Here at EMG Labs, we understand the significance of your passion.  You want to share that passion in a meaningful, permanent way: as a recorded sound project.

Concerned about the cost ?   We price each project as just that – a project.

We don’t want an hourly fee hanging over your head as you record – so instead we consult with you before any recording and give you an all-inclusive, affordable price so your mind can move on to more creative endeavors!

The Studio

EMG Labs has a large Main Room for recording drums and ensembles. We also have a 36 sq ft floating Isolation Booth for vocals, acoustic, and string instruments. In addition, we have a mic’d reverb chamber equipped for Drums or Guitar Cabinets, along with a separate Vocal Performance Reverb Chamber. We can handle any recording you want to create !

Equipped with the tools needed to channel the gods, EMG Laboratories is a highly functional creative workspace for recording, rehearsing, and pre-production. We have recorded full bands of many genres, singer-songwriters, and corporate spoken word – we can do it ALL !


EMG Labs has recorded albums with Woodland Remedy (feat. Edward David Anderson), Highway J, Old Smoke, Mother Mercy, Catching Hickory, The Robber Barons, Red Arrows, Robert Brown Band, Chance & The Arrow, Daniel Watkins, David Berchtold, Green Laser, and more !
