Reviews for Austin recording studio professionals
Dan H.
His studio was under construction for the date of my voice-over demo recording, so he booked me a studio and we recorded in the time allotted and had it sent off to my producer.

I did 2 long studio sessions with Jake editing podcasts. He was fantastic, he was able to quickly and thoughtfully read and understand what I was trying to do. There was a lot of stopping and starting of the recordings, and he was patient, enthusiastic, and engaging, he really jumped into the project and brought perspectives I just would never had. I am planning on going back into the studio and am looking forward to another recording session with him.

My band and I recently used Kevin and Lava Studios to record an EP. His prices are extremely affordable, and more than fair. Kevin's ear, and technical knowledge helped us achieve the sound we were hoping for. I've listened to the tracks he has on his website, and knowing how he did our record, I can tell you there isn't anything he can't do. From extensive producing to live take vintage feeling stuff that's more straight forward, he can do it all. Really though, everything boils down to his ear, it's amazing how quickly he can pick out which note was the sour one. He's an invaluable part to anyone young band trying to record the best record that they can. His demeanor in the studio is very professional, encouraging and helpful. He has a good understanding of people, and he listens. If your trying to find the perfect engineer/producer for a project, he's your man. Plain and simple.

I had a chance to work with Joshua last week and he is the best. I decided to record the entire album with him! So many studios in this town and all they want is your money by the hour. No love! He took my track to a level that I could never do on my own and it was amazing! Patient, caring, open, understanding, dedicated, passionate, helpful, name it. Thank you Captain!

Kevin is a professional in every sense of the word. He is organized, diligent, and creative. Recording my band Kindatheart's first EP was our first time recording in a full studio setting, and we could not be more pleased with the work Kevin has put into bringing our vision to life. Kevin is an expert when it comes to engineering and producing. If you are looking for someone to just push buttons and tell you it sounds good, then Kevin is not for you. If you are looking for someone with a vast knowledge of guitar, bass, keyboards, and vocals who will push you to get the best out of your talent then your search is done. Kevin helped us create new guitar lines and vocal harmonies that have transformed the songs to another level. He's always attentive to the goals of the band and is detail-oriented so that the artist can capture the sound they are hoping to achieve. In conclusion, I would highly recommend Kevin for your next recording project. -Jack Scheffler, Kindatheart
