Smart Boy Studios is a small studio in Dayton, OH. The goal of SBS is to provide any and all artists affordable recording, mixing, mastering, and distribution services. 

The studio started in Lima, OH, in a bedroom as a young man's hobby. The studio eventually moved to Indianapolis, IN, to follow our owner/engineer's education and career path. Our time in Indy exposed us to many great artists, musicians, industry professionals, and great experience.

Now in the center point of Indy, Lima, Columbus, and Cincinnati, Smart Boy Studios is here to provide top quality audio services to the heart of the midwest. 

Ash Matthews - Lead Engineer/Producer

Musician since a child, Ash combined his passion for computers with his dedication to music to by studying audio technology. Recording his own bands on the most modest of setups, he found a desire to capture performances and manipulate those recordings. This was the birth of Smart Boy Studios.

His first real client, Fenix The Answer, became his best friend. From there, Ash began to study and practice the the art of mixing like a religion. Eventually attending college for Computer Science and Computer Engineering, he minored in Recording Industry Studies to keep learning and boosting his knowledge and skills.
