The Man Behind The Curtain

As a music composer I receive way to much credit for the success of my music Namely my debut album "One Day In A Life" and the second CD called "Journey Around The Sun: A Mayan Odyssey", Both albums charted rather well, and went to number 1 according to ZMR charting of world wide broadcasters. However a great deal of my success is due to one outstanding talented person and friend, music producer and arranger Frank Ralls. I have always said behind every successful band or composer is his producer and if most successful artist would admit it they would say the same thing. Frank has always been able to enhance my music and take it way beyond my expectations and producing perfection. In the beginning I told Frank that I had no desire to play on any of the finished recordings. This was due mainly to logistics and added cost. Frank has his own team of very gifted studio musicians he works with in Florida. My strong suit is creating the material. The way we work together is I would send Frank my compositions, we would work together by going over each song deciding the direction to take it and the overall feel we wanted on the project. The only two things I insisted on was to replace as much synthesizer used on my demos with live instrumentation as possible the second was all the music had to be Radio Quality. Frank would take it from there. The bottom line is without Franks talent and expertise my music would still be just a pipe dream. Thanks a lot my friend (what a team we make) Bill Wren
