Neumann Microphone




Good Danny's is the creative space and studio of producer, engineer and mixer Danny Reisch. Danny has nearly 2 decades of production/engineering experience, has been on over a dozen world tours drumming for Shearwater and Other Lives and holds a Bachelor of Music from Texas State University. The studio is a culmination of a lifelong love for writing and recording music. It has grown organically one instrument, one pedal and one tape machine at a time over the past 20 years.

Our focus on achieving great results has lead to creating and cultivating a comfortable, relaxed working environment. Every instrument in the studio is always mic'd up, every keyboard is always patched, and every line imaginable is already run. We aim to make the engineering aspect seamless and invisible in favor of greater focus on part writing, arrangement and creative production design. We view the studio itself as an instrument and this one is always ready to be played.

"...from [Good Danny's], Shearwater have made something spacious and expansive enough to feel conjured from the costly confines of a million-dollar studio like Abbey Road or Electric Lady."


The studio is home to several outside freelance producers/engineers and a great team of assistants and interns. Rates are dependent on whom you are working with. Please inquire via the contact page. 


Lockhart is located 30 miles southeast of downtown Austin. It is a quick and peaceful trip out to the country for those looking to escape and focus while recording. 


The Austin airport is 15-20 minutes from Lockhart. We host many bands who travel to come work with us. Lodging is available on-site for an additional nightly fee. For larger groups we can recommend a number of trusted Airbnbs, hotels or bed and breakfasts.
