    EP 21 | Mastering Your Music & Finding the Right Producer with Emily Satterlee

    EP 21 | Mastering Your Music & Finding the Right Producer with Emily Satterlee

    Are you struggling to find the right producers to collaborate with? Hint: it is not as simple as checking out the artists they've worked with or the genres produced for. Emily made an album with a male music producer who discovered her from her live performances. The arrangement ended when Emily refused to date him or give him majority songwriting credits to her songs she wrote in their entirety from chord progressions, lyrics, to melodies. The producer had a lawyer. The lawyer sent threats to Emily, claiming her refusal to cooperate had caused him to lose money from the potential of money he could have made. He threatened to sue Emily for astronomical amounts of money. He sent demands that the songs be removed from the internet and to cease any reproduction. Emily’s inexperience in the music industry led her to cave. She felt devastated, powerless, and confused.
