What people are saying

“Recording Artists Development, Inc. is a nurturing, safe environment where
you are surrounded by creative, artistic, and constructively opinionated
people. Phil takes your little embryo of a song and develops it into a full
grown child.”

Laura Giannone , New York City

“Recording Artists Development has taken my music to levels I never thought it could reach. Before I starting working with Philip and all of the wonderful people at RAD, I never realized the extent to which I could develop as a songwriter and an artist. My experiences with RAD have been life altering.”

Apryl Evans , New York City

“This is my third songwriting workshop at RAD. Working with Philip Carroll has been wonderful. Phil has helped my music grow from lyrics on a sheet and melodies that exist in my mind into fixed recordings with production that really represents who I am and the sounds I’d like to integrate in my work. Phil even takes the time to go through my music and help me choose which songs are best for me to work on. Phil also allows me to search with him to find sounds and instrumentation that match my style. The group critiques are very helpful as well because you get input from all of the workshop members in addition to special guests. It’s such a fun process and I am thankful that I have been lucky enough to find a talented producer like Phil and a nurturing group like RAD. that sets out to help the singer/songwriter truly develop into a recording artist.”

Margot Bitter

“Working with Philip Carroll and the RAD workshop, and listening to the development of different styles brought in by the other artists, opened my mind to new explorations of my own songs.”
