Mannn. I can’t even tell you how amazing my first experience inside of a recording studio was! Jake really made me fall in love with my project and brought my vision to life. If it’s your first time or 500th, GO SEE JAKE. Straight up, GO DJ!!

Working with Jake has been such a pleasure, he is such a genuinely kind person and you’ll love working with him. he truly cares about making your demo/ep/record sound GREAT and can help you reach your potential in the studio because has the knowledge and exceptional skills to get the job done both quickly and at the very top level in quality that’s RADIO READY. To choose another studio would be a shame! Work with Jake once and you won’t regret it, trust me. I doubt you’ll even look elsewhere after that for any of your recording needs 🤩 He turned around a MASTERED demo for a student who wanted one song (using a backing track) in less than 48 hours on short term notice. We were so lucky he had an opening in his schedule and took it immediately. I still suggest booking ahead, he’s usually pretty booked up but he’s really responsive and will quickly get back to you. Great communication.

We are so thankful that we found Jake. He spent a lot of time giving us feedback before we started the project to make sure we had the best product. This was our first time in the studio and our daughter is only thirteen so he did a great job of making us feel comfortable. Jake really took the time to make sure that the songs reflected her vision while guiding her with industry standard type suggestions. He always made sure to respect our time and give us extra time to make the final product perfect. We highly recommend working with Jake!!!

I knew Jake’s knowledge of production was excellent before meeting him, and my experience with him, producing an audio for my website, verified this. The final product was exactly what I envisioned, meaning, when we first met, he really listened to and understood what I was hoping to create. The quality is top-notch and I enjoyed talking with him. An A+ experience. Highly recommended.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First off, I understand there could be a lot of "...fear of the unknown"... as I'm sure you have all heard HORROR STORIES about the recording process, and the music business, in general. I try to connect with the artist over the phone, or via text message, to address those fears and get them to a place were they are comfortable, and ready to share their vision for their music project. I will then schedule a meeting at the my studio, with a walk-thru and tour of our facilities. We then settle into our conference room, to talk more about your project, vision, creative approach, timeline, budget, etc. I ask about the goals/expectations of their project regarding social media numbers (if any), sales, streams, video views, desired promotion/marketing campaigns, etc. I then talk about how the process typically works, and try to answer ALL of their questions, and concerns, about our individual approach to each, and every project that we do here.... Once they are comfortable, I'll then show them some of our most popular recording/production packages, and we'll try to settle in on one. We may schedule a "follow-up" pre-production meeting, if necessary, but then we'll schedule their first recording session!! Pretty simple and stress-free!!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I was trained as a recording engineer/music producer at The Recording Workshop in Chillicothe, OH, Columbia College, in Chicago, Il, and CyberTEX Institute of Technology, in Austin, Texas.
