MIX MAGAZINE INTERVIEW QUESTION:
What does a studio need to have--equipment, ambience, personnel--to get the most out of your talent?
WILL LEE ANSWER:
It has to have the ears of the person who's responsible for the project. Knowing what your equipment can do and how to utilize it is more important than having a lot of toys. A guy I've worked with, a great drummer and writer named Terry Silverlight, comes to mind. We've played on Nancy Wilson records together, and I've co-written and sung on lots of tracks with him. I'm amazed at what he does with a little reel-to-reel recorder, a sequencer and boatloads of talent.
