Michael Briggs is the kind of engineer you want, cool, calm, collected, logical, fast as hell on those keyboard shortcuts, with a great ear. Briggs really knows his stuff and its always great to come in and record at Civil Audio. Looking forward to more! (Also that pour over coffee... bonus!!!)

A+ recording experience. Very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He really understands exactly what the artists are trying to achieve. I've recorded with Michael in 3 different bands, all vastly different genres and every recording session has been outstanding. I've recorded with a few other places in the past, but working with Michael at Civil Audio has by far been the best experience.

Not only does Michael have an amazing reputation for being reliable and easy to work with, he also has a lengthy backlog of releases that show his diversity and ability to work with any type of artist. Let's be real, if you're a band in the DFW area and you haven't recorded with Michael Briggs, you're whack af.

He's basically the best in Denton. His style combines rapid-pace DIY experimentalism with carefully considered hard/software choices. His production style is a great fit for virtually any genre of music, whether you're an avant garde sound collagist, Jazz Improv artist, or 3-piece rock band. He's also always 100% sober to the point where friends and I have come to the conclusion that his drug of choice IS Audio Work. (Possibly supplemented with Cat Pets.)

My favorite part about working with Michael is how much he invested himself into my band's record, wanting to make it the best it could be. He has an amazing ear and great ideas. If you want to work with someone who cares about their work, go with Michael Briggs. Plus his cat is adorable.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Recording (tracking) is done by time which is usually either tracked in full days or hourly. Mixing and mastering is charged per song. Send me a message to request rates.

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

    I love being able to work with new clients especially if it is your first time to record. I always do my best to make you comfortable and feel confident. I can take your song and make it sound the best it can sound.

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

    I have over 18 years of experience with audio in various capacities. I have recorded hundreds of bands and thousands of songs and have experienced just about every situation possible. I have been voted "Best Studio Sound Engineer" by the public at the Denton Arts and Music Awards for 2017, 2018 and 2019.
