Who We Are
We have over 20 years of experience in helping Christian artists produce great sounding albums, songs, and arrangements, as well as finding their true potential, calling, and the right course for their music ministry.
We’re experienced with client needs, working on a deadline, fixing problems, and providing services like MP3 demos and overnight approvals.
Our producers are not just studio engineers, but amazing songwriters, arrangers, and consultants, who can help guide your project and career as you seek to grow to a new level of music and ministry.

Dennis Dearing . Artist Relations/Producer/Guitarist
Dennis has chosen to devote his time to the independent musician who is in need of mentoring and direction. Dennis is quick to note, “nothing is more satisfying than being a part of making someone’s dream come true. Maybe it’s their first song recorded or their first song on the radio. Either way, it’s a privilege to be a part of what God is doing through their music.”
