About Tim Frantz

Tim Frantz, Mountain Dog Musicworks owner, has worked full-time in the music industry for over 25 years as a professional multi-instrumentalist, producer and engineer. He has worked with artists B.J. Thomas, Steve Green, Dann Huff, Bill Gaither and members of the Commodores, America, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Supertramp and Duran Duran.

Tim's philosophy of a recording studio is artist-centered:  "Mountain Dog is a place of accessibility for the nationally known recording artist, as well as the local music enthusiast recording for the first time. The facility has the gear to handle the demands of industry pros, but the studio environment doesn't intimidate or exclude the amateur. Creativity which comes from the heart requires a relaxed atmosphere. Mountain Dog is a comfortable place to make music."
