MediaBrain specializes in all things audio with some limited video production capability. Bands, solo artists, and songwriters will feel right at home, though we provide so much more than music production alone. As an independent record label, we will show you how to manage distribution and marketing once your album is released. Perhaps your business needs to record a radio spot to reach new customers. Need a jingle or script for that? No problem. We write and perform, too. Or maybe your school or church would like to capture the memory of a band, orchestra, chorus, or worship team performance. These projects can make great fundraisers. Ask us how! Hosting a seminar or convention? MediaBrain can document and preserve all of the important elements. Our spoken word services are great for podcasts or audio books, too. Video producers will love what we can do to enhance their soundtracks. We even have the tools for audio analysis should you want to do some forensic CSI sleuthing! If it has anything to do with audio, MediaBrain has the tools and the talent!

We have some really cool toys, but our greatest asset is the talent running the desk. Producer and chief-engineer Matt Ballenger is a true musician-producer that has spent time on both sides of the glass. As a graduate of the University of Kentucky with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering with Mathematics Minor and an accomplished inventor credited with 33 patents by the USPTO, Matt has a firm grasp on the technical side of acoustic physics and audio signal processing. But as an active musician, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and recording artist with Steve Sizemore Group, he also identifies with the artist’s perspective. Recording is a balance between science and art, so at MediaBrain Records your projects are in very capable hands.
MediaBrain’s reputation rests on the quality of our work and our focus on our clients. Every project is personalized, and your satisfaction is a priority.
