Roberta Donnay - Producer
In addition to being a world-class singer and recording artist, Roberta also produces records for other artists, applying her musical expertise and knowledge of the recording process to help artists realize their musical visions. Attention to detail and the ability to elicit an artist's best performance in the recording studio are keys to her success as a producer. Below are examples of Roberta's diverse production work.
Deborah Crooks - 5 Acres (ACOUSTIC)
"An accomplished artist, Roberta expects, and brings out, a high standard of work from the artists she produces herself. Due in large part to her production work on "5 Acres," my music life has moved light years ahead of where I was when I first met her. Working with her improved my ear, my singing, my writing, and I came away with a finished EP that far exceeded my expectations. The CD has also earned me gigs and one of the songs she produced, "Dream Me," was picked up for RockerGrl Magazine's 2004 Discoveries CD. Above and beyond, Roberta has linked her musical expertise to her heart. I cannot recommend her highly enough as a producer, an artist and all around great person with whom to work." ~ Deborah Crooks, "5 Acres" Produced by Roberta Donnay, 2003
ZaZa - Primal Whispers (JAZZ/POP)
"I have fond memories of the time I spent working on my debut album with Roberta Donnay. Whether co-writing at her cozy place in Mill Valley or producing in the many studios around the Bay Area she was always attentive, caring and very professional. I look forward to more opportunities to make timeless music with her." ~ ZaZa
