Dayna Manning chats about about recording with Sean Ono Lennon, capturing great vocals, using a metronome while tracking... and gives a bunch of great production tips!

Dayna Manning is a songwriter, musician, turned producer when she was just 17 years old, producing Sean Ono Lennon on her track "My Kind" for her debut record "Volume 1" (EMI). From there, her recording opportunites led her to work with the likes of Jim Scott, Rick Rubin, Don Was, Tom Lord Alge and Dave Kalmusky, where she learned as much as she could about recording and production in the studio.

Dayna has produced her own record Folkyo and her folk trio Trent Severn, as well as producing and engineering several national television commercials and branding an entire radio station, all from her home studio, in Ontario, Canada. Dayna firmly believes that production starts with a great song, so as a writer, she finds producing a natural fit.
