Is it rolling, Bob?

WOW! is here to help you create and capture your musical magic.

We work with the artist or band from the early stages of songwriting and arranging, to the final production of an album or recorded song.

The creation process can be the most rewarding part of it all. WOW! helps to guide the artist towards their goals, while capturing it all to “tape”. There’s nothing like it!

Recording Studio Services

Currently, WOW! is a mobile studio + a small production studio. Don't let that scare you away. Some of the worlds biggest artists record in barns, homes, and apartments (Dan Lanois, Feist, Sufjan Stevens, The Rolling Stones, to name just a few). There is something to be said about recording an album in a space that is free of being a "cold" studio, and can add to the creative process of recording. It's a once-in-a-lifetime type experience.

These services include:

  • Engineering
  • Mixing
  • Mastering
  • Producing

*GEAR LIST COMING SOON.  EMAIL or CALL if you want info.

A Note About Rates: Currently we don’t put our rates online.  The only reason is that every project is different from the last.  Every artist has a different vision.  It’s important for us at WOW! to learn about what you want to do both technically and creatively.  This conversation helps us to provide you with the most accurate quote, while getting to know eachother at the same time.
