We've just begun a recording project that entails multiple sessions. So far Biosonic Recording is an efficiently and professionally run studio - and to date we trust and appreciate the quality of service and expertise rendered.

Bryan helped my daughter with a recording for her musical theatre production. Not only was he professional, he was kind and patient with my nervous eleven year old. We have never been to a recording studio and by the time we were finished she didnt't want to leave. We would highly recommend Bryan and will plan to use his services in the future.

His experience speaks for itself! He was very prompt with communication, willing to work with my schedule changes, and provided a lot of helpful insight into making music and recording. I also appreciate how he uses both digital and analog when mixing and mastering. Helps you feel comfortable in the studio, and walks through the process with you. Definitely recommend working with Pierre!

I have found GOLD in Joe at Project Won Studios and if you use their services, so will you. This review is going to read like a commercial – but it’s honest and comes from heart. As sound engineers or producers, one of the things at the top of the list that’s required is the ability to make constant judgments about audio quality from the myriad different groups from with which one works. It’s an essential prerequisite to have a valid frame of reference — something upon which you can base a subjective and valid opinions. Joe scores big in this arena and has that very sense innately embedded in his work style, ethic and his very core; it’s mighty impressive and why he’s so successful in his business. That alone would suffice for a successful recording session. But for my experience, that’s where it STARTS with Project Won Studios. If you’re looking for more than just a solid engineer, you’ll be thrilled at every step along the way with this organization. Do you need a guide who will coach you and educate you through the recording process? Someone to help you to bring out the best in your project? Need help getting your recorded tracks mixed to sound great? This IS the place. Or, perhaps you’re well-rounded in this filed and don’t need the above – Joe knows when to take a back seat, and play any role in the process needed. This is truly an amazing skill-set that’s rarely found in this business. Now let’s add the icing on the cake … Joe is a great human being who is kind, patient, super talented, honest, positive, and always found ways to make my project exceed my highest expectations – a true and rare gift! Joe is my producer, engineer, and mixer for life! Thank you Project Won Studios!

I am a singer/songwriter who is a senior (a "baby boomer") and am "notoriously late" to appointments. I had thought of cancelling this dream of mine ( I had to cancel twice before because I double booked! I had borrowed the bus fare from a senior center personnel to travel there, it was rainy and cloudy. I had not eaten, had no time to cook anything nor had any money to buy a fast lunch BUT for the sake of my soul, I took the hour long trip to beautiful Mukilteo and really thought the gentleman would find fault with me because of my tardiness, BUT surprisingly, he was very gracious and even picked me up from the pier! I had the song list prepared. I asked for water and coffee and he provided both. He is an astute business person, a Christian who attends church each week and plays music for the praise services. So unlike previous studio experiences, where the personnel had ?nable behavior, Mr. Nicholson was respectful and focused. I recorded eleven tracks ( including two original pieces) and he was attentive from start to finish. Joe was concerned for my safety and insisted on driving me to my apartment. I left Mukilteo with a completed album and no hunger pangs. The following week I sent him a fee for the wonderful work he did and I am indeed satisfied with the artistic alliance we have established!
