Here’s a few options/examples of what is available in Nashville. There are literally thousands of recording studios here.

ocean_way_studio-1Ocean Way Nashville is housed in a Gothic Revival greystone church on famed Music Row that was built at the turn of the century. Ocean Way Nashville began as a joint venture of Allen Sides (Ocean Way and Record One, LA) and Gary Belz (House of Blues Studios, LA and Memphis). Architectural firm Studio Bau:ton helped design and build this beautiful facility. “Many of our LA clients work in Nashville because they appreciate the caliber of musicians,” explained Sides. _Clients from both cities kept asking that we open a studio in Nashville, so it seemed like a reasonable decision.

In 2001, Belmont University bought the studio as a way to expand their recording program. Ocean Way however, remains a commercial studio and still strives to be a comfortable and creative space for all clients.

Clients over the years include George Strait, Matchbox Twenty, Harry Connick Jr., Faith Hill, The Mavericks, Willie Nelson, Train, Gretchen Wilson, Montgomery Gentry, Toby Keith, Three Doors Down, and Sheryl Crow.
