About Reverent Studios

Aaron Barnhart

Reverent Studios was created to cultivate a spirit of creation and collaboration in the Christian music community. From songwriting to recording, mixing to mastering, Reverent provides a space for artists to flourish in their faith and creative endeavors.


We provide a unique environment where artists can break away from their hectic lives and center themselves in God’s presence as they create works that honor Him.


Nestled in the West Salem Hills, the studio is a fully equipped recording space designed for solo artists and full band recordings. Whether you are looking to do a live album, full length studio album, or solo project; we have you covered.


Reverent also does special outdoor events in our beautiful and secluded woodland venue. We record and mix these live events to help foster a spirit of creative collaboration with Christian artists throughout the community.

We also specialize in songwriting and production. We want to help you realize your unique vision as an artist in a way that honors your talent and dedication to the Lord.

Snuggles from our french bulldog Gideon are free of charge.
