Carpet Booth Studios on SoundBetter

Carpet Booth has quickly become THE recording studio in our local scene here in Rochester, MN. We've worked with artists from all backgrounds, and with genres of all different kinds. We thought it was time to take our expertise and passion for producing top quality audio to a broader scene of artists. You make the sound, we'll make it sound great.

Carpet Booth Studios offers a wide range of audio services: recording, producing, mixing, mastering, editing, vocal tuning, songwriting, commissions, session work, studio rental, rehearsal space, remote tracking, and corporate work. If there is something you need done and you don't see it here just shoot us a message and we'll get back to you!

Now here's a little bit about the team:

Zach Zurn is the owner and head producer/engineer. He is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. He studied Music with an emphasis in voice and composition at Winona State University, and Music Production at Berklee College of Music Online. He has a love for reverb, offset guitars, honest songwriting, and clever lyricism. He seeks to create beautiful, thoughtful, and inspiring music.

Nikola Hamilton is the only other producer and engineer working at Carpet Booth Studios. He is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, engineer, and producer. He studied Music Production at Rochester Community and Technical College, at Berklee College of Music Online, and at the school of trial and error with an emphasis on bedroom production before transitioning into working at Carpet Booth Studios. He is driven to make purposeful and honest music with artists from every genre.

    I recently completed a song-writing session with Zach. His professional fusion of creativity, patience, and cleverness exceeded my expectations. I'm walking away feeling sharpened and excited to build this project with Zach's expertise laced through out the entire process.
    High recommendations to Carpet Booth Studios!
