hiSTORY

The humble beginnings of the studio began in 2009 where Heath began working on records out of a shabby but useful studio he put together in the garage of a rented house in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles.

 

The studio as it's known today began construction in the summer of 2011.

Heath spent about a month coming up with the design and set about building the studio on his own with occasional help and advice from family and friends and a few contractors when necessary. The initial construction took just over 4 months. Over the years there have been numerous upgrades made to improve the acoustics and aesthetic of the studio.
