For those who create music in a recording studio, the promise of a well-equipped work space goes beyond the right gear. Artists, producers and engineers know that many studios carry on the spirit of legendary sessions and past hits - and many hope to tap that energy for their tracks today.
Largely credited as the birthplace of rock’n’roll, the famed Sun Studio opened in 1950, attracting icons including Elvis Presley and B.B. King. More recently, it has hosted John Mellencamp, U2 and Chris Isaak with chief recording engineer Ples Hampton crediting its storied history and current PBS live performance series as helping to maintain its relevance.
