We asked Gorbals of Gorbals Sound Studios the following questions.
Tell us about yourself
Opened in 2011, Gorbals Sound Studio owner, Kenny Haughey, decided to open a world class recording studio in the heart of the Gorbals to help in the regeneration of the Gorbals and Laurieston area.
Designed by Calum Malcolm, featuring 6 isolation booths, with incredible sight lines, Gorbals Sound can comfortably record most sizes of ensemble.
Why are you involved in Scottish music?
As a commercial recording studio, we are open to all genres of music production but have also been blessed with being a central base in Scotland for Scottish musicians…
including Celtic Connections.
Any particular career highlights?
Good folk, making good music.
After Paul Buchanan’s ‘Mid Air’, Capercaillie’s 2013 ‘At The Heart of It All’ led to a long and prosperous relationship with Scottish music to date.
From the number 1 album ‘Lost Songs of St.Kilda’ to RURA’s forthcoming release, we’ve hosted countless incredible musicians, producers and engineers over the last decade.
If Gorbals Sound Studios can offer expertise in the recording process of an artist’s journey from first idea to final master, then our mission is complete.
What are your plans for the future?
Enjoying last year’s amazing albums, such as; ‘And So We Gather’ by Kim Carnie, ‘Bloom’ by Siobhan Miller and ‘Energy Islands’ by FARA
As well as awaiting the release of Gillibride MacMillan, and Graham Mackenzie’s latest masterpieces.
