"Tony's not just a fantastic engineer, but a next level producer. He makes the product the best it can be, while still creating a comfortable & creative atmosphere."
Deep End Studio has been involved in the Baltimore music scene a number of ways beyond the studio walls. The studio sponsors benefit concerts, local shows, and other networking and educational events. Tony Correlli frequently plays keyboard or guitar live with bands he produces, as well as All-Star Jam sessions from 98 Rocks's Noise In The Basement and other shows and fund-raisers for good causes. He's been a fixture in the Baltimore music scene for 20 years, playing in dozens of bands of many genres at nearly every venue in the state. He's forged relationships and experience that he uses to help developing bands he produces.
In 2010, Deep End Studio organized a compilation CD to give out free to music fans at a Baltimore music festival. That effort grew into the Charm City Sampler. Over 25,000 CDs have been manufactured and handed out free to music fans in the area in an effort to introduce some of Baltimore's best bands. Clutch, Jimmie's Chicken Shack, and other well-known groups have appeared along with up-and-coming artists, and discs were given out to a broad audience at large music festivals with national and local acts. The limited space on the CD and increasing popularity has turned the process into a competition/challenge to produce engaging songs and earning a spot on the project.
