12/6/20 || Update

Hey all,

Henry here. It's been quite a while since we offered any sort of update. We're still here! It's been a hell of a year for everyone but we feel fortunate to still be able to operate and have been taking advantage of the time to make some upgrades to the studio. More on that soon...

Meanwhile check out some of the new sound examples of projects that were recorded and/or mixed here at the studio.
Contact for prices and information about what sort of sessions we're able to do amid the pandemic.
