A&R and Recording Services

For Artists



A&R, or Artist & Repetoire, at FTO means: We look for you or you find us. We like each other. We decide to partner-up, where we offer you some kind of melange of free recording, video, design, and showcasing services and you offer up your hard work, focus and talent. Together, we share in the fruits of all of our labor in co-ownership.

Label and publisher intro’s when the works are complete? Yes – we have close, open-door relationships across the industry, across the globe.
For more information, follow the simple steps of sending info, not mp3’s, in an email. Tell us what your current performing situation is all about, if you have some partners like a manager/agent/etc. already, and what you want to achieve in the next year. Then, attach a link to your music.

 Recording Services

Our facility was built by one of the designer’s of Studio A at The Power Station, aka Avatar. So, pretty much, the rooms sound amazing. Our equipment and awesome mics? Check out the list below. Our engineers? Click over on your right. We can have a vocalist in Studio B and the six-piece band in Studio A and the engineer in either control room and everyone can see and hear each other with total isolation. Oh, and we can video/photo document it all.

Those bases covered, we talk about the service in Recording Services too. We’re a private facility. This place becomes your home, your sanctuary, your field to run in with your muse. The energy here is great, and our staff of engineers can help a project from start to finish. We even have a related rehearsal studio just a few blocks away.

Reach out to Dan, our lead engineer and in-house producer to find out more about the rooms and how we service FTO acts and our friends in the biz.
