Team & Community

We work with engineers and assistants who have the skills and experience to get the best from every studio and our in-house technicians keep the equipment in pristine condition. For our bookings staff, the mantra is “nothing is too much trouble”.

In addition to our four bookable studios, Strongroom is home to a thriving community of record producers, songwriters, managers, labels, publishers and production companies. At the heart of all this is the iconic Strongroom Bar, rounding off the welcoming, musical atmosphere that Strongroom is renowned for worldwide.
