Recording Studio

Mason Music’s Recording Studio

is one of the hidden gems in Birmingham. Whether you’re a music superstar or an aspiring musician looking to record your first song, our Recording Studio has everything you need to make the kind of music you want. Run by trustworthy, seasoned producers and engineers using top-of-the-line gear, our Recording Studio can help send you on your way to reaching your recording goals. Be sure to follow us on Instagram to see who is in the studio and what we are up to.

Designed by a Nashville-based studio designer, the Mason Music Recording Studio contains a mixing room, a tracking room, a vocal booth and an iso booth for amps. Though this studio is located in a home, it was constructed from the ground up with noise isolation and acoustic treatments as a priority. New gear is constantly popping up at the studio since much of the revenue generated from the studio is reinvested to continually improve its quality and capabilities.

Our producers are well connected in the Birmingham music scene and have the best session players on call for whatever needs you may have. We work with a wide range of genres, but specialize in rock, pop, alt-rock, singer-songwriter and country. In addition to engineering and producing, we can write, co-write and arrange music for our artists. Scroll down for artist lists, equipment lists and rates or Contact Us for more information.

  • Matthew Mayfield - "[Will Mason] understands the ins and outs of making a song an experience. Dynamics and variety are so important and Will never fails to bring more than enough ideas to the table to help make each tune shine. He's dedicated to the art of it all, and at the end of the day—that's the kind of person I need with me in the recording studio."

     

  • Sarah Simmons - “They have great equipment, but more importantly, they take great care in everything they do…the environment is warm, inspiring and a safe place! They help you get to where your heart wants to be with your sound. Definitely check it out!”

     

    • Hear Sarah's New Freedom Album  ("Freedom," "War In My Mind," "Staring at the Sun" and "One More Day," co-written with Will Mason and produced at the Mason Music Recording Studio. "Bridges" also engineered, produced and mixed at the Mason Music Recording Studio.)
    • See the new release of "Honey I'm Fine," produced and mixed at Mason Music Recording Studio
  • Corey Nolen (Following the Song) - "When I decided to record my last EP "Following The Song," my producer and I decided to record the initial tracks of the project live. The Mason Music Recording Studio proved to be a great option for this. It was large enough with its isolation rooms to single out instruments/vocals as needed but intimate enough for us to feel like we were working on the songs in the same space. The result was a project that I'm very proud of. We got a great sound and because of how we were able to track, we found the character we were looking for with a live studio recording."

  • Matt Sanderlin (Parishop) - "Working in the Mason Music Recording Studio is truly like recording at home, away from home. The creative chemistry with the space is just immediate. Brad Lyons is one of the most versatile producers I've worked with, and his ability to craft and layer sounds is limitless. My favorite studio in town."
