A Word from Tony...
I founded Southern Drive Records to give artist honest direction and consultation. I've been in the Christian Music Industry for a long time as a singer, songwriter, and producer.
I'm committed to being open and honest with every artist I work with. I've learned every artist has different goals and that's why I'd like to talk to you prior to deciding what recording package is best.
We provide the highest quality at a fair price. We're not like others who will promise you the world, take your money, and disappear. If you're not ready to record, I'll tell you and I'll work with you to get you ready.
It all starts with GREAT SONGS! If you're a writer, we can make your tunes sound awesome! If you need songs, we can you help find the right tunes for you.
Perhaps what sets us apart is our commitment to excellence in every part of the process! I answer my phone, return voicemail, email and texts, and most importantly WE DO WHAT WE SAY WE'RE GOING TO DO!
Southern Drive Records has partnered with seasoned veteran Robb Tripp at The Family Room Recording Studios in Gallatin, TN (just outside of Nashville). Robb has been a part of Dove Award and Grammy Award winning recordings across the years. His expertise and creativity is second to none. You'll enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and have a blast making the best music you've ever made with the best pickers in Nashville! - Tony
