Usually, when you think of a music producer – you usually think of a male, right? It’s usually a dude, probably wearing a beanie or a cap (they always seem to be wearing hats, for some reason), with his hand clasped around his jaw area, thinking pensively. Think this analogy is bullshit? Well, dear reader, I wrote this out with purely just the words ‘music producer’ in mind, and then googled the same phrase, and then clicked Images. Keep my description in mind.
Given how cold it is outside, and I donâ€™t know about you, but for me itâ€™s getting a hell of a lot harder to try and force myself out of bed in the morning. Add into the mix that thereâ€™s black ice on the streets and roads, the commute into Uni just doesnâ€™t sound all that appealing. This could be just ordinary avoidance of the cold, or it could be something more than that.
With the release of her new album New Love, Allison Weiss has shown a natural progression in her music, both in the sound and in the already high quality of songwriting and production. We speak to her about that new direction and the making of the album, life on the road, and the situation that nearly put her last UK tour in jeopardy. O: You’re engaged now, congratulations!
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
