As much talent and wisdom Billy Lawson has in writing and playing music, he has also made a name for himself in the world of music production. Billy loves the whole process, starting from the initial idea, and ending with the release of the final cut. While he has had his own songs recorded and produced by others, he has also done the same for artists near and far.
“I didn’t realize I was producing, but when you have an artist copy and record your songs, that’s what being a producer is.”
As music evolves with the times, production must also evolve. Billy has had his share of trial and error, and his lessons learned along the way have helped him find the perfect sound to match the songs of today.
“The mix has to evolve with the song now, and get more interesting, paying more attention to the music and not just the lyrics alone is where it’s at in today’s business. ”
One of Billy’s most recently produced projects is one worth the listen. “My Friend Fred” written by Billy and Ed Hill was produced in Wishbone Studios and recorded by Sammy Kershaw. The cut is on rotation at several radio stations across the US, in addition to plenty of country playlists on Spotify and Apple Music.
Billy’s trained ear for music and talented writing style draw numerous artists to his studio. He perfects his craft daily and constantly expresses his gratitude about getting to do what he loves every day. Being a producer is just another tool in the Swiss army knife that is Billy Lawson.
