2016.05.20 // Packed House

A quick update to let everyone know that the availability of Clarity will be tighter than ever this Summer. I'll be headed out on the road playing bass for the boys in Short Stories for a couple weeks each month through August!

Nevertheless, I want to record your music. I'll be working on some new music from Short Stories in June, and a band called Jovias is headed in for a few days in July to put together an EP! Time to get yourself and your music on the calendar next. Get in touch to schedule it.

2016.04.03 // Design Vibes

Our look is ever-evolving, but we're proud to say that it's more comfortable than ever at Clarity. Lighting vibes, textures, and even more so, the sounds. Our studio is sounding better than ever and it's all thanks to the people that come here to record to give us the ability to hone our craft. Thank you for that!

Have you not recorded at Clarity yet? Tell us how to change that and book something!

2016.02.18 // Mass Production

Well, not quite, but it's busier than ever at Clarity and the studio is growing. Design changes to our humble home have opened up more space and more possibilities. Simply put, we're excited!

Speaking of production, we're wrapping up production with Michael Timog and Short Stories in the next couple weeks, so look for those releases out sometime in the coming months!

If you're looking to record something, we're all ears. Contact us and let's make it happen.

2016.01.20 // Nothing Sacred

Just posted a new sample from the boys in Nothing Sacred. Great track taken from their EP that's due out in March! More samples on the way from Short Stories and Michael Timog next month! Keep your eyes and ears open! :)

2016.01.10 // Whoa! It's 2016!

Where did 2015 go?!

Anyway, Happy New Year, friends. Things are keep consistent at Clarity, and we're in the midst of a ton of cosmetic and acoustic upgrades to the entire studio. The control room is soon to be unrecognizable, and the live room is already looking amazing. We've got weekdays both this month and next fairly wide open, so hit us up to book some time and give the new preamps some much needed action!

Also, to all of my industry friends, I'll be up at NAMM from the 21st-23rd, and I'd love to see ya! Get in touch and let's nerd out on some fresh new gear!

2015.12.19 // Merry Christmas!

Quick update to say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone out there in the internet world that happens to find my humble little studio. Things are busy and LOUD here, and the new releases I'm working on are turning out awesome. I can't wait for the new year to get some new samples up on the web, and new friends into the studio! Hope you're having a killer December!

2015.11.05 // Holiday Madness

The end of the year is always an interesting time, and this year is shaping up to be pretty crazy. This month, we've got a couple projects kicking off with The Reign of Madmen and Dylan Razwick, and a fresh new EP from local alt-punkers Short Stories.

We'll be launching all of these projects with a fresh new set of preamps and converters from Audient and Burr-Brown. Quality is getting upped on a weekly basis here, so book some time and help us continue to improve this studio for everyone in San Diego! :)

Most every weekend is booked for the coming two months, but we're pretty open during the week from 11-7 daily! Hit us up and get your music recorded!

2015.10.05 // Spooky Schedule

In September, we launched a TON of package deals offered via GoFundMe to raise money for acoustic and functional upgrades to our control room, and to build an isolated vocal and guitar booth. If you're looking for an insane deal on recording, definitely head over to our GoFundMe page and take a look at what we're offering. We even threw in some design packages!

This month we'll be wrapping up a couple of releases with Michael Timog and Nothing Sacred, and starting vocal production with the new Everybody Knows album!

We're pretty open at the end of the month, but November is filling up quick! Hit us up fast to get in on the action.

Reviews of Our Work
"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!"

"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!"
