Mystic Eye Studio is an affordable, inviting, atmospheric sacred studio space located in the Carleton Artist Lofts of St. Paul. It is primarily geared toward indie folk and rock singer-songwriters/bands and rap artists. Having seriously immersed in audio production the past 4 + years, including recording and releasing my debut album, Beautiful Mind, I'm excited to take all I've learned along the way to facilitate the emergence of other indie artists.

"This guy knows his studio well and is always searching for the best techniques to get the sound you're looking for to create records that will stand the test of time, while having a great time creating them. I love the safe and inviting vibe Todd keeps here and am excited to come back!"                     Pete Widin, Singer-Songwriter
