Meet the team
Chief Engineer | Producer | Guitarist | Lover of iced coffee & tubes.<br />
“Growing up on cassette tapes and CDs of Def Leppard and Boston, I found a love for music through my father’s eclectic 70s and 80s rock collection. I chased music early, learning guitar and piano at the age of 12 and playing with several bands in high school. But once I set foot in a recording studio, I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life! After graduating from the Sound Recording Program at Texas State University, I teamed up with Alex Ballentine in Austin, TX to rebrand and reopen Eastside Music Studios. At EMS, I love to take sounds and push them to their sonic limit. Whether it’s re-amping drums through guitar pedals or just throwing a vocal through an Altoids mini-guitar amp (yes, like the breath mints), I want to explore new and unique sounds with passionate and creatives alike.”

…And The perfect Space to Do it
Situated in a wood adorned historic building in Downtown Austin, Eastside Music Studios was meticulously crafted for the Recording Artist seeking to elevate their sound. Our acoustically designed rooms, professional sound engineers, vintage analog gear and modern digital processing ensure a premium experience for our clientele.
We have 3 dedicated tracking rooms plus a lounge. Studio A is our flagship room, large enough for drum tracking or to accommodate a live band. Studio B is our iso-booth, perfectly tailored for high quality vocal work, and our “Gershwin Room” is home to our Steinway baby grand piano.
Located just east of downtown, you’ll find plenty of dining options for those all day studio sessions.
