MPF Podcast 002: From Kesha to McCartney, studio owner and producer JJ Appleton shares stories and wisdom

 JJ Appleton’s music career included working with top 40 sensation Kesha and her songwriter, and his music has also drawn the attention of Sir Paul McCartney. He was in a popular New York based band Grasshopper and as a signed artist released his own solo album in the UK.

In this conversation, I spoke to JJ about his career, and his thoughts and advice in songwriting, working with artists and creative ways for bands and artists to promote themselves and their music. He really brought home some great words of wisdom.

Appleton and I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation, and it really brought it home to me that the key to being a great producer, is being a great person who connects easily with others.
