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."
