The Recording Issue

The Rose City is chock-full of incredible rooms and basement spaces all dedicated to the process of capturing the sounds of our local musicians as well as national and international talent. In issue #16, we’ll take a look at the economics behind running a studio in a changing city while highlighting notable spaces, producers and engineers who span all genres of the local scene. We'll also hear new music from Laura Veirs, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Moorea Masa, Matt Dorrien, Ezza Rose, The Pariahs, and BlackWater HolyLight, and learn how to set up your home studio.
