"From start to finish, my whole experience recording at Greenbriar Studio was extraordinary. Jay's ability to capture who I am as an artist was perfect and it made working with him so effortless and fun. He invested in my music instead of just recording me, and it brought a new energy to my music. It was a pleasure and a privilege to work with Jay... I'm sure it won't be the last."
"...Jay is such a down to earth guy who just happens to be one of the most talented people you will meet. He is not only a great sound engineer (which would be enough), but he is also an incredible musician. He helped creatively with so many facets of the song I was recording, including writing parts on piano and cello that simply took the song to a higher level than I thought it could go. The studio itself is warm and inviting and the perfect atmosphere for creativity to thrive. Trust me, once you get in there and start working you will not want to leave. I've told a lot of friends and musicians about Greenbriar. If you are looking for a top-notch studio and a sound engineer that knows how to run it, do yourself a favor and check it out. You will enjoy the process and you'll love the end result."
"Working with Jay at Greenbriar Studio was such a fun experience. Everything was done very professionally and with an outstanding attitude. If I needed ideas for a certain part of a song, Jay was ready to give creative input and he was also supportive of the things that I was passionate about keeping a certain way. The fact that Jay can step in with so much musical education and talent is both extremely helpful and impressive. I deeply appreciate the light-hearted, fun atmosphere mixed with the incredible diligence that was put into our project by Greenbriar Studio and I would recommend them to anyone."

"I've worked with Jay at Greenbriar Studio many times now, and have never been disappointed. He is always very patient and thorough with his work, and his final products on my songs have always been great. If you are struggling figuring out how you want your song to sound, Jay can give you great suggestions, but also always makes sure the song sounds how you want it to. As someone who has recorded in Nashville, I can honestly say the quality I get at Greenbriar Studio is just as good if not better than Nashville recordings..."
"...Jay immediately made me feel comfortable and his professionalism calmed my nerves and put me at ease. He is certainly great at all the technical aspects of recording, but he is also very musically gifted. Jay ended up playing a few different instruments, which added a whole new dimension to my song. His cello was my favorite! Altogether, my first recording experience was phenomenal, and I highly recommend Jay! I look forward to working on another project with Jay again soon."
"Working with Jay at Greenbriar Studio was the smoothest recording process EVER. Since Jay is a trained musician himself, there was no second-guessing his understanding of what we wanted and needed. He also has a great ability to give you producer's advice as well if you want it! With other studio engineers in the past that I had experienced there were screwy edits, added nonsense, and misunderstood end goals. Not with Jay! He took our vision and put it in audio format in such a way that I didn't have to feel like I was settling, but that I was getting top-of-the-line quality from pre to post. It was a finished product I was proud to show others. I highly recommend Jay and Greenbriar Studio!"
"...Jay does a fantastic job balancing the necessary levels of patience, and persistence that are required to bring out your best while recording... He has a vast understanding of music theory which came in particularly handy anytime I needed a second set of ears while working through sections with poly-rhythms or more commonly a variety of triplet patterns that may not line up exactly in a computer program--something I've had issues with in the past working in many other studios. He also knows how to get you sounding like the bands you want to sound like, he knows what to tweak to get your tones and timbres where you want them without having to waste your valuable studio time guessing and experimenting, and he has a great ear for pitch which again will save time and ultimately make for a better final product. I couldn't recommend Jay any more, and I hope to work with him for many years to come."
