Elevate your music

Recording studio services

Record your vocals with confidence in our custom built vocal isolation booth. Prepare to sound your best through our Industry Standard preamps from Universal Audio, as you listen back live in our premium Sennheiser monitoring headphones.
We pride ourselves on delivering professional quality mixes to all of our clients. Our Engineers are extremely well versed in a variety of mixing techniques and genres. No matter the tone, mood, or sound you want from your next project, Backup Studios can help you get it done!
Nowadays, it’s not enough just to record and mix. Artists need a one stop shop where they can start from scratch and leave with a song ready for release! We recognize that, which is why mastering is at the forefront of our services offered. Once mixed, your engineer will then dedicate the time to perfect the sonics of your song so it’ll sound loud and clear on all platforms!

About The Owner

“Hey I’m Zach, Engineer and Owner here at Backup Studios. Its nice to meet you!”

I founded Backup Studios in 2021 with one goal in mind. I wanted every artist, regardless of experience level, style, or genre, to make their best song yet. That goal inspired me to do things differently.

Personalization and attention to detail are the foundation of our creative process. Regardless of the song, I can assure that when you book a session with me you’ll get nothing less than 100% of my time, attention and effort. No two songs are the same, so expect an individualized mix approach to each and every one of your projects!

Since I opened Backup Studios, one thing I’ve learned is that making each artist feel comfortable and confident in the studio is the key to great music. Because of this, you’ll find that we’ve devoted ourselves to maintaining a pristine, clean, and creatively conducive environment with some of the best equipment around. Our studio is designed for comfort, with plenty of seating, and bottled water provided to every session, we’re confident that you’ll feel right at home in your next session.

Thank you to each and every one of our customers, new and returning! Each session we do is a brand new opportunity to make your best song yet!

Hope to see you soon!
