Matt has been recording bands since middle school when a friends Dad lent him a Tascam 4trk cassette recorder. After a few years of upgrades and a high school with a growing studio program, he landed at Five Towns College and eventually Sabella in 2011.


Matt has been lucky enough to work with Jack Douglas (John Lennon, Aerosmith) Randy Blythe, Mike Portnoy, Alex Skolnick, Dave Ellefson and more. 


David began engineering at 14 years old when he started recording friends and local bands. It wasn't long before people started asking to work with him due to his friendly and fun demeanor and ability to get exactly what his clients are looking for. In addition to engineering, David plays the guitar, bass, piano, and drums.

After graduating from Five Towns College with a degree in Business Management and a concentration in Audio Recording Technology, he spent most of his time here at Sabella Studios absorbing all the knowledge and experience of studio owner and producer Jim Sabella.
