SERVICES AND PRICES
All of us in the music business know things are tougher than ever out there. It is more difficult than ever to get cuts, paying shows, media playtime. Selling ourselves is more than a full time job. Why choose us? That's simple.
We don't record on two inch tape, we don't use union musicians. We will get a work for hire for all your demos, so your master is clear for Radio, Tv, and the Sync market.
I have a lifetime of experience, opening for national acts, being signed to a major label. I saw the advantages and disadvantages of traditional studios. Like it or not, the fully equipped home studio is the wave of the future. We are able to compete sonically with the best of studios out there. Our prices are reasonable and competitive
