We think Joi Veer’s new single, “So Much Further Than Far Away – Remix”, would fit perfectly in an episode of USA Network’s Burn Notice for the same reason the show fits perfectly into our lives; it stays at just the temperature you need…for as long as you need.

Almost every scene in Burn Notice kicks off with a peppy indie tune that quickly fades down to make room for dialog about spy technology – riveting stuff for nerds like us. And the music always sets the all-important emotional tone: Yes, bombs will explode and people will be kidnapped. But relax – it’s all in good fun.

“So Much Further Than Far Away – Remix” (featuring the skills of LA producer/keyboard/programming wiz named Nifna Mann) possesses that culturally-aware, Tarantino-like stamp of a song that takes itself seriously…so you don’t have to. We hereby nominate “So Much Further Than Far Away – Remix” for inclusion in every future episode of Burn Notice. Don’t ignore us, USA Networks. You taught us spy stuff.

Thanks, Joi, for another outstanding addition to the MusicRevolution.com library.

When I was a young Specialist (E4) in the US Army Band, that organization’s version of hazing new members was to make them perform in the dixieland band. Dixieland music isn’t technically challenging, so that group was filled with guys either close to retirement or wet-behind-the-ears. The “star” musicians were way too cool to play that stuff.

So off we would go in a government van loaded with banjos, tubas and clarinets to perform dixieland music at the local elementary school. And here’s the thing..the kids couldn’t stop dancing. The teachers trying to control them couldn’t stop grinning. There is just something about a sloppy, oom-pah groove played by real people – playing real instruments – who don’t give a rat’s a%& that works.

 MusicRevolution.com customers seem to agree; “ragtime”  and  “dixieland” are among the most searched terms on our  website. So to  you, dear customer, we wisely offer you this fresh collection of  dixieland/ragtime music…

Enjoy!

Sitting in the producer chair as a vocalist pours her/his heart into your track is a bit like holding a nest of baby birds in your hand. You can be too rough and cause bruising. You can care too much and smother. Or you can be indifferent and let in the snakes. These choices may seem abstract, but they matter. As rock producer Howard Benson (Daughtry, 3 Doors Down) once said of producing hits, “90% of it is vocals.”

One trick I’ve learned while producing is what I call the “gravy take”. It’s the idea that once your singer knows they’ve given you a usable take, they’ll relax more and really start giving you gold.

It makes sense. Being behind the mic during a session is about generating, not evaluating. Good singers spend their energy focusing on air control, pitch, effects and emotion. Whether it’s working or not is up to the guys on the other side of the glass – that would be you. 95% of the vocalists I’ve recorded (including me) don’t have the bandwidth to both perform and evaluate. Those are two different sets of muscles.

Therefore your first job as vocal producer is to gently guide your artist to a place where they feel confident they’ve given you at least something of value – something you can use. They need to know they’ve done their job.

After that, tell her/him you’ve got your meat and potatoes and now some gravy would be nice. Give your artist that rare freedom to actually be an artist. Almost always, what comes next will far surpass your vision. Oscar-winning actor Christopher Walken once said there are only two things a director should ever say to an actor: “Do it again.” or “Good. Let’s move on.”

Lead vocalists take bigger personal risks than anyone else in the band. No layman ever said, “I can’t stand that song because of the drum fills.” Or “That concert sucked because the bass player wasn’t feelin’ it.” But singers step into that crossfire every time that recording light goes on.

Treat your vocalists with care. Help them fly. Get that gravy.

There are at least five ways to cook mountain oysters until they’re hot; same goes for our music. We totally cooked the books when creating this “Hot 25″ list of royalty-free tracks from 2015.

Was the track super-awesome, but didn’t necessarily beat other tracks in terms of sales? On the list it went! Did the track make an insanely-above-average sales for reasons we don’t aesthetically understand?…fine. We’ll cringe as Adam Smith’s invisible dead hand scrawls that title on the list.

Every track on this list made money last year. And that’s all we’re gonna say. Enjoy!
