''Gav is one of the best producers I've ever worked with, we have recorded many times with him and completed 3 EP's with our band Street Soldier.

Rain City is a great little studio that can get some seriously massive sounding results for your band or artist.

The Amount of work Gav puts into artists music during the recording sessions and particularly in the post production, mixing and mastering is ridiculously good value.

If you're into the heavier genre's then this should defiantly be your first choice but even if you are into Hip-Hop Funk, Soul, RnB, Jazz, Country or just about any other genre, have a look at Gav's portfolio to hear just how versatile this studio and producer is.

Would Recommend.

''i've used Rain City a couple of times, unbelievably good value for money, not just for the professionalism while recording, but the dedication, passion and hard work put in after to ensure the final product is at its best quality, it's easy to see that Gav wants the final product to be to a standard that would be hard to follow by anybody else, complete 10/10 from me''

''Don't even think of going anywhere else...

Incredible service, top studio, top production (the guy's got skills).

You really get a fantastic result by using Gavin, really good guy as well!

If i was able to rate higher than 5 then i would.

''Recorded 2 EPs here now, deathcore and metalcore. if you are looking for somewhere to record anything heavy without breaking the bank this is the place to do it. Gav is a top guy, can have a good laugh and wont stop till you have something everyone is happy with. Highly recommend''

''Fantastic service and brilliant value for money.

Gavs a Really laid back guy and truly listens to what you want out of the session.

Couldn't rate him any higher.

Main point is stop procrastinating and book some time with him!''

''I'm an Acoustic Singer-Songwriter who needed to get some original music recorded. I cannot recommend this place enough. Gavins attention to detail is second to none. He's an absolute perfectionist who also comes up with ideas along the journey. I went in with the concept of just laying down basic Acoustic and Vocals and ended up with full band production, (much to my satisfaction.) We threw ideas back and forth and rather than over-production (which is common place these days, ) anything we did had to be purposeful and sometimes subtle depending on the dynamic we required. The thing that impressed me the most was Gav's passion for what he does. The bottom line is he just wants you to walk away completely satisfied with the end product. where some studios give you only a few revisions, Gavin was relentless in the pursuit for the perfect sound, mix and master, and did all of this in his own spare time until I was happy with the outcome. In conclusion I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rain City Studios. So far I've recorded an E.P there, a live recording, a Xmas single, and I'm looking forward to working on upcoming projects. Get booked in NOW''
