Nashville-based producer/engineer Jonell Polansky has expanded her production company, DaCapo Music (, to include a full-service, state-of-the-art commercial recording facility. “I wanted to reconfigure my studio to be competitive with the finest rooms in Nashville,” she says. DaCapo Music is centered around a vintage Trident Series 80B console, and offers Nuendo and a selection of analog outboard reverbs, delays and mic pre's, as well as a fully loaded mic closet.

Polansky has relied on her extensive mic collection to produce and engineer vocals for numerous artists during her 13-year stay on Music Row. “Singing in the studio is difficult, regardless of talent,” she says. “But there are only a few producers that really take the time to teach singers to excel in this environment. Younger artists are being developed and signed to recording contracts now. It is a natural progression of their talent and career to learn to sing in the studio properly. Someone must really take the time to listen to the artist, obliterate any fears and build vocal confidence. There is a lot of trial-and-error involved, and in today's age of ‘hurry up and record,’ that time is often not given.”
