Sound City Studios

Sound City Studios was a recording studio incorporated in 1969, located in Van Nuys, Los Angeles, California. The facility had previously been a showroom and recording studio of the British company, Vox. Sound City contributed its signature analog sound to more than 100 certified gold and platinum albums. The studio was privately held from 1970, until it closed its commercial studio services in May 2011. It is now reserved for the exclusive use of its tenants.

Artists who have recorded at the studios include Neil Young, Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Grateful Dead, REO Speedwagon, Tom Petty, Nirvana, Pat Benatar, Santana, Rage Against the Machine, Buckingham Nicks, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, Foo Fighters, Elvis Costello, Metallica, Barry Manilow and Foreigner. It was here that Mick Fleetwood met Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks for the first time and subsequently invited them to join Fleetwood Mac. In 2013, a documentary on the recording studio was made by Dave Grohl simply titled Sound City.
