ames2 1993-1995


In 2010, after 16 years in two other studio spaces in Amesbury and Newburyport producing folk, roots and singer-songwriter projects of all descriptions, Tom Eaton built UNS as a permanent home for his equipment and his production projects.

Shortly after UNS was "completed" (these things never seem to be complete) Tom began spending half his time working alongside Will Ackerman at Imaginary Road Studios in Windham County, Vermont, as Will's chief engineer and co-producer. As a former and closet synthesizer nut it was an opportunity of a lifetime for Tom to return to the instrumental world that had brought him to music in the first place. To be able to work alongside Will who literally defined the instrumental "new age" music genre with his Windham Hill record label was simply too good to pass up.

But the equipment at UNS got lonely when Tom was away, so Brett Boland kindly agreed to turn some knobs and give the speakers some love while Tom is in the green mountain state.

The amazing Huck Bennert also engineers here when schedule and projects allow.

If you'd like to talk to one of us about a project at UNS, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
