We had a singer-songwriter who wanted to add a pop adult contemporary edge to her song. She initially sent in a vocal and piano demo of the song. Being hired on as the producer, Jim helped arrange the music, hired musicians that he thought would give the appropriate sound, engineered and recorded the project with specific attention to details (like pre-amps, amps, instruments, etc.) and had creative freedom in every note that went on the recording. This included vocal performances, harmonies, and effects. On this particular song Jim went though eight different bass lines before he found the right line to complement the groove of the song.
The Before sample is what the artist dropped off to me. The After sample is the final production on the album, and is what I heard coming from the demo.
