BOPNIQUE TESTIMONIALS


I can still remember the moment I walked into Bopnique Musique. It was like taking a magic carpet ride into a place where truly great music comes to life. I've never sounded better than I did under Anthony's direction. A remarkable experience.

You Are The Only One
duet with Charlie Farren, recorded July 2008
released January 2009, debuted at #34 Mediabase/AC Radio

"This song has such an easy, confident charm. I loved it. It'd be a great fit for, say, a TV show with ballroom dancing. Hmmmm."
- Tom Bergeron, Host
Dancing with the Stars



It's official. 
Bopnique is a separate universe.  You guys....I just
don't know how you continue to out do yourselves time and time again.
I was stuck in 2 hours of traffic this morning, so I had a chance to listen to the 4 tunes we recorded with you back-to-back all together over and over.  And for God's sake......what a musical journey! I can safely say that I've never felt this great about our own music.  I've always known that the "right team" could take these songs where they needed to be.
and it's become crystal clear that Bopnique was the 'right team'.  I can't
thank you guys enough for all your amazing work.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Anthony J. Resta is an exception to the rule in the music business.  He is an artist's artist.  A true collaborator and coach.  A muse for meaning and individual voice.  Rather than always going after the obvious "hits-based" artists and hitching his wagon to the money-train, Anthony meets the "everyman" artist on the same footing as his well-documented work with pop stars.  Anthony met me when I made my very first album, long ago, not because he thought I was going to be a pop star (far from it!) but because my song, "American Night" touched his heart.  It was not until many years and six albums later that I started working with Anthony as a producer-- it was not until then that I was really ready to find my voice.  I had already made some money through master use licensing, so I could have continued to make my own records "successfully."  But I was not hearing the "sound in my head"  doing it myself.  Many amateur and semi-pro artists (and even pros) never think to look for their own voice because they think it's not important or because they're getting by using influences-- and that's OK for some.  For me, I knew I wanted to hear "what was in my head" and Anthony&Karyadi made that an aural reality at Studio Bopnique.  I was hesitant at first because Studio Bopnique is not the $50/hr studio I was used to, and things took longer.  But I had a personal artistic mission- and I was experienced enough to know that cheap is not always good-- and I also knew I could not do what I wanted to do by myself or with my bandmates-- I'd tried already.  I needed a producer-- and I needed experience.  I got so much more.  I now write differently.  I sing differently.  I think about my music differently, and I think about the creative process differently.  I am now an individual artist because Anthony proved to me that my "voice" was legitimate-- by bringing it out in me and creating the sound around my own individuality-- the sound that was in my head.   This is what's so beautiful about Studio Bopnique- now the "everyman" artist has access to what pop stars get-- and maybe because of this, some of us will become pop stars-- but at Studio Bopnique we all get to realize our artistic vision, which is ultimately why (or should be why) we're doing this.  I'm just completing my second full length with Anthony- and I did a "self-made" record in between- and I'm growing even more as an artist this time as I did on my first project.  At this stage in my career, this kind of growth is unbelievable-- it's exciting, invigorating and fulfilling-- and this transformation translates live at gigs- the audience reaction is 10 times what it used to be-- at least.  Thank you Anthony and Karyadi for making it possible for me to become my own artist-- me!

Engineer Karyadi Sutedja  is sonically brilliant and
unmatched behind the console. (Karyadi was on the Grammy ballot for best engineered non-classical in 2008) Every signal that a microphone,
preamp, etc. receives, is captured, embraced, and rendered to tape
with perfection. I won't even bother to mention all of the toys.  It's a total
laboratory. Poetic I know, but what happens at Bopnique IS pure art and
exploration.  Every artist that has graced its floors has thanked
their lucky stars, as Anthony and Karyadi take their work far beyond
outer space.
 
Eric Alexandrakis: Minoan Music Publishing/composer




"When Anthony and Karyadi sent me the first mix of our new album, at that point, it was the proudest moment of my career as I knew the rest of his work was going to be spectacular."

Nick Richards:
lead singer of Boys Don't Cry&former owner of Maison Rouge Studios, London



"Creative genius.  What does that mean?  Someone incredibly talented,
who brings forth their talent in extraordinarily unique ways never
done before with great success, while also adding a significant
contribution to one's field.  People in the music business love to
blanket people in superlatives, but when the marriage of these two
words (creative genius) first came to light to describe someone or
something fantastic, they must have had Anthony in mind.
 
There are only a handful of really great producers that have
redefined production via their own niche and groundbreaking
techniques...who are recognized as people that have changed the way
records are made and sound.  All of them strive for perfection in
their own way, but no one does it like Anthony.  I am a life-long
student of music and of production and noone's work shocks me the way
his techniques, execution and results do.  He is such a versatile
virtuoso who literally morphs into the artists he cultivates.  He
takes such care in understanding his artists, spending time to
understand their goals, influences and personality, with almost
childlike wonder and exuberance."

Eric Alexandrakis Minoan Music Publishing / Composer for film and TV



Ed Roland credits much of albums progressive mood and freewheeling sonic approach
to producer Anthony J. Resta ( AJR worked with Collective Soul from Dosage to Afterwords during a ten year tenure)

"Anthony brought an unbelievable spirit and attitude"  Ed continues, "He has more gadgets than we do so well had a good time just plugging stuff in and seeing what sounds would work".

Ed Roland lead singer / principle songwriter for Collective Soul



"Anthony who is half our mixing team, often adds and replaces tracks even while mixing! 
I like to be surprised if we are in London and he's on the east coast.
Occasionally we have fixes but for the most part he's dead on. It ends up being more homemade and much more modern and we can get any result we want"

Warren Cuccurullo  (Frank Zappa, Missing Persons, Duran Duran)



"Anthony J. Resta who mixes and plays drums on the record (Medazzaland)
is like a machine. He has the most incredible sense of Rhythm I've come across in years.
The way he breaks down polyrhythms and percussion and pieces together the music
one layer at a time is remarkable."

Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran



"Dear Anthony and Karyadi,

Words can't express how grateful we are to both of you for all your time, hard work, and love you put into our project - not just producing the songs but helping to build the songs and the concept of the band itself. We just can't thank you enough.
 
You are Geniuses and beyond "Pro" and its such an honor to be working with you."

Scott and Sarah from The New Collisions
