And his talent as a musician as well as a sound engineer helped get the best work out of me. I highly recommend him for any kind of recording needs: solo voice, instruments, voice over… I even tap danced in the studio! He does it all, and makes me want to come back and do more!”

“Michael Walsh and The Smooth Spot are THE place to record a demo! I refer all of our singers at New York Vocal Coaching to Michael and the Smooth Spot. Nowhere in New York will you find such a high quality service for such an amazing value. Michael is extremely skilled as a recording engineer and can help singers and performers create a professional recording for a fraction of the cost that they will find elsewhere. Not only this, but he is a great guy who is funny and puts people at ease. He has a truly delightful energy and spirit about him that allows artists to do their best work. Also, he is an experienced musician, performer, and coach as well, which allow him to relate to the artists that he works with. Yet, he is very respectful of the creative process and never interferes creativity, but rather facilitates a positive result from artists that record at The Smooth Spot. The Smooth Spot has all the latest and greatest technology for making a professional recording and, more importantly, Michael is skillful and innovative with this technology to give artists wonderful results. I will continue to work with Michael Walsh and The Smooth Spot in the future, as he has created a top-level recording facility that truly is the best kept secret in all ofManhattan!”
