Loryn (aka Lorin Drexler) is an American music producer, singer, guitarist and songwriter. Rooted from the windy city of Chicago and currently residing in Phoenix, Arizona, he has worked coast to coast in cities from New York to California. Experimental in nature, provocative in metaphor and mellifluous in sound, art truly is music and the ritual of his practice. Loryn has collaborated with artists such as Chase Makai from Nahko and Medicine for the People, Chris Brown from Bubbles Brown, 808 Elevate out of Utah, and the Beach Road Band in Hawaii.
What is music production? i.e. drums, bass, piano, synth, songwriting (if needed), overall sound, overall picture. It’s creative input that fills all the gaps to make a recording come alive.
[via Wikipedia] A record producer or track producer or music producer oversees and manages the sound recording and production of a band or performer’s music, which may range from recording one song to recording a lengthy concept album. A producer has many roles during the recording process. The roles of a producer vary. They may gather musical ideas for the project, collaborate with the artists to select cover tunes or original songs by the artist/group, work with artists and help them to improve their songs, lyrics or arrangements.
Below are a few samples from some of Loryn’s latest productions:
HARD LIKE ROCKS
SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW/WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD
