Default Re: Something to Ponder

Just an example from my own personal experience: I never used to be a big fan of Jason Mraz, but once I heard his 2008 release We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things my mind was changed completely. Why? Because he didn't allow the record to be over-produced! If he did use pitch-correction software, I couldn't tell. At one point on the last song, "A Beautiful Mess", he actually flubbed a note, but he kept the take, which I greatly admire. I'If someone has a good voice and they put genuine emotion into the music, then if they miss a note here or there it's no big deal. The human voice is an unpredictable instrument, and I think that more musicians should accept and embrace that.
