“John was extraordinarily responsive to my needs, which were both conventional (chamber music recording) and idiosyncratic (amplification of artist easels). It was a pleasure to work with him; I found him not only competent, but thoughtful, insightful, resourceful, and friendly.”
Mark Applebaum, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Composition, Stanford University

“It’s rare to find an artist able to apply their skills equally across a wide variety of genres. John is at home working with pop, classical, and experimental. For the latter, he’s got the kind of fascination that helps fan others’ creative spark.”
Chris Chafe, Director, Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics
Professor of Music, Stanford University


“John D.S. Adams knows how music should sound and also knows how to help musicians make good music. His easy going efficiency helps make the studio a friendly and productive space.”
