Sean Garrett Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records

Amerie "Touch" (2005)

Album: Touch
Producer: Lil Jon
Label: Columbia
Sean Garrett:"I was a big fan of Amerie's first album, and I thought she was really cool. We had an opportunity to get in and meet up and that was around the same time I was working at Sony Studios in New York City. That was a lot of fun, too. She was a bit complex at times because she was very opinionated about what she wanted. Sometimes it's hard to give people what they want when they don't really know exactly what it is that they want. She knew what she wanted but I didn't know if it was attainable at that time. That was interesting, but it was fun.

 

There were a lot of big hits going on at the time and big sounds. Sometimes people want what other people have. Everyone is different.

 

"There were a lot of big hits going on at the time and big sounds. Sometimes people want what other people have. Everyone is different. I pretty much try to cater to each artist individually and try to maintain that separation. There are so many things you have to be concerned about. You might do a song, and have an artist say you gave another artists the same thing you gave me, or why didn't you give me that song and it's hard to understand."
