Quotations and aphorisms by Greg Laswell:
I’ve always loved doing covers. Some artists don’t like covers. Some listeners don’t like covers. But I love them. It gives you a new perspective production-wise. It’s easier for me, if I’m starting a new record, I like to produce a few songs that aren’t mine just so it frees me up not to worry about it so much.
Once you really get into a song, other than just listening to it, it forces you to go ‘oh, they did this. I never would have thought of doing that,’ when you deconstruct it. It’s something you really can’t do sometimes when you’re just listening to a song. You have to really get into it.
