"Hi Guys

Our Tracks Sound Gorgeous! It's why I came to you for this, just awesome"

  • We love working with Mark at Austin to Boston!  The prices are very reasonable, the hours are flexible, and they work with the highest amount of integrity.  Mark is friendly and professional with recording and mastering, he listens to what you want and will go out of his way to make it happen.  Mark recorded, mixed and mastered our band's first EP, and we are extremely happy with the quality!  Our band uses his practice rooms weekly, and we call the studio our "second home" because we are so comfortable there.  It's a perfect environment for music, from rehearsing to recording, in a secure location that is pretty central to our group.  Thank you, Mark and Austin to Boston!

"Austin to Boston is the place to go if you are a serious musician who wants to record at a world class studio. It also comes at an affordable price that is well worth the final product. That's hard to find these days." Danny Austin

"Austin To Boston is a full service studio. They know how to get great recordings!!
I've recorded many Perris Records CDs there."

Tom Mathers
Pesident - Perris Records

"When we were shopping studios for our second album, we were pretty sure that we had found the right place after talking for 5 minutes on the phone.  When we met with him and saw the studios, we were hooked.They took the time to listen to our music and our goals, and outlined a plan that fit our budget.  Most of the other studios we called told us how much we needed to spend before they heard one note of our music."

"In the end, we feel like we got a great product that sounds like us.  We'll be back"

Ken Carver
The Rhythm Dawgs

"Working @ Austin To Boston was great!  We felt completely at ease and not stressed in any way. He worked his butt off and the result was our cd- full, finished and marketable."

"He is thorough and direct, and he knows how to get the best sound out of people. He had great ideas about our music and really listened to our vision of the project. It was a joy to work with him and we are looking forward to projects with him in the future! He's a master at his craft-and if he takes your project on-know that you're going to get a top quality product."

Stephen James

"Thanks for all your work on the recent Love Machine demo. I'm happy to say that I'm getting good feedback from both the rest of the band, and the people we're pitching it to. Obviously, a good finished product is the most important thing, but it certainly doesn't hurt that the recording process itself was an enjoyable experience from beginning to end. I appreciate both your technical expertise, and your generosity with your time."

Rob Roeder
The Love Machine

"Everyone in Austin knows that if you kick a can a band falls out of it.
Well, the same thing could be said of recording studios. Austin to Boston
Studio offers so much more. From their awesome (and comfortable) studio
set-up to their on-stage and recording musical experience to their
patience and sense of humor to their "killer" finished product. Austin to
Boston Studio is the only place RiverStone Band will record!! "

Thanks ... your awesome!!!!

"Austin to Boston is a fantastic place,.. you get a real pro with Mac, he has the awesome and rare lost art of 70s analogue recording knowledge, and there ant' no plug in for that! He is a great guy too..."

"When you hire a studio/engineer, you expect that they will have good equipment. Austin to Boston does. You expect that they know how to run it efficiently. The engineers at Austin to Boston do.

What Austin to Boston has that is very rare is the combination of good ears and excellent personalities that make what can be a very stressful time into one of absolute comfort and as a result more gets done, it sounds better and it happens more quickly.

I recommend Austin to Boston wholeheartedly. "

  • I have been going to this studio for close to 2 years now. Our band utilizes the facility for both rehearsal and studio time and always feel at home. Mark (owner) always makes us feel comfortable when recording and really gives you your moneys worth. I've been to other studios and have never been treated as good as I have here. I would and have recommended this studio to other musicians. A well deserved 5 star rating in my book.

    This studio is the best in the Austin area. Recorded both my albums here. Great sound, and the owner Mark is not only a really nice guy, but a great producer and drummer. He stays with your idea and caters to you as the artist and your vision, which is rare for producers. I wouldn't go anywhere else. If you're looking for the best studio in the Austin area, this is it. Trust me. Danny Austin .Singer /GTR /Song writer
