    Heath is the best. It's really amazing the studio quality you get when you work with him. He can make magic out of any raw material, and his skills & ear are of the highest quality out there. He is also great to work with, and would never let me settle for a performance that was less than stellar, always getting the best of me on the record

    I recently was in need of a fast turn around and high quality mix, i was referred to Heath and couldn't have been any happier with the result. Very easy to work with and down to earth guy, delivering a punchy and crisp mix, I really couldn't have asked for a better experience and result.
    Very highly recommended.

    In working with Heath, he is very professional and made it a lot of fun so that I didn't feel uncomfortable. I trust his opinion and know no matter what he will stick to his word! Heath has an ear for music and made sure my songs were to the best of my ability! My new EP album is titled,UNBREAKABLE by Natalia Jolley and can be found on itunes.

    My daughter, Natalia had the opportunity to meet with Heath in his studio to record her EP album this past Spring. Heath was very professional, yet made the experience a lot of fun:) When the songs were finished we were able to collaborate together on any changes we thought should be made and Heath knows the business and shared his expertise!

    Heath had been referred via a mutual collaborator/friend to mix our latest EP. Upon our opening conversation, he comfortably discussed the vision and tonalities of what would work best given the musical stlyings of the tracks. I feel very satisfied with Heath's hard work, and making good on his word to deliver a "larger" sound.

He's there to make your song that much better while maintaining your artistic view of your music, and not stepping on toes to make it happen.His mixes are perfect,and he's efficient!Excellent work ethic,knowledgeable and friendly! Looking forward to more sessions!

    I've been fortunate enough to work with Heath on multiple projects,ranging from 4 piece rock bands to session work.One of the most impressive assets Heath owns is his ability to work efficiently at a very face paced rate,multi tasking better than any engineer I've been with.On top of that, he's personable.Which is a rarity in his line of work.

    Heath is the most professional recording artist I've met. I have gone to Heath for several years and will continue to do so.
    Not only does he complete projects fast but with equal quality and sonic precision. I highly recommend collaborating with Heath no matter what genre of music you play. I consider him a one stop shop to get things done!

    I have worked with Heath and at Ripshore on multiple occasions. Every session I have had at his studio has been a dream, the vocal booth is extremely comfortable, and his vocal chain is a dream to work on. Some of my favorite guitar and bass tones have been tracked at Ripshore on Heaths Kemper. 10/10 recommend to any artist.

    My experience with Heath has been incredible. Heath is truly a professional with a thorough approach, a great vision and I can honestly say, the greatest professional I have worked with in the music industry, by far. The sound is always crisp and is at eye level with the greatest in the world. I absolutely would recommend Heath. - TalentDisplay

  3. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  4. A: I've been a musician for most of my life. Writing and producing music has always come very natural to me. And I've always enjoyed being in a studio environment. About 11 years ago I started working in the studio and it all came very naturally. I recorded bands for free for a while and beefed up my chops and before long I was making a living recording and mixing. I'm very passionate about what I do and I pour everything into my work.

  5. Q: How would you describe your style?

  6. A: My style is very slick and in your face.

  9. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  10. A: I'd have to say communication. That really helps put clients at ease and feel comfortable throughout the process.

  11. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  12. A: The majority of my time in the studio is spent mixing. I also do a good amount of vocal production and full band productions. When I'm not working on other people's music I spend my time producing my own music for film and TV. I currently have music featured on Showtime, Discovery, Fox Sports, TLC, Nat Geo, HGTV, and DIY network.
