Over the last 20 years we’ve had almost a thousand bands and probably 5 or 6 times that number of musicians come through our doors. I can’t really think of any relationship that wasn’t a great one. We are a different kind of studio- and it best reflected through the songs we have produced and the kind words of our clients. This list doesn’t even start to name them all. Please feel free to look up our client based reviews on yelp or google.
Owner and Executive producer James Walsh will be personally overseeing your project from the very first time you call to the delivery of your final masters.

“It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else. To be able to share your music and sound to a team of strangers can be overwhelming. James and the staff at a Threshold Recording Studios led my child to uncover her signature sound. Their patience, honesty and unique approach enabled her to come out of her comfort zone and reveal what mattered most in her music. There is something really magical about this studio and you’ll realize it when your project comes together so effortlessly. What a wonderful experience. It’s astounding to see the talent in your child come alive when they feel secure and confident. Working with James and his staff has been priceless”.

Being a young and up and coming artist in the music business, I honestly need all the help I can get and guidance from the right people like owner, music producer, James Walsh and his team. Threshold Recording Studios is genuinely an amazing place to record. From start to finish, they have been outstanding in everything they have done. Engineer Mike Wuerth was incredibly patient with me and really pushed me to my limits. Soooooo happy!

I worked with Threshold to record my first EP two summers ago. My experience with them is one to remember. What a relaxed and amazing environment! Jeremy was not only a producer but also collaborated with me to bring out my sound. He brought my music to levels I never expected to get to. James was an incredible guide and mentor. To work with James is an honor- he truly gets to know the artist and help them to hone their craft and make them feel right at home inside and outside of the studio. Not to mention the slew of incredible musicians that are a phone call away. James and Jeremy were able to introduce me to incredible musicians who collaborated on my album and brought out my sound in the best way possible.
From the very beginning, Jeremy wanted to get a feel for my sound. His suggestions were never invasive or pushy- he was ALWAYS so on my level. The point is- Jeremy and James never tried to change or take over my sound.
Also- Big Plus- they were SO time flexible. They were able to work around my schedule.
I honestly can’t think of a negative thing to say about Threshold- from start to finish it was a dream.
Recording that album was probably one of the most memorable times in my life. For those of you who record music- you know how difficult it can be to find a sound engineer or a producer who shares your vision. At threshold – their vision is your vision. While they take part 100% they allow the creative energy of the artist to be the driving force of the recording. They don’t try to steer you away from who you are as an artist- quite the opposite- they truly allow you to be yourself.
I was lucky to have found the guys at Threshold!!
Marcia Webb: We Are The Woods
Threshold Studio was exactly what we were looking for in a recording studio; state of the art equipment, a beautiful grand piano, and the fantastic talent and musical genius of producer Jeremy Sklarsky. As a NYC based indie band, the staff of Threshold was really able to work with us to fit the needs of our project. Friendly and creative environment and we had a blast recording out album here!
Jeff Pilson: Foreigner
Just wanted to write a quick note to tell you how much we enjoyed working with you last week, and that your professionalism, expertise, and manner were really a pleasure and I hope we can have that experience again. You’re quite a good pro tools op as well (option “C” baby!!!!). Please tell James we had a great experience and hope there will be many more times!
Todd Alsup: Singer, Pianist, Performing Artist
As I began my career as a songwriter and performer in NYC, James was a strong source of support from the very start. When we met I hadn’t yet established my own artistic identity and wasn’t entirely sure of where I fit in the professional music world. I grew up with the sounds of Motown, soul and disco in my head and hands, but I didn’t really know how to bring those sounds to life. I had drive and raw ability, but I lacked finesse, confidence and professional experience.
James had great faith in my talent. He nurtured me and helped me build a path to success. He and his team have worked diligently with me, side by side, helping me put together many of the pieces I need as an independent artist – everything from recording an album, building a fan base, securing endorsements and press, developing a college booking strategy, helping to facilitate placements of my songs in TV and film, and establishing many other key professional relationships. Many of his ideas were non-traditional (some might even say radical), but most of them have paid off in ways we would never have imagined.
He was vital in helping me identify my audience, encouraging me to always be true to myself as a person and an artist and helping me find my sound. He helped me figure out how to reach my goals: strategies which we have used every step of the way to move my career forward. With James’ help I have a record I love, a loyal and growing fan base and I’ve been able to make a living as a touring artist!
Nicholas James (Band): Singer Songwriter 19yrs old
For me, it all started with a piano. As early as 12 years old I began song writing and
singing about love and loss, things I really knew nothing about. Almost 7 years later, with
a lot more experience and now a guitar, I began to refine my art. During the summer of
2010 I finally had my song, and I began to search for a producer and a studio to record in.
When I had my first meeting with James and Jeremy It felt right from the start. I knew
that these were the guys that would see my vision and help me capture it in this song.
After spending hours with me, talking about who I was as a musician and having me play
my demo songs for them, we settled on the song Safe In My Arms. And so the journey
began, as James Jeremy and I began to chisel my masterpiece out of stone.
It was never just about the production with them; once you get to their level of sound
engineering everything they produce is radio ready. For both James and Jeremy, it is
about understanding the artists and his/her song. The process I went through to record
this song, not only made the song what it is now, but has also changed me as a musician.
I was challenged and tested each day I walked through the door of Threshold Studios. There are few studios like this around anymore, let along producers who put this
much care for every one of their client’s music.
Now almost a year later, with a full band I have begun to tour around the New York Tri-
state area playing the big name venues Id only dreamt about playing before my work with
James and Jeremy. Even after we finished the song, and discussed finishing the album
over time, James and Jeremy continue to come to my shows and guide me on this musical
Working with James and Jeremy, and recording in Threshold Studios was one of the
most amazing experiences I have encountered thus far in my young musical career. Not
only for the finished product; my song which has given me much acclaim, but also as a
musician in general. The knowledge that Jeremy has in all categories of musical theory,
past and present bands, and vocal technique has helped to influence not only the sound ofSafe In My Arms, but my future writing. The musician I am today, the one I found within
myself at 20 years old, would still be hiding if it were not for the direction of James. I
look forward to working with James and Jeremy for many years, and many albums down
Edelweiss:My boys (16 and 14 years of age at the time) were interested in having some songs recorded professionally for their band. We did a bit of research and even though there are plenty of recording studios around us in Northeast Pennsylvania, we decided that we would need to go to New York to get the quality and sound that we were looking for. After visiting a couple of studios we came across Threshold. From the moment we met Jeremy Sklarsky and saw the studio, we knew we had made the right decision. Not only is the studio, staff and resulting sound top of the line, but we were extremely comfortable with the manner in which they worked with such a young band, two of which were our children. Thresholds experience in working with artists on all different levels really showed as the finished product was AMAZING such that we went back into the studios a few months later for a second recording. Whether it’s a young new band or an established band looking to work with a top of the line studio to ensure a great finished product and that their recording dollars are spent wisely to ‘get it right’, I vigorously recommend Threshold Studios.Greg Porlier

I would like to congratulate you on a fantastic job working with my son, music artist Mat Brandon.
Mat came to you a few years back, as a thirteen year old with some songs and melodies. Today he is an up and coming music artist, with some great songs and a CD on iTunes. I doubt very much anyone else would of have taken the time, over a few years and countless hours, to see the material blossom from an idea and melody into a major accomplishment for a kid now entering college.
– You provided guidance from the beginning, helping develop the songs to the point where they are commercially viable.
– His experience was invaluable in learning about the music business and production.
– An opportunity working with established studio musicians.
– You have provided guidance and marketing ideas, developing branding and a fantastic myspace page where his fans can view his material and purchase his work.
– Your dedication and work with Mat also blossomed into a friendship and long lasting relationship.
– Mat’s music work also allowed him to provide his college application process with additional resource material and gave him a chance to be accepted where otherwise he might not have been.
Sincerly and best regards,
Howard and Mindy Neugeboren
