Hi and welcome, my name is Ray Balconis, and I am a producer & vocal coach whose work has been on the radio and charting in Billboard for many years now. My recording studio in New York offers ultra-high quality recording, mixing, & mastering in a very friendly, relaxed, & creative atmosphere. I work 1-on-1 with my clients to make every performance, every song, and every project the very best that it can be.
***Congratulations to my client Eric Lewis - aka ELEW - whose virtuoso piano playing is featured on the song "IANAHB" - the title track of Lil Wayne's new album: I Am Not A Human Being II***
The studio is located in Maspeth, Queens NY on the Brooklyn / Queens border 4 miles from Manhattan. Just a few minutes from most communities in New York City & New Jersey! See the directions page for more information.
I have over 20 years of experience in the art of recording & producing. I know how to take your songs and give them all of the polish, punch, & "MAGIC" that they need to compete with what's on the radio. Please visit my testimonials page to see how happy all of my clients have been with their experience here.
Remember, the thing that makes a studio special is the person running it. A million dollars worth of equipment can't help you if your engineer doesn't know how to use it. I have real world experience in making music for the major labels & radio, and I can make you sound just as good as or better than anything out there. One of the most frequent & gratifying compliments that I get from my clients is that I far out perform other studios in New York City that charged them 2 or 3 times my price.
When you're ready, please feel free to come by for a free consultation and to see Studio Ray in person (by appointment only). Have a listen to the many artists who've made their recordings here, and then let your own ears decide. (You can hear samples on my clients page and my news page, as well as on myspace.com/Studio Ray NYC). So just email me or give me a call ... I look forward to hearing from you.
