P
rofessional studios have become more than just a place to record
music. Today, many are attracting new business by offering services
that go way beyond production. Some now offer internships. Others
even operate like mini-labels, grooming artists and promoting careers. To
give you an idea as to how these developments can benet artists, Music
Connection contacted a number of innovative studios. We think youll nd
that their operations are not only eye opening; theyre downright exciting.

4th STREET RECORDING
Santa Monica, CA
Kathleen Wirth
http://4thstreetrecording.com
Just three blocks from the Pacic Ocean off
Southern Calfornia, there is a special place
where artists have been making music for over
30 years. It used to be called Sound Solutions,
with clients such as Little Richard, George
Clinton and the Beach Boys. In 1989, Kathleen
Wirt and a partner bought the studio and
renamed it 4th Street Recording. The facility
features a wavy ceiling in the tracking room and
walls that are soundproofed with sand hauled
from the beach. Since 95, over 20 acts have
been signed to deals with recordings produced
at 4th Street, starting with Fiona Apple, Incubus,
Alien Ant Farm and Hoobastank.
NEW BUSINESS STRATEGIES?
We try to make the most of whatever social
media tools we think might be useful, from Face-
book to Twitter and blogs.
We also sponsor an Indie Music Festival,
which gives us a lot of exposure. In fact, the grand
prize includes a 4th Street Recording package.
A lot of famous acts have recorded here and,
because of that, word-of-mouth about the studio
is strong. But our prole really rose when we were
named one of the top Iconic Temples of Sound
by the Hollywood Reporter.
WHAT DO YOU OFFER ASPIRING ARTISTS?
We work with a lot of up-and-coming inde-
pendent acts and have always tried to help them.
Our rates are lower to begin with, and if an act can
pay COD (cash on deliverywhen services are
rendered), well give them an even bigger break.
Im now putting together an Artist Assistance
Program that Im excited about. I want to assist
artists after they nish recording. Ive noticed
that quite a few acts want to go the independent
route today. But, theyre not sure what to do or
how to go about it. They need help devising a plan
and strategy. I give them advice when they ask
for it, but Im also planning to host workshops and
mentoring sessions, and start offering services
that will help them with marketing, social media,
promotions, song placements and radio airplay.
Anything that will help to develop their brand and
generate income.
EASTWEST
Hollywood, CA
Candace Stewart
http://eastwest-studios.com
Originally called Western Recorders, the rooms
at EastWest Studios have produced some of
the biggest records of all time. By the mid-60s,
the facilities became a musical epicenter: The
Mamas and the Papas recorded California
Dreaming and Monday, Monday, Scott Mc-
Kenzie laid down his classic San Francisco,
and the Beach Boys ushered in a new era with
their masterpiece Pet Sounds. The studios were
sold and renamed several times over the years;
e.g. they were called Oceanway in 1989, and
Cello in 1999. Then, in 2006, Doug Rogers of
EastWest acquired the facilities and made them
a recording haven for many superstar acts.
HAS THE INTERNET AND SOCIAL MEDIA
AFFECTED BUSINESS?
Yes, in a big way. Because everyone is wired
today, most people do online research before
choosing a recording studio. So, our Internet pres-
ence is important. We work social networks all the
time, including Facebook and Twitter and anything
else we can think of. We also search the Internet
and check out social media to nd potential clients
and see what theyre doing.
HOW DO YOU BRING IN NEW BUSINESS?
I go to a lot of functions, parties and conferences.
I have to meet people, talk about their projects,
and let them know what our studio can offer.
Ive also been a guest speaker at schools and
have even joined songwriter and composer
organizations to pick up score and soundtrack
work. The truth is, Im networking all the time.
DO YOU HELP DIY ARTISTS?
Most DIY acts need some help, so I try to hook
them up. I know a lot of industry professionals
in almost every area of the business, especially
producers and managers. If I think there might
be a good t, Ill set up a meeting and introduce
artists to potential team members who can help
them.

AVATAR
New York, NY
Kirk Imamura
http://avatarstudios.com.
Avatar Studios opened in 1996. Located in
Manhattan, it operates a 33,000-square foot
facility dedicated to providing professional
quality audio recording services. Many
famous artists, producers and engineers have
passed through its doors. In fact, it served as
Madonnas home when she recorded Like
a Virgin and played host to stars such as
Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, David
Bowie and Roxy Music. More recently, Paul
McCartney, John Mayer, Muse, Norah Jones,
Diana Krall and My Morning Jacket recorded
there.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ATTRACT NEW
CLIENTS?
The market in New York is driven by lm and
television production. To tap that, we associate
with a number of lm festivals and have teamed
up with the Manhattan Producers Alliance. As
a result weve recorded some major scores and
soundtracks here. The budgets for those types
of projects can be better than your typical album
budget from a label.
DO YOU HAVE AN INTERNSHIP PROGRAM?
We have had an internship program at Avatar
for a long time, mostly geared to entry-level
engineering.
DO YOU SEE ANY TRENDS IN PERSONNEL?
Ive noticed that more females are interested
in the recording process nowadays. Women
have a different sort of sensibility from their male
counterparts. In fact, its getting so popular that
many of them belong to an organization called
Womens Audio Mission. It is a non-prot ded-
icated to the advancement of women in music
and the recording arts.
FIREHOUSE
Pasadena, CA
Jason Upright
http://rehouserecordingstudio.com
Located in a historical building in Old Town
Pasadena, Firehouse is one of the best-kept
secrets of recording mavens. It offers a place to
record music away from the hustling, bustling,
densely crowded environs of Hollywood.
Described as a digital domain with vintage
gear, Firehouse is known for its old-studio vibe
and comfortable ambience. It is a rst class,
full-service facility that handles everything from
tracking to mastering, all in-house.
HAVE YOU TRIED CREATIVE BUSINESS
APPROACHES?
We sure have. Because recording budgets are
shrinking, we had to nd alternative ways to bring
in income. And, because were situated in an old
historic building, we discovered that production
companies like to use the premises for lm and
TV projects. Theyll rent out blocks of time and, as
a result, weve had some pretty popular TV shows
and movies lmed here.
But it gets even better. Once theyre here,
they fall in love with the place and ask about
our recording services. Often, after theyre done
shooting, well get scoring and soundtrack work.
I also tried using Groupon, but was very careful
with how I did it. I didnt want it to be cheesy, so
I created the most tasteful presentation I could.
It was a huge success and brought in a lot of
business. It even got rave reviews on Yelp, which
generated more exposure for the studio.
HOW DO YOU HELP ARTISTS?
Well, Im a former artist manager so helping
artists comes naturally. We work with a lot of
independent acts that are serious musicians, and
many of them arent interested in a label deal
they want to do it themselves. Its a reection of
whats happening in the music business today.
But, at times, they also need some advice and
direction, especially in regard to studio etiquette.
Ive noticed that some artists dont know the
difference between a producer and engineer.
Theyll ask if the engineer will tell them if a take is
good or bad. So I try to set up meetings with the
artist and engineer, before they get in the studio,
so they can talk about whats needed and what is
expected. That way, when they do start recording,
they can get down to business.
DO YOU USE INTERNS OR HIRE ENGINEERS?
I get six to 12 calls a day from kids who want to
learn about the studio world. Theyre even willing
to intern for free. The downside is that I also get
calls from experienced engineers, with great track
records, who are willing to do anything just to get
some work. But, at the moment, we have a very
devoted staff and really don't need anyone else.
MEDIA TEMPLE PRODUCTIONS
Hollywood, CA
Brad Bilanin and Guy Baruch
http://mediatempleproductions.com
Media Temple Productions (MTP) not only
provides pro recording services, theyre also
on a mission. Co-owners Brad Bilanin and
Guy Baruch want to change the way artists
and events are produced. Their passion is to
support the communities their artists reach. To
do so, Media Temple created the Open Artist
Movement (OAM), a platform for presenting
indie and established acts in innovative,
progressive ways. Their concert series, Open
Artists with Open Arms, has raised thousands
of dollars for non-prot organizations. MTP
artists include Jojo, Carmit (Pussycat Dolls),
Blake Lewis, Fanny Pak (MTVs Americas Next
Dance Crew), Wilson Cruz and more.
HOW DO YOU ATTRACT NEW BUSINESS?
We try to be very creative with the space we
have and utilize it for multiple purposes. We host
workshops, publisher sessions, voice-over and
production classes, and encourage listening
parties (after a project is completed). We found
that if we can get people into the studio, theyll
usually book time here.
As a result, over the last year, our business has
increased over 100 percent. We think the studio
environment itself, as well as the unique services
we offer, are the reasons business has been so
consistent.
HOW DOES YOUR INDIE ARTIST PROGRAM
WORK?
Its called Artist Design, because we basically
design a career for them. We select acts that we
believe have potential and develop them into a
complete package. We help create the tools that
they need and bring in other industry pros, like
songwriters, producers, publishers, etc, to work
with them. We customize our approach to meet
each artists needs, and have had quite a bit of
success. Our artists have gotten some great song
placements and opened for major acts.
DO YOU OFFER AN INTERNSHIP PROGRAM?
We do. We think its important to introduce
people to the world of recording. Some of our
interns even end up working here. We just hired
one recently. Most, however, use the time to see
if its something they want to do. Lately, it seems
like more females are getting into studio work.
Although some come here to hone production
skills, many of them appear to be evaluating the
business in general. We love our interns, and any-
one who's interested should contact us.
We select acts that we believe
have potential and develop
them into a complete package.
We work with a lot of
independent acts that are serious
musicians, and many of them
arent interested in a label deal.

THE VILLAGE
Los Angeles, CA
Jeff Greenberg
http://villagestudios.com
One of the nations legendary studios, The
Village is a state-of-the-art, full-service re-
cording complex housed in an old Masonic
Temple in West Los Angeles. You would be
hard pressed to nd an artist who hasnt
recorded there. Everyone from Neil Young,
Fleetwood Mac, the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd
and Bob Dylan to current artists Lady Gaga,
Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Taylor Swift, Usher
and John Mayer have created music within its
walls. In fact, its roster is a virtual whos who
of superstars. The studio has also produced an
impressive list of lm scores: The Bodyguard,
Almost Famous, Something About Mary, Moulin
Rouge!, Finding Nemo, Walk The Line, and
Across the Universe, to name a few.
HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR STUDIOS BRAND
CURRENT?
You have to manage and promote the brand
actively. We host many industry events here, and
were very active with the Grammy organization.
We also work with several schools and participate
in reciprocal referrals with other studios.
Its about being creative instead of simply
surviving. You can always tell when a studio is in
survival modethats when sh tanks are put in
the lobby to show that theres life in the building.
Were fortunate that this city has a vibrant and
vital music scene, and were happy to be a big
part of it.
ARE NEW ARTISTS WELCOME AT YOUR
STUDIO?
Of course they are. We have a variety of
rooms and resident producers, engineers and
artists to help them get the recording they want.
In fact, were always looking for talented artists
and music that excites us. If we like an act, well
help them out and let agents, managers and other
industry pros know about them. We might even
sign them to our label.
HOW IS YOUR INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
DIFFERENT?
We dont call them interns. Theyre assistant
engineers and we actually pay them. And every
person we take on is a candidate for hire. We spend
a lot of time training and standing by them so that
they could become full-edged, working engineers.
We also have an all-female tech staff. I dont
know of any other studio that promotes females
like we do. n fact, our senior engineer is female.
WESTLAKE STUDIOS
West Hollwood, CA
Steve Burdick
http://thelakestudios.com
Westlake Studios has two locations and a long,
colorful history. Founded as Westlake Audio
in the early 1970s, it is credited as one of the
rst commercial studios to have acoustically
standardised interchangeable rooms. They
were so popular that Westlake-style rooms
spread to other studios by the late 70s. Well-
known artists whove recorded at Westlake,
include Michael Jackson, Alanis Morissette,
Dave Matthews, Madonna, Rihanna, Britney
Spears, Nine Inch Nails and Justin Bieber.
HOW DO YOU MAINTAIN YOUR STUDIOS
PROFILE?
We design new ad campaigns on a regular
basis to keep the name fresh. Were a pretty well-
known studio, but even so, you have to keep your
name out there. Most of our business comes from
referrals and word-of-mouth. But a good portion
also comes from our ads and audio programs.
WHAT DO YOU OFFER INDEPENDENT ACTS?
We cater to a lot of independent artists and
labels. Although were best known for the stars
that have recorded here, we welcome up-and-
coming artists as well. Well talk with them and
gure out a reasonable budget that they can
afford. Sometimes well even offer a discount,
depending on the circumstances and how much
time they need. Were here to help. Sometimes
well give artists advice about the recording pro-
cess and how to promote their record. They could
even showcase here if they want. Customer ser-
vice is a very important part of Westlake. And
we try to make everyone comfortable and meet
whatever needs they might have.
ZODLOUNGE MUSIC PRODUCTIONS
Nashville, TN
Brett Vargason
http://zodlounge.com
ZodLounge is a hybrid studio, located in
Nashville, TN, that focuses on discovering,
developing and promoting new talent. Founded
by veteran players who needed a change
after 25 long years on the road, it is a studio
for musicians run by musicians. Because of
that, theres a palatable passion that envelops
this operation. Co-founder Brett Vargason
obviously loves music and enjoys working with
new talent. And the studios efforts appear to
be paying off. In 2011, their acts garnered 30
song placements, and nailed down 11 so far
this year. Vargason also notes that some major
placements will be revealed later in the fall.
WHY DID YOU CREATE ZODLOUNGE
MUSIC?
We thought the industry needed it. Theres no
artist development going on anymore. Artists are
pretty much left to their own devices and have
to do it all on their own. And many of them dont
understand that it takes more than just producing
music to build a career. There are a lot of other
factors involved.
With our experience and connections, we
feel that we can guide young artists and provide
access to the tools and people they need to
sustain a career.
WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO ARTIST
DEVELOPMENT?
Our goal is to make them independently suc-
cessful. But, we like doing it in an organic way
without any gimmicks. If necessary, well hook
them up with other professionals so they can
learn the craft. Most importantly, we want them to
be happy and treated well.
WHAT SERVICES DO YOU PROVIDE?
We do almost everything. And well do whatever
kind of deal makes sense, whether its a work-
for-hire, spec deal or a combination. It depends
on the artist, the situation and what we think is
best for them. Well do whatever it takes, you
name it: production, promotion, even distribution.
In fact, were starting to cover so many areas of
the business were almost operating like a label.
But the bottom line is we really enjoy seeing
our artists careers move forward. Because we
believe when the artist wins, we win.
For further information about any of the above
studios, please see MCs Annual Directory of
Recording Studios, starting on p. 60.
We also have an all-female
tech staff. I dont know of any
other studio that promotes
females like we do.
We feel that we can guide
young artists and provide
access to the tools and people
they need to sustain a career.

SONG BIZ SONGWRITER PROFILE
By Dan Kimpel
A
s president of Leiber & Stoller Music Publishing, the company found-
ed by the late songwriter Jerry Leiber and his collaborator Mike
Stoller, Randy Poe has represented a monumental catalog of songs
including Stand By Me, Hound Dog and Kansas City. Along the way,
Poe has penned essential music business books including Skydog: The
Duane Allman Story, Squeeze My Lemon: A Collection of Classic Blues
Lyrics, and the ASCAP/Deems Taylor Award winning Music Publishing: A
Songwriters Guide.
With Stalking the Red Headed Stranger or How to Get Your Songs
into the Hands of the Artists Who Really Matter Through Show Business
Trickery Underhanded Skullduggery, Shrewdness and Chicanery, as
Well as Various Less Nefarious Methods of Song Plugging: A Practical
Handbook and Historical Portrait, Poe makes good on an extravagantly
hyperbolic title.
The premise is Poes travel across land and sea to meet up with Willie
Nelson in Canada at the bequest of Jerry Leiber to pitch Leiber & Stollers
The Girls I Never Kissed. But Poe shares an inventory of essential truths
that apply to any business.
The genesis of the book was a dinner conversation with two friends
shortly after his Canadian sojourn. Says Poe, One said, That would make
a great magazine article. I didnt think about it for four years. I was working
on another book, but my editor said they had to put off the publication of
it and asked if I had anything else. I told him this story and he said, That
would make a great magazine article. But I wanted to create something for
a bigger audience and I realized this could be a book about song plugging.
Given the stern directive to meet with Nelson, Poe says that other than
brief meetings he didnt know him. Fortuitously, someone he did know
John McEuen from the Nitty Gritty Dirt Bandwas on tour with Nelson.
Now how do I tell the story of song plugging? Poe asks. Since the
Truth is Stranger than Fiction chapter was a clich, I thought, Dont ght it,
go with itthis will be a book of clichs. The reasons clichs exist are that
they are all little snippets of truth. I wanted this book to be about the truth of
the music business.
Poes path: from a temp in a music publishing office to the Executive
Director of the Songwriters Hall of Fame and ultimately to Leiber & Stoller
Music Publishing is lled with serendipity. Its been an entire life of co-
incidences, he concurs. You have to be lucky. But at the same time you
have to create your own luck as best you can.
A deep love of roots music is palpable in Poes prose. I come from You
have to love what youre doingyou have to want to do it, and meet those
people you need to meet, not some way to leap up the ladder per se. I
wanted to meet Mike and Jerry because I admired their accomplishments. It
never occurred to me they would hire me to run their company.
Among the narrative passages that reveal Poes gifts as a raconteur is his
recollection of the pitch session on Nelsons tour bus. Returning to his hotel
after blazing on what he speculates must have been a joint infused with
dried magic mushrooms, he writes, There was an entire carnival going on
in my brain: rollercoasters, Tilt-A-Whirls, cotton candy, juggling clowns with
giant feet, carnies with bad teethall vying for my attention.
Vibrant hallucinations notwithstanding, Poe relates that the essential
skills of connecting songs to artists requires a knowledge of musical history,
an inexhaustible list of contacts, a deep catalog, and utter fearlessness.
Randy Poe appreciates how, in this era of music, artists and songwriters
can maintain control. If you create something youre proud of and throw it
up on YouTube, people can hear it, get excited and it can grow and turn
into something. I love the fact that the music world is the way it is now, as
opposed to being controlled by corporate structures determining what youre
going to do and when and where youre going to do it.
