Track Cult set up my home studio, and is returning to go through the technology with me that supports the recording.

Jon is really awesome. I was really amazed to see his talent in recording and giving tips when recording the vocals. He has so much patience when recording. It was my first time recording vocals and I'm definitely going back to the studio from now on. Thank you Jon for making my song sound awesome.

Catharine has a beautiful and very comfortable studio. This was my first time recording and she made the process very easy and relaxing for me. She's very patient and willing to work to get the best possible sound out of a performer. I will definitely use Planetwood Productions when I am ready to record another song.

This was an amazing experience! I was impressed by the space, the lighting, the atmosphere, and energy. I felt a little nervous being my first time recording at a studio, but Evan took care of me by keeping my hydrated, comfortable, and able to get the material I wanted. Super patient, definitely recommend, I will be returning soon. Thank you!

Catharine was incredibly professional and accommodating for my VO recording for a BBC documentary. We had the team in London on face time as we worked and we were all able to work effectively and smoothly thanks to Catharine. Her studio is very well equipped, clean and comfortable and she is very accomplished technically. We will be back again!

Had a great time recording with Evan at the Spacemint. I was really impressed with his professional-quality studio and gear. He had everything ready to go when I got there, just had to plug in, set levels, and go! I tracked my stuff WAY faster than I thought and was really impressed with how things turned out. I’ll definitely be back.
