EP: 059 – Make mistakes to hit gold and the elements of a good producer with Chris Silverio
“Perfection is the only thing worth failing to achieve.” This is episode 5 out of a series of 5 episodes recorded around the CD Baby DIY Musician’s conference that happened in Nashville in late August 2017. During the conference, host Jon Stinson connected with a number of other musicians, songwriters, producers, and music entrepreneurs. On this episode, Jon hangs out with producer and songwriter Chris Silverio. Jon and Chris talk about: • The spirit of DIY • Knowing your environment, system, and monitors, and making good mixes • The idea of the song being most important • Using social media as a tool • The idea of “playing up” to become a better writer • Ego needs to go – you work for the song Chris is a fun and well thought out music maker.
