Cris Cohen: In addition to the producing you've done for your own band, you've been producing other artists. How has producing other artists influenced how you create sounds or songs for The Wind and The Wave?
Dwight Baker of The Wind and The Wave: I don't know how much you know about my discography, but there's a guy that I've made his last eight records with named Bob Schneider. Kind of a legend from around here (Texas). He's the type of guy who will sell out Bowery Ballroom up in New York in an hour when he puts tickets on sale.
When I first started producing, he was one of the first real records that I did. He's so fly by the seat of your pants, and I'm so organized that, for my Type-A brain, it was a very difficult record for me to make. I never knew if I was even getting anything usable. It's just so scattered and everything's just coming out of him, because he's a true, genuine artist. But that process kind of informed the rest of my record making, in that it's okay if it's rough around the edges. It's okay if you're not sure if you have it on day one. It's cool to let people just try their stuff on it and see what you have the next day or the next.
