The Doghouse Studio
Recording & Mixing in Nashville, TN
Tucked away on the west side of town in a quiet neighborhood sits an unsuspecting gem, the Doghouse Studio. A studio in the music community since the 1980s, the Doghouse is one of Nashville’s best-kept secrets, having hosted an historic roster of recording artists, engineers, and producers.
Originally constructed as a recording studio, the Doghouse was over-built by its original owner with extra consideration for sound isolation from the outside world. You can feel the comfort of seclusion when you walk in, as you enter your own private sanctuary.
An assortment of fine equipment is at your fingertips and we pride ourselves in keeping everything in top working order. Vintage analog and current digital technology combined with a well-tuned control room that is immediately comfortable makes working at the Doghouse easy and familiar.
All activities are accommodated here, from tracking to mixing, and the Doghouse has developed a niche in being an especially comfortable space for recording vocals. From Dolly Parton to Alison Krauss and many more celebrated artists, the Doghouse is a singer-songwriters haven. Why do they come here? We hear words like ‘refuge, tranquil, peaceful, unassuming’. The Doghouse is a place where you can relax and be yourself. Stepping inside you feel the hush and comfort of a creative shelter as everything else dissolves behind you. It’s a creative enclave, a secret hideout that makes you feel lucky to have stumbled upon it.
You owe it to yourself to come and feel what can only be understood in person. You’ll be pleasantly surprised when you drive onto the property in West Meade to the unsuspecting studio where it’s been happening since the 1980s.
