In this episode of Input|Output, Geoff and Eli interview legendary “Soul Music Producer” Bob Power. In the 80s, 90s, and 00s, Power worked with some of the most influential artists of the Hip Hop and R&B world, including A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, India Arie and Meshell Ndegeocello.
The hosts ask Power about his journey from session player to producer, rummage through his brain for tips and techniques and grill him about some of his favorite gear. They also take a detour to discuss the business of music, and how ask Power how he’s continued to adapt to a changing landscape.
