I’ve worked in Studio FMP on many occasions and it’s been a blast every time. Most memorable was the recording of my second album “Art Of Conversation” released in 2007 which had Scott Ferguson featured as co-producer, engineer and drummer. The album was nominated for two East Coast Music Awards that year and is still a big seller at my live shows. Working in the studio is aways comfortable and professional. It becomes like working with family very quickly!
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Studio FMP for several years and have always appreciated the quality of my recordings when they are complete. Scott Ferguson has built a full service business that starts with a warm and welcoming creative atmosphere and while his gear is cutting edge, industry standard, he also knows how to use it.”
“Working with Scott at Studio FMP is always a joy. His vast knowledge on all things audio is impressive. His solid understanding of video post production is thorough and greatly appreciated. His genuine enthusiasm for each and every project, unparalleled”.
“…the vibe was cool but more importantly, the level of professionalism at FMP Matrix matched studios where I have worked in Nashville”
“I have co-produced both of my albums at Studio FMP and couldn’t be happier with the results.”
“Scott is my favourite producer to work with, a fine talent and a great person…he creates an environment in which I can make the record I want to make
without knowing how to do it myself”.

“I have continued to have a great experience at Studio FMP for years. Scott’s personable and caring persona and the quality of the facilities are second to none. He is extremely easy to work with. The equipment is superb and the studio is warm and beautiful. Scott goes way beyond the call of duty to provide the highest integrity and quality. I recommend Studio FMP without any reservations with my highest recommendations! I would encourage anyone to record their project there. I always look forward to getting in town and working at Studio FMP.”
“I had a great first recording experience at Studio FMP when I tracked songs for my debut album (“In My Bones”). It’s a well organized, pristine space with super supportive engineers who have a wealth of audio experience”.
“Putting your project in Scott’s hands, is a very Sound Investment. Great studio, great ears and sound sensibilities.”
“Studio FMP has proven to be that next step and more. Scott is an absolute professional, and a pleasure to work with. Providing an excellent facility, great rates and most of all a tremendous ear for detail, Scott has been a huge help to the process of bringing our songs to their full potential. Scott is a patient collaborator, and most importantly a kind person, which made the process fun and fulfilling.”
“The best part about having recorded at Studio FMP was the level of comfort in the studio. I didn’t have to shy away from exploring my own sonic horizons and Scott has the sensibility to encourage that, ultimately bringing out the best possible performance.”
