As a one-stop-shop studio, we can skillfully take your project from the concept stage to finished master -- all in-house. We also mix & master projects recorded elsewhere, but our real value comes from getting to know YOU, your musical sensibilities, and your goals.



Are you a singer-songwriter who needs instrumental tracks to accompany your guitar and vocal? An ad agency looking for a catchy jingle? We can provide tasteful, appropriate parts, arrangements and performances to create the sound you're looking for.

"Innovation Station Music is hands-down the best recording studio in the Mid-Atlantic region. Dave Mallen has put his heart and soul into creating a wonderful, state-of-the-art facility that offers cutting edge technology without losing the warm, inviting feel of playing music with friends. As a Producer, Dave is 100% committed to bringing the very best out of every artist. He works tirelessly to record, mix, and master every track to the absolute highest standard. In fact, several of my songs that Dave produced and recorded have won national and international awards. If you're serious about making the very best music you can, Innovation Station Music is the one and only choice in this area."

"It can be tough to find someone who is both enjoyable to work with and who has the prowess needed to produce creative, top-notch music. Innovation Station Music has both. For the past year and a half, I've been working with Dave Mallen on an original album and business strategy, and I'm so glad I made his studio my choice. As someone with high standards, I can say, the studio has what it takes to bring your music dream to life. Beautiful space, the latest equipment, and a producer who pours his heart into each project he takes on."

"Dave Mallen's ability to earn an artist’s trust, plus his attention to creating a genuine working relationship with his clients is what makes him a pleasure to make music with. In our time spent getting to know each other and working together on a project near and dear to my heart, I not only gained a producer and co-writer to collaborate with, but a mentor and friend as well. Dave devotes all the creative energy he can muster when choosing to work on a project in an effort to help bring out the best in his clients. His main mission is to understand his clients’ goals and, in turn, assist them with churning out the best possible end product they can. His encouraging words, patient demeanor, and passionate work ethic make him an ideal collaborator for anyone looking to put all their heart and soul into making music."
