ARTIST DEVELOPMENT STUDIO recommends that all songwriters go through a three step process before deciding on the best approach to have a songs recorded.


Step 1 –  “BUDGET" the number one challenge for most songwriters is having the funds to record properly.  Songwriters should review their overall finances while taking into account the number of songs they need to record, the production level required, and the goal of the final product.


Step 2 –  “LEVEL OF SONG PRODUCTION” Ask a simple question... “How much production does my song really need to become a professional sounding song? Not all tracks will require full production.  ARTIST DEVELOPMENT STUDIO will review the available options and assist in creating a clear plan. Having a song that always includes full production does not guarantee increased opportunity.
