Ever notice that recording studios can be mean? Have you called to ask for information only to be treated like you don't know what you're doing, or worse - laughed at?  Me too!  So, now that I'm operating a recording studio, my goal is to make you and your music sound the best that it can.  It's important to you, so it's important to me.  Whether demo to full production - a strategy can be designed to record, produce, and/or mix and master your project.  To get started, your first step is to review the FAQ page.

Shawn Thomas is a contemporary Christian singer/songwriter who began his production and recording training in 1990 under Jeff Peters of Chateau Productions (Dallas/LA), and later graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a BA in Music Industry and Recording Industry Management.  He has been a voting member of the Grammy National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, and is a writer/publisher member of ASCAP and CCLI.  Shawn is a Pride in the Arts Awards recipient for Producer of the Year.

audio samples and references

Example of Full Production song from scratch: Canaan Band - a vocal trio and several piece band. The song is one of their originals recorded and mixed from scratch at STS.

"We recorded our 3rd CD with Shawn, and we were amazed at the technoloy, expertise and ease of working with him. This cd project was a huge success and we will continue to not only work with Shawn, but send fellow artists to him for their projects."  -- Canaan Band

Example of Cut/Edit/Splice for on-stage production: FAME Dance Studios - regular client for cuts, edits, and medley mixes for performances. This is a competition mix the studio owner choreographed to a "Spiderman" theme.

"If you are in need of editing, producing music, or recording, Shawn Thomas is the ONLY person to use. I have used Shawn's services for the past 8 years. He is AMAZING! I have been teaching dance for 25 years and have never found anyone who has the talent he possesses. I simply email him the tracks and let him do the rest, and I have to say, I have never been disappointed. He always has everything done perfectly and on time." -- Amber Prosnick, Owner/Director FAME, Inc.

Example of a Mix from tracks recorded at another studio: Carlos Ortiz - singer/songwriter.  Carlos plays multiple instruments and sings all his vocal parts.  He recorded this song on his own equipment and sent it to STS for mixing.

"I highly recommend Shawn Thomas for your next project. He mixed my songs in such a way that brought them to life!" -- Carlos Ortiz Music Ministry

Example of a Mastered Song originally recorded and mixed at another studio: Susie Brenner - singer/songwriter. Susie has used STS for mastering services on her last two CD/albums. Both projects were produced out-of-state, and then files were sent to STS for final mastering before duplication.

"Shawn has done my last two CDs and the quality of mastering is excellent! He's talented and he really is who he says he is." -- Susie Brenner, Brenner-Beckstead Ministries
