2018.05.19 // Weekends Forever

Hey! Are you interested in recording your next release with Clarity in the next few months? Do you NEED a weekend? You likely want to book with us a few months in advance as we are currently booked out for all but two weekends until August! They're definitely at a premium this year! That said, we've got plenty of weekdays available in June and half of July, but they're filling up quick! Contact us as soon as you're ready to record and let's get that scheduled!

This month we wrapped up new music with Pat Hilton, Quel Bordel, Toylit, and Great Northern, and we're starting on new releases with Imagery Machine and Wes Maharas!

While we're at it, we want to congratulate Malison on their recent signing with Combat Records! We had a blast tracking their drums for the full-length that is soon to be released on their new label! High five, boys. :)

Staying busy and staying loud. Let's make some noise together soon!

2018.04.10 // Jam City

It's April and we're still crazy busy! It's been a non-stop adventure all year long, and we wouldn't trade it for the world.

This month we kicked off two new EPs, one of which will remain anonymous for the time being, and a soul-pop record with James Bohardt. We're also wrapping up EPs with Quel Bordel, Great Northern, and Toylit, and putting the finishing touches on Pat Hilton's long-awaited debut full-length.

Are we busy? You bet. We've still got a handful of weekdays open at the end of the month, and May is currently wide open, though we're waiting on several projects to confirm dates.

Need some recording time? BOOK NOW. Time fills up lightning quick these days, and if you need weekends, book them the second you see something that you want open. We cannot guarantee ANYTHING will remain open this year. It's been that insane, and we love it! :)

2018.03.01 // Never Ender...

...is what our current workflow should be called. We're entering our seventh straight month with less than 20% availability going into the month. This kind of growth prompts a very big thank you! We're super excited and hope to continue being trusted with your sounds.

This month we continue works on projects with Pat Hilton, From Chaos and Heaven, Aerith, and Stereo Summer, and we kick off brand new projects with Quel Bordel, Great Northern, and Toylit.

Want to be a part of the action? Feel like creating something? We've got six days open and we want you to fill them. Email us today and let's make some music. :)

2018.01.02 // Happy New Year, internets!

2018 is finally upon us! 2017 was BY FAR our most successful year, and our schedule remains non-stop through the first three months of this brand new year. We are extremely grateful and thankful that so many of you have trusted us with your sounds and stories. Let's keep the flow going!

We've updated our services page with a few new services that we're officially offering. (They were always available, but not advertised for some reason. Problem solved!) We've also updated our rates to reflect the amount of time and passion we put into every project. We've had such overwhelming demand that we want to ensure we're getting paid well enough to account for the lack of sleep we get. (Wink.) The new prices go into effect February 1st, and any artist / project that puts down a 50% deposit towards their next package will get locked in for the current rates. Book that next project!

Back in September, we relayed that we'd grabbed a pair of new Roland synths for in-house production. Well, as things go at Clarity, we've managed to pick up another three synthesizers since then. The Korg Minilogue, a beastly analog-style synth capable of everything from Moog to Monomachine sounds, the AKAI Timbre Wolf, a tiny side synth that does extremely well with bass and sub-tones, and last-but-certainly-not-least, the Studiologic Sledge 2.0 - a 61-key powerhouse that has become an industry staple and somehow snuck by us until November - this thing is INCREDIBLE. Use them on your next project to add that depth you've been looking for, or gloss up your already killer track.

We've got a bit of time available in February, and we're about half booked for March. Get in touch and let's get you in here to record!

2017.12.24 // Merry Christmas: Have Some New Samples!

Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and all that fun stuff!

We've been SLAMMED with work, but that's a good thing! We've got exactly half a dozen free days left in January, so if you're in need, check the calendar to the right and let's party!

In the customary giving sense of the holidays, we've also added five brand new songs to the playlist in our samples section. Give them a listen and contact us so we can make your new songs come to life in the same way! <3

All in all, we're extremely excited for 2018. Bring on the New Year!

2017.12.01 // Extended Specials

We still have a handful of openings this month, and a couple weeks free in January! We want to fill those slots, so we've extended our specials from the previous post through December 15th! You can book for any time in the future, but all payments or deposits must be in by then! Let's make some noise, friends. :)

2017.10.31 // Spooky Specials (For the Holidays!)

Happy Halloween, internets!

Clarity is gearing up for a solid holiday season! We've got a few openings in both November and December, and we'd love to fill them with new artists looking to take their sound to the next level. To help you get in the musical spirit, we're bringing back our (spooky) Holiday Specials!

• Track two full-band, full-production recordings for $400. Includes full tracking, track and vocal production, mix and master! Price valid if paid in full by December 5th!

• Track a five-song EP for $1000! Includes full tracking and production input, complete vocal production, full mix and master for all five songs! Price valid if a 50% deposit is made before December 5th!

These are excellent deals on our normal rates, and even more so when compared to other studios! Let us make your music sound polished and professional for a fraction of the price! Contact us and book some time today!

Reviews of Our Work
"I've used Sean to master my tracks. He's a true professional, does fantastic work, and is a great guy. What more could you ask out of an engineer?"
Weston Gardner

"I first contacted Sean at Clarity Recordings for artwork design for some shirts. The work was very inexpensive and high quality. I enjoyed working with Sean so much that I decided to give Clarity Recordings a try for some recordings. Long story short, the work was detailed, fast and very inexpensive. You will pay WAY more at big name studios for the same work Sean will do. Sean really knows his way around his recording software and has an amazing ear. He is very producer oriented and can really help you out with ideas if you're a younger band looking for some direction. 5 stars for sure!"
