We also can help you get your music published and have a partnership with Paradise Music Distribution and Spotify! Ask about our web design services and marketing team as well.


Our rates couldn’t be simpler. Although we usually bill labels $200-250 an hour for commercial film and jingle work, we are proud to announce a much lower local rate for  only $100/hr and only $600 a day, which includes a full time engineer (300 for room, 300 for engineer). This way you can focus on what you do best. Once you have worked in our rooms and are comfortable with the patchbays and equipment, you are allowed to bring in your own engineer and knock off 300 a day from your daily rate. This practice is standard in most studios around the world.

Joshua Lutz has worked with artists such as DMX, Maroon 5, Joss Stone, D’Angelo, Guns N’ Roses, Roc Marcy, Lil Wayne, Jennifer Lopez, Chamillionaire, Al Green and more. He has produced over 1000 songs and knows his way in and around a studio. No matter how big or small the project, each artist is treated as if it is the most important thing we’ve ever done. This is our guarantee to our community and to you.
