i'd say sufjan is pretty amazing.

-pete

I went to see Sufjan earlier this year with my 17 year old son....Unbelievable show ! Think Pink Floyd meets The Flaming Lips meet Paul Simon. His latest album is a pretty radical departure from his last couple of albums.  The guy is very creative.

I would also add Jeff Lynne to the list of successful artist and producers...
Best,

I'm wondering if there are any artists who have successfuly produced their own recordings.  The only one I can think of is Trent Reznor.   

Is this impossible, even with all the apropriate tools at ones disposal?

Is it like Tom Hanks trying to make Forest Gump all by himself?

Is this kind of thing a bad direction to go in?

Thanks
