Newtown Recorders

Newtown Recorders Butler Recording is the production company of music producer/sound engineer Chris D. Butler, working mostly out of Butler's studio, Newtown Recorders, in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

The gear list is deep, the large-ish space sounds amazing, the $$ is right.

Mission: Butler Recording At Newtown Recorders is dedicated to fostering DIY music/sound artist development by providing an affordable, ego-free production environment combined with no compromise audio recording quality.
