Matt is a brilliant producer and engineer of both audio and video, and a pleasure to work with. I have been working regularly with him for several years, and I hope to continue that collaboration far into the future. In addition to his vast technical knowledge, he is a brilliant musician and multi-instrumentalist, and he brings THAT expertise into his studio work as well. He has made particular musical suggestions to me that I've incorporated into my recordings. He is also a life-long learner. I have seen him purchase particular apps, patches, etc., and figure out how to use them on the spot, just because he thought they would make our tracks better. I recommend Matt 100%.

Matt was an incredible resource for recording our album. His technical finesse and musical acumen brought things to our recording that we didn't even consider. He really knows his stuff, and he made the entire process much less stressful. We were very happy with the final product, and have every intention of working with Matt again.

As a choreographer who works in nontraditional spaces, I have a specific set of needs from a composer. Matt was able to intuitively respond to the dance materialcreating a complex and beautiful score. Not only did he expertly develop the compositionhe also recorded the parts for both piano and cello and provided digital files that I could use in a variety of settings. I still get compliments on the music and recording quality!

Matt recorded two of my original songs and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. He was insanely helpful, knowledgeable, professional and at the same time just the right amount of laid back and flexible. The songs ended up sounding exactly how I had heard them in my head; Matt was able to translate what I was thinking into high quality amazing sounding tracks. He even jumped in & improvised on piano with no rehearsal on one song after I was like, man, I would love to have piano on this song! He’s truly incredible and I will definitely be recording with him again.

Matt Griffo is a silly genius. He not only a trained musician who practices regularly, he is tech savvy, staying up on the latest recording and producing tools, and totally nerds out about them. He knows sound, he knows production, he knows musicality and style, and he will deliver a result quickly. His time is valuable. My recommendation is come in knowing what you want as much as possible. If you are unclear and want to experiment, you may want to do so outside of the production time to make your time the most valuable. While Matt is open to experimentation, he does extremely well with clear direction. Know your stuff before coming in if possible!
