"When Anthony Santo produces a record he really develops the artist. Every artist he produces has a record that sets them apart from 99% of the stuff that winds up on my desk. If you're serious about having a legitimate shot in this business, seek Anthony Santo out, bug him until he does your record, then follow everything he says."
-Warner Music Group
"To work with Anthony Lopardo and all the other members of killingsworth studios was possibly the best decision that we could have made as a band. The dedication, long hours and musical insight that came from the staff at killingsworth made us realize how much we can do as a band. Each project that Anthony starts, he really puts his full attention and dedication into, to make every record as awesome as it possibly can be. As a band we wouldn’t even think to record at any other studio for our next record."
Matthew Carly Guitarest for Elleray Park
My name is Ryan Taylor and my band Men Like Gods recorded a 6 song EP with Anthoney Lopardo, Ray Marte, and Ryan Hayes. Me and the rest of the band had a great experience with these guys and the studio in general. The equipment was fucking awesome. and the guys were really good producers. they didnt rush us and they really put a lot of time into our music to make it sound as good as possible. Anthony actually sat down with us and helped write harmonies for the guitar parts and kept giving us ideas to help enhance our sound. Ray also helped a shit load and like hand placed some of the fast double bass to make it tighter. Killingswoth is just an all around great studio

"I've had the pleasure of working with Anthony Santonocito on a number of projects. He has the musical gift of being able to help bands find their sound, which has led to the production of great music. I'd recommend Anthony's producing services to any artist looking for a top level producer."
-The Davis, Lewitt, Shapiro, & Hayes Law Firm
"If anyone is looking for a quality producer there's no need to look any further than Anthony Santo - you can go into the studio humming 3 notes and come out with a hit record - not only does he have an ear for what works he also has the hands on experience being a former signed artist himself - In today's changing industry he doesn't waste an artists time or money letting them just come in and record - he cares about every track and offers sound advise and guidance about what does and doesn't work musically - A Super producer in the making - I'm proud to call him friend and will recommend Anthony Santo and the great staff at Killingsworth NY to whoever asks (and whoever doesn't either)"
-MTV Networks Talent Manager
"Working with Anthony Lopardo has drastically improved the overall sound of our band. Recording at Killingsworth is a learning experience for sure because producers there are so musically talented and driven. If you're looking to record in a state of the art and extremely chill studio, come to Long Island. This was my 2nd time recording with Anthony Lopardo and I am now convinced that Killingsworth is going to make its way to the top of the food chain. Our EP far exceeded any expectations that we had for it."

"Anthony Santo gets the most out of your band. His work is pro."
-President of One Eleven Records
in early december my band Archon November recorded our demo with these guys and we couldnt be happier. We approach people with our demo and as soon as they hear the first 15 secs they are blown away by the quality. Anthony and Ray did an amazing job of bringing the songs to a proffesional level that we never thought would be possible. Of course not to mention working with these guys is an experience in and of itself. Ive never seen two people more commited to a project before in my life. They definitely go the extra mile for their clients. For the inexperienced musicians looking to record. Ray and Anthony display a Nun like patience,trying to help and work with you every step of the way, always making creative suggestians that make the music your playing more cohesive. For the experienced musician looking to record its dumb not to come here. Why not have sound quality that matches your musical ability? The idea is to turn heads when people hear your music and thats what we got with Ant
In a business where most look to take your money, get your record done and boot you the hell outta there. Anthony Santo and the other professionals at Killingsworth are the exact opposite and represent the good in the music industry. Having worked with Anthony Santo, Tomas Costanza, Anthony Lopardo and a number of the other guys at Killingsworth on multiple projects, I can say the experience we've had was nothing short of awesome. The quality and professionalism that we received by far surpassed any expectations we had. In short, for your next record, you need to go to Anthony Santo and get it done right by someone who actually cares.

"Working at Killingsworth is one of the best decisions me and the rest of my band mates have ever made. Anthony Lopardo is one of the easiest guys to work with. Anybody looking for a good price with great production should call him immediately. "
Maxx Jacobs Praetorin
"Anthony Santo and the NY staff are all very professional, and accommodating. Santo is a great producer, writer, and engineer. His ear for music and production is nothing short of amazing. I would highly recommend Santo & Killingsworth Studios to anyone looking for a studio with a great atmosphere, great staff, and of course a great finished product!"
"It is very difficult to find a producer who takes the time to understand what you are about as a band, and is able to give the technical and creative suggestions that bring your songs to the next level. There is a definite difference between a true producer, and a dude who just stands at the console and presses record.
Anthony Lopardo of Killingsworth Recording Company approaches every band with an open mind, ready to capture the sound you always imagined. He works tirelessly to get the best take from you, all while introducing ideas that capitalize on your biggest strengths. Bringing a well-rounded skill set to the table, Anthony can fill in on any instrument. Most importantly, Anthony understands that you know your band and your sound best, so he never insists on having his way.I am sure you can find a cheaper recording deal with someone who’s there to get you in and out as quickly as possible. You won’t find anyone who will work harder than Anthony did for Aqua Cherry."

Killingsworth has helped put our music on the map. Anthony Santo is an incredible producer and if you want to make your music go from being ok to great. I strongly recommend working with Anthony Santo at Killingsworth Studios
Our Experience with KillingsWorth Recording in Farmingdale, NY was nothing short of amazing! We're a band from Denver, Co and they made the out of town experience feel like home. Our Producer was Anthony Lopardo, who's music knowledge can seem infinite and our Co-Pro Ray Marte 7 beat master M.D. These guys understand music at its best and worst. What makes every great record great is the passion put into it from band and producers both and they have the passion needed (that most assholes who charge out the ass to record don't). They have great ideas to make all their recordings have there own unique sound. Seriously these guys mean business when it comes to making kick ass records. The recording environment was very chill and none hostel, which is always appreciated. If your serious about the music your playing, this is a great place to record. They give a damn about the music not just a pay check and the price is great too!!! We love these guys
"I can't even begin to explain the great experience i had working with these guys at Killingsworth. I knew once we decided to work with Santo and Tomas, we were taking the right step in advancing our music career. The recording process was second to none. Santo has a great ear, and is able to take good ideas and make them fantastic. Our first record with Killingsworth helped us gain the credibility and buzz to get our feet wet in the music industry."
Recording at Killingsworth and with Anthony Lopardo was the best move for our band. Anthony is a very talented guy who can really put a edge to your music and make it sound amazing! His influence was very helpful as well as his recording skills. While I recorded at Killingsworth it
had an amazing vibe, many laughs were shared with everyone while recording. The studio was very clean brand new and very nice. The staff is very talented as well. The equipment and the gear at the studio was very professional well equipped to produce the finest Quality. Anthony really took his time with us to hear us out as a band to get the sound we all wanted. This was my first time recording with anthony and i think after that it all spoke for it self. i will always continue
to work with him for every project i do no matter what the musical
- Richie Losito
"It’s hard to put into only a few words the experience we had while recording our debut record at Killingsworth. It was a time filled with a whirlwind of emotion, excitement, fear and hard work all wrapped into one. Tomas Costanza, Anthony Santonocito, Keith Cooper and all the other professionals at Killingsworth taught us an immense amount about the music industry as a whole, while at the same time pushing us to strive towards and surpass what we thought were our best musical and personal capabilities."
-This Years Anthem (Danbury, CT)
"Anthony Lopardo is a Great producer was a pleasure to work with has lots of knowledge of music and can help you get the best sounding recordings you can imagine. He is one of the chillest producers i have ever met has a great sense of humor and on top of that he gets the job done.

-Recorded June 2009 Killingsworth New York
Anthony was our first Producer and produced our first E.P. We are definetly going back to work with him again. Being that we are all pretty young we figured we would be taken advantage of, but not at all. We were treated as proffessionals and as every customer should be. He gave us the same quality and effort in our music as the other recordings hes done. At no point during our recording procsess did we feel we made a bad descision by choosing him. We recorded with top of the line equipment that you would see your favorite artists using. The Studio it self is Brand new, clean, and ready for records to be made. Theres such a good vibe in the studio as your recording too. He's very paitient and confident. Also no matter what genre you are hes flexible and expirienced enough in his profession to mold to your needs. We definetley recommend him to anyone looking to record an album. We wouldnt waste our time lying on his behalf we seriously meant everyword.
