We're very happy with the work that DeNoise Studio did for our wedding. We decided at the very last minute (like two weeks beforehand) that we wanted video of the ceremony, and once we found Albert, he hit the ground running. His promptness and efficiency came through not just during the planning process but after the wedding itself, as the turn-around on producing the video was only a few days! And the video turned out exactly the way we wanted: a very simple and beautiful portrait of a wonderful hour of our lives. Thanks so much, DeNoise!

All the staff that I encountered was great. FromAngela who greets you when you call and offers her expertise during the edit .To Jamie who at every turn offers his patience and creativity during the edit.. Just great. Albert the owner came into the editing. session and introduced himself. A group of very talented and versatile people all around. I would confidently return to DeNoise Studio without hesitation. Thank you all

Prolific Sound Solutions w/ Kyle was the best experience that my brother and I ever had. We will most definitely come back for him to record the rest of our rap tracks. They treat you like family and they are very professional and skilled at the same time. They listened to what we wanted and made it happened! It was also our first time in a studio and within the first few minutes it felt like home. Most definitely the best experience ever. Thank you!

Today was first time at this studio and I had such a great experience! I was very happy that Kyle was very attentive during the session and guided me throughout to make sure everything sounded good. I am very happy with the song and quality of work and professionalism! I will definitely be back! Highly recommend.

Jimmy and I have partnered to manage The Trailer Park Troubadors and he and I never had a problem communicating or cooperating to the fullest. We met many challenges and he was also playing lead guitar and handling business on the road. The guy is a great player who can thrill audiences with his soaring guitar and he is an outstanding producer in the studio. He's my brother in creativity and I can't say how much I value our long relationship.

I have worked with Jimmy on different projects over a period of 10 years. He is a sensitive and talented producer who always has the artist's vision at the core of what he does. He is also one of the best guitarists you will ever come across, which has added a wonderful dimension to the songs we have recorded together. He is meticulous, reliable and very creative.

Jimmy is an amazing producer. He absolutely thinks outside the box, and brings a freshness to a project that is unlike anyone else. Jimmy has an extraordinary sense of melody and edge that really is breathtaking. I love recording with him.

I recently inquired through Thumbtack to record a song for a promotional video my company is putting together. Chris responded immediately and was very prompt in all of our communication throughout the process. He was also flexible with his schedule and was able to meet with my team in short notice. When we arrived to his home studio, he was ready and raring to go with our track and was very patient since none of us our professionally trained singers. He provided us with a finished product in about a day and quickly turned around our suggested edits. He was a pleasure to work with and we hope to work with him again in the future.

I'm a beginner to guitar, having played a little piano and drums before. Been working with Chris for a few weeks now and it has been a blast. He's a talented musician who is connected to the music scene. I wanted a guitar teacher who was connected to the local music scene, and so I've really enjoyed working with Chris and even going to see his band perform. I also love how Chris walks through songs and is able to write out the tabs and chords on the fly, and then on top of that show me multiple ways of playing the same song. Highly recommend.

I've known Chris for about 3 years,first as a friend from the neighborhood who shared a passion for the same type music as myself and now as a mentor to my son teaching him guitar and how to be an all round cool guy. His teaching style is totally laid back and covers all types of music.......best illustrated by catching his group "Hibbity Dibbity"in action at many a local venue! Do yourself a favor and let Chris take the stuffiness out of learning! Iainmackinlay

I was a bit nervous when I first searched in thumbtack since I had never recorded in a real studio. They invited me to take a tour of their facilities and the staff made me feel welcomed and important. I booked my session and they walked me through the whole process with much ease. Beyond making my recordings sound like top hits, they made me feel more comfortable with my voice. Thanks guys!

Where do I begin? Apparently, I wasn't as confident in singing as I thought I had been at first. As I've been having more and more lessons, I got even better and was blowing the socks off of Mark! LOL. Lately, I've truly been growing into a musical artist. I even have written a few Christian songs and plan to write more. Many people are impressed with how well I sing and are fans of mine, even Mark is. Majorly famous music artists make their work of making albums look like a piece of cake, but it's definitely not. I learned that it can be like a rollercoaster ride to be able to get note pitches, enunciations, and how to use your diaphragm in the right way at the same time. It's all worth it once you hear yourself after you've been recorded and get that final mix CD. It's been a great experience seeing and hearing myself improve vocally. I encourage others to try it out. Don't get discouraged, just believe in yourself and know that you'll get there.

My husband I just finished our fourth session with Mark Kenoly. Mark has been amazing!! I had vocal lessons before but not like this. His unique teaching techniques and his encouragement have helped me to grow. What encourages me the most is to see Mark's passion for music and for teaching, it makes me want to be a part of his realm and thrive to be better. I know I can only get better with Mark. I can't wait to see myself in couple of months :)

Our first visit I was impressed. He made me feel so comfortable and went over everything that we would learn. I jumped on the mic and it was magic. I am truly lucky to have found him. I have been putting this off for years and Im glad I can work with Mark and make amazing music.

Working with Bruce is just great. He doesn't put any pressure on you or rush you in anyway. The song only took a little over an hour to record since I came in with my lyrics written and the flow already in my head. He's good at making suggestions you wouldn't of thought to go with in the first place and letting you do what you want with them. All in all if I remember correctly, we spent about 25 minutes mixing/editing and about 45 recording. I would definitely recommend Bruce Leighton to anyone who is thinking about recording in a studio for the first time as he is affordable and easy going.

I have worked with Ben Bernstein on numerous projects. He is reliable, friendly, very funny, professional and skilled at his many talents. I have performed with Ben, utilizing his talents as a bassist, but mostly I have turned to him for his consistent and high quality work in the studio as an engineer. I produce numerous genres of music: folk, rock, hip hop, country, salsa…Ben is willing to do the research and work to make my recordings, mixes and masters sound top-notch.

I've been working with Ben for all most 2 years now. He is a great engineer and musician who knows how to take the studio out of the way and let you record and make music in a very comfortable relaxed environment. He is always able to get the ideas and vision I have out there very clearly and is my go to guy for mixing. He has all the tools of the trade you need to get a great mix and song out there in a professional manner.

Ben was excellent to work with when my software company needed voiceover work for an animated video. It was my first time recording work of this type, and he was patient, friendly, and helpful in getting the type of track we wanted. Ben turned the final files over the same day, perfect for our quick turnaround needs. I would highly recommend working with him and plan to do so whenever the need arises in the future.

Ralph is a remarkably intuitive and efficient one man studio to record with. Being a world class guitarist and teacher doesn't hurt. Also having played in excellent bands for so long gives him range. I recently did a recording with him that was a rush job of sorts with lots of fixes and he was amazing. He can actually tailor whatever recording project to the wants and needs of the artist. In short: He gets it. He works really hard, puts the project first and is more than fair to say the least in what he charges. I give him the highest of recommendations. You won't regret working with him. Ps. He is calm and friendly as well. He puts the client at ease knowing we're in safe hands.

I've done VO work with Steve at his studio for over twenty years. I trust Steve's ears more than my own, and I've always felt that my work was the better for it. His skills, as exceptional as they are, go way beyond the technical aspects of a recording session. I've also come to rely and trust his abilities as a director. I'm also a big fan of his when it comes to his music composition.Steve's instincts are spot on, and I couldn't recommend him more highly.

I work with Paul on a regular basis, hiring him as a bassist for live performances and studio recording. He is very skilled on his instrument, he is always willing to work on songs and is very quick to pick up new material. He brings a lot to projects by way of his knowledge of various rhythm options and is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher in this regard. His work add a lot to the music we perform together. He is very professional about the work he does too. His replies are always super prompt, which is much appreciated when it comes to organizing music related jobs.

Paul Martin Sounder is one of the most chill and yet hardworking musicians I know. He is personable, kind and a totally fierce bassist. I absolutely love playing with him -- he is an incredible, surprising improviser and can also execute challenging, complex compositions with ease and precision. As a teacher he is patient and fun, but won't let you off easy. He combines technique and soul, diligence and heart -- I am lucky to have him as a teacher, collaborator and friend

Jason M.

Paul is my favorite bass player in the universe. The perfect balance of groove, chops and creativity. As a producer, the tracks he's done for me are stellar performances and he makes every project he participates in better with his attention to detail wether the music is ultra-complex or simple folk tune and everything in between. Can't go wrong with Sounder.

When I found Stephen L. Bigger of RockArbor Music, all I brought with me were files containing a guitar track & some pretty rough vocals, but Stephen somehow saw/heard my vision. He "got it" right away. We made a full album of original songs, and he is a master when it comes to mixing! Did I mention how patient and attentive he is? This cannot be underestimated. Many people will phone it in. They will smile and push the fader up and down, but they will not be fully engaged. I don't think Stephen is capable of this. He really cared about the project. He also has a complex grasp of the voice, what it's capable of, what the vocalist needs to work on to "get it there"... He helped me with stuff I had been doing for years, bad habits I wasn't even aware of. Having a "built-in" vocal coach is a plus! In addition, he was so present in every moment, wanting to "make it right" and he delivered in every way. He lined up spectacular studio musicians as well, who really fit perfectly with my sound. I really can't say enough about Stephen's input and dedication to my album (Born of Ashes). He went way above and beyond what I expected. He is top notch, a true pro and a gentleman with a great sense of humor. If it were up to me, I'd give him an award. Thank you so much!!! ~Allegra Wakest

Stephen invited me and my son Jack to record some vocals for one of his compositions. Stephen knows what he wants, and he knew how to describe it to us, and he didn't move on until we had given our best performance. If that sounds a little demanding, well it was, but in the best possible way. Strong musicians have a good ear, right? But unless you have spent years in a studio, you probably don't have a "studio" ear. What impressed me about Stephen was how he could hear every nuance in the moment. Not a lot of time wasted on playbacks and debate. I think we achieved a higher quality over a shorter period of time because Stephen knew what he wanted and he was able to hear what was happening and describe back to us how to improve it. He was very positive and encouraging throughout the process. He has great studio tools and he managed all the technology effortlessly. Another thing I liked was how he kept us focused on what we were attempting to communicate. It was a demanding session, but I left feeling like it was work that I will always be proud of.

Having worked with Stephen Bigger on numerous concert and recording projects in a wide variety of musical styles, I know him to be a profoundly knowledgable and inspired/inspiring musician/teacher. His command of music and recording technology is second to none. Stephen is very perceptive and empathetic, and able to direct and coach musicians of every age and level to maximize their performance. He creates a safe, confident atmosphere, bringing out the best in each musician.

I went to El Cerrito Studio by the recommendation of a friend of mine. The task that I had in hand was difficult, I had to lay down the drum tracks to a prerecorded material that was just a guide more than a full recording. After all the work was done I was very pleasantly surprised with the results, Oscar is a superb engineer and Kenya was there at all times to provide assistance. Prices for their services were very, very reasonable, therefore, I fully recommend El Cerrito Studio, they are highly experienced and very client centric.
