Placing Respect, Integrity, Honesty & Quality Above All  Else...




John Mahoney and Ravenpheat Productions have been invaluable in the process of making my  MindMuscle Authentic Personal HealthTransformation Series a reality. John is an excellent technician and a superb professional. From initial inquiry, to convenient scheduling, to in-studio assistance/recommendations to product delivery, reasonable cost, and continuing customer service, Ravenpheat has met or exceeded my expectations.
John has made it possible for me to continue doing recorded material with confidence and ease. Without the exquisite entire experience with John and Ravenpheat, my work would still be locked up inside of me.
I am releasing the nearly 20 hours of topics I recorded with the Studio in the hopes that they will benefit many people. John made long days of recording easy and fun. John Mahoney and Ravenpheat get my highest recommendation for anyone serious about professional recording. Thank You, John.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with John on two different occasions.  Together, we have created three fantastic meditation CD's to be used as a comfort to those seeking inner spiritual strength and healing.  His meticulous attention to details and wonderful ear for music and sound brought all of these projects together perfectly.  John took the time and energy to ensure my product was market-ready.  He exhibited a high level of professionalism, and had all of the projects completed in a timely manner.  I highly recommend RavenPheat Productions, LLC to anyone seeking a highly qualified and efficient sound recording studio.  Thank you for everything, John!  I will definitely be back soon. - Marci Cagen



Dear John,

I cannot begin to tell you how proud I am of this project. You have an amazing dynamic sense of sound that has made a great project - brilliant! I love the way you pan certain sound effects to go from the left speaker to the right. Only a true aficionado would appreciate the nuance of this experience.

Thank-you, thank-you for being such a sound editing talent - one that was perfect for my project and funny bone.

With great appreciation,

Jan Katzen, author-Humdrum Hannah, children's book



    I had the most wonderful collaborative experience while working with John and Raven Audio Books.  This was my first experience with recording and John easily calmed my nerves with his easy-going, yet professional manner and we were able to create an outstanding audio poem book, Of Roots, Shoes and Rhymes.  He was accessible, easy to talk and work with and so knowledgeable.  He knew exactly the type of music or sound background that was needed for each poem and truly made this project unique and beautiful.  I would highly recommend John and feel so fortunate to have his talents so close here in Glendale, Arizona!

John Mahoney truly does put Respect, Integrity, Honesty and Quality above all else. He stands firmly behind his work and makes good on anything that doesn't meet his very high standards of professional quality. He understands how the storyteller mind works and he helps create a product that is professional, clear, clean and highly marketable. His patience with and kindness to a rookie will bring me back for my next storytelling project. I cannot praise this man and his studio enough. He is the best. Elly Reidy, Storyteller, Glendale, AZ.



“John is an expert at recording the spoken work, no one does it better. His experience and knowledge brings out the very best in the audio production. I would not consider anyone else for my own personal recordings.”

Jerry D. Simmons—    INDI Publishing Group, LLC



As a professional storyteller for over two decades, a recording studio familiar with spoken word was crucial for my first CD.  An acquaintance  recommended  RavenPheat Productions.

 Immediately I was impressed by the professionalism  and personal care devoted to my project. I would say that the thing I appreciated most about working with Ravenpheat Productions is that in addition to production, creative input was put into every stage of the process. Working with John  Mahoney, producer/engineer,  offered the best of teamwork — working and thinking together to create the best CD possible.

The musical composition created for my CD is outstanding. Listeners never fail to comment on the astonishing background music.

John Mahoney was able to  turn the job round in good time. He was fast and flexible with excellent communication, and all for a fair price.

 I expect to carry on doing business with RavenPheat Productions for all of my future projects.  The quality of the work produced  is excellent and I  couldn’t recommend it  highly enough.

John, thanks for a magnificent experience!  I love the way you pay attention to the details and to what I wanted to create.  Your natural intuitive talents and skills created a masterpiece.  You’re the greatest!  I’ll see you soon to record more!   Many blessings to you,

If you are a storyteller, writer or musician looking to make a quality audio recording, I would like to recommend John Mahoney of RavenPheat Productions.  I found John to be a consummate professional.  He is honest, conscientious and dedicated to providing the best possible service to his customers.

 John did such a wonderful job for me during the production of my first storytelling CD, “The Family Gazette,” that I plan to produce another recording at his studio within the next few months.  His technical knowledge and the equipment he uses are first-rate, providing a superb finished product.  John’s ability to get the best quality recording from a nervous customer is noteworthy, since he schedules enough time to give each client the feeling that there is no one else impatiently waiting to be “next” in line.

 As an added plus, John charges a fair price for his expertise.  He is a straightforward businessperson and does not believe in contract “small print” nonsense.  I look forward to working with him again.

 Sincerely, Glenda Bonin



Thanks for asking, we were very satisfied, and intend to use you again as soon as the summer season is over.  Jim, Trader's Accounting

I have recommended John Mahoney to several of my friends that needed

assistance with a recording project in the past, based completely on my past

association with John.  Just recently, I needed John's expertise to help

create my own CD and found my former recommendations of John's integrity to

be well founded!  John's gifts of assurance and suggestions made the

experience of entering an unknown territory, incredibly easy and do-able.  I

am most impressed with John's forthright nature and integrity, his humor and

especially his dedication to quality and perfection.  Thanks John!  Now I

know why I recommended you to others.    Blessings!  Sara Hosier




Hi, John.  I wanted to thank you, yet again, for the great times I spent in

your loving and patient care recording, editing, and re-editing my CD series. 

Although I have had little experience in recording, I felt so comfortable, so

at ease, and very much a part of the process from  beginning to end.  You

treated me as a partner in the creation, and I so enjoyed just being with you.  I

was in such harmony with the energy present in "your" space, remember...it was

just easy and natural, as though I was sitting with a client, guiding them,

reading them, flowing with a rhythm so natural in my space.  You're a special

breed, John.  You care, and your integrity is intact!  Your intention is for

the highest good for all be served, and that helped so much, walking into that

clear energy!  And you worked hard for me, making sure the results were what we

wanted, going the extra step, offering suggestions, listening to what I had

to say, AND hearing what I didn't say!  Hey, three times is the charm! 

Marketing is next.  And what I have to market is first rate!  It was a truly an honor

and a pleasure!!   I trust that now that you have built it, they will come...

flocking to your door.  Gee, maybe I should make an appointment for my next

CD now, and avoid the rush!    Blessings, Shandae'




John helped to create my first CD product and it turned out great!  He

quoted me a very reasonable estimate and produced a high quality,

professional sounding CD of my workshop.  John worked like a true

professional during the entire recording session. He also edited the final

product to perfection, added applause, music, and my introduction.  He also

supplied me with a pre edited copy and a post edited copy - what a

difference!!  John is great to work with, flexible, knowledgeable, and (most

importantly) very trustworthy.  You can tell that he loves what he does!!
