Imaginary Road Studios

" As producer of my last two projects, Will Ackerman's influence elevated my composing and performance to new heights. I just "happened" to write the best music of my career while working with Will. "

Stanton Lanier


" ....if it is at all possible...and he will have me...I will never do another CD without Will Ackerman as producer. "

Rocky Fretz


" Our time at Imaginary Road Studios was magical. Will was able to envision and bring things out in our music that I had never imagined on my own. The results were truly beyond what I had expected. He is a gifted and driven producer and a just a great guy to team with. "
