“Barry’s the rarest thing of all: an artist who makes a living from his art. His melodic, haunting scores for my independent short films and features have added so much to my production values and I would highly, highly recommend his work to anyone. He is a versatile and always professional musician.”
Jared Gordon (Winter Twilight Productions)

“I have known and worked with Barry Hartglass for over 10 years. Some of my favorite recording sessions and best sounding tracks have taken place at his studio in Carmel, NY. Barry is a stickler for high quality, clean sound and detailed engineering. He is also a composer, bassist, pianist, saxophonist and producer which means he has a thorough knowledge of all aspects of the recording process and can therefore bring a deep understanding to every musical situation. I highly recommend Barry for any project, regardless of style. He will serve your recording needs beyond expectation.”
