A few testimonials:
Richie Parsons of Unnatural Axe, Tomato Monkey, The Chord Rockers, … :
“Tom knows music and knows his gear. I have recorded demos and tracks for albums at his place and the experience each and every time was productive, professional and rewarding. “
Charlie Infection From Psycho:
“It was such a great time to work with Tom. He knew exactly what sound we wanted to get and he delivered it fully !! Tom is very easy to work with and really knows the ins and outs of his studio. I highly recommend him !!”
Ben Deily from Lemonheads, Varsity Drag:
“I’ve worked with Tom as a recording engineer (both in the studio, and live), producer, and creative partner on and off for *COUGH* the better part of 30 years, now. Three different bands. At least six different records. And through it all, Tom’s been an irreplaceable asset to capturing both the sounds AND the spirit that I’ve been looking for. It’s not just his depth of knowledge (as you see him whip out a ruler to measure an amp-cone-to-mic distance-ratio of some kind that might as well be nuclear physics to me) and his ease with the gear and the software alike: it’s the attitude with which he approaches musicians, and the entire process. As a musician himself from way back, Tom understands not only the way we think, but the conditions we need–or don’t need–to get sh*t done. It’s always a pleasure to see his irrepressible smile, hear his reassuring voice when tempers flare or patience wears thin …or to hear what he’s cooked up when, after futzing for a while with a rack of outboard gizmos, he puts you in the engineer’s chair in front of the board and says “OK: listen to this.” Because you just KNOW it’s going to be something cool. I don’t know what I would have done without Tom all these years. He engineered the first song I ever had on MTV. He oversaw the most recent full-length album I did, of which I am most proud. (He’s done a ton of classic Boston records & bands he’ll probably be too modest to tell you about, too, so ask him.) He’ll do great sh*t for you, too”.
Doug MacDonald from Doug MacDonald Band, Tidal Wave … :
“I have recorded in many studios and worked with many engineers Tom Hamilton is the best engineer I work with. I have recorded 5 CDs/ albums with Tom he is a great person to work with. He has a great ear and he also comes up with great ideas. I have never been disappointed with any of the recordings that have come out of his studio. The studio comes with high tech equipment and vintage equipment so you get the best of both worlds. Hope to work with Tom again in the future”.
Carolina Kehoe – Carolina’s War, Sleepless Elite:
“Our band recorded our first EP with Tom. We were not sure what we were getting ourselves into but he was integral in getting us organized and recorded. Working with him is an absolute delight. His extensive knowledge of his equipment and Pro Tools keeps the recording process running smoothly. The environment is creative and casual without losing its professionalism. We would definitely record with him again”.
