"The final product far exceeded my expectations!"
"I had the pleasure of recording my cd at Shorefire Recording studios. Joseph DeMaio runs a very professional studio, a true master engineer and an even keeled temper made it a fun & exciting experience. The final product far exceeded my expectations! Excellent dollar value, I will always do my future recordings at Shorefire!"

"It was truly a great experience and I would love to do it again..."
"I produced a record last March at the Jersey Shore with a band I had never met, in a studio I knew nothing about, with an engineer I had never met before, and Joey DeMaio was the engineer. It was truly a great experience and I would love to do it again. Great work Joey. I need to book myself back there with you."
"I traveled nine and half thousand miles from Australia..."
"In September 2014 I traveled nine and half thousand miles from Australia and spent 11 days recording my second album at Shorefire Recording Studio, Long Branch, NJ. Owner and Engineer Joey DeMaio has over many years pieced together a huge range of studio equipment which is almost unrivaled and he's got the skills to back it all up! Thanks for the laughs and a great record I'm immensely proud of!"
"I knew I was in great hands from the moment I walked in..."
"Recently I recorded my 4th studio album at Shorefire Studios in Long Branch NJ, owner Joey DeMaio at the sound and mixing helm, Marc Swersky producing, I knew I was in great hands from the moment I walked in, very welcoming and warm. Everything came together so organically. I cant wait to record my next album there! Kudos to Joey D and Shorefire its a great place to create and record."

"What an amazing experience..."
"What an amazing experience getting to record in a classic studio with it's own soul. I made so many demos in those so called boutique studios, but never got the sound I got at Shorefire! Our new CD "Before & After" is a testimony to the quality we received while producing our CD at Shorefire: Check it out for yourself at"

"What else can I say, I love Shorefire!"
"I've been recording at Shorefire for many years and I'm always amazed at Joe's depth of knowledge regarding recording techniques and gear. I wanted a "Ringo-esque" drum sound and Joe pulls out the exact mics Ringo used at Abbey Road studios, positions them on a 60's era Ludwig kit according to Abbey Road studio specs and then broke out tea towels to put over the drum heads. I mean come on! Where are you gonna find someone with that level of commitment to his craft. The huge tracking room, the Helios console, all the vintage mics and gear...what else can I say, I love Shorefire! I will never go anywhere else."
"Best recording studio and engineer around!!"
"I have recorded many projects with Joe DeMaio at his Shorefire Studio in Long Branch, NJ over the years. The finished product is always excellent and consistently exceeds my expectations! Joe always makes it very easy to create music and he actually contributes his creativity to each session. Great sound, easy to work with and very efficient. Best recording studio and engineer around!!"
" I look forward to more of that kind of success ..."
"Joe DeMaio is the most skilled recording engineer with whom I have ever worked. It's that simple. He is efficient, creative, prepared, passionate, and supportive, yet he never imposes or carries any stress. The gear in the studio is top-shelf and always continues to grow, showing his commitment to making your record the best it can possibly be. Shorefire is a sacred place where beautiful and amazing music is captured to the fullest of its integrity. It's refreshing to find a proprietor who is completely trustworthy and reliable at all times, as well. It has been an honor to have shared a few spaces on the Grammy ballot with him. I look forward to more of that kind of success in keeping my relationship with Joe and Shorefire Recording Studios."
