|Question: How does one evaluate a good producer and what variables should a singer look|
for in a producer and weed out fakes and so called wanna be producers? How does
one know if a producer is legit or not?

I hear this a lot. Many times it is all about the money. Some are fake. I knew many of them in LA. I did not think in those days that I would be one, but with 20 years in the entertainment field, it was bound to happen.
Are you looking for a big time producer? Today, indies are having the time of their lives with YouTube and the other promotional sites. The big producers single out just a few talents they push and so many great talents go un-noticed. You have to go with your gut feelings on many things.
Have you ever walked into a room and wish you were somewhere else? Or went to shake someone's hand and had a funny feeling about them. That is your gut telling you the truth.
What is a wanna be producer? We have people out there who believe in talent and want to promote people but are not the big time producers you would hope for. Don't judge a book by its cover.
I would be more leary of the fake producers. These are leaches that claim they are somebody and will do great things at a cost. If they want to charge you for something, you need to know what it is and why.
Legit or not? What is the track record for the Producer. Talk to others, investigate. If I go to a doctor, I check them out, so why not check out a Producer? It is your right to do so.
