You want to know who you're working with, you want to be careful about what kind of person contributes to your extremely personal musical vision. That's fair!
My name is Connor, I'm a guitar player turned gear nerd with a minor obsession with all things audio and video production related.
I've been playing guitar for over half my life, starting with Green Day and eventually arriving at metal and jazz. Speaking of which, I'm just about to get my Bachelor of Applied Music, with a focus on jazz and contemporary instrumental studies. It's kind of like a piece of paper that says "Yes, I understand I will spend most of my life doubting myself and struggling to pay rent... but I wouldn't trade it for the world."
I can't give 99% when it comes to music.
It has to be done the best it can be or it's not worth doing. It creates a lot of that self-doubt I mentioned earlier, but that kind of mindset is what forced me to get better - to branch out from just playing guitar, into audio production, video production, music business, graphic design, motion graphics... it's what makes me good at what I do.
It's also the mindset that makes me want to work with you.
I know that I'm not the only one who feels this way about music. I understand how personal it is to release something you've crafted so carefully, and the need to make sure that it's absolutely perfect.
