Check Out Jesse Shirts’ Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jesse Shirts.

Hi Jesse, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I have always loved music from as young as I can remember. I started playing guitar when I was 9. Through high school, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do with my life.

Then the summer before my senior year I discovered music production. I started by making beats in my room every day. Then later that year, I got connected with Speaklife Studio in Spartanburg and did an internship.

Ever since then, I have been producing and mixing music full-time as my career. I use social media to market and sell my skills and music.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Like starting any new career, it hasn’t been a super smooth road.

The main struggles early on were learning my craft and figuring out ways to monetize what I do. I’m still always trying to get better at my craft and also always trying to find new ways to make money with my music.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a music producer and mix engineer. I produce full instrumental tracks for singers, songwriters, rappers, and artists to make songs with. I also mix people’s music.

Simply put, mixing is taking someone’s song and making it sound “radio ready”. I am most proud of the catalog of music I have made with various artists, both locally and globally!

If you had to, what characteristic of yours would you give the most credit to?
I would say the quality that is the most important to my success is simply being professional. Most people in the music industry are not the most professional.

A lot of times it will take a long time for anything to get done, and a lot of people try to cut corners. I like to be as quick and efficient as possible, while still giving the best results that I possibly can.
