Recording . Mixing . Mastering . Production

Barn Owl Studio is located in a warehouse in central San Rafael, California and strives for high quality at reasonable low cost. Besides recording my own records I have worked as an audio engineer since the 90's and have over 25 years experience. I worked for 11.5 years running Dragonfly Studio doing recording, mixing, mastering and producing records for the children's music lable MUSIC FOR LITTLE PEOPLE  that included records of Donovan & Maria Muldaur. I have also worked with singer songwriters such as Tina Malia.   I've recorded classical, jazz, folk, pop, rock, gamelon, sitar, etc. etc.
