Coal Holler Studios is a recording studio located in Brighton, MI, featuring both analog and digital tools. Making music is the driving force, and the focus is on getting a big sound in an intimate setting. You don't need a million dollar studio anymore; just some decent gear, and a great set of ears.

If you need a break, take a short walk to the lake, swim in the pool, or play some PS3 / PS4 / PS5.

Or I can pack things up and come to you...
