"Sean does great things! He was very helpful in the studio. My band traveled from Arizona to record with him. He was super flexible with his schedule and we were able to record everything in a few weekend trips! Easy to work with, very laid back atmosphere, and he will help you capture the sound you are looking for! Thank you again, Sean!"

"Nothing short of amazing! Sean at Clarity Recordings worked tirelessly to provide me with tracks that not only exceeded my expectations, but helped me to find and fully realize the sound I was going for. I live 100 miles away from the studio and would drive double that knowing what Clarity Recordings produces!"

"Sean at Clarity produced a song for our band. It came out just how I envisioned, and then some. We got some killer drums tones and guitar sounds, and there was a plethora of gear to choose from! Vocals turned out amazing. Sean was super easy going and patient to work with, and he has great ideas if you’re stumped on a part or a lyric. Very reasonably priced too! Thanks!"

"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?"

"When we needed a new mix and master of our song for an upcoming lyric video, we chose Sean at Clarity Recordings - and we're so glad we did!! He has such a great ear for the minute details, he listened to our feedback, and translated it into a final version we were proud to share (and with a faster-than-expected turnaround). We would recommend him to anyone who wants a professional boost to their quality of sound! Thanks, Sean!!"

"Sean helped me with releasing my first full length album. We did everything from production, post production and even album art and CD album design. As someone that grew up with similar music interests, it made working with him so much easier and was pretty much on the same page with what I had envisioned with my music. Thanks so much for all the help!"

"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!"

"Sean is an amazing engineer! Our recordings from Clarity are very high quality. The first song we released has already had some radio play. He has a great ear, high quality gear, lots of attention to detail and really knows his stuff. Sean has a positive attitude which helps keep the vibes inspiring. We will definitely continue to record at Clarity Recordings!"

"Recording with Sean at Clarity Recordings was one of the best experiences in the studio I've had in my 20 year career in music and recording arts. He goes above and beyond to achieve what the client is looking for, sonically speaking, in a comfortable setting that doesn't make you feel like you're counting down the hours you have left in the budget. The results speak for themselves."

"I started working with Sean due to a referral, I guess everyone can say we are picky on who we work with, especially if it's making your music come together. Soon I realized that he was on top of his work and consistent, his feedback was neutral and without holding back in a very positive constructive perspective. We will return to his studio and recommend it to anyone and everyone to get that great sound. We did not get rushed but he was down to business and we also felt very comfortable and productive with him and his approach. We will come back and continue working with Sean and Clarity Recordings!"
