2014.02.10 // Francis (...is a band)

Impromptu recording sessions with touring bands are all the rage right now. Francis, a pop punk band from Pennsylvania, crashed on the Clarity couches after their show on Saturday night, and Sunday decided they wanted to record a couple tracks! One day later, tracks are ready to rock. Look for a new sample by the end of the week!

City Reef and Into the Lion's Den are headed this way next week, and with The Calefaction and Porch Lights headed in the end of the month, it's getting pretty damn busy!

Need something tracked? Hit us up and book some time for next month!

2014.01.15 // New Sample: City Reef

Earlier this month, City Reef came through the studio for a couple songs. Just added their single to our playlist! Head on over to the Samples section and check it out!

City Reef is heading back this way in February for another three songs, but we're pretty open for the rest of the month. Book some time with us and come make some noise. You know you want to!

2014.01.02 // Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2014, friends! It's going to be a wild ride.

Things are heating up in January and February with Everybody Knows wrapping up their debut full-length, The Calefaction starting pre-production on their new release, and City Reef coming back for another three songs at the end of the month!

In February, we'll be joined by The New Addiction for a handful of newies, and whatever else the months brings us!

Stay tuned for more goodies, and while you're here, book some time and let's make some beautiful noise!

2013.12.25 // Merry Christmas from Clarity!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from your favorite local studio! We hope they've been as generous to you as they have to us, and that you're off eating a ton of food with family and friends somewhere!

2013.12.12 // House of Blues

The new Everybody Knows album is coming along nicely! Drums, bass, rhythm guitars, and most of leads are done. Over-dubbing and atmospheric stuff coming up! Speaking of EK, they'll be playing the 5th Avenue Stage at House of Blues this weekend! If you're free on Sunday evening, stop by and give them some love!

Next weekend, I dive into the world of reggae with City Reef tracking two new singles at Clarity. Excited to take on a new genre!

After City Reef, I'll be taking a break for the holidays from December 23rd - January 3rd. If you'd like to get into the studi0 after that, please contact me and set something up! Schedule is wide open for January! :)

2013.12.02 // Cherry Moonshine

Wrapped up the final touches on the new Lexington Field single this weekend! Always fun throwing together some good ol' fashioned folk rock and bluegrass harmonies. Check it out on their page!

2013.11.28 // Happy Thanksgiving!

It's been a great year here, and it only gets better from this point on! More recording and production projects coming up! Check back for updated availability and new music soon!

2013.11.15 // Music All Weekend

Things are picking up around the holidays. Embarking on a 12-song full length album with Everybody Knows today, and Lexington Field will be joining me again this weekend and next week to track some new folk jams!

Holiday schedules can be crazy, but we've got a couple weeks open before the new year! Be sure to get in touch if you've got music to be made!

Reviews of Our Work
"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!"

"Sean is the best guy in San Diego to work with. Over the past five years or so i've gotten to work with some awesome producers and engineers around San Diego and LA, and at the end of the day, my experience at Clarity has trumped all other experiences. Sean has such a strong understand of music and theory that no matter what your genre is, Sean will know how to work with you and help take your songs to the next level. Over the last two months my band has been recording a full-length at Clarity and thanks to our producer/engineer, I'm confident it will be our strongest release!"
