" Working with Will Ackerman at Imaginary Road Studios was an honor and a pleasure! While affable (and with a great sense of humor), Will is sharply attuned to the highest quality and detail. Search elsewhere for the typical big-time producer ego. He’s an unusual blend of meticulous and laid back, a watchdog for musical excellence without a lot of barking. It was clear from day one that Will was in our court to help us make the very best record possible.
The property the studio sits on is a combination of Better Homes & Gardens and a Nature preserve, a pastoral haven in the rolling hills outside Brattleboro, VT. I can’t think of better surroundings to create music in! "
There has been no single greater influence upon me as Will Ackerman… as a producer he has conjured from my writing and performance capabilities nuances and emotions that I was not even aware existed let alone believed I could capture. He does this (what appears) effortlessly and with a wry smile that tenderly suggests “I told you so”. Ackerman is a staggering example of a true musical voice and visionary unparalleled in his abilities. Working with him has been one of the most tremendous honors of my life.
" It's a challenge to find just the right elements that enable an artist to create a musical statement from a few rough ideas. Capturing them with clarity and authenticity so they may be shared for years to come is an even greater challenge. Will Ackerman achieves precisely that. This magical symbiosis lies in not merely his technical expertise [acquired honing his craft over more than thirty years], but in his ability to literally inhabit a melody and navigate a rhythm in order to reproduce music worthy of your artistic vision. He has produced a body of work that has exceeded all of my expectations. "
