"We love coming up to the mountains and recording and/or mixing our music. It must be something about the fresh air and the location perched above a valley that makes the perfect environment to be creative in. The gear has been everything we've needed and a whole lot we didn't - and we walked out of there with beautifully mixed albums from myself in solo mode, and with The Herd's Summerland album. I'd recommend it without hesitation"

"I've recorded three albums, an EP, a single and a radio program at Sound Heaven, all of which were produced by John Stuart, and all of which I love. My experienceof Sound Heaven is that as a producer John meets you exactly where you are, and takes you exactly where you need to go. He's listening to you all the time, and he does fantastic work with what he hears. I love the albums, but also I feel like I've really improved as a songwriter and a musician as a direct result of being there."

"Sound Heaven Studios has all the right gear and the ears to operate it. It is easily the most unique location for a studio I've ever encountered. John has a feel for a range of musical styles and was a pleasure to work with. The range of stand-alone gear gave our music the solidity and warmth that we were looking for. The process of mixing our record was very collaborative, and John was always open to suggestions. If you are looking to record and/or mix in a beautiful setting, with fantastic equipment operated by experienced hands, then look no further than  Sound Heaven Studios." Ozi Batla"

"I have recorded two solo albums at Sound Heaven Studios with John. My first release The Sweetest Sound was immediately placed o the ABC Playlist and we featured live with Phillip Adams shortly after. The sound quality obviously passed the National Broadcast test! John's lush and full horn arrangements, and his adventurous reharmonisations created quite a buzz with critics and muso's alike. The laid-back atmosphere in the studio surely evoked some beautiful playing from the session musicians and got the best out of me.  We are almost finished the second project and it has been an equally satisfying and exciting process, no doubt with similar results."

Freddie White - Recording Studio Sydney Blue Mountains Sound Heaven Studios  

Freddie White

Freddie isn't that well known in Australia ,very well known in Europe. We were knocked out to be involved in his first Australian record, because he's a great performer.

"Trish and I recorded our album 'HERE WITH YOU" in Sound Heaven. Some places are just conducive to music making and Heaven is definitely one of those.  
Some tracks we had started in Ireland  and some we recorded from scratch here and maybe it's the mountain air .. or maybe John's skill as an engineer but it all turned into something we are very proud of."

Recording our first EP in Soundheaven studios was an excellent experience and an engaging learning curve for BONNIEDOON. John's insight, advice and flexibility throughout the recording process was extremely valuable and the serene view from the studio's balcony kept us peacefully focused on the exciting task at hand. Thanks for a great first encounter in a professional studio.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recording experience at Sound Heaven Studios. Not only is it nestled in a particularly beautiful environment, but it was a genuine pleasure to work with John Stuart. I found myself trusting his musical sensibilities, and I appreciated his ideas , guidance , and skill.It was a creative and fun few weeks with maximum flexibility and zero stress. It goes without saying that we came away from the process with what we feel is a sonically gorgeous album, due in great part to the mixing and mastering talents available at Sound Heaven Studios.
