Here’s just a sample of what artists are saying after working with me!

“I would highly recommend Full Circle for any and all professional recording needs! Top notch gear, relaxed, comfortable and creative atmosphere, clean, neat, and organized. A lot of professional studios are great, but what sets Full Circle apart is Dan “Dream” Uphoff. Dan is easily the most knowledgeable and skilled engineers/producers I have had the privilege to work with. Dan has a great demeanor and is a joy to work with. Skilled, talented, knowledgeable and professional don’t always equal easy to work with, a good personality and sense of humor, but in this case they do! Patient, and supportive when you’re stuck or not as prepared as you should have been, yet honest when something just doesn’t work. No BS, just a great professional creative environment. Full Circle will make your recording experience, and finished product amazing!

“Full circle is an awesome place to record!! Dan is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and super cool to work with. I recently recorded a few songs and could not have been happier with the end result. Dan does a great job at bringing everything together and is a beast of an engineer (and a musician). He is efficient with your time and also creates a really comfortable environment to work in. I will def come back for future projects and would highly recommend this shop to anyone who is serious about the quality of their music work.”

“I highly recommend Full Circle Recording! They go above and beyond what you would expect. Dan is amazing and quick at what he does. He puts the time and effort into helping with all the production needs, from producing, adding additional layers for dynamics, to everything in between. And his ideas are awesome. He truly seems to care about the project that he is working on. Dan also played drums and other instruments on my EP. Matt played electric guitars on the EP. I can’t say enough about these guys. So talented, easy to work with and a joy to be around. GO HERE for your next project! I know I will!!”

★★★★★

“Full Circle Recording is a top shelf studio. The facility and accommodations are great and Dan is very easy with which to work.He offers timely and constructive input in all areas of your recording project. I have tracked drums on three different occasions at Full Circle. Each time I go in with a higher confidence because I know that Dan is in my corner and that he will not allow me or [my band] to ‘settle’ on our performance.”

★★★★★

“Phenomenal experience. Dan’s the best – he works with such diligence and attention to detail. He really wants to make sure his client is happy. He’s a great engineer and musician who was able to adapt to feedback very aptly and know the steps to take in order to capture a vibe or energy the music should portray. Would recommend him to any band, great studio!”

★★★★★

“From scratch track through final product they were with us every step of the way, making sure every track reached its full potential and that the process remained productive and fun but also organized and timely. They had an amazing ability for hearing what was going on in our heads and helping us make it a reality. They stayed true to our sound and feel while making awesome creative suggestions along the way so we got to a place beyond what we were hoping for. I would recommend working with them 110%.”

★★★★★

“From start to finish Full Circle Recording made the process fun and easy, but also always professional! You could tell Dan really cared about how the music came across from OUR perspective. He made sure our final product was polished better than we could’ve hoped for! It was an absolute pleasure and pleasant surprise to find someone who could get what we were hearing in our heads translated into what people are hearing in their ears! I can’t imagine us working with anyone else right now.”

★★★★★

“Dan is astounding; Quietly orchestrating a digital masterpiece of our individual God given talents. His professionalism and standards of perfection are exceptional. Feeling the song, encouraging and gently directing all of us to shape the dynamics, Dan is an amazing blessing. (And the studio is beautiful and relaxing…I could live there!!)”

★★★★★

“Wow! Just wow! We did a full length album at Full Circle Recording and let me just say EVERYTHING about the experience was just stellar – well worth the price for all they provide! Things were done on time every time. Dan & Matt are not only extraordinary musicians, arrangers, producers and engineers they are some of the finest and funnest human beings to spend time with. Dan played drums on our project and Matt covered the bass guitar. We couldn’t be more pleased. These guys have been locking the groove together since high school. The studio is well equipped, comfortable and accommodating. We will work with Full Circle again. I’m sure of that!”

★★★★★

Schedule your project’s next session with Dan Uphoff and his team without hesitation.”

Dan is efficient with your time being both highly a skilled recording engineer and musician offering a valuable ear to your work. Everything from start to finish was always smooth and seamless!”

★★★★★

“I’ve recorded about 10 tracks with Dan so far, and am never disappointed. He is timely, gives great advice while the session is going on, and is a true musician. His expertise is illustrated all over the tracks, especially if you build them from the ground up. He doesn’t just throw it together, he takes his time and cares.”

★★★★★

“I have been coming to Full Circle for a few years now for the consistent professionalism and quality. Working with Dan is always great and he has such an amazing ear for music. The finished product always exceeds my expectations. No matter where my career takes me, full circle will always be that hidden gem I got in my back pocket.”

★★★★★

We’ve recorded with Dan for years. Working with him has always been the ‘other’ member of the band and creative process. It wouldn’t make sense for us to ever record with anyone else.

Full Circle Recording is my only choice for laying down serious music work. Great sound and engineering there and a good atmosphere to concentrate in. Dan does stellar work.”

This is the best studio I have ever worked with. Beautiful space and Dan gets the work perfect. The work is done so fast and well. I will be coming back time and time again!”

“Dan and his team were awesome to work with. He produced and recorded our first album a few years ago at Full Circle. I continue to get compliments on the sound quality and over all professional polish of the album. He has a great ear and brought super great ideas to the table as the project progressed. He’s a cheerleader when he needs to be and a critic when it’s necessary. We will work with him again… We had a super experience!”

★★★★★

“A recording gem located in central VA. Industry standard recording booth and mixing room. Plenty of options. Amazing engineering with a flexible, creative and comfortable environment to work on your craft. Thanks to full circle for allowing me to create at their studio and bring my vision to life. 5 Star quality!”
