"This is one of the best guides to making great recordings out there, but in fact, it's not really about recording. Knowledge like this can help many of us "grow up" faster, and gain the wisdom and tools necessary to deal successfully with artists as we make records." - Larry Crane (Tape Op Magazine)
"What are you pretending not to know?". It's filled with clues and reminders of how to stay on track with your creativity. Wonderfully refreshing to read the real the world examples of how others make it work." - Alan Douches (Mastering for LCD Soundsystem, Sufjan Stevens, Brand New, Mastodon)
"A unique look into not just the how, but the why of an artists' process. A must read for musicians, songwriters, or really anyone in a creative field" - Steve Evetts (Producer, Engineer & Mixer for The Cure, At The Drive In, Saves The Day, The Dillinger Escape Plan)

I am in my thirties and have been trying to self-produce music that I'm happy with for my entire adult life. I've also read a million books like "The War of Art" that advise you to just battle your way through creative problems, leading me to believe that there is something inherently wrong with me that's preventing me from writing and finishing good music. This book explains very clearly and in great detail every mistake I've made, and why they're mistakes in the first place.
This book hasn't solved my problems for me, of course, but it has given me a clear starting point and a concrete strategy, not just for creativity in general but for the specific task of making emotionally resonant music that I can be proud of.
Highly recommended, and a huge thanks to Jesse for providing this resource!
I wish I could highlight all the parts of the book. So many great insights! Jesse narrates the book with consistency and with a goal in mind. Really well written and narrated in the audiobook, by Jesse itself. Definitely a book to check many times and in many moments. Great start for those in doubts and laking of direction on what to do in music. Is a music genre free, so can be applied to everyone.
I also add that this book is a great book about creativity in general, not only for musicians or music producers. Go get your copy. You won't regret.
