"I recorded an acoustic demo at Shireshead Studio this week and I could not be happier with the result. My tracks sound awesome and totally reflect the distinct line rocking sound that I wanted to capture on the demo. Also, the staff were friendly and the engineer was professional and easy going and I felt completely relaxed and at home. I would recommend this studio to anyone who wants to produce a professional recording demo and enjoy the experience of making it!"
