Raptor Painting c.jpg

Raptor Studios (a recording facility) and Barking Dog Records (a recording label) was a family business built and based out of our home in south Fargo ND from 1995 - 2011. I was the recording engineer. My third wife, Linda Boyd, was essentially the business manager. Knowing I would work extremely long hours, the plan was to create a first rate, yet client-affordable facility at home so that I could be part of our children’s lives as they grew up.

Raptor Studio artists were clients who used our facility to create everything from full-blown CD projects, to EPs, and personal demos.
