A funny thing happened to me on the way to the studio. I bumped into an old friend (Iet’s call him Ken) who used to work for me years ago. Ken had been a great assistant engineer who had moved to the West Coast to follow his true dream: to develop an unknown artist into...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING:
Arty, Just wanted to thank you for all of your hard work on the CD. I had to of course get away from it for a while, then listen to it again. It just sounds killer. You nailed it – just exactly what I wanted it to sound like and it gives me loads of ideas as to how to market it and the image(s) I want to use for its release. You really pulled out the best of the best in these songs, and I am deeply grateful.
Working with Skyelab was certainly a challenging and satisfying experience. I am from Mexico City and came to NYC expressly to work with Arty. His precise directions at the recording studio as well as his musical intuition made possible for us to record a totally professional song including background vocals in record time! His dedication to the work we were did together as well as his career counseling are just what I needed to have a solid basis to continue my musical project going forward. Thank you Skyelab for helping me create an amazingly sounding song!
I had a blast working with Skylab! The song came out hot, and I’ve been getting a lot of great feed back from the production. Arty Skye brought ideas to the music it didn’t have going into the process, but also made sure I stayed true to material. I am looking forward to working with them again, and I would recommend them to anyone.
Working with Arty has been a great experience. He takes my songs from basic chords with lyrics and transforms them into fantastic and exciting productions time and time again. As a songwriter with little technical expertise it’s great to be able to rely on Arty to take care of that whole production for me. He even plays some of the instruments on my demos himself. he’s unbelievable on the guitar! Not to mention how friendly and pleasent he is to work with.
I’ve know Arty for many years and recommended many people to him. They’ve all been very happy with his services. Arty’s personal consideration sets him apart from many others.
Recording at SkyeLab Sound Studios was a dream come true! As a singer/songwriter it was crucial that I found a music production team that would not only respect and embrace my creativity, but enhance it as well. Arty and his team did just that and more! I have a quality, state-of-the art, radio ready collection of songs that I shop around with pride. And as for the business side, Arty and the guys were jewels! Unfortunately there are a lot of shady people in the music business so finding a production team/studio can be intimidating, but let me just say that these guys are legit and on top of things. Thanks guys and I’ll see you at the top!
Arty was very helpful from beginning to end. He created two fantastic pop songs, tailored to my style and voice range, leaving me with a great demo to send to managers and labels. Thanks Arty!
Arty and his guys rock! They really know their stuff technically, but creatively they’re @#$% geniuses!
Recording at Skyelab studio made our trip such an unforgettable experience! Due to us living in the UK we thought it might be a problem to organize everything. But Arty was amazing he was in constant contact with us. Even before we came over to NY Arty was their to talk us through every step of the way. When being such a long way away we felt that the service we received couldn’t of been better. When over in NY he was so helpful and had so many ideas on how to create our own style with a more unique backing and great harmonies. We are so happy with the final production of the songs! He really did make the whole experience something we will never forget, and we feel so privileged to of worked with him. We just hope we will get the opportunity to work with such a talent man again! Thanks so much Arty!
As a singer/songwriter/pianist, when I walked into Skyelab, I had a lot of melodies, lyrics, and song ideas racing around in my head. I didn’t know where to start! Arty worked with me to help focus my ideas into a defined and unique ‘Maura’ sound. He encouraged me to be creative and push the envelope, but always helped me keep my focus. The writing and recording experience is so positive at Skyelab… it’s an atmosphere where you can just chill and perform and do what you love to do. Arty truly cared about the quality of my recordings, and took everything into account, from renting me a killer digital piano for the recording sessions, to giving me advice about my headshots. When I walked out of Skyelab, I had great radio-ready music, and great friends in Arty and all the guys at the studio.
Like an over done pie, a bad lead will ruin the party. Master chef Skye conducts cooking class for your vocal tracks. New York pizza sucks! It’s hardly ever fresh, the dough is almost always overcooked, the sauce is too sweet and there’s usually too little, which results in a bad sauce to cheese ratio,...

Both were given the chance to place their songs in a feature film, pro riding they could make certain changes required by the film...
The Art of Extreme Bass
SOMETIMES, YOU GOTTA BREAK THE RULES I was diving 110 feet down in cold, dark water off the New Jersey coast when this 3-pound lobster and I had a dis agreement. I wanted to take him home to see my nice kitchen, and he wanted to stay under his big rock and keep my...
No Harmony No Peace: Check Your Ego At The Door
Communication: the fundamental principle of a civilized society. But when it breaks down, it can lead to disaster. Since music is a language unto itself, it’s possible to communicate brilliantly on a musical level while despising the people with whom you’re making the music. Look at the Beatles. As incredible as their music was, a...
You Can`t Be Naive In The Music Business, They`ll Eat You Alive
If it hasn’t happened yet, sooner or later a friend of a friend of an acquaintance of your cousin will need to use your studio and offer to pay. Sounds good, right? But despite good references, not everyone is a good client. So how do you avoid being ripped off? There are many methods that...
Simon Says: Potential Idol Reality check
I love the show American Idol. It’s like a circus, complete with clowns and balloons and the evil Simon Sinister (boo, hiss). My favorite part is when the show goes from own to town auditioning the locals. It’s amazing to see the wide range of talent out there. You have some extremely talented singers with...
How Do I Get a Record Deal?
So every musician asks, How Do I Get A Record Deal? For the singer, band or musician looking to have an illustrious career in the music industry, to get a record deal or record contract often seems like the best way to go. While there is no absolute guarantee of getting a record deal by...
The Key To Communication Sounds Great -Now Change It
It always amazes me when clients give me examples of music that they like, but that have nothing to do with what they want. Years ago, a Japanese record company asked me to produce a single for one of their artists, which was also to be used for a commercial in Japan. The song they...
Session Secrets:Forward Thinking Backward Reverb
A classic trick that has been used countless times by artists such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, and many more, is also often used in scary movies, when somebody is talking with spirits or when the sound designer needs to create a voice that sounds “possessed.” Reverb is recorded so that it swells...
