I have always found the home recording environment allows musicians to create/perform to their highest potential. The vision behind Oak Ridge Studios has never been a large, fancy, clean-cut studio, but instead, a place where musicians can relax, communicate well and have a memorable experience, whilst still making serious music.
Located in Bishopbriggs, Glasgow, the studio is only a 10 minute drive from the city centre with strong public transport links. We have designed two large and unique spaces over two floors within our home. Having different sounding acoustical environments adds a different dimension of depth to a recording, and allows space to make many different types of recordings.
My main ethos is to give every album its own unique footprint and distinctive sound. I love the 'recordist' nature to the art, and will capture realistic acoustic sounds, but also I'm not scared to push the music into more creative and unconventional realms.
A 'Home Recording Studio' probably comes with connotations of sacrificing quality, but I have invested and collected the highest quality of vintage/modern analogue equipment that would stand up to any large recording studio. Please see my detailed Gear List.
Although I specialise in Acoustic Folk and Experimental music, I love working on all genres. Typically, I charge a day/hourly rate, and offer a per-track fee for mixing (whatever works out cheaper for the client). I can offer any of the following services within this time:
