"Brad is a true professional in every sense of the word. He's patient, easy to work with, infuses good ideas, and doesn't miss a detail. We worked together to record and produce my first audio book for Living in Your Top 1% and it was an amazing experience. I'm really pleased with the final product and would highly recommend Brad for any project." - Alissa Finerman (Business/Life Coach, author of Living in Your Top 1%)

The Sunflowers have recorded two CDs with Brad Swanson at SwanSound, and we’re about to start recording our third. Why?

1) Brad Swanson commits to our projects as if they were his own;

2) With four decades of professional experience, Brad Swanson is not only a first-rate recording engineer, but a first-rate session musician. When it comes time to lay down the drums or percussion, within minutes you've got a great sounding track, without paying cartage fees, and the session rates you'd expect to pay musicians with Brad's skills;

3) The environment at SwanSound is comfortable, creative and fun;

4) Brad Swanson is humble, generous and honest to a fault. We just like hanging out with him!

My name is Artis Phillips Jr. I worked at Motown under Berry Gordy, Warner Music and, Screen Gems. I began working with Brad Swanson at SwanSound Music a few years ago. He is a true pro at his craft and if I am in the LA area Brad is always my first choice! I cut Freda Payne's He Gained The World But Lost His soul at SwanSound. - Artis Phillips Jr (producer/songwriter)

"I had an awesome experience in the studio with Brad. He's a great creative collaborator, offering lots of tasty ideas in a non-judgemental way. I love his musical taste and dedication to keeping the soul in the track. I look forward to working with Brad on many more tracks." - Justin Souter (singer/songwriter, producer)

"SwanSound Music is my go-to studio for everything from rough demos to radio-ready recordings. Brad Swanson is a talented professional who shares his deep expertise and his tremendous heart. Honestly, if given a choice, I will always record at SwanSound Music." - Mikki Brisk (singer/songwriter/recording artist)

“Best environment I’ve ever experienced in a recording situation. Did my last two albums at SwanSound with Brad at the board, including my latest which is holding at #1 as I write this. Some engineers have golden ears – but they take forever to get things done. I trust Brad implicitly. Brad Swanson is as professional, affordable and efficient as they come. He’s an indispensable part of my production team – plus, he’s a world-class drummer/percussionist. If he agrees to take you and your project on, consider yourself extremely lucky.”

"Although SwanSound is a professional recording studio, Brad Swanson has created an environment that is relaxed, easy, comfortable and fun.  He is not only a fantastic musician and engineer but an awesome guy.  You will not be disappointed.  SwanSound rocks!" - Heather Stewart (singer/songwriter/recording artist)

"Working with Brad at SwanSound Music has been so great…he is so easy and enjoyable to work with, while being quick and efficient with the technical aspect of it all.  And he is also a great mixer…he’s made the end product of some of my songs turn out so much better than I ever expected! I can’t say enough about how thankful I am to have found his studio and benefit from his expertise!" - Randi Soyland (singer/songwriter/recording artist)
