the studio

La La Land is an analog/digital-based recording studio in Louisville, Kentucky, built around a vintage, 40-channel Trident TSM40 board (originally built for the famed Record Plant in Sausalito, CA). With a full array of classic analog gear and a 2500-square-foot tracking room with three isolation booths, it’s a perfect environment to create, explore, and record any dream album. The studio has been a creative home over the years to Jim James, Ray Lamontagne, Jake Shears, GRLWood, Strand of Oaks, Joan Shelley, Boa, and countless other national, regional, and local artists.

La La Land is within a few hours drive from Chicago, IL, Nashville, TN, Cincinnati, OH, and Bloomington, IN.
