We have been operating on Hawai’i Island for almost 10 years.  The studio is owned and operated by Michael Surprenant, who spent many years producing and playing on records in New York City before finding his home in Hawai’i. Michael graduated from Berklee College of Music and has extensive experience in all facets of producing music.  Virtually every album Michael has produced in Hawai'i has either won or been nominated for Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards, including Engineer of the Year, Contemporary Acoustic Album of the Year and Jazz Album of the Year.
