” Todd Boston is an extraordinary producer and multi-instrumentalist musician! Not only does he have the technical expertise, professionalism, and vast knowledge of the music industry, he also brings the fullness of his heart and depth of devotion to the project.
He has the ability to hold and expand the vision of the project with the artist so that one feels carried and supported the whole way through.
I am still in awe at the exquisite beauty that we created together for the “Prayers for the Water” album. And Magic Cottage Studios is just that. Pure magic! Tucked away in the forest next to a little creek and lots of wildlife. The whole experience is Divine! But wait, it gets better!
Todd’s beautiful wife Andrea is also on team Magic Cottage. Not only is she the hostess with the mostess who treats the artists like royalty, she is an exceptional graphic designer whose design work for the album art is inspired by her being steeped in the essence of the music as it is being created. Her work is clean and clear, refined and artistic.
I’m completely delighted by the whole experience! I would recommend Andrea as graphic designer and Todd as a recording engineer and producer to any musician who is ready to allow the heart of the music to show them the way! “
