What is a Ghost Producer?
A Ghost Producer (or Ghost Writer) is a producer who produces music credited to another person. Ghost Producers are often used for writing music for popular genres, artists, acts or brands. The Ghost Producer remains anonymous and operates only in the background, not seeking to be in the spotlights. With the music industry becoming more and more demanding for artist and acts, the majority of industry professionals get some form of help with their music. From complete tracks written by a Ghost Producer to help with finishing their tracks, mix-down or final master. In the case of most pop music a complete team is involved to write a track, consisting of multiple producers, songwriters, session instrumentalists, mixing engineers, audio engineers and of course vocalists. Within the Dance Music industry Ghost Production is very common. Used by upcoming artists to give a boost to their career, by DJs that are great at performing live but do not have the knowledge or the time to be in the studio, by established and famous artists to be able to release a steady amount of new music while also touring the world, by brands or record labels to establish their identity and by many more industry professionals. So while Ghost Production is somewhat of an industry secret, it’s very common practice. Visit the Wikipedia on Ghost Writing for more information.
