About

Located in Northern New Jersey, SMB Recordings is a private, home recording facility with an abundant collection of boutique, high-end recording gear that combines great analog sound with a modern digital workflow.

OUR GOAL IS TO CREATE AND CAPTURE UNIQUE ORIGINAL MUSIC AND AUDIO WITH THE BEST SOUND POSSIBLE—ONE THAT’S RIGHT FOR THE SONG, THE ARTIST AND THE PROJECT.

The studio is owned and operated by Stephen Michael Babula—an independent artist and musician who became infatuated with the recording process early on from his time spent recording in various local studios. Primarily a self-taught recordist, Stephen has spent the past decade learning the art of recording and mixing through hands-on experience with other local artists as well as completing a mentorship program in a professional studio environment. 

"Our overall recording philosophy is that it is not just about the gear we use, but about how we listen and most importantly, how we capture sound that best represents the intended creative vision. A project is never complete until this goal is reached and everyone is happy with the final outcome."
