact honest enough to go ahead and credit me for this work that is more than just a mix. It hasn't happened yet. Not in decades. I'm not jaded. It is how it works and always has. That was a rant. But this is my blog so I can rant if I want. You don't have to read it. You don't have to agree. A large part of the problem is I manage myself and I'm a BAD MANAGER. Self promotion makes me tired. I come from an era where talking about a session I'm involved in was forbidden and sharing photos would have me fired. Those days are gone, I know, but the sanctity of the process still has a hold on me. Self promotion is however necessary so I'm doing it. Starting today. Through this blog. Let's move on to another product that I very much enjoy.
The Lorina line of premium French soda. I'm a LaCroix girl through and through but if I want something sweet I go for this brand.
