Excellent Location

We’re located near the intersection of Hennepin and 26th in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis, MN. We’re surrounded by creative businesses and great restaurants. There’s a grocery store two blocks away for those extended sessions. And there are a bunch of awesome watering holes when you need a break.

F.A.Q.

Can’t I record everything myself with my computer?

Yes, you can record everything yourself. That’s how we all started. We’d spend hours and days recording, experimenting, and overdubbing songs until we couldn’t stand it any longer. But we were younger then, and crazier, and we had more time.

Can I bring my friends to hang out while I record?

We’re not really equipped to host a party AND make a killer record at the same time. We’ve got plenty of room for a band to hang out during the course of a project and play video games. And we could probably deal with a couple of extra people around. But generally, if a person isn’t directly involved in the making of a recording, it’s better if they’re hanging out at one of the many local eateries, coffee shops, or bars near the studio.

I’ve written a bunch of great songs that I want to record with a full band, but I’m only one person. Can you help?

We all started out as musicians, and some of us are pretty good at playing our respective instruments. This area has a lot of great players and studio musicians, and luckily, we’ve worked with a lot of them. Give us a call and we’ll do what we can to help you realize your dreams.
