5 x Lessons from recording, mixing and mastering a complete album

My album “Self(ish) Aware” is now officially released!

Apple Music/iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/album/self-ish-aware/1420640171
Spotify – https://open.spotify.com/album/1BHD0J8ljAdVy8xIwgzyqp
Google Play – https://play.google.com/music/m/B7eeuv6k3ugjvn4tzasp2dzmgsm?t=Selfish_Aware_-_Pete_Johns

In this video, I reflect upon the process and provide the five biggest lessons I learned during the recording, mixing and mastering process.

My five tips in no particular order are:
1. Time management
2. Gear Acquisition syndrome
3. Lower is better
4. Keep it simple
5. Sing/play/create like nobody is watching

Welcome to my “Releasing an Album” video series, where I will be taking the songs I have recorded, many documented right here on the channel, and completing a final mix and master process before releasing my new album on August 1st, 2018.

Along the way, I will be showing you some of the processes I go through to review the tracks, adjust the mixes where necessary, complete the mastering process, design album artwork, release the album and finally promote and share the end product.
