Sadly Jessie J is not likely to be your producer at BB Studio and is not completely right about what she sings.
As much as though BB Studio would love to work for FREE we also have bills to pay! Sorry about that.

As a rule of thumb it is widely accepted that the more time you spend on a project the better it will be. From choosing the right mic and its position, to the number of takes required for a performance to be at its best. If you are working to a tight budget that is absolutely fine, but compromises will have to be made somewhere along the line. As a studio it's in our best interests to always give as much energy as we can to any project and this may happen on a different day after the recordings have been made. So if you can allow a good amount of time this will work in your interest long term. If you want it tomorrow then we're going to have be decisive & live with it.
Over the years I have taken on clients who have not been happy with the end production made at studios elsewhere. Generally I have found it is not the other studio at fault, but the amount of time the client was willing to pay for, that led to their dissatisfaction. So please consider how long it takes to do things - it's the end result that matters.
Original music is obviously what the music world is all about. We love original music because there are no boundaries, no rules & no constraints. With covers there can be. Song writing is fun, stressful, exciting, frustrating, boring, infectious, tedious, rewarding and many more emotive phrases. Most of all it's unique - every song is new.
How long does it take to write a song?
5 minutes to 6 months plus - it's all about inspiration. But if you have a song in your head, a melody, idea or theme then we will dig it out & get it working for you. Rates for songs start at £200/day if we are starting from scratch & writing/creating/composing the tune with you. Start with the end in mind! Please call to discuss.
