The concept of "The Recording Artist" TV show is simple yet brilliant. Each 30-minute episode is based on D'Agnolo's experience of meeting with and recording three different bands. The show is created in the following fashion. Each week, a band is invited into Otto's studio where they have just two hours to record a new original song. But there's a twist! Fans of the show pick which song the band will record and watch the entire process unfold in real-time. As Otto manages, produces, leads, encourages, and challenges the band, he is constructing a new record right before the eyes of the audience.

For music enthusiasts, this show is nothing short of a revelation as it is fascinating to watch the band rise to the challenge of performing an original song live and delivering it within just two hours, all while being constructively critiqued by D'Agnolo.
