Making a song, for any songwriter or producer, is part mysterious and part science. There are times when inspiration hits and we primarily just go with our gut. But equally important, there is a common process that most people do not clearly think about. I often get asked by my new clients how long it takes to make one song. Many people underestimate what it takes to go through this process, so in an effort to help my audience understand my process, I wanted to outline what it takes to take a song from scratch to fully mastered.
