After 10 years in Long Island City, Continental Recording Studio is closing it’s doors. As of April 1st, we will be operating out of Shelter Island Sound Studios in Chelsea. This is a big moment for us, and we will be working alongside industry greats Steve Addabbo, Bob Power, Jon Gordon and Rich Ahee in a first class studio complex.

We are incredibly grateful to all the artists, colleagues, and friends who have called Continental their home over the past decade. Please contact us at 718-709-9052 or reach out directly for booking and see you in the new studio!

We recently sat down with the fine folks from Audio Mentor to talk gear, mixing, and all things music.

"What fascinated us was that Continental studio still prefers to use analog recording gear, despite the trend to produce in the box. First opened their doors in 2008 and going by the tagline, ‘traditional recording for the modern musician’, makes Continental worth considering the next time you’re in New York and looking to record and produce music."

New full length solo LP from The Brooklyn What's Evan O'Donnell recorded at Continental. This album seriously rocks!

"Wham! Brand new full length. Tracked this at Continental Recording Studio with my fellow Brooklyn What alumni before leaving the country last summer, one of a slew of new solo records from the group of us, coming over the next year or so. Shadowy, homemade indie rock&roll, the last of it's kind for a bit, I am now writing heavy metal gamelan in Indonesia...Shout out to Kensington in the winter, this is for you."

- Evan O'Donnell

The degree to which NYC's artistic culture has been sacrificed for clean streets and high returns is astounding. Sad to see such a great studio go!


"As the city becomes more of a corporate and condo island, some of us wish for a better balance between money and art, between progress and preservation, and we hope that one day we will see a reversal of the destruction of conscience and community we are witnessing” The Magic Shop Recording Studio

After 28 years, a studio favored by Lou Reed and David Bowie, among many other famous musicians, will shut its doors next month.
