"For more than a decade, we’ve trusted John exclusively with the live recording and mastering of our stage productions, in addition to special technical audio projects that require creative solutions. John’s meticulous approach, seamless integration, and thorough understanding of our desired end-goals all combine to make John an easy choice, each and every time."

“I had the pleasure of working with John on a recording of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in 2008. John was painstaking in every phase of the project, from initial planning to editing and final mixing of the recording. He was acutely aware of what the group and I were looking for in terms of the artistic “feel” of the recording and in details of balance, sound quality and a “live” sense to the finished project. I highly recommend him!

-Odin Rathnam, American Violinist and former concertmaster, Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra


“We began working with John back in in 2010. Three Years and Three Albums later, John’s Sound Design is still the de facto home for our band when it comes to recording. John’s recording know-how is unquestioned, whether it is mike placement or software editing. John’s studio is truly a great stress-free environment to craft a musical project!”

-Peter Lee, Seasons
