Home Studio Registry: Vance Dylan

Future plans/projects

Now located 10 minutes outside of Dartmouth. Sonic Valley Productions have opted to stray from the mundane studio techniques of putting clients in a dark stale room seperated by glass. Our home studio overlooks the Salmon River located on over 20 acres giving clients a pure artist retreat. We offer three private guest rooms as well as airport and local transportation services for our out of town guests.
