The waiter is very friendly, the food came out quick, and they nailed my order (two eggs, scrambled, and hash browns in a ring with dry toast). Plus, what a deal! But, really, best place to record in Denton.

My name is Michael Briggs and I'm an audio engineer from Denton, TX. I have over 15 years of experience with audio and have had the great pleasure and privilege to work with hundreds of bands across many different genres. I'm honored to have been voted the "Best Sound Engineer" by the Denton Arts and Music Awards. I'm happy to offer very affordable rates for tracking, mixing and mastering. Mixing and mastering rates are available online at the Upload page. Call or email me for info about tracking times and rates.

I often do it all when bands come to me to make a record: tracking, mixing and mastering. Civil Recording is the name of my studio, located in the heart of Denton, TX (just north of Dallas). In the past I ran a small record label, a DIY house venue and a non-profit coffee roasting company. I still run the Violitionist Sessions website, although we are not recording new sessions for that site at this time.

I'm happy to work on any genre, including rock, pop, hip-hop, punk, emo, electronic, noise rock, folk, classical, jazz, metal, avant-garde, screamo, pop punk, hardcore, etc. I try not to pigeonhole myself into just one genre and I enjoy working on it all. Take a minute to listen to some samples of my past work in the left hand column of the site (or the bottom on mobile). Note: unfortunately hip hop is currently not featured in the samples list, but email me and I can send you a sample. I'm trying to get some songs on there as soon as I can.

In addition to tracking at my studio in Denton, I mix and master albums remotely from all over the US and the world. You can simply track it yourself at your own pace or at a local studio and then send me your multi-track files to be mixed, or send your mixed stereo file for mastering.

I always give every project 100% and satisfaction is guaranteed. I'm not happy until you're happy and "pretty good" is not good enough. The mix is not done until you love it.

Let me know if you have any questions at all, or if you're ready go ahead and send me your files to get started on your mix. I hope to hear from you soon and I look forward to working together.
