LIZ VASKO 

Liz doesn’t think music studios need to be pretentious, intimidating, or overpriced to make bands and artists sound good and look good. Her vision for Dog House Music is to create a community for local and touring musicians alike where they can come to feel at home. To find Liz when she’s not at Dog House, check the ski lifts, hiking trails, or the bar. Fact: she’s a wanna-be fiddle player, and she can do the worm.

KENNY VASKO

Kenny cares about you and your music, deeply (creepy). He thinks music studios are incubators for creativity, and can be anything you need them to be: music venue, sound stage, dance hall, gathering space, work station, or comedy club.  If you make music, Kenny wants to listen to it, he wants to meet your band, he wants you to play a live show, and he wants to make you famous. If you’re looking for Kenny, you’ll always find him at Dog House Music.

JOHN REMINGTON

Lead Engineer

John is excited about the way you sound. Do you want a groovy single? A killer EP, an album that takes you to the moon? John Remington will record your music and sit next to you while, together, you mix, master, add, subtract, ponder, consider, and edit your track to craft the result you want. John is a music producer and recording engineer schooled at Berklee College of Music. He wants to offer you all the tools out there to get you what you want; sound reinforcement, monitor mixes, multi-track recording, mixing, mastering, pre-production, post-production, music theory input, songwriting, sound concepts. John has produced many recordings, including Bumfuzzle by Sponkers, Setting Fires by Danielle Angeloni, and Sternum Brainpower by The Savage Detectives. Did you know that John plays over 10 instruments?! Crazy.

KRISTA BRAATEN

Studio Host

Krista is here for YOU! Having a bad day?  Did ya spill coffee all over your new band t-shirt? Did your drummer just quit the band? Krista is ready to greet you at the door and whisk you away into the halls of Dog House to leave it all behind. She's here to get you set up, sound checked, and ready to melt faces. Krista can direct your TikTok video and make sure the lighting is giving you the right vibes. Krista will compliment you with her signature Minnesota charm. When she's not working, you can find Krista out driving around with her pup, Bronson or designing epic custom t-shirts.

ALI MOONEY

Studio Host

Ali eats, sleeps and breathes music. From her first concert (in her mom’s belly) to the show she saw last night, Ali is all about that magical connection that we all get seeing live music together. Ali will welcome you to the studio, ask about your band, your next show, your favorite artist, and she will happily chat with you about any artist or genre of your choosing. Ali will always make sure you feel seen and heard (and she'll get you coffee!). When she’s not at Dog House, Ali is eating french fries, soaking it up in the mountains, or out at a concert. Did you know she is the proud mother of a ferret named Flapjack?

KATE CONROY

Assistant Engineer

Kate's goal is to make your recording session low-stress and fluid so you can create some magic in the booth. Kate moves through the studio with a calm confidence that can't help but let you know that you're in good hands. Do you need another set of ears? Does your personal monitor need to be more personalized? Are you craving a Dr Pepper? Kate will help you out like she's your best friend, and maybe she is. Kate is a recording and mixing engineer schooled at our very own University of Colorado and has worked with dozens of artists from rap and RnB to singer/songwriters and indie rock. Did you know that Kate plays bass and has a sweet Bernadoodle named Juno?
