Mark Makoway is a Juno nominated producer and a multi-platinum selling, Juno winning songwriter and performer. With over 20 years of music industry success, Mark brings world class talent and experience to every project he works on.

Making great music takes time and focused attention. As a boutique operation with our own state of the art facility (Rumblecone Studio) and a proven track record that has created hit records for 15 years, our priority has always been providing service and results to talented artists and never on juggling numerous projects at the same time.

From pre-production work right through to the delivery of mixed and mastered tracks, we provide a turn-key service and will create a flexible production schedule to suit your needs and deadlines. As a sought after mixer, Mark has a long history of providing artists and labels with chart topping hits and that continues today with no less than two #1 Canadian tracks on the Active Rock charts in the last 6 months (2015).

Rumblecone is also available for short and long term facility rentals. Scroll down to STUDIO for more information.



    Great performances come from artists that are comfortable and uninhibited, not in a pressured corporate setting or feeling the weight of being on the clock. Our studio environment is a conscious balance of world class equipment and a relaxed atmosphere. Built for songwriters, designed for creating great music and enabling amazing performances.

    The studio is equipped with a comfortable 12’ x 25’ control room and a 10’ x 12’ live room, perfect for vocals, guitars and virtually any electric or acoustic instruments. The studio is an acoustically treated, neutral space designed for sonic fidelity, not enhancement. We are conveniently located in downtown Toronto with easy access, private parking and amenities nearby.
