    Philly Sound Studios (215) 551-1800


    My name is Drew Raison, I live to make and record great music. A big part of my life is spent working directly with artists assisting in the creation of their original material. Another big part is mixing music for radio and the world. In either case, I always have music going in my ears which, in turn, feeds my creative soul. Whether in the control room at Philly Sound Studios or in my specialized mixing and tracking room tucked away in the woods, I'm consumed by music in simply the best way.

    The business side of my life is a perfect balance to the creative side. In addition to managing the Philly studio and doing mixes, I consult for entertainers, artists, production folk and other studios. I also invest in my strategic partnerships, especially those who can offer benefit to my clients. From radio stations, production and management companies to business coaches, graphic and web designers, I can create or discover a solution quickly and efficiently. I also stay active teaching audio production to individuals interested in advancing their careers. Over the decades, I've taught dozens and dozens of students, many who have hit high peaks in the production world.
