>The only connection between his many projects? All that music is stored on his iPhone.

So he's a complete moron who doesn't know how or want to know how to use a professional studio mixer. Who saves their livelihood on their iphone, and turns down learning how to use a studio mixure?

A moron who just wants a comfy chair.

>He picked up his new black-and-white Rickenbacker guitar

How is the brand of his guitar relevant other than name dropping?

>then reached into his Herschel backpack

This is starting to read like an article with no other purpose but to sell embedded ads.

David Pierce was shit when was at The Verge and he's shit now.

*How is the brand of his guitar relevant other than name dropping?*

it does add some imagery to the description.

*then reached into his Herschel backpack*

now that *does* seem a little gratuitious.

He's an extremely musically talented teen from Compton using GarageBand on an iPhone with direct input from his guitars and basses through the headphone jack and an adapter.

Music apps are one of the few areas of professional tools which work well on the iPhone, and Apple's adaptation of GarageBand to the phone is a good one.

GarageBand has been a standout tool among professional music up and comers for years. Justice used it for their first album 10 years ago.

Well of course it's a Herschel knapsack. Only girls use Fjallraven Kanken.

John Bon Jovi, no, not Jon Bon Jovi:
@Gruber the Booger: You're overplaying the reflexive meanness. I don't think "executive producers" actually do anything, but there's no particular reason for a musician to care about the technical crap involved in recording. He's got a setup that works for him, and it's most likely backed up to iCloud, so it's relatively safe even.

@John Bon Jovi, no, not Jon Bon Jovi:
Yep, nailed it. There’s metric craptons of really awful music made by people with really great gear in expensive studios.

It’s all about how well you use what you have. One of the most talented musicians I know (you’d recognize his name, but I’m not here to namedrop) recorded for years on a single modestly priced synth, mixer, and cheap drum machine.
