Founded in 2004, Small House Creative has been growing art and empowering artists for over a decade. Our Pro Tools HDX-based studio features an enviable collection of some of the world's most sought after boutique analog hardware and digital processing units. Having run a non-profit record label for many years, we continue our commitment to a philosophy of compassionate pricing -- striving to keep high quality audio services affordable for all.

We believe that the best audio gear and services should not just be available to the "one percent," but accessible to artists from all backgrounds and socio-economic groups. Our mix and mastering suite is based in Boulder, Colorado, and we regularly offer scholarships to low income earners and activists, and discounted services to registered charities.
