The 'right' way?
Hi Jacquire,

I always enjoy the records you make. Thanks for taking the time!

Given that we are often faced with the decision of which compromise to make, I'm wondering which of your projects best represents your vision of doing it the least-compromised, 'right' way.

Did that project turn out to be the most creatively successful?

Was it the most successful in the industry sense?

When you do have to make compromises, what do you try to prioritize?

Thanks again!

I've had a few projects that creatively went great also be successful in industry terms, great records get overlooked more than they should but that's the nature of it... I only ever really try to make the creative part great and just focus on that, the rest has to take care of itself and I just need to be sure of it's quality to allow it to happen. There are 'compromises' every step of the way but I don't look at it like that, I look at it as the efforts becoming what they can be and work to have every step feel inspired and sit well with myself and the artist
