Testimonials

"Gene Rabbai is a genius at converting rough song ideas into great-sounding demo tracks. He's done quite a few for me over the years and the quality is always excellent, from lead vocals & harmonies to drums, guitars, keys & all the Nashville trimmings like fiddle & pedal steel. I would always recommend Gene and Studio A (now @ SongDemosNashville.com) to SongLink subscribers & others, he's the best!"

"I was introduced to Gene Rabbai in 2000. The way he arranged the raw song and brought out the best in all who contributed to the recording, I was blown away. I never witnessed this at other studios. For 17 years, Gene has been my only choice on all songs I've recorded, both my material and other songwriters I've represented. Gene is multi-talented and knows all aspects of the songwriting-recording process. Gene is also a songwriter, musician, singer and arranger. He stays up to date on all song genres. When it comes to recording, he "feels" the music and has the ability to bring it to life in any genre and time period. I encourage you to let Gene record your next song, it will sound great with "radio ready" quality. I don't trust my songs to anyone else. Gene is absolutely the best."
- Donovan Kundiger | Fresh Breeze Music ASCAP
"Gene & the guys at Studio A (now @ SongDemosNashville.com) really know what they are doing. The backing tracks Gene has created for me via my emails and mp3s sent from here in the UK have always been top-notch, the musicianship and attention to detail is brilliant. The cost is incredibly reasonable for the work put in. I can't recommend highly enough."
- Larry Williams | Music Coordinator, Rhydypenau Primary, Arts Champion for Arts Council of Wales
"Gene has been my go-to demo service for over 20 years. The reason I return all the time is that I get superb demos at a competitive price. With a little touch of magic Gene and his team of fantastic singers and musicians manage to turn my simple worktapes into stunning, state-of-the-art demos. The country music industry is increasing competitive these days and so I need great realizations of my songs to compete in the market place but thanks to Gene and Studio A (now @ SongDemosNashville.com) I have managed to obtain many cuts from his demos over the years. "
- Jon Philibert |songwriter and owner of I Love Music Ltd, London, England.
"Gene Rabbai and Studio A (now @ SongDemosNashville.com) have been a huge part my music business both as a writer and recording artist. I have sent him some pretty rough writers demo's and he's always come back to me with just what I've needed from a simple keys and strings track to full production. He's also co-produced or been a large part of my full cd projects where they have ended up on charts along side some of the top names and studios in the business. I HIGHLY recommend Gene and Studio A for any of your demo needs."
- Alison Joy Williams | songwriter, singer, producer
"Gene and his staff at Studio A (now @ SongDemosNashville.com) are fantastic in producing solid, professional demo tapes of original songs. I was referred to him several years back and was so impressed with his skills that I specifically returned to him many times over he years to record new musical material of different genres. He works at a very fast pace, is very accessible and I always found his rates to be extremely reasonable and affordable. Most importantly he really has a talent for bringing a song to life. I would highly recommend him to any writer or artist seeking to record high quality demos of their work."
- L. Jones | Songwriter
