I have recorded at many studios over the years, big & small, from Toronto, Canada to L.A., to Nashville! But I can honestly say of all my many travels and great experiences at some of the very best studios on the planet, Scenic Ridge by far was my most wonderful experience of all !! Randy Dorman is a truly amazing talent..., a well seasoned "Pro" with so much experience and multi-talented in so many aspects of the entertainment industry! Not only is he a great musican who has traveled around the globe with the mega star Kenny Rogers and performed on some of the biggest stages around the world with Kenny..., as well as playing guitar for many other huge stars..., but he is also a "spot-on" engineer with state-of-the-art equipment in his studio and knows how to use it!!!! The sound that he produces from his studio is nothing short of amazing with the "WOW" factor!!
Seriously folks! 🙂 And if that's not enough..., he is an excellent producer with very clever ideas with a marketable approach to be a cut above the rest in this crazy competitive music business that is ever changing, but Randy changes right along with it and even tries to stay a step ahead! I felt so at home and so at ease the first time I walked in to his studio and knew immediately that I was in good hands! So many studios will try to do a decent production on your tunes, but charge a bundle for it, then you're out the door and on your own again. With Randy..., it's much more than making some money and then moving on to the next project! He treats it like it's his own project and truly wants you to succeed and will do everything possible to make that happen! I can truly say he IS the best producer I've ever had the pleasure of working with and plan to have him produce my 5th cd in the near future! But there's more ladies & gentlemen......, he also is quite the photographer, having shot many photo sessions for Kenny Rogers as well as album covers for him..., I thought "why not" he's done a great job on everything else! And as you can see for yourself, the end result was very KQQL !! I love this cover shot he did on me and it is my best album yet, music & art work! I'm very proud to have my name on this project that he and his sweet wife Ann worked so hard on! She did a great job on my make-up and is quite the make up artist.., what a team they are!!! And on top of that..., they fed me real good! lol So I give this endorsement straight from the heart and I assure you..., if you record here, ya can't go wrong! And their not only good "honest" folks to work with.., they have become "treasured" friends.
Scenic Ridge Studios has become a "home away from home" for me. I am a singer/songwriter and speaker, I met Randy and Ann a little over two years ago. Randy and I have written and recorded a number of songs together, and besides being a fantastic guitar player, Randy is a great producer. He has been an absolute joy to work with. Randy also did my promotional shots for my latest CD, and I'm thrilled with the results. Randy and Ann are people of integrity, hard-working, and full of love and compassion. I would highly recommend Scenic Ridge!
