“Sean Flora was absolutely amazing and got such a burly, in your face sound for us I think we were all stunned on the first playback. My jaw actually dropped. He is a master with guitar tone and really got the most out of each and every song.”
— Allen Hunter- The EELS; Kleveland
“I’ve never gotten a better sound in the studio in my life. Each mic compliments the other for a complete full and rich sound. Our engineer Sean Flora has been very easy to work with and really knows what he’s doing. He’s got great ears, which is crucial. Just being a gear geek doesn’t make anyone a good engineer.”
— David Valdez, Jazz Saxophonist
The song sounds so amazing with what you did. I’m inspired by your work. You’ve got skills like a level 13 wizard.
— Daniel Riddle, King Black Acid
