What Our Clients Are Saying
"When Dango reached out to me, and mentioned this new idea, The Elephant Collective, I was thrilled. Dango is a seasoned musician and a creative force. It was very easy for me to say, “yes”, immediately.
When I arrived to the studio for the first time, I was made to feel comfortable instantly. I knew I was a part of something special. The energy in the room itself is warm, cozy, and welcoming. After settling in, we got straight into pre-production. Evan Reeves and Dango Rose have a great sensibility and feel for many different styles of music. Those gifts were immediately evident as we began to work on my song. They communicated well, were patient and attentive with me, and added some lovely nuance to the song. I’m so happy with the way it has turned out. I will be recording my entire EP at the EC studio this winter.
As a result of working with Dango, I have met, interacted, and worked with some great people who have a passion for music. Everyone Dango brings into the EC has something very different to offer. It’s such an eclectic and talented group. I leave every session inspired, and hungry for more. I’m meeting musicians and people in the industry that will be lifetime associates and friends. I’m learning and playing new styles of music. I’m entering in to a genuine, loving community. I’m grateful for Dango and the Elephant collective."
“Working with Dango, Evan and The Elephant Collective on the track Red, Yellow, Gold and Green was a creatively enriching and enlivening experience. They took a simple song and teased out a whole world within its story, using their finely tuned musical sensitivity and complimenting it with their adept musical and production skills. They stayed true to the essence of the piece and helped bring it to life with composition that is both bold and subtle, each note perfectly placed. A joyous collaboration!”
“I had the pleasure of working with Dango Rose and Evan Reeves to record my song “Happy Ever After” in the highly pro yet cozy lair of the Elephant Collective. Even though I was nervous about recording a new (to me) type of song, the two of them were all kinds of helpful throughout the process, gave great feedback, and had all the right gear and knowledge for the job. It was an entirely satisfying experience and I’m already looking forward to the next time.”

Elephant Collective Podcast
Join Dango Rose and guest co-hosts on the Elephant Collective Podcast, "Story Behind the Song."
Jules Schroeder came to us with a rough demo of a song and an idea to make an EP. After taking her through several song-writing sessions, pre-production, coaching, and recording we created a 4-song EP. Below you can listen to the work we created together.
"I am blown away by the level of professionalism, innovation, and talent in the Elephant Collective. Both Evan and Dango have a unique ability to take an idea or concept and turn it into a full blown production. When I came to Elephant Collective, I just had songs that I had written on piano that sounded good, although they were missing key chord arrangements and other important pieces. While working together, Dango drew on his years of experiences to take my sketches and turn them into beautiful arrangements, tightening up the lyrics and the structure and ultimately coming up with something epic."
