 Full production for Singer/Songwriters

So, you have a great song and can carry a tune but you don't have a band and don't know how to record. Now what? Well, you've come to the right place! DBW is your one stop shop for producing your demo or CD project. Most all production can be done "in house". This includes expert guitar and bass guitar playing, keyboard and drum programming, lead and backing vocals and even live drums! Using the DBW rhythm section we've produced many Indie CD's for artists giving them a real band sound. If you need great production then you've come to the right place!

 Bands Welcome 4 Live Rooms!

Our recording studio features 4 rooms so we can easily accommodate bands. Eye contact and instrument isolation is easily achieved allowing that "magic" take to happen! We’ll help you self-produce your dream project by providing a little (or a lot) of our insight on how to make a great recording.

 David Chamberlin Music Producer | Engineer

David Chamberlin Music Producer DBW Productions
David Chamberlin, DBW’s owner/operator, is a multi-instrumentalist and has been making music since the age of 5, first starting on guitar and piano and finally on clarinet and sax. Playing the Ohio bar scene at the tender age of 16 Dave ended up relocating to Florida with the band "Dorian Gray" (their drummer was Jani Lane, front man for Warrant). Dave moved to LA and graduated from Musician's Institute with a degree in advanced guitar playing. While being a full time guitar teacher for 8 years, Dave "stumbled" into recording and decided to make that his main profession. Well, it's now been 20 years since DBW Productions first opened it's doors and Dave has produced countless artists and over 70 Indie CD projects!

  • Dave is exceptional! We have always enjoyed working in his impeccable studio with the latest and greatest upgrades! The peaceful, safe and beautiful atmosphere, helps set the mood for the best take- every time. Dave is not only an extraordinary recording engineer but an exceptional musician with an understanding of all musical genres. Dave helps see our vision through to the end- on every song and delivers our songs on time- every time. He has a great sense of humor so working with Dave is always enjoyable. And we must say that we are always awed by his attention to every detail; he strives for perfection, even after a six hour session! It's just one of the many things that sets Dave apart. Thanks Dave! Destiny-Burnett Music Group
  • I knew Dave back in the early 90's before he curated all this great studio and gear. The gear and room is great here! Here is the real thing: Dave has the genius talent to take minimally effective gear and make it sound great! (I have seen him take an 8 track reel to reel in 1994 and intuitively mix it to make a greater 16 to DAT - back when that was a "thing" in a small apartment.) More importantly, he is a great producer! What I mean by that is that he has the patience to make a client feel comfortable and draw out a greater authentic performance as a result. Combined with his programming and musical skills (all instruments), I would not hesitate to recommend DBW Productions for any singer songwriter project! (In fact, knowing Dave's talent as a musician/composer, I would not hesitate to recommend Dave for projects that span beyond that space! Got a Movie? Seriously, I have interfaced with the best and am confident DBW can deliver that too!Jonathan Wilson-GuitarViols Inc.
  • David and I have worked together on 10 CDs over almost 2 decades. I was very, very lucky that I found him. He is quite a talent.Scott-Spring Hill Records
  • DBW Productions can definitely make steak out of hamburg. My first song recorded at DBW was professionally done and airplay ready. The station manager of our local Christian station WNPQ was so impressed with the production quality he put it into immediate rotation lasting up to one year. Great job Dave! Mike O.
  • Great studio, gear... immaculately tuned room (for mixing and mastering).... But the most important part is the talent and experience David brings to the table. Andrew K.- Audiobro
  • With all the options for recording available in Los Angeles - why do I choose DBW productions? The answer is simple. David Chamberlin is not only a master engineer and recording guru - he can play almost any instrument expertly as well! His work ethic is "throwback" to days when you could expect high levels of craftsmanship and could do it on a hand shake. David is also a man of humor and impeccable character. When it comes to ending the day with a professional sharp sounding product (I do every style of music) I have learned to rely on David. I cannot recommend him highly enough. The studio is beautiful and comfortable. He even puts up with my stupid Swedish jokes! Reliable and professional and fun - give DBW a try!J. David N.
  • David is an amazing musician and engineer, and I HIGHLY recommend his services. He's very professional and also an extremely fun guy to work with. I did my last CD project (jazz) at his studio and would not hesitate to use him again.Donna D.
  • As the drummer for WARRANT, I've tracked in some of the finest studios in the U.S. with some of the greatest producers and engineers and can honestly say that Dave Chamberlin and the studio at DBW Productions are easily among the finest in talent and comfort. Aside from being the greatest big brother a guy could have (character and integrity references count for a lot), I've worked with Dave @ DBW Productions many times over the past "many" years and continually marvel at the level of commitment Dave affords each project he immerses himself in. Additionally (and most importantly), Dave is easily the most talented, well-rounded musician I know - a prodigy on guitar, he's ever learning the latest techniques to achieve the best sound possible in the studio for every instrument he tracks. As any return customer will tell you, Dave is the most accommodating, naturally talented, producer, engineer, musician you can find anywhere. Steven S.-Warrant
  • Dave is an exceptional producer and musician. Our experience with him was above and beyond expectations. He combines years of professional LA music industry experience with the integrity of his Ohio roots. Dave was a dream to work with, and the resulting project (EP) was out of the park!Pam Z.

 You record it, we'll mix it!

DBW Productions DAWs
With the advent of today's computers, a lot of musicians now have a home studio. But, the thing they don't have is a tuned control room and (more importantly) the experience to do a professional mix. That's where DBW comes in. We can take your self produced tracks and give them a professional mix and even master them so that they sound comparable to today's modern recordings. We'll arrange for you to send us your tracks either via internet (ftp) or the mail on a cd or dvd data disc and will walk you through the process in terms of file formats, etc. We can open native Garage Band, Logic, Digital Performer, Pro Tools and Reaper files. But, it's easy enough for us to work with any DAW format if the tracks are all bounced down correctly. Give your home recording a more professional sound with the help of DBW!

 Custom Music/Post Production

Styles range from mellow acoustic guitar music to full orchestration. How about a place to record voice over or to replace dialog? Maybe you need a custom theme for your podcast? You'll love our clean, comfortable facility and quick turnaround!
