"Eric is as good as it gets! This was my first professional recording I've done and I cant speak highly enough of my experience at Groove Tunes. Eric took time and walked me through every step of the way and delivered a great product. He is very knowledgeable and is truly a master of his craft. With his help my project came out ahead of schedule and under the amount I was quoted. I wont lie, this studio isn't the cheapest (its fairly priced), but this studio is by FAR the best value you can get in the price range. My friends and family can't believe the quality and I am beyond satisfied with how my project came out. If you're more of a singer/songwriter or Rock 'n Roll act (this is not a rap/R&B studio) do yourself a favor and check Groove Tunes out."

"I went to Groove Tunes after a very disappointing experience with a Nashville studio. I had written a pretty intricate song which called for a LOT of vocals and orchestral instruments, and the studio I had hired up there really botched it. After Eric heard my story, he assured me that I had come to the right place. He said that Groove Tunes was way better than the recording studios up in Nashville (it is) and that his studio musicians were all top-shelf (they are). He also told me that not only was I welcome to attend the recording sessions, he actually WANTED me to be there (vs. Nashville didn't want me there at all). I'm a very picky person (as Eric soon found out), but luckily, he's extremely patient and we worked together very well. In short order, my song started to take shape the way I was hearing it in my head, and I was thrilled! As promised, Eric brought in some fabulous musicians; I enjoyed meeting them and it was a lot of fun to be involved in the recording process. I couldn't be happier with Groove Tunes: Eric delivered to me a very professional, mastered, and radio-ready finished product, and I heartily recommend Groove Tunes to anyone who is looking for a recording studio. Don't hesitate to give Eric a call -- you won't be sorry!"
"I had the honor and privilege to go meet with a friend yesterday to rehearse some beloved songs with a fellow Beatle fanatic. Music has been such a big part of my life. The love of the Beatles, their music, their talent, impact, coolness, etc., etc, (you could rave forever), have been with me from day one. It is fair to say that John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Star were my vocal coaches in life. Though I can't claim to their level of greatness, I always aspired to it and never ceased to appreciate it, or them, as the years rolled by. My Friend Eric Tunison shares this sentiment times 10!
Eric is a record producer and accomplished guitarist. His knowledge of music, and talent, is immense. He is also a Beatles expert. When he asked me over to his studio, I did not know what to expect. I knew he ran in a circle of multi talented individuals, many of which I have met through him, and the open mics at Abbotts Bar and Grille, sponsored by Groove Tunes Studios (http://groovetunesstudios.com). I figured it would be nice, but was not ready for what I walked into. I am not ass kissing. This is like admiring an awesome car, motorcycle, gun, guitar, or building. Giving props!
I am, admittedly, not a professional musician, so my exposure to recording studios is somewhat is limited, but I have some degree of talent and have been to a few. I also have an eye for beauty and an ear for music. I have seen photos and videos of pro studios. I have been involved in music my whole life. I can honestly say, I was blown away when I walked in Groove Tunes Studios. This is a first class business, elegantly established and decorated, with state of the art sound equipment. The play back room (not pictured) looks like something out of star wars. The environment is both professional and relaxing. I have never seen anything like it and did not even know what I was looking at half the time. The photos don't come close to doing the place justice. It was both posh and elegant. The equipment was futuristic. I felt like I was at Apple, Capricorn, Capital, or some other famous company. I felt special just being there and felt kind of rock starrish. Haha!!. I felt like a Beatle or Rolling Stone! It was truly an inspirational event. The experience was awesome, so is Eric!!!!
I could not recommend Eric or his studio highly enough. If you want to invest into professional recording, I think you could get more bang for your buck at Groove Tunes Studios than anywhere in town. I encourage all my music peeps to give it a look! If you ever want to meet Eric, he is up at Abbotts on Wednesday nights. He is very approachable and easy to talk to. Very cool man!!! I'm still Day Trippin on yesterday.
I am the Gregman, Coo Coo Ca Choo!"
"Thank you Eric Tunison for your dedicated hard work and meticulous engineering on the title track Shape This Love and single I Miss You!!! With your help Shape This Love won for best country ballad album! Can't wait to see what we can do together next!"

"Couldn't have been happier with the finished product. Not only were the recordings fantastic, the overall experience was a blast! Loved getting to work with Eric... I'll definitely be coming back!"
"My experience with Groove Tunes was exceptional. It was my first time recording and Eric went out of his way to help me understand the process, make me feel comfortable and add value through out. The results of my recordings far exceeded my expectations. Eric used his connections to find musicians and singers to help make bring my songs to life and sound extremely professional. Can't say enough about the experience."
"Eric assisted us through every step of his recording process to produce an incredible record that we almost could not believe. The artist that he brought in to participate in the session made the songs sound really professional. We enjoyed the entire process. His guidance and support was key to our success."

"We have just finished work on my song 'Short Girls'. What Eric Tunison at Groove Tunes Studios has done is comparable to taking an old black and white negative and transforming it into a 3D High Def Color masterpiece. Absolutely Amazing! Thanks Eric!:
"My favorite part about working with Eric (have done so many times over the past years) is his professionalism and artistry. As a performer, it's difficult to find a producer who both truly values your input while using his expertise to take your music to the next level. Eric's years of experience and ear for the music AND artist allow him to bring out the best in people. He captures the vision for a project without saturating the record with every possible idea. This kind of precision is difficult to achieve. When we work together, I feel like all my ideas are encouraged and heard. At the same time, his thoughtful insights afford me the chance to stretch my own creativity in an easy, collaborative way. The environment at Groove Tunes (including of course the great equipment/gear/studio setup itself) affords this balance of creating and refining. Both elements are so crucial to a great project, and Eric gets them so well. Looking forward to next time!"
"Choosing Groove Tunes Studios was a truly positive and consequential decision in my quest to record ballads from the middle twentieth century and earlier. In undertaking my project, I was intent on finding a studio, which had the state-of-the-art technical equipment necessary to create a twenty-first century commercial product and which also had access to capable musicians whose arrangements would complement my singing style, an evocation of a much earlier period in American Popular Music history. I am very fortunate that Groove Tunes Studios, under the masterful direction of owner Eric Tunison, was the place that delivered fully on all of my demands. Eric's focused oversight of my project was highly competent, orderly, engaged, collaborative, flexible and reassuring. I am confident that on the day I walked out of Groove Tunes with my completed recording, I was the happiest singer in the world!"
"I meet Eric several years ago when I sent an email to him. I asked for some studio work and he asked me to come down for an audition. After I walked into his studio I knew right away I was out of my league. He still asked me to lay down tracks for several of his customers. It took me a while to understand why he wanted to use me. It’s not how great a musician is or a singer is, but its how the team works together. I have done work where they have had the hottest player in the state and the track sounded like crap. Eric not only knows what to listen for, he can pull the most creative stuff out of a person all the while they don’t even know what’s going on. I love that in a person. Eric puts aside what he wants to make and listens to what is needed. That’s how great CD’s are made. It’s a rare talent and becoming less obvious every day. His studio is one of the most comfortable I have personally been in. Laid out in a fashion where you can relax and still feel the “Recording Vibe” If you have not meet him in person, he is one of the most genuine people on the planet. His dry sense of humor is right up my alley. LOL!
I would rate his studio and him an 11 out of 10. Can other studios do great work? Of course they can, and I have played in them. At the end of the day it’s all about what little stress I have had with a project and money. With Groove Tunes Studio and Eric you get the biggest bang for the buck……….It’s heaven and a welcomed job!"
"I sing and play guitar very badly. However, i wanted to record a song I wrote for my wife for our anniversary. I gave Eric a VERY ROUGH version of my song and he did the rest. He brought in the best musicians and mixed everything together to make my song sound exactly the way I wanted it to sound. I cannot be happier with the results! Eric is the best. Thanks again!!!"
"After a detailed search for a studio to perform our first pro recording, I chose Groove Tunes. The owner, Eric Tunison, first spoke with me over the phone and thoroughly explained the process. He was professional and up front about what to expect. A subsequent tour of the studio sealed the deal. Eric is a pro, and only works with pros. The whole process was seamless and the end result was amazing. Whether experienced or inexperienced with the recording process, I can highly recommend Groove Tunes without reservation. It was a fantastic experience, and I look forward to future sessions with Eric and Groove Tunes Studios."

"Eric was a great manager of the whole process from the get go. He took my vision for the music and made it even more incredible than I ever thought it could be. His studio is fantastic, and the session musicians he works with are as amazing as he is. It is both awesome and humbling to watch him take your concept and make it reality with some of the best musicians in the country."
"Open Mic Atlanta has chosen Groove Tunes Studios as the Official Recording Studio of Open Mic Atlanta. Groove Tunes Studios is the perfect studio for our open mic musicians," stated Craver, President of OpenMic USA. "They have years of experience in working with singer-songwriters, as well as major acts. This is where I record all of my music. If you're looking for the best place to record in Atlanta, you're in luck! Not only does Groove Tunes Studios deliver amazing quality, they do it for less!"
President Open Mic USA
"I recorded my first album, Squid Legs Gumbo, of 8 songs with Groove Tunes studios. All I needed to do was record my vocals and acoustic guitar. Eric took care of the rest and produced the entire album. I gave him an idea of what each song should sound like and he nailed each one. He has a network of the finest musicians around; he was even able to bring in an excellent steel guitar player for some of the songs. The songs sound as if they came straight out of Nashville. To hear the quality produced by Eric, check out ReverbNation – Michael Staton - I would not hesitate to use Groove Tunes again."
"I recently finished recording my first CD at Groove Tunes. I have a home studio and was working for 5-6 years to try and get this done with little success. Eric provided a very professional environment and expertise to make this project not only successful, but enjoyable as well. His collaboration was phenomenal, bringing ideas to the table but always making me feel it was my project. A complete professional, and I will be recording my second CD here as well."

"Eric Tunison at Groove Tunes makes the recording and studio experience 'comfortable' and if you could ever say something like this is 'easy'...he does it. He is extremely knowledgable, respectful, prompt, and creative, in addition to being a technical expert in engineering and recording. His studio atmosphere is superior and he uses state of the art equipment. He also lends just the right amount (probably whatever the client requests in terms of producing the project as well)...but for me, just the right amount of 'input' to the creativity portion of the project, while remaining extremely respectful of the artist's wishes and ideas. I started my project elsewhere and after that didn't work out I brought a partially finished project to him. The circumstances were so difficult and yet, he took it and ran with it, making the transition stress-free for me. I am thrilled with the finished product he worked his 'magic' on. Thanks Groove Tunes!!!!"
