When John Storyk designed Sweatshop Studios, it wasn't just with his architectural expertise in mind; he also brought talent as an acoustician to the project. Thanks to that dual vision, its contemporary design and equipment please both the eye and the ear. Songwriting legends such as Gary Portnoy (the man behind the theme song for Cheers) have recorded music there; author Mary Pope Osborne of the Magic Tree House series created an audiobook in the studio. In addition to welcoming professionals, Sweatshop's recording engineers and other seasoned staff lead workshops for novices.
