Recording Studio Testimonials From Some Great Artist

This has been a dream come true for an old songwriter!

I was kind of apprehensive at first. My songs are my ‘babies’ and I wanted to hear them performed as close to as written that was possible. The recommended changes that were made were actually an improvement. The entire project was finished in ‘record’ time.

The Studio and Tony Ray Jones exceeded my wildest hopes. I never thought that such talented and well known musicians would take part in this project. Later this year I hope to repeat this experience. I feel comfortable and trust my music to these talented people.

Thank you so much!

I enjoyed the private country location and felt comfortable doing the recording in a relaxed atmosphere. The experience was fun and enjoyable. I was looking for a recording to share with family and friends.The finished product benefited from Tony’s musical experience and technology taking my recording from a good product to a ‘great’ product!

Mark Owen - Mark Owen MusicMany thanks for the final mix which is great, so I’ve used it as the MP3 for the website here: Landslide Blue.com.

And of course, I am happy to credit you and the professional musicians with with arranging, mixing and producing my song.  Also I’ve included you on my links page under “Recording Studios” for a country, folk or blues song.

Finally a big “thank you” to yourself, Kim, Larry, Al and George. A song is nothing without a good recording and I’m really lucky to have such an excellent performance from you. Should you be agreeable, I look forward to sending you further projects in the future.

At Backwoods Studio, my songs always turn out better than I imagined they could ever be. I can’t emphasize enough how Tony Ray’s talented input plays such a HUGE part in my ability to capture the ears of industry professionals!

But what I like most is Tony Ray’s professional, yet laid back way of doing things in the studio. He keeps the original nature of my songs intact, but has a way of highlighting the features that need to shine! I can’t wait to bring my next batch of songs to Backwoods too!

Why pay more for an excellent demo or album ready recording. I always get a caring personal touch with Tony Ray Jones at The Backwoods Studio.

I get great reactions when publishers, labels and everyday people hear the finished product. Tony is a pro and he knows how to get the best out of your time and your talent.

Tammy ViceSome studios just crank out the songs for a fee. Thank you for taking the time to listen, and then giving each song exactly what it needs.

Love the Backwoods comfort and Up Front quality!

Thanks Tony Ray.

Recording Studio Testimonial from Kelly Nolf - SongwriterI had a great experience at Backwoods studio cutting some material with my family.

It was like singing around at home; very intimate and homey. Can’t wait to do it again!

BACKWOODS takes time and attention to provide us finished material that quality wise makes us appear we invested much more than our limited funds allow us. If writer composers need demo’s to get listened to for sales, the work must be as close to what the actual artist would be that record’s the song.

BACKWOODS takes the time to assist the arrangement, the best complimentary instrumentation, and provides a sample of their suggestions before it actually is laid down for YOU to approve. Backwoods is the only service we’ve used that gives us the opportunity to make amendments and get the song the way we wrote it.

Rich & Carol SalcidoI am not a professional song writer and have never had a demo produced before. However, I wanted to have a professional demo made of a song that I wrote to my wife when I was deployed overseas in the Army.

You clearly explained the process, answered all my questions, and offered many good suggestions. You also put extra effort into the project. As a result of your professionalism, talent and expertise, the final product was superb. My wife and I are very pleased with your effort. I would recommend Backwoods Studio to anyone.

“I’m extremely pleased with Backwoods Recording Studio. I have used them time and again to do guitar/vocal demos of my songs. Tony has good instincts for what kind of feel each song needs to be its best.

He produces quality results at a reasonable price, and as an added bonus, when I need an authentic country male vocal Tony’s voice delivers.

My experience at Backwoods Studio was first class. Each day started out with a cup of coffee in a very professional and relaxed atmosphere.

Backwoods Studio was well prepared and organized so that no time was wasted in the recording process and the project stayed easily within my budget.

The final product came out even better than I had anticipated and I look forward to working with Tony again once I have a couple more songs ready.
