Michael is a gifted engineer. He was able to understand my sound, get a flawless recording, and do a fantastic mix. All this despite the fact that i am not a typical for him: i'm a blues/bluegrass acoustic player. He is talented enough at what he does that he can adjust seamlessly on the fly to something unfamiliar. Much respect
Michael is such a great guy and a professional in his field. He takes care of your sound for your money's worth. After having to deal with bad engineers in the past, I was happy to have found this guy, one who actually knows his job. meeting him was a blessing....I love Michael and you will too once you work with him.....Michael "you the best!"
Michael Ashby is one of a kind Engineer. He produces nothing but pure quality. The service and dedication he puts into his craft is well noted and I have worked with him for years and I wouldn't recommend anyone but him.
Watching Michael make magic is a great experience, He knows what his doing and he makes the artist feel comfortable by coaching them and guiding them. Me being a female engineer who is new to the game likes the way he teaches me to work with artist and how to build a relationship with them. His just great!!!
I'm actually working with Mike. He makes me feel so comfortable in the studio and makes everything sound like a finished record from the jump. I would recomend him to everyone even the most inexperienced artists.😊💯

Michael Ashby aka "Magic Mike" is honestly the best engineer I've ever worked with. As a Songwriter/Singer, I pride myself in the recording ART and to have someone with attentive ears that can hear if something is the slightest bit off, helps make the creative process that much easier. I recommend him to anyone looking for a dedicated engineer.

We worked with michael in a refugee project called "Forgotten People" and his Proffessionalism and sound was impeccable. Not only do you get a great sound from his studio but you also get in time that you need. Michael is both a humanitarian at heart as well as a great producer. The directions were given over Skype from London England to his studio

As a drummer, my relationship with Michael has always been pleasurable. He's a drummer and knows exactly what I want to hear in my headphones and how to make the drums sing! As a producer I've called him several times asking sonic advice. How to get the best out of my plugins and how to send a decent production mix. Mike is surly my #1 engineer!
Michael Ashby is truly a gem at his craft, his tentativeness and footprint are written all over every track he touches. I'm currently in a hip hop collective releasing our first mixtape and working with Ashby MAKES ME WANNA WRITE MORE MUSIC!!! and as a artist that's the best thing in the world when a engineer makes YOU sound better to Yourself!!!!!
Mike makes strive for perfection. He wants You to leave with something your proud of.
Mike has a great habit of making his studio a stress-free environment. Everytime I've been there, we've been able to create something even better than expected. Mainly due to his ability to listen to the artist and creatively coming up with ways to enhance everything. I highly recommend him if you need a quality studio.
Make music with Mike is mystical experience. What you take out can help you so much
I ALWAYS have a positive experience working with Mike! He's so patient and knowledgeable, and he really cares about my vision as the artist. He does his best to bring it to life, and when I listen to my work that comes out of there, it's always a good feeling! I always learn something new from him, and I highly recommend him!!

Once You Are Blessed With His Mixing You'll Never Want A Mix From Anyone Else ! Book Your Session Early Too Becuase He's Always Booked
Ashby is one of the most passionate engineers I have worked with. It's not just a job for him, he genuinely loves what he does and it shows in his work. As an Rnb vocalist I require a lot more than most engineers can handle but I'm super confident working with Michael. Now if only we can get more engineers like him, music will be better as a whole.
Hands down one of the best 🙌
I'm in a hip hop collective, and we are putting out our first mixtape, all engineered by Michael Ashby. And I couldn't be more happy with the outcome. He truly takes his time, and has the kind of musical ear that picks up on everything and knows EXACTLY where you are going with it. As an artist, this is invaluable. Highly recommended to everyone.
