Jay Carteré | Jay Cartere | how to make a song at home right now

After enjoying a particularly chilled weekend, Monday reared its ugly little head and it was time to get back to work.

I spent the day editing and finishing up my book How To Make A Song AtJay Carteré | Jay Cartere | how to make a song at home right now Home. The book is basically going to guide you through the various steps you need to take in order to create a sick song for cheap in the comfort of your own home. For those of you who are interested, the book will cover the following sections:

  • Creating a home studio
  • Production
  • Songwriting
  • Recording
  • Mixing
  • Mastering

My aim is to make creating quality music accessible to beginners who have little idea of what they’re doing and offer helpful advice via my own experience to those who are more adept. If you want to grab that as soon as it comes out holla at me on Twitter (@JayCartere) or send a message through my contact page so I can note your name down.

Jay Carteré | Jay Cartere | how to make a song at home right nowI also released a new song called Right Now. That’s off my upcoming dance EP The Love Story (it’d be sick if you pre-ordered that). The song is about trying to prevent a break up and reconcile with a lover by focusing on the ‘right now’ and not spoiling the moment by bringing up loads of old bullshit. Let me know if you like it or nah on Twitter.

About the author 

Jay Cartere

Who is Jay Cartere?

It's a long story, but I'm going to make it short because I respek your time...

I'm a producer, rapper, singer and creative entrepreneur from London.

My musical journey started in 2007 when I decide to spit some lyrics to a grime beat... through a laptop.

That's right, no mic or anything - I was spitting DIRECTLY into the laptop cuz.

It's safe to say things have changed since then...

But, that's not all:

The journey has never been easy...I had to put my entrepreneurial mind to work and figure this stuff out.

I taught myself how to record and engineer my music.

I also had to learn how to film and edit music videos.

How to market, promote, sell and build a business.

Poverty gave me the pressure I needed to develop these skills...

Now I'm gonna share those skills with you...
