WE LOVE OUR CLIENTS
And they seem to really like us, too. We are very grateful to have 5-stars on Google, Yelp and Thumbtack. Even more humbling is the growing collection of personal testimonials from our artists! Read on for some of the thoughtful accolades, compliments, and gratitude we've received.
Owen is a genius and a wizard at his craft. He took every song on my album to a level that surpassed my every expectation!
From the beginning they expressed an ideal of collaboration, all while being respectful of the song, instrumentation, and my voice, always trying to frame and portray them in the best way possible. I brought in a song I had been stuck on for a little over a year and within two hours, they helped shape and finish the song, streamlining the story line, and spicing up the tonality with different chord inversions.
[Owen] never overbearingly takes over an artist's project, but rather works alongside the artist's strengths to create artistic yet commercial pieces of work which could easily be played next to any major label artist on the radio while simultaneously keeping the artist's identity intact.

Overall, what mattered to me the most was an environment I looked forward to creating in and with people I felt undoubtedly had the know-how to produce an album of the same quality you can hear on the radio. F5 helped achieve this beyond my wildest dreams.
Owen is the true renaissance man of music; he excels as a writer, producer, engineer, and has worked tirelessly to make every element of our project shine.
DJ's across the midwest comment on how great the tracks sound and we NEVER have a problem getting them on the radio. As Devon's manager and mother, I could not recommend F5 highly enough to anyone looking to produce an independent album here in the Twin Cities.
We toured five studios in the Twin Cities and stopped the moment we walked into F5 SoundHouse and met Owen Sartori and Davide Raso... Being musicians as well as producers, these guys had so much to offer beyond recording.
Owen and Davide were easy to relate to and put me immediately at ease, and we ended up writing two amazing, heartfelt songs.
I always felt my vision was heard and guided the very best way for final results. They take the time to know clients and coach them thru any insecurities or concerns in a patient and genuine way.

They showed me that everything they did went beyond the concept of the business and was more into the passion side of it.
They work on collaborating with their artists and making the songs the best they can be without changing them into something they are not. F5 SoundHouse is my second home and the place to record if you are passionate about music.
Professional, talented and dedicated producers staff F5 SoundHouse. I couldn't have chosen a better facility and crew to put together my first full-length album. Bonus: Everyone there is a stellar musician. Highly recommended!
I have always been protective of my music. I guess I never found anyone able to understand what kind of artist I could be and develop my ideas to their full potential. Then I had the chance to speak to Davide and Owen. They took my ideas over and turn them into all I could possibly wish for in a song. I never thought that could happen.
We never felt like just “a job,” our concerns were never too small for the team. We felt heard, cared for and happy! The experience we had with Owen, Davide and the crew is one that has opened many doors for us and we will be forever grateful for the impact they had in our musical career!
Owen and Davide are awesome to work with - professional, above and beyond helpful, and have a knack for understanding what you want/need! I came in with a small project and some very rough home recordings and they were able to turn it into an EP I am so happy with! Definitely recommend checking them out.
Working with F5 Sound House has been a positive experience all around. They have the knowledge and experience to make you sound better then you actually are. They’re not my first choice for recording in Minneapolis/St.Paul, they’re my ONLY choice.
F5 is not just a recording studio, they are musical mentors, musicians, and great songwriters. My wife and I just finished up an EP with them and we couldn't be more impressed with the results! Owen and Davide are the only team for us in our songwriting and recording endeavors.
