Nestled in the quiet suburb of Loevenstein in Cape Town situated on the Plattekloof Hill overlooking the Northern Suburbs, Mahogany Recording Studio aims to make music for YOU!

Since 2008 we have produced music for established artists locally and abroad, theatre productions, television shows and everything in between. We love working on the big stuff but our true joy comes from making that little melody in your head come to life…whether it comes in the form of a guitar/vocal track or a full-blown big band arrangement, we will make it happen…

“…I just love making music! I love making the dreams come true for a singer with a thought of a melody with three chords all the way to doing full-blown Big Band Jazz arrangements! I’m lucky to be able to bring their musical ideas to life and since I don’t know everything I welcome the opportunity to learn constantly!”
