Platinum Song Production
At Cox International, our focus is not just on the technical aspects of recording, but on the importance of the right “Marriage” among the Artist, the Songs and the Producer. From the Beatles and Sir George Martin - to Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson, the music industry’s most successful Hit Singles and Albums have usually been the result of a great working relationship and creative collaboration between the Artist and the Producer.

What Does a Music or Record Producer Do?
1. One vital role is to screen songs for the Artist. Songs may come from the Artist (if he or she writes), the Record Label’s A&R staff, or from Music Publishers, Tip Sheets and Outside Writers. The Producer must select and record songs that he/she believes are the best-crafted and -suited for that Artist, with the highest potential to promote the Artist’s image and commercial success. Producers often sift through more than1,000 songs to find 15 songs that he/she and the Artist will record. Of those 15 songs, only 10 or 13 songs usually make the album’s “final cut.”
2. The Producer interfaces with the Artist or Band or independently arranges the song, deciding appropriate instrumentation, song tempo, and works with the Artist and Recording Engineer to capture the Artist’s strongest vocal performances on tape. Some producers can’t play a note, but have “great ears” for finding hit songs and replicating or purchasing great “demo tracks” from other Producers, Musicians or Writers – for their Artists.
3. The Producer works with the Engineer to make a competitive recording of each of the Artist’s prospective Hit Songs, including giving the Engineer guidance and suggestions in each song’s “final mix.”
4. The Producer balances the Artist's vision with industry standards and the Label’s A&R and Marketing staffs' expectations. With the Artist’s Manager and Label, the RIGHT Producer is invaluable in initiating and developing an Artist’s career. We have worked with record labels such as Atlantic, Motown, RCA, Island, Sony, Warners, Interscope, Universal, MCA, Capitol and others. We also were instrumental in writing songs for such artists as Vanessa Williams, Stacy Lattisaw, Fire on Blonde, Michele Goulet, the Ritchie Family, Klique and others - in the formative stages of their careers. At CI, we’ll write and produce World-Class music for you and give you every advantage of our extensive contacts and successes.
