Working with Jim is always fun and inspiring! He's not only talented but genuine, wants people to do their best, and is outstanding at getting to know you and bringing out all the great stuff.  Besides...the guy has got a set of ears like nobody's business!!!"                               


Tracy Celaya, Tre Ja Vu


"Soundwaves Recording Studio is a legit pro studio. James Linton is an absolute true pro. Thank you so much for making my dream a reality. My expectations were wildly exceeded. I could fill up a book with great things to say about Jim and his studio. Jim made me feel comfortable from day one and he really has an artistic vision. We created something great; something I'll be proud of for years to come. See you on tour."

"Jimmyboy is my brother and I love him. His opinion is one of few I value when it comes to my music and his involvement in my projects is paramount. He's a blessing to say the least!"

"Jim is fair, fun, and incredibly talented! Working with him was a great experience, and he truly cares about the music and the artists he works with."                                     


Jamie Maletz, BackStage the Musical


" I've worked in a lot of studios with a lot of producers and engineers, but I've never had an outstanding recording experience like we had with Jim. And on top of that, its the best sounding record I've ever been a part of. Best of all though, is that we didn't just walk away with a great record, we walked away with a new friend."


Michael Callahan, Mechanical Hall A


" 'That isn't possible,' are words that do not exist in Jim's musical vocabulary. Like he says, 'We have to create! It flows through our blood and lives in our bones, we can't help it!' I don't know what I would do without him. Jim has been the channel through which God has allowed my creativity to flourish."

"I have never felt as comfortable and welcome in a studio in all my years of recording than I have at Soundwaves. Jim has a true passion for what he does. As an artist, I really get the sense he cares about producing the best results possible. Not only to satisfy his customers, but also to satisfy his own self- conscious to know he has put in as much effort as the artist. Jim's brilliant personality is matched by his technical prowess as an audio engineer. In short, he really knows what he's doing! I trust his direction and rely on his guidance to make my music complete and unique. I am fortunate to have Jim as a part of my life and music  career."   


Patrick Wright, Shy's Limit


"Pure Quality plus friends for life. James and his wife Rebecca are the Bomb. My last project,
Double Portion, was a blast to do here. I highly recommend anyone who loves to record any kind of music. "

"Jim is the man. He showed our band things we never even knew existed. And he did them quick, really knows his stuff. Night and day difference from the last studio experience we had."

To top it all off, he's just a really cool person.The Olson family can't say enough good things about Soundwaves Recording Studio. YOU ROCK, JIM LINTON!!"

"Five of my children (GrimisS & Oblivious) have recorded with Jim, and he has been a stellar influence, mentor, and friend to them all. I have had the honor of sitting in his studio and watching him coax the very best out of each of them, all while engaging them with his great wit, treating them as peers, and MASTERFULLY producing their music. I wish there were more than 5 stars here."

His dedication to excellence in music and sound is unmatched. Jim is a force to be reckoned with and I am honored to have worked with him; I certainly hope it won't be the last time!

"Jim is absolutely amazing. I'm so glad I've had the opportunity to work with him. I'll never forget the silly jokes, silly accents, and our awesome talks that have helped me believe more in myself. He has helped me make my music so much more than I thought it could be. When he let me into his studio, he let me into his family. Jim has done so much more for me than I can put into words. I am so grateful and will forever cherish the friendship that I have with him."
