An amazing recording package from the team at Red Wall Studios. They were formed in late 2018 by  Carl Heyes (read his Local Music live blog HERE), built on an ethos of providing a great environment for musicians with affordale but decent recording services and quality rehearsal spaces. Where they are now is the culmination of eight years of hard DIY, networking, lots of fun and generally the support of fantastic local bands and businesses. Along the way two sound engineers jumped on board, Dean Corrrie and Carl Brewer, who've helped make the place what it is today. They have a robust team and amazing spaces to helps bands release their creativity, hone their skills and capture it forever on quality recordings. There aim is to always be approachable, affordable and honest! 


A brilliant music video from Harris Associates. Harris Associates know what they’re talking about.
