RSR424 – Joe Gilder – How To Write Songs and Record Vocals In Your Home Studio

Never start anything from scratch! Joe talked about writing songs, using a Presonus Studio Live mixer in a home studio, breaking through writers' block with lyrics, comping vs punching vocals, acoustic room treatment, and promoting your own music.

My guest today is Joe Gilder a musician and entrepreneur from Franklin, TN. As a musician, he's released a number of albums and EPs of his own music. As an entrepreneur, he founded Home Studio Corner in 2009, where he creates free content and paid courses to help musicians learn how to produce their own music at home. These days, Joe creates content for Home Studio Corner, The Recording Revolution, and PreSonus and Fender.

Joe has been a guest on the show way back on episode RSR003 and RSR108! So please check that out to hear his background story. Today we are going to talk about making killer records like his band Staredown, and see what we can learn about writing, creating, mixing and mastering your next record ever.
