About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I believe the dedication to the direction of the artist is an important aspect of what The Record Shop has to offer. We have all the fancy equipment, but maintaining a clear vision of what the artist is seeking to achieve through their recording is invaluable to the process. I start every project with a series of pre-production sessions where we discuss the sonic vision of the material, work out arrangements, and allow everyone to get a feel for the studio. By the time we begin recording, everyone is on the same page, and we are able to focus on capturing the best performance. I take the time to get things right, so when we run the playback, the artist hears exactly what they were hearing in their head when they envisioned the material.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Goosebumps...the moment when the last note of a song is ringing out and I look around the room at everyone standing there with chills, knowing that we just got the "magic take" What a feeling! I had the privilege of recording vocals with a legendary artist a couple weeks ago, and as I glanced through the glass during the final take, I felt the emotion radiating from his performance, I was reminded of why making records is the only thing I've ever wanted to do with my life. The ability to spend every day creating something that will live forever is truly a blessing. I often refer to a quote from philosopher William James that sums it all up, "The best use of life is to use it for something that will outlast it."

    The Record Shop has a great vibe & amazing talent surrounds it. Producer Sean Giovanni is meticulous, thoughtful, innovative & dedicated to bringing out the best in the Artist & the song. In the churn an burn assembly line mentality of Nashville it's nice to find someone with the philosophy of "get it done right" not just "get it done right now!" Even being as busy as he is you still feel your project is the most important project he's working on. That kind of attention gives you a feeling of security knowing your project will be the best it can be. I'd say 4 thumbs up but I only have 2. Thanks & I look forward to the next session.

    The studio is well designed and equipped. The sessions have a relaxed but professional atmosphere. I like working with Sean Giovanni because his experience and guidance through sessions create unique approaches to your sound.

    The Record Shop in Hermitage was a great experience for our band. Sean is a perfectionist and will not stop until the quality of each song is impeccable. Not only does he have an "ear" for music, but he also had great input in the pre-production/writing process. We enjoyed the entire process and we have a beautiful product that we all are proud to call our own. I would recommend the Record Shop to any musician at any stage of their career. -Alternative Rock/Indie Band.

    The Record Shop is a fantastic, comfortable, affordable and friendly studio located convenient to most areas of Nashville. Giovanni and John are two of the most personable, capable and professional studio Cats you will ever meet. The gear is top shelf, the sounds are crunchy and the atmosphere is totally chill. Make your next album at this studio; I certainly will. -Jas Patrick
