Songs really are like a form of time travel because they really have moved forward in a bubble. Everyone who's connected with it, the studio's gone, the musicians are gone, and the only thing that's left is this recording which was only about a three minute period maybe 70 years ago. ~ Tom Waits

Patrick Storey – Co Owner
Chief Engineer - Pat has been with Audio Lab since 2004, and has owned and operated studios for over 30 years in Boise and in Atlanta, Georgia.

He is also skilled in guitar and bass setup and intonation correction.
Steve Fulton – Co-Founder – Co-owner
Steve was an original partner with Todd Dunnigan from the beginnings of Audio Lab. When Todd moved on to other ventures Steve continued the studio until Pat came on as a full partner in 2004.
Steve's forte is producing and engineering, combining his many years of music composing and writing with his engineering abilities. This allows for a 'One-Stop-Shop' experience for clients that need music produced under their original compositions where vocal and minimal instrumentation require more production. He is a very active performing artist as well.
Steve is responsible for nearly 400 albums since he started engineering and producing.
