At Shuman Recording, your vision and your ideas are realized.

Careful attention to detail and years of hands-on knowledge and experience are given to every project that we do. We understand that your recordings are important time capsules and that you want them to sound and feel great for years to come. The recording environment at Shuman is comfortable yet arranged in a way that maintains efficiency and inspires creativity at the same time.

We keep our customers happy and satisfied by accommodating all possibilities.

According to Owner/Engineer Scott Shuman, the clientele of Shuman Recording is quite varied and eclectic. Scott says, "We have done Spoken word, World music (a la Ethiopia), Jazz, Bluegrass and off site recordings of everything from large classical productions in Washington, to location recordings of Blues and R&B in St. Louis and the mid west."

We also understand musicians and their needs.

"As a younger musician, I would record in studios where the engineers would try to get my music to sound like they thought it should sound. That’s when I got into engineering. Musicians have their own vision, and I think it’s important to respect that."

Because of our commitment and close personal relationships with our clients, the studio has been booked and consistently busy for almost 12 years. We have a long list of customers who keep coming back including IONA, the premier Pan Celtic band, the notable conductor Clifford Hardin and Singer Songwriters Mike Johns and James Manion. Shuman recording consults to, and does much of the digital remastering for Time Life Music, and works on a daily basis with many of the other major record labels.
