I have been recording songs at Seattle Houseboat Studio since 2018. I've gotten great results working with Dennis Tevlin. SHS has a great atmosphere for creating music, the equipment is top notch and Dennis has good engineering and producing experience.

Dennis was excellent to work with, he has great energy, style, and creativity. He made my song better, which is much appreciated. I'm happy with the entire recording process and look forward to working with him again.
