Reviews for Austin recording studio professionals

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.

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
