Soggy Dog Recording is one of Melbourne's leading music production studios for singers, songwriters, and bands.
Are you an emerging or established singer, songwriter, band, or music artist who needs a professional audio recording to get your music ready to compete with songs on

Spotify, YouTube and iTunes?
Why it's worth the drive.

It's not just about the gear, but the experience and skill of the producer/engineer (and the gear). Don't do it on your own. Creating and producing music is always a collaborative process for famous music artists. We will simplify the process, from pre-production, arrangement, recording, editing, mixing and mastering.

We aim to make a recording that's ready to compete against your most formidable rivals.

Google Review 

"I was so happy to return to Soggy Dog Recording Studio recently and work with Steve. I have worked with Steve on a few different projects over the years and trust him beyond his work as an engineer. As he is an experienced musician himself I am always excited to see how he collaborates towards each song. Being very resourceful with his network of artists and his extensive experience over the years, I not only enjoy recording with Steve but love to sit and watch, learning from his craft. I highly recommend working with Steve at Soggy Dog Recording Studio for whatever genre or stage you might be in your career."
