Where did you record?/Who did you work with?/How was the experience? Beyond Audio Recording in West Bend, WI. The awesome recording and sound engineering powerhouse Jason Otto. It could not have been smoother, more fun and blew my expectations in every single way through the whole process – the album was literally born, created, and brought to life in and out of Beyond Audio Recording and me locked at home in my room for about a solid year, but the results still astound me and I thoroughly got the true studio experience the whole time.
