Brian Reynolds

Owner/operater Foggy Mountain Productions

Music has always been my passion from the first time I held drum sticks at age 7, although I never became a great drummer I did learn many instruments from the sax to the bass, acoustic, and electric guitar, and some keyboard. Once I started recording I went deeper into the whole music thing, from 4 track to multiple adats and the giant mixing boards and tons of gear with tons of expense, now due to the computer age I can do more with much less leaving more time spent creating instead of the learning curve. I have had the pleasure of jamming with a lot of people and recording a lot of bands, it is still just play what I feel and feel what I play if it makes you feel better GREAT! Just have fun







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is a way to express myself, it relieves stress and it's relaxing. It's a way to create a mood, a feeling, or even a place that sometimes you only see in your mind, and to be able to share those feelings or places with others makes it very rewarding.

What is your music dream?

To write and record quality music that may help improve someones day!

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Get rid of hatred of any kind!

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Bridge over troubled water.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Rush, Boston, Styx, Heart, April wine, Led Zeplin, Kansas, Aerosmith, Van Halen, and on and on!

What inspires you to make music?

Owning my own facility makes it easy to get inspired by life's everyday things without the stress and cost of rushing in a big studio.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

We are all just travelers through life, so make every moment count!

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I haven't played live in a very long time but as nervous as I use to get it was also the most fun I ever had in music!

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Today music can be streamed all day long for free, the catch 22 for the musician today is that to get noticed, you must play the game of making $ 0, with the hope that someone, somewhere would be willing to pay for what we do, and if you don't post it for free, who will ever hear it?

What do you think of Drooble?

Drooble is a unique site in the fact that you can interact with like-minded people to collaborate with, and a place to post your creative ideas and recordings without paying hard-earned $ for listens. The great part is that the site is what you make it.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

The lack of a good outlet to get heard!

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

I do, as often as I can, I check out my local music scene.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Learn your craft, timing, tuning, and flow. The sound quality helps as well, there are many sites to help with sound, and in many cases, education is free to get.
