Transition from engineer to producer

Hi John,

I'm wondering if you can talk about the transition from engineer to producer. It looks like a lot of your earlier credits were engineer and then you kind of moved into the producer seat with some mixes here and there. How did you convince labels that you are a great producer in the beginning?

Er...yes thats how it works really.You do good work as an engineer, get a band that takes off or gets interest and acclaim. You take on producers responsibilites whilst still engineering, you get more confident, someone asks you to produce, someone just wants you to engineer or do more good work..and the record companies may ask you again. and so on and you become a producer
