The MD is the foundation to any musical endeavor, especially one that involves live performance. It is the Music Director's job to guide the band and to ensure that all the musical elements are in place. With that said, the music is usually the easy part. A good MD must also be familiar with all the other aspects of production, from the technical to the financial. At ExtraMile, you not only get great music direction, you get expert production advice, supervision and follow-through from one source you can trust.
A good band is the key to any music project. The musicians must not only be good players, but they must also be the right fit for your particular project. At ExtraMile, we have relationships with hundreds of the greatest musicians throughout the country. We will find you a band with the right players, the right look, and the right attitude.
An important element to building a fan base and selling records is touring. All the musicians in our database are experienced touring musicians who are well versed in the rules of the road. But finding the right musicians for a tour is just the first step in the process. If touring is in your future plans, we will coordinate all the elements. From transportation to audio and lighting, we have access to the biggest and best production and touring personnel in the world. Leave the hassle and all the details to the pros at ExtraMile Productions. You’ll be glad you did.
Budget Development & Analysis
The first question when beginning any project, sometimes even before how does it sound or how does it look, is "HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?" This is a business, and understanding how to create a budget is extremely important. Being able to analyze and ultimately allocate funds is perhaps the most important element to a successful musical endeavor. At ExtraMile, we will present you with a detailed estimate so you can fully understand where funds are being allocated and how far we can go within your parameters. But most importantly, you can rest assured that we’ll get the most out of every dollar you spend, because we spend your money like it’s ours. You can be confident that, no matter what your budget, you’ll get the most out of it working with ExtraMile Productions.
A good producer is an individual whose job it is to oversee and manage the recording of the artist's music. A producer has many roles that may include, but are not limited to, gathering ideas for the project, selecting songs and/or musicians, coaching the artist and musicians in the studio, controlling the recording sessions, and supervising the entire process through mixing and mastering. If your goal is to make a record, ExtraMile will put you together with the right producer, the right engineer and the right studio to deliver the best product possible.
We all know just how important a great song can be. While it’s not the only thing, it often can be the element that makes an artist successful. Songwriting is a very personal thing that many artists are guarded about. If you need assistance in writing that next big hit you've always dreamed about, or if you need help finding that perfect bridge or lyrical theme, we are connected with some of the biggest and best writers in the world. We won't stop until you are 100% satisfied with your song.
