With the ever growing amount of talent in El Paso, the big question for musicians is "where to record our album". Unless you have the money for a home studio, you'll need to go someone to get it done professionally. Well luckily we have a ton of recording studios in town so you can call now.

Beacon Hill:

The same recording studio where Khalid, Miguel & Alina Baraz all recorded albums; you can go to Beacon Hill at 6430 Gateway Blvd E (next to Guitar Center).

Star City Studios:

Not only is it a studio, but it's a rehearsal space & we've seen a couple of artists give private acoustic shows at Star City Studios; Scott Stapp, Dorothy, The Glorious Sons. 120 W Castellano Dr.

Genuine Reference Studios:

Created by Beatriz Cruz De Leon & Christopher Serrano of Feline Fox, GRS is a studio to help local artists find a spot to record. Names like Liz Tina, Rivers Ventura, Krystal Poppin have all recorded & filmed at GRS. 3945 Doniphan Park Circle, Suite B.

Brainville Studios: Another independent studio created to help small artists record is Brainville Studios in Sunland Park, NM. 1900 Appaloosa Dr.

Nevermore Records:

The studio that's partnered with the Let There Be Rock music school, Nevermore Records is the home of the local bands Tragic Landing & Texas Cut Throat but any band can record with them. They're located in East El Paso & you can book an appointment on their website.

Darkside Studios:

Started by Anthony Gonzales, Darkside Studios is the place that helped local bands like Steellake, Illum & Yolotli record their albums. You can book them online on Instagram.

Sound Stage 9:

Just like Let There Be Rock, not only is it a music school where kids can learn to play music but they also have a recording studio as well. They have 2 locations: 11601 Pellicano Dr & 750 Sunland Park Dr.

Sonic Ranch: 

And finally we have Sonic Ranch, arguably the biggest & most well known studio in the El Paso area. They've recorded a number of big artists like Bullet For My Valentine, Whiskey Myers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs & many more. 20200 Tornillo, TX.
