Having owned and operated several studios over the years, Andrew Smith has been producing and engineering exceptional albums since the late 90's.

As musicians, we understand the integral need to acknowledge and respect the  songwriters and instrumentalists who have come before us, while allowing personal experience and artistic collaboration to inform the creative process. As producers and engineers, we strive to celebrate the sounds of our collective musical history within the application of a modern recording environment. At Lake Studios, a marriage of analog and digital gear allows us to appreciate the "vibe" and "warmth" that vintage gear is known for while enjoying the immense flexibility of Pro Tools HD.
