Local Producers

Detroit Producers and Recording Studios

The record producer and recording studio are the biggest line-item on the gospel artist's budget spreadsheet. Depending on the experience and track record, producer budgets can range from $5,000 to $25,000 per cut, not inclusive of royalty fees. The producer cost typically includes the cost of talent, engineering and studio costs, and union fees (where required). In gospel music, most producers are paid by the recording, not by the track
