Our History

OCTOBER 2006
ten years of recording, producing, mixing and mastering
In the mid 1990s, Simon Coles began building a recording studio at Durham Place, in Scarborough, under the name Sonic Moles, which attracted many artists from around the region. In 2007, Si Vooght became the owner, the studio was changed and Sonic Moles began moving in a new direction.
OCTOBER 2011
SONIC MOLES BECOMES A PRODUCTION TEAM
After meeting local producers and writers, such as Kista, Joy Bacerdo, and Bri Johnson, Si Vooght felt the best way to move the studio forward was to branch out more into co-production with local acts.
MAY 2014
THE SONIC MOLES WELCOME MIKE ALVES TO THE TEAM
The Moles’ humble beginnings were coming to an end and in 2019 Si Vooght decided to pass the reins of the studio to Mike Alves, who, with Bri Johnson, is writing the next chapter of the studio. With a massive rebuild and equipment installation. ReelHarmony is now pleased to present ReelSonic Studio.
FEBRUARY 2018
FIVE YEARS OF RESHAPING, REALLIGNING, PLANNING AND REFURBISHING
The journey hasn’t been easy, but there’s been a lot of fun and good times along the way. We have met some great people, worked on a lot of projects and helped a variety of talented musicians and artists take their next steps forwards. All of these experiences have helped us shape a tight network of local and regional talented writers and musicians, in order to be able to offer some of the best services in the area.
