about

Formerly known as Apparition Sound Studios. Reclaim Studios, located in Thompson, Connecticut, is owned and operated by Chris Curran. An active musician in the Boston music scene for more than 10 years (Four Year Strong, Teamwork etc.) He brings his knowledge and talent to the studio both as an audio engineer and as a producer. His goal has always been to produce professional recordings for independent bands at very affordable rates. Chris is dedicated to helping musicians, bands, and record labels produce EPs and albums that compete with big studio recordings, at a fraction of the price.

At Reclaim Studios we want our clients to be completely satisfied with our services. We focus on developing a comfortable recording environment so that the artist(s) are able to focus on what is most important, the music. We offer production, recording, mixing and mastering services for any genre of music. Rates are subject to the amount of time that is required for a certain project.
