List of services

Area 51 Studios is much more than just a recording studio. Yes we have had sessions recording vocals, rhythm sections, accordion, trumpet, upright and electric bass, and much more. Yes we have had big name artists such as Usher, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, French Montana, LL Cool J, ASAP Rock and Ferg, DMC, George Benson, Esperanza Spaulding, and many more, while catering to just as many independent and “out of pocket” clients. Yes we have done voice over sessions with Susan Sarandon, Wallace Shawn, Hill Harper, Didi Conn as well as many other talented actors and actresses, We did record the band members from the Allman Brothers, have had the Neville Brothers, as well as recorded for a number of reality TV shows and dialogue for numerous TV and film projects. But we do more! We now offer creative services. We can help you score your next film or TV project or create music for your next advertisement. We can help you find an engineer or producer for your next project whether it is at our facility or not, or we can help connect you with some very talented musicians or background singers. Not to mention we are a very private facility that is competitively priced in a great location.

So why not give us a call for any and all your recording needs? You’ll see why so many artists, engineers, and producers call us home.

Some updates on Area 51 Studios

The summer has been hot, our AC has been cold, and we have been chock full of some great sessions. George Benson, Ryan Leslie, Talib Kweli, LL Cool J, Cassie, Hot Rod, Conor, Rodney Jerkins, One Love, and MORE! Our close friends and family The Closers (CJ, Joe Boom, and Infinity) have had some great placements these last few months and we congratulate them and wish them continued success. Area 51 has added a JZ V47 mic to our collection and we have had nothing but positive feedback with it. Fantastic sounding vocal mic! Roey was kind enough to bring his JZ BH-1 mic in and it is sounding great with acoustic guitar tracking. John Legend put our Vintage U-47 microphone to use and raved about the sound. We have some other exciting things in the works (new upgrades and new room!) and will post them as they become concrete. We thank everyone who has supported us and look forward to making new friends and hopefully long lasting relationships with you all! Come and see why so many now call us home!
