What does it take to start a successful recording studio? In this episode, Dennis interviews Michael Seals to find out. Michael is the founder, producer, and audio engineer at Sanctuary Studios in Boise, Idaho. Michael has been involved in music since he first picked up a guitar at 10 years old. After getting a degree in music from Boise State University, Michael believed his future would be centered around professionally performing. After his life took a turn, Michael put his family first while pursuing other career goals, but never lost his love of music and performing. He's played in local bands, church worship groups, and eventually decided to start the recording studio to cater to other artists who were looking at capturing a professional sound while enjoying a relaxed atmosphere.
Sanctuary Studios provides an incredibly chill recording environment and access to top-notch equipment including microphones, preamps, and audio interfaces. Michael works with every client to determine what will bring out the best sound and can even provide assistance during recording to ensure a quality, great sounding end product.
In addition to musical recording, Michael has recorded podcasts, audiobooks, and more in his studio. In fact, since Just Around the Corner was launched in July 2019, every episode has been recorded at Sanctuary Studios with Michael playing a vital role in its success.
