Reviews

Love this man, Jermaine is truly the best at what he does not only at his job but also communicating with people. He’s able to bring ideas to life and just a overall pleasing person to be around. He gives you the best advice on your music and makes you laugh at the same time! I highly recommend Jermaine/Studio Circle Recordings for any Engineer or Productions needs!

Tanner Feldman

Jermaine Hamilton has created an innovative space for virtually any musical/recording concept and genre. He’s an observant, creative engineer and producer. He’s an enjoyable guy to work in the studio with, and has good insights. Its hard to ask for more! That being said, he seems to be able to sense when to take a more hands on producer approach or lay back and facilitate. Often that can vary from day to day. Intuition is hard to come by and pretty damn necessary in this industry.

Leon Rosen

I highly recommend studio circle recordings for your next project. The equipment is state-of-the-art and there are multiple studios to choose from to accommodate large groups or solo artists.  Their hourly rate is very reasonable and their main focus is doing the best job they can for the musician and his music. I will be using them to record my upcoming CD this summer.

Michael Kaplan

I’ve been recording voice over work for EdTech and publishing companies at Studio Circle for a couple years now and have always had the best experience. I’ve worked with Forrest, one of the co-owners, each time and he is always professional, punctual and great to work with. Our clients are always pleased with the work and come back for more so I’m looking forward to working with Jermaine for many years to come!

Gabriel Galdamez

Jermaine is the best audio engineer out there! At Studio Circle Jermaine helped me to record my first cover song with really high-quality audio. I was so impressed! The facilities are spacious and nice. Jermaine can help create quick ideas on the fly and also collaborate with ease. Overall, very impressed!

Emilio Cordova

I’ve never experienced a receding team that pulled out all the stops to make sure we, as clients, knew what amazing technical options were available.  Thank you, team, for letting us try different options to make the final sound we were looking for so dang breathtaking!!

They made us feel like we were, by far, the most important customer they had ever had the pleasure to work with!  In the words of the famous Country Joe song, “You didn’t have to be nice (read; competent) we would have liked you anyway!”

Marshall Nielsen

Jermaine has done two very professional recordings for our daughters, both for solo piano. The entire process has gone so smoothly and the resulting recordings were both extremely high end. I highly recommend Studio Circle Recordings as the absolute best place around for recording of any kind.

Kari Rust

I’ve recorded both my hard rock and my acoustic projects with Forrest and I will never work with anybody else! Top of the line equipment and he knows the equipment well! Timely response on emails and worked well within our budget! I can say without hesitation, this was my best studio experience ever!
