I requested singing lessons and received 6 quotes rangers big from $36/hr to $100/hr. I eliminated 3 of them just based on the message they wrote to me and their reviews or lack there of. My passion is indie rock and Jan does not fit the profile of a rocker and she was vocally trained as an opera singer. However, her reviews were positive, she was priced in the middle, her message to me was pertinent and once I called and spoke to her I was sold. I didn't bother contacting the other two quotes I was interested in. Needless to say, my hunch was right and I had my first lesson last week. It went incredibly well. She amazed me. I am a song writer wanting to improve my vocals so I can work indecent from hiring a singer. I showed he some of my recorded originals and within seconds she knew what I had to improve to make my voice fit the song better. We changed the key a whole step, she had me pronounce some of the words differently and she gave input in to what could improve for the song instrumentally. She started showing me current artists and what I could take from their particular songs to inspire some rhythmic changes. she had suggestions on where to go and present my music to sale for commercial/tv/advertising. She had big picture advice on where to focus my energies. I couldn't believe what we packed in to a one hour rehearsal. She sat at her piano and taught me vocal exercises and explained to me how I could improve on them with what I call tricks to break certain bad habits I have formed. I can't wait to see her next week. She can totally rock!!!

I contacted Josh to produce an original song I had written. After telling him my budget and explaining what I wanted the song to sound like, we scheduled a time to record for the very next week. I arrived at his amazing home studio and we recorded the whole song within a few hours. He wasted no time and sent me the first draft of the song later that day asking for my feedback on what I liked/didn’t like and if it was sounding like what I had envisioned for the song. He then took my feedback and continued to edit – sending me drafts along the way to make sure I liked and approved of the changes. I received the final version of the song extremely fast - within a couple days after the recording session – and I love the way it turned out. At first I was a little hesitant to hire a producer because I have worked with other producers in the past that hadn’t listened to my vision for the song and proceeded to produce it in the way they wanted it to sound. However, Josh was not like the producers I have worked with in the past. He really took the time to make sure he fully understood my vision so that he could help me create the song I wanted. Josh is a really great producer. He’s also extremely fun to work with and made me feel extremely comfortable throughout the entire production process. I would highly recommend working with him!

My family feels very fortunate to be musically connected with Mr. Damien Smith My son, Corey, has been taking guitar lessons from him for the last two years and he has really made major strides as a young musician. The skills, knowledge, support and flexibility that Damien provides has kept my son excited and dedicated to learn more! Not to mention that he also has a refurbished home studio with an array of tech equipment and musical instruments to record your music - which is a bonus! We highly recommend him as an instructor! He's one very cool, nice guy!

Tracy has been an invaluable asset for me in helping me get my voice over career off the ground. She provides detail oriented craft coaching and individually tailored career mentoring to an extent which well exceeded my expectations. She truly cares about her student's success! With Tracy's step by step guidance, I have set up a professional quality in home studio, secured agency representation, and started booking. Thanks to her my confidence as a voice actor is at an all time high, and I feel I'm becoming the caliber of professional you must be if you're to succeed in this extremely competitive industry.

Jonathan was amazing to work with! I'm a filmmaker who came to Jon to get a little ADR recorded, and ended up asking him to mix my entire project, do foley for it, and work with the singer/actress who recorded a song for the film. Our actress didn't have a lot of singing experience, but Jon was able to make her feel comfortable enough on her first time recording to get a really great performance. He also had fantastic suggestions to add to the song's production value. I would hire Jon as a specialist in any of these areas, and his proficiency in all these areas really streamlined my postproduction process. Highly recommend!!

My student and I tracked vocals here and mixed a song. The studio is small but really professional. The vocal sounds great as the room is properly treated. The gear is top of the line and engineer Alex was great. Definitely the place to record!

I hired Joey to record and produce the single on my new record. He took the time to meet with me and work on the vision I had for my song. He is a really cool guy and I was absolutely blown away by his professionalism and ability. I got a pro studio quality song in the end for a very competitive price.

Taylor is the ultimate Pop Music Producer! He understands every kind of Top 40/Hit Music/Swedish Pop music which is why I chose him for my project. This is a professional you will be working with. He works faster on Pro Tools than I can keep up with my eyes, and I'm a Pro Tools 10 user myself. If you are looking for a HIT SONG, this is the man you need to contact. I have worked with many producers across the country, & he is the opposite than a lot of others. A lot of other producers do NOT like to always be told different ideas and directions, because it takes up their time. Taylor encourages talk within the project at all times. He always says it's the little things that can make a song huge- so speak up! THIS IS KEY to having a song that's not only a hit, but a hit in which you feel comfortable to sing live. I can't say I WOULD go back to him, because I already AM back in the studio working on the next project! :) Taylor is embracing of any styles/flares you prefer your music to have, so let the imagination go crazy while he starts exploring any direction or fusion of directions in music you like, because he will ultimately transfer a "crazy idea" into something radio friendly. I'm a very straightforward person who needs my music mixed/produced professionally,yet kindly with a personality too, in order to make me feel non-vulnerable while recording. Taylor is the ultimate in laid-back and friendly- with a genuine kindness to the table that can't be faked or authenticated. This implies passion within his work, and it shows. Book him yourself to find out, I'm glad I did, have no regrets whatsoever and highly advise people who want to fast-track their pop careers to contact him immediately to have him start working magic.

We are completing what will be the first of 4 CDs. Brian Bolen is knowledgeable , competent and completely well versed in technology and procedure. His ideas are not limited to any one genre of music. He is a dedicated and creative professional musician, recording engineer and producer. I am extremely pleased with everything we have accomplished thus far. With Brian's expertise and careful attention to details, I expect this to be a successful ongoing relationship in which I can produce my original material according to my musical vision !

Simon is not only incredibly professional, but amazing to work with. He's quick and an ultra perfectionist, so your stuff will sound better than you imagined. I've worked with dozens of producers in the past, and this has been one of the best experiences I've had in a studio setting. I will absolutely be a repeat customer and will unequivocally recommend Simons studio to every artist I know.

My experience here at Karios Recording Studio is the best experience I've had in any studio. Joe, the owner, is probably the coolest dude I have met while working in studio. He brought together an amazing team to work on my project. He's very committed to what he does and he makes sure I leave the studio, with what I want. I can't wait to release the project I've been working on at Karios. Joe always makes sure I have everything the way I want it to be and always makes sure I leave satisfied and I do so everytime. I highly recommend Karios Recording Studio. I'm already booked to work on another project!

I’ve been playing and recording for 35 years and I’ve worked at a high level with some very talented people. I’m not going to name drop because it doesn’t matter, and if I were you it would stop me from reading the rest of this, but if you care about your music and want to put it in the hands of someone who has mad skills as a engineer/producer, and one of the best set of ears in town, then at least do yourself a favor and go meet and talk about your project with Andrew. He’s top shelf, cares about the music, is an incredible musician and multi-instrumentalist to help with vocals, guitar, or keys, and lays down some tasty bass & drum tracks. Best thing is he’s a great guy and an amazing partner to have in the creative process.

Taylor is so talented at what he does and is one of the nicest guys I've ever met in the industry. As a vocalist, he makes me feel comfortable while recording and really knows how to work with my voice. He's positive and understands that the producer's job is to make the studio atmosphere easy to work in and to get the best results out of the artist. Taylor is very versatile in what he can do as a producer and also knows how to make any genre he is working on sound radio ready, clean and very high quality. He also keeps current with his sounds. He's always been early to our sessions and keeps it very professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a hard working, reliable producer, who does quality work in a timely manner.

Phillip is a down-to-earth gentleman with exquisite technical know-how, and an exceptional ear for what not only sounds great--but sounds right for the recording. He is a deft, calm, hands-on guiding force; he recorded my mini-orchestral chamber pop song which involved Violins, violas, cellos, upright bass, electric bass, Rhodes piano, and a chorus of voices. It turned out magical and outstanding. Plus he knows some sweet places to eat--making any session time that much better.
