Think of us as your old school A&Rs (Artists and repertoire). We are the ones you reach out to when you have an excellent sound you want discovered! If you are discovered and make it, a record label USED to put all of their capabilities behind you to help make your passion a reality. Now you must approach them with finished product in hand and proven "sales" to make it. This is NOT our style. We want to make it loud, make it proud, and bring the people that new music they have been dying for decade after decade. The digital music business doesn't scare us. Don't let it scare you. Music is not just our profession, it’s our passion. We specialize in Rock, Hard Rock, Metal, and Country music.

"Ron's production work is of the very highest caliber, competitive with anyone working in the professional broadcasting, music, film, or television industries. It goes beyond mere competence; what he offers is attention to detail. Every detail, every time."
Ben Failer - Radio Show Host
"Ron West is Professional Audio Engineering at it’s finest. I have worked alongside Ron for many years and have seen him evolve in his audio both in show production and post. Some of his creative endeavors include Video Production with his Keytone Productions brand and have brought upon some very unique projects I have yet to see from others in the field. If you don’t believe this review I strongly recommend you to google grade A qualities in audio engineers and I can bet you Ron can answer everything you fear of in worse case audio engineering scenarios and give you peace of mind when working with him."
Kent Villavicencio - Owner at Greentpyro Productions, LLC. "GTP"
Why do we exist?
In 2003, our first studio started in Woodbridge. I (Ron) was a young man then. My friends in high school and after jammed and made great music in this studio. Fast forward 15+ years and the studio has been recreated as a professional environment while still holding on to its decades old roots of our start. We provide a comfortable, and productive environment with a wide array of capabilities, microphones and other creative audio toys, all wired and ready to go when inspiration strikes. We exist for one reason and for one reason only; to help artists in ways no facility has been able to in decades.. Let's be honest here, the industry has changed in a way that none of us will likely ever be able to change back. The days of A&Rs coming to local music venues to scope out local talent and put gobs of money behind them, sending them to the most exclusive facilities in the world is over. What record labels want now is to see you show them everything already put together at the highest level.
For the most part that means artists such as yourself must self-fund your recordings, music videos, photography, graphic artwork, and any other factors needed. This can get extremely expensive and that is where WE come in.
Whether you are have a single, an EP, or even a full album already, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us take a listen. Even if it is all KINDS of scratchy. Get us a recording from your cell phone, a recording on the most basic of hardware, a video at practice or at a show. We want to find you. We want to support you. We want to make you the next name-of-the-game in our region and beyond. Let's make music together.
Enter your name, email address, phone number, and where to find your material and we may get back to you. If we do...that is great thing #1!
