Hey all, Studio tunes are incredibly important to my working process. They can jolly me out of a bad mood, help me hunker down and focus, motivate me and help me pick up the pace when I am doing production work. I was thrilled when my accountant told me they were tax deductible. This has me wondering what you all like to listen to when you work (one of my motives is to learn of some international favorites from this amazingly diverse community. Here is what has been playing at my studio lately. General work tunes: Damien Rice ‘O’, Kathleen Edwards ‘Failer’, Ryan Adams ‘Heartbreaker’, Whiskeytown ‘Stranger’s Almanac’, Al Petteway & Amy White ‘Racing Hearts’, Etta James ‘Sweetest Peaches’, my buddy Dwain when he drops by with his guitar. Design work: anything by Sarah McLaughlin, Rueben Gonzales ‘Introducing Rueben Gonzales’ Production work: Ottmar Leibert ‘Nouveau Flamenco’ Studio Clean up: U2 ‘Achtung Baby’, Pearl Jam ‘Vs.’
So! What do you like to listen to when you work?
