Current Featured Artist-

Cletis Carr

Cletis finished recording an e.p. at Soundshed in 2012.
He wanted to create a sound similar to Ryan Adams' album 'Ashes & Fire' - nice choice!
This song is my particular favourite.
I used M/S stereo on his guitars to acheive a full guitar sound that would fill up the sparse stereo image

Why Record with Soundshed Music - A relaxed, informal Creative space for Indie Artists

Indie Recording Artists need a studio where they can feel safe enough to take risks with their music, the kind of risks that will make their music unique and will stand-out from the rest of the crowd.

You don't want a 'cookie-cutter' approach to your music, using musicians playing the same old riffs and structures.

Soundshed Studio has been specifically set up with a warm, friendly, homely atmosphere so Songwriters & artists can feel totally comfortable and relaxed. We've created a perfect environment to help you make your music the best it can be.

Soundshed Studio is situated at the top of the Blue Mountains; far enough removed from city & suburban pressures to help your creative juices flow, but still an easy drive

Whether you are work-shopping demos or recording a full album for International release, Soundshed Studio is a state-of-the-art recording facility (Neumann mics, Chandler & TC Pre-amps, Nuendo DAW etc), but we've made sure the technology is kept transparent. Your comfort and your performance quality and creative flow are our priority

There are a lot of songwriters out there and every one of them these days has their own CD. As a songwriter you need a recording that stands out from the crowd and reflects your originality

At Soundshed Music we provide a recording service for songwriters who need their songs produced to a professional standard, ready for Independent Commercial CD or ONLINE release or submission to Publishers, Record Companies, Song Competitions, Film or TV broadcast

Your song will have real instruments: guitars, bass, drums, piano and keyboards, percussion - even vocals if you need - all world-class quality

We can deliver any musical style you need: Folk, Rock, Pop, Country, Hard Rock, Bush Bands. We've even produced many Kids' Albums and 'Block-Buster style' Big Band productions

Our Rates

Our hourly rate is $88 (AUD).

Although we may seem more expensive at first glance than other Recording Studios, our rates include Stewart Peters as Engineer, Producer and highly experienced Session Musician. Stewart plays world-class standard Guitars, Vocals, Drums, Bass guitar, Percussion and Keyboards. At other Studios you will almost certainly have to pay for additional Session Musicians: Drummer, Bass, Keyboards etc. But at Soundshed Music all these instruments are included in the one price.

In our experience choosing the hourly rate proves to be the cheapest alternative. Stewart is vert fast at getting the sounds his artists want -which results in cheaper sessions for you


Some Quotes from recent Clients regarding Stewart's creativity & skills as a Musician, Producer and Recording Engineer:

"... with Stewart Peters' amazing talents in songwriting and Production skills ... it has transformed (my song) into a professionally arranged, amazing song I can be proud of ..."

" ... I was able to bring my rough sample to him and we worked through the song bit by bit until I was satisfied with the result I was looking for. A very professional, no rush service ...

"... the finished product is superb quality and much more than I expected..."

" ... I can only thank Stewart for turning my dreams into reality and making the whole process fun. Good people - great music"

"... I've recorded at many studios in the past, but I want that 'Soundshed sound': that intimate sound of my brushes hitting the snare ..." - session jazz/ folk drummer
