otherdog
Welcome to the home page of otherdog studio. We are a small audio production (and web design -- haha kidding) studio in Houston, TX. We're mobile sort of, so generally we would come to you, rather than you coming to us. Pretty much - we can do some tracking (including drums) at our location if needed, and we mix here as well. We can also provide guitar re-amping with some fairly monstrous guitar amps and session guitar service in many styles.

You can email us at your own special email address that works to send email to us from you


Here's some stuff we've been working on:

Flying Monkease cover of Dark Hollow:


Russel Garcia made a new video with a song we did the sound (and guitars) for:


Flying Monkease cover of Stooges song:


Chris Lively did a video with the first single from his next release - we did the audio, but not the video - which looks awesome:

We're working on Chris Lively's next release, which I'm really looking forward to - here is a cover he did while we were in the studio (this won't be on the release)
