This week, Starling interviews six-time Grammy-nominated producer Damian Taylor, to find out what it takes to make it as a producer in the music industry.
Damian is in incredible demand as a producer, having worked with artists such as Bjork and the Prodigy. What are his tips for taking the first steps as a professional, getting up the ladder, and scouting for big breaks? What is a producers actual job, and how do they make magic happen?
Creativity is a bitch: it creeps up on you in the bath, it’s not there when you plan for it and the path to success is as clear as trying to find your tent in a festival site. With no torch. Pop singer Starling has created a podcast interviewing top industry creatives including Bjork producer Damian Taylor, Former Head of Specialist Factual at C4 David Glover (he created Gogglebox), and many more.
The aim? To help people aspiring to make it in the creative industries by learning from the experts: What makes them tick, how they got to the top of one of the world's toughest industries, their mistakes, triumphs, and the moments that made them who they are.
