It's like spicy food - sometimes you have to tone it down so more people can enjoy it.
Unfortunately, a lot of executives aren't like producers, and can't hear the diamond in the rough.
I think that in order for music to be heard in a lot of different situations you have to always consider that.
I'm continuing to produce and will start a new record soon, as well.
You can find a diamond in the rough a lot of times.
But a lot of the old fans are listening to a lot of the younger music. So I gotta keep moving forward, and they'll move forward too.
I would say that I've been lucky. Being blessed and not really ever giving up.
The reality is, some people don't want you to change or go anywhere different.
I still write the same way and have the same perspective.
It might be a huge hit, it might not; but you learn something doing it.
The Internet is a whole new world opening up.
It's about finding great artists and being part of their careers.
Commercial music, for the most part, is popular music and you always have to keep that in mind.
I could easily not be the person that people know.
I don't go to that many Broadway shows, so I can't really say anything.
I don't necessarily want people to know all my intimate feelings about Tracey.
I enjoy music that is commercial.
I usually prepare a track and then I work with the artist when it's time to do the vocals.
The most exciting thing for all of us is movies and movie stars.
The whole process of this record was an education for me as a musician.
