Hepworth-Sawyers' What is Music Production excerpted on ProSoundWeb "Authors Russ Hepworth-Sawyer and Craig Golding tackle a seemingly nebulous and elusive target for the subject of this 277 page book from Focal Press. I liked that they first define and quantify music production in the first section sections and then go on to describe what kind of people gravitate toward this profession, what being a music producer really means, and how to make a living/business out of it. I found What is Music Production? An excellent read and well worth adding to your library."--Music Connection "This book isn't a 'Bible' for every producer (could there be such a thing?), but as a go-to guide on a variety of topics and an enlightening insight into parts of the industry we don't always know enough about, it's a fascinating read and highly recommended."--Review in Recording Magazine
