“Working here is always a pleasure and the studio delivers the big drum sound we all want!”

-Jeff Schroeder, Smashing Pumpkins

“Vintage mics, pre-amps, guitar amps, drums + full live band tracking capability and a state of the art and always up to date HD Pro Tools rig. The live room pumps out amazing drum tones and the vibe is always cool. It’s the first place that comes to mind as a recommendation for recording sweet sounds.”

-Dizzy Reed, Guns N Roses – The Psychedelic Furs

“I highly recommend this place without hesitation and with great enthusiasm!”

“Skylab has by far proven itself to be a place above all the rest where I can be extremely creative and technical at the same time. Tommy’s knowledge and love of music makes the recording process a true pleasure.”

-Ian Scheller, Recording Artist

“Tommy is a true professional, his knowledge and experience really helped me get the best results. He understands the process and his vibe is always positive. I would recommend Skylab to any artist seeking professional results. Tommy is one of the fastest, highly focussed producer/engineers I’ve come across.”

-Tim Culling, Songwriter

“Skylab Studio was an unreal experience. I was truly impressed with Tommy’s feedback on our tracks. His commitment and insight was integral in helping my band record our full length album. The best part of the experience was the vibe of his studio – very comfortable, a no pressure setting yet with a full fledged commitment to getting the best performance and sound out of you as possible. His drum sounds are better than anywhere else I’ve ever recorded!”

-Nick Holt, Drummer

“Tommy has a tremendous understanding of the importance of creating a great creative atmosphere. We recorded an album’s worth of songs, tracking percussion, flute and tenor sax tracks with veteran studio musicians like Robert Kyle whose previous work includes Stevie Wonder, Linda Ronstadt, Della Reese and Kenny Loggins. Tommy integrated additional tenor sax tracks which were recorded remotely by Grammy Award winning horn arranger, Scott Martin (Poncho Sanchez, Ray Charles, James Moody, Tito Puente and many others). Tommy handled every task in an exemplary professional manner with an acute sensitivity to my creative vision.”

-Bob Schutz, Songwriter

“I had a great experience recording at Skylab Studio. Tommy was very cooperative with me and allowed me to do what I needed to do according to my plans for recording. He had no ego and provided an excellent service. His mastery of his own studio allowed me to concentrate on directing the project to get the results I was looking for. His finely tuned knowledge of the production process is reflected in each song.”

-Sean “P” Loves, Manager/Producer

“I’ve worked with several clients at Skylab Studio. Tommy has a strong work ethic, persistence, and intellectual integrity. He has become the most valuable member of my studio team and sets the standard for other studios. I recommend Skylab Studio for any musical project with absolute confidence.”

-Mike Towns, Producer

“Being a fan of Tommy’s band, Sky Parade, I was thrilled when the company I work for, Emoto Music, began working with him. Tommy has worked on many major commercial campaigns and is able to adjust to any style while still keeping his signature sound. I always look forward to working with him because I know he can handle any deadline, takes good direction and is open to new ideas. I look forward to continuing working with Tommy and I highly recommend him for any project that requires a talented producer & composer.”

-Lindsay Froemke, Emoto Music

“I had the best recording session of my life yesterday. It was what you dream about as a musician…get the live sounds working together and then just one or two takes per track! Never had all the pieces come together like this before…the songs, the band, the gear, the engineer…so cool. Thanks Tommy Dietrick!”

-Joe Sax, singer/songwriter

“Working with Tommy at Skylab Studio was a great experience. It was important for me that the quality of sound was up to industry standards and my expectations were far exceeded. Not only did Tommy help with the creative aspects of recording, he really understands the recording process and is able to work quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend working here.”

-Bradley Fitch Songwriter (Top 75 American Idol Finalist)

“This guy is booked all the time which I think says a lot about Skylab. I started coming to him in 2007 and I’ve continued to track here for years because of how dedicated Tommy is to making my music come alive. Front end Analog, tube, vintage, HD – he has it all here and the sound is always huge.”

-Aliso Black, Hip Hop Artist

“Tommy Dietrick is a consummate professional with years of experience. Whether you’re a band, a singer, or an actor doing voiceovers, he couldn’t be more accommodating in the way he adapts to the needs of your project and the demands of the moment. He gets my highest recommendation!”

-Jeff Cottrone, Television Producer
